I have tried this extension on 2 sites and both present the same problems:

1. The Share button 'doubles up' the page URL, e.g. www.tennysonplayers.org.uk/http://www.te...ers.org.uk/home.html
2. The Send button returns an error in the form of : The page at /http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tennysonplayers.org.uk%2Fhome.html could not be reached.
3. The Link is Liked on Facebook in the format : www.facebook.com/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tennys...s.org.uk%2Fhome.html (which gives a Page not found error)

I have tried disabling SEO friendly URLs in Joomla but this has not helped. I'm pretty sure I have set up the application correctly in FB.

The 2 sites are:

www.tennysonplayers.org.uk
www.animaltelepathy.co.uk

Both are running Joomla 1.5.24 with the latest version of the extension (3.6.1)

Can any light be shed on this please?

Thanks in anticipation

I just found another extension (free!) which does work. I'm going to use it on the www.tennysonplayers.org.uk website instead of yours, leaving the www.animaltelepathy for you to look at and try to figure out what's wrong. I can wait 48 hours but after that I'll have to change the extension on that site too.

Thanks

Hi,

Seems something wrong with configuration.

In Advanced Parameters of plugin what do you have selected under Base URL Method and what is entered in Custom Base field?

Select JURI::base(); under Base URL Method settings and leave Custom Base setting blank and then clear cache and test.

Regards

Those are the settings I've been using, although I have also tried pretty much every other combination as well!
