Hello,

Here's the link on my site... all seems okay and when clicked the joomla article is posted to my Facebook feed, however, the links in the Facebook feed do not link back to the originating article. Can someone verify and identify the problem?

nakuluukulele.com/index.php/component/co...e/9-uncategorised/89

Much thanks!

it gets even weirder...

Something is redirecting the FB links to google.com. Once the link is redirected the url is no longer linked back to the original page. I tried all FF, Safari, and Chrome...same problem in all those browsers.

The Facebook Like and Share buttons are located on the url above. Can someone please help me diagnose this?

I am using version KA Facebook Like and Share version 3.6.1 on my joomla 1.7.0 installation. PHP version 5.3.10

I am also using TT Facebook Likebox in a module which I've disabled but the problem still persists.

Are you using any type of Domain Redirection and SEO extensions?

Also did you install JavaScriptSDK plugin?

Did you try XFBML mode or JavaScript Mode in plugin settings?

Okay I am beside myself... for the likes of me I can't figure this out and I can't find documentation on here that explains it all. I tried XFBML and JavascriptSDK with no luck.

If giving someone access to my site will help please let me know!

In your JavaScriptSDK plugin and select website in Choose Type setting. Did you change these default settings?

Khawaib,
Yes I have, at this point I've changed all kinds of settings and tried different combinations with varying results none of which worked. I am pretty sure my FB ID is correct too.

I have to leave for an hour or so but will be back later today.

I really appreciate your assistance. Thanks.

Seems you have some other problem on your website.

Your website is redirecting to this URL for some reason. pin-se.ru/acu?11

When clicked on Article heading on
nakuluukulele.com/index.php/component/co...e/9-uncategorised/89
it took me to this page which is strange.
pin-se.ru/acu?11

Ask your developer to have a look at it first and fix.

Plugin are posting the URL to Facebook okay now.

I think it is hacked, it is opening some Russian websites when I am clicking on some of the links.

probably best would be to start a fresh install and move your content to new site.
