I want to add a Facebook Fan page link to my site. I copied the HTML code from Facebook but when I go to put it on the site and press ok, nothing happens. Is Yola not compatible with this option?

Hi-

Are you pasting it into a text box? For that code to work, you need to drop an HTML widget onto the page and paste the code into there.

I recently added one to this site, is this what you mean?

Yes, that is just the kind of box I want. Not sure why nothing happens when I put the code in?

Under the type of widget to add when I am on Facebook I choose other out of the 3 selections which were eblogger and typepad. Should I have picked one of those instead?

Time for me to go to sleep - I guess I will check tomorrow and see if you were able to come up with any ideas. I can always post the entire coding for someone else to look at tomorrow if you can let me know what I need to put in front and behind so all the coding shows. Sorry I do not know what to do.

Hi Katie,

Would be great if you can past the code in here so we can investigate this issue further. You can use the following program to add the code on here so the code is displayed - http://www.punky.co.za/convert.php

Here's how to use it: Simply delete any existing code that is in the code box. Then paste your HTML code in there. Click on "encode". The code will be encoded, then copy this encoded code and paste it in here for us to have a look at.

Here is the code. Can you look at it and see if something is wrong with it?

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://static.ak.connect.facebook.com/js/api_lib/v0.4/FeatureLoader.js.php/en_US"></script><script type="text/javascript">FB.init("778b7348a6f86854ccd08a51fff21fce");</script><fb:fan profile_id="153163060242" stream="" connections="10" width="300"></fb:fan><div style="font-size:8px; padding-left:10px"><a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Moms-Fun-Money/153163060242">Moms Fun Money on Facebook</a> </div>

Not sure why nothing happens when I put the code in HTML.

Well, if finally worked. I did not do anything different, Yola must have just been sick at the time!
