In progress Facebook Share Links to Login, Not Forum thread

Post by colograndma on November 11th 2013, 4:51 am

I have started sharing some of our forum threads on our Facebook group page.  At first, it seemed to work correctly - the link on FB would show the name of the thread being shared.  But now, following the same procedure, the link on FB is always just to our Login Page. (Yes, i am ligged in when i try this).

Do you know what might have caused the FB Share to stop functioning properly?  I did switch to a temporary holiday theme that was Invision instead of our normal phbb2 theme.  Could this ne what is causing the glitch?

Thank you for any information you might be able to share!!

just saw this thread and also tried the facebook share on a topic and it also goes to a log in page and not showing the share title thread, can only presume that it will only work if you are actually logged in to facebook so you can share the topic on their site.

tried tweet and that works perfect so think it may be to do with facebook doing things.

you can actually create a page on your site and create a facebook share button by getting the code from the web although this wouldn't help with topics.
