    Adding "Facebook Page Like"

    I'm attempting to add a Facebook Page Like, but pasting my page url to the setup box won't work... it says address contains an invalid character. I'm pasting directly from url bar.

    Hi! So I just published my site and hoped my like button to my facebook page would work but it is not.  I have pasted in both sections of the code and both LIKE & SHARE boxes appear but only the share box will work.  Can anyone help to get my LIKE button to work and actually like my page! Thank you!

      Please note that your Social Settings are set to facebook.com/jake.weber.5454, whereas your Facebook Page Like is set to facebook.com/jakeweberofficial.

      The Like button is set according to the Social Settings. To modify these settings, please click Settings > Mobile settings.

      Hello Ann,


      Where on your site have you added this 'box'?  Please make sure to follow the instructions provided here in order to extract the correct code.

      Please also include the Facebook URL to the page you wish for the like button to correspond with.

    So exhausted by this problem about ready to just throw in the towel. I just saw a new comment posted on this thread--update notice was sent to my email with instructions that I believe I've followed before-- tried again, same result. There is simply no way to place a facebook like button on my flash page in wix. Instructions I followed are below, website is www.paranoidhuman.com. I just can't afford to keep pouring an agonizing amount of time into a project so small. 

    1. In the Wix Editor, go to Add and then go to Widgets. Under Widgets, click HTML.
    2. From the HTML Gallery, click Facebook Like. Your HTML Widget appears on your site.
    3. Click on the HTML Widget to select it.
    4. From the HTML Widget Property Panel on the right of the Editor, click Settings.
    5. In the Add HTML window, under Insert HTML code, in the second line of the code, replace www.wix.com(it appears immediately after href=) with your domain name (make sure you add http://www.yourdomain.com) .
    6. Click OK.
    Your Facebook Like button is set up!
    For more information about the Facebook Like button, click here.
    You will not be able to preview your HTML Widget in Preview Mode. You will only be able to view your HTML Widget on your published site. For more information, click here.


    ps I also tried getting code directly off facebook developers site per the following instructions (below)--- Didn't work. Any help out there? Anyone? 

    1. Go to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-box-for-pages/

    2. Fill in all the desired info. Then click 'GET CODE', copy the iframe code

    3. Go to your wix website, ADD< APPS < HTML just paste the iframe code.

    Check my result ;) https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-box-for-pages/

    You can view the comment here.

      We've visited your flash editor and succeeded to add a facebook like button in the editor, but haven't published your site in order to check it online.

      Please elaborate, at what stage exactly are you facing a problem?

    • bry379

      Replied by bry379 April 10, 2014

      Awesome, thanks for the response. Having no trouble finding the widget, entering in the relevant data into Widget settings, placing on my page. 

      Trouble is when I save/publish, look at the new site. No icon. Add a picture, change some text, easy. Add a facebook like button (and twitter as well) absolutely impossible. 

      Good luck.

      Is it possible you have an Avast antivirus extension installed on your browser? If so, please disable it and see if it makes any difference.

      Hey Dima!

      Definitely no Avast anti-virus, but I have BitDefender, which is a higher end anti-virus program. Should I try to temporarily disable its anti-virus program?

      Try this code instead (HTML5 tab instead of IFRAME, copy both boxes - if you'd like to edit the buttons). Make sure you use http://www.facebook.com/MakesMeParanoid with the HTTP:// before the URL. 


      <div id="fb-root"></div>
      <script>(function(d, s, id) {
        var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
        if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
        js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
        js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=290916087587859";
        fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
      }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
      <div class="fb-like" data-href="http://www.facebook.com/MakesMeParanoid" data-layout="button_count" data-action="like" data-show-faces="true" data-share="true"></div>


      I've tested it on a copy of your live site and it worked perfectly.

      Hi Bryan,


      I checked your site in Chrome and the Like box appears to be working perfectly from my end now:

      While browsing on the web, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict.

      Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.

      If the issue persists, please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.

      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.

      I am also able to see the like button. It seems like a local issue on you end.

      Therefore please try the following:


      1. Try disabling your internet security programs and try again (i.e. antivirus, firewall, etc.). It is preferable to try this while still connected to the modem directly. This is meant to assist us in determining the source of the problem that you're facing.
      2. Try connecting to Wix from a different computer that uses a different network to connect to the internet.


      If this issue is not solved, please specify the following details:

      1. What Operating System you're using (i.e. Mac OSX, Windows XP, etc.)
      2. What browsers you've tried - and include the version of the browser (can generally be found by going to Help > About within the browser).
      3. Your geographic location and which ISP you use.
      4. Which internet security programs you have installed on your computer (antivirus, firewall, etc.).

      Hey Noa! --  finally got around to testing the like button on another system. Yes, my friend was able to view the "like/share" button on chrome, so it appears that this is definitely a local issue on my end. 

      I tried disabling my BitDefender Anti-Virus AND firewall. I also disabled my Windows firewall. I was still unable to see the button on my chrome browser. Any other ideas? 

      Meanwhile, I would like to add a twitter button. Can you point me towards the best instructions for doing so on my Flash site.

      Hey Ritti--- thanks for the twitter link-- tried uninstall, reinstall of chrome but no change on visibility =( 

      Noa, I don't know if I told you this yet, but my friend tried from a different computer using chrome and was able to view the button. I'm still not able to see it. 

      1) My OS is Windows 8.1

      2) Chrome version is Version 34.0.1847.131 m 

      the IE version is:11.0.9600.17031 -- but it's visible in IE

      3) I'm in Vancouver Canada-- I think we're on Shaw, 

      4) I have Bit Defender which uses an anti-virus and a firewall (i've tried disabling both, as well as disabling the Windows firewall after it pops on automatically)

      Thanks for your continued work on this--

      Hi Bryan,

      If I understand correctly, you're saying you can view the button using IE?

      If so, surely there's an issue with your chrome browser. do you have any add-ons/extensions on your chrome? If you do, try disabling them.


      Please let us know in case the problem still exists.

    Can anyone assist me with the Facebook Like button?

    For some reason I have an extra Like button dead smack in the middle of my site.

    When I go to the editor, it's just showing in the spot I wanted it (top of page). 

    Does anyone know what it's still showing up on the actual site? 

    In case you can't go to the site (http://www.iamnotmyhairllc.com), I've added a screenshot here.

    Any suggestions and advice are welcome.

    Thanks in advance!
