If it doesn’t work at first…

  • Check your settings to see that XFBML and Open Graph are enabled
  • Make sure there are no conflicting plugins also running.
  • If everything but the button appears, this means that you need to enable XFBML and/or Open Graph in the settings. If this does not work you need to make sure you have this code as your <HTML>:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US" xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
