When setting up my site, I wanted to use the nice ‘Facebook Like Button’. After searching the net, I found this blog Cordobo where is explained how you can add this button to your site.
After adding the code to my WordPress template, the button didn’t show up. I tried some modifications to the code, but to no success.
Then I started to search the internet and I only found topics about the Facebook Like Button not showing up in IE:
- Fix Facebook Like Button Not Showing Up in Internet Explorer [IE7, IE8, IE9]]
- Issue with Facebook Like button in Windows Firefox (on flash site)
- Like Button Not Working
I tried them all, but with no luck. I was blaming my local FireFox installation and was about to reinstall it. Then I thought of the plugins / addons I am using with FireFox.
– Shutting down Firebug – no luck
– Shutting down AdBlockPlus (ABP) – bingo!
So ABP is blocking the like button! @#$@!
To resolve this issue:
click on the ABP logo in your browser -> Preferences
Find the line that says ‘||facebook.com/plugins/like.php?*’ and empty the checkbox behind it. Now refresh your page and all should be well!
