Hi Charlotte, There are a several ways that you can create links from your website to Facebook. The SiteBuilder provides you with two options. I noticed your site was built with SiteBuilder (desktop version), so here is a screenshot showing you where to access the feature.

Just click the Communication tab, then you'll see the Facebook Like icon, or the Social Networking link.



Then just follow the prompts on the screen.

Is there a way to do this on Sitebuilder Plus?

Hi Nancy4353,

Yes there is.

Exactly how do you want to make the link?

Hi Drew,

I'd like to have the little box which contains the most recent post from my Facebook page, and updates when I change the Facebook status.

Thanks,
Nancy

And just to add, I am trying this without the Sitebuilder Desktop version. This is from the web-based Sitebuilder.

Thanks,

Hi Nancy4353,

You have to get the feed code for your account from the Facebook developer's network.  Once you have the code, you can add it to your site using an HTML box in Sitebuilder.

Thanks

I'm using SiteBuilder Plus on a Mac and want my published pages to link to Facebook but the feature won't work when I try to show the update in Facebook. I've read all of the comments, but none seem to fit my exact problem. HELP!!!!

I'll take a look. Have you tried a different browser, just as a test?

I think we tried Chrome and had the same result.

I removed the connection from our end, but you will still have to login to your Facebook and make sure the Homestead app has been removed. Can you check for that and make sure it is removed?

There may have been a change in the Facebook API. We are investigating this

No this is a constant problem. It never seems to work even after doing what you suggest multiple times. Any more advice?

If the problem is that Sitebuilder is not posting to your Facebook page, it is more than just uninstalling the app. We also have to disconnect your account, so you can authorize Sitebuilder again. This tends to happen when Facebook makes an update to their API. Let us know if you would like us to disconnect Facebook. If the problem is something else, let us know.

Hi Loyd3683, I am not sure what you mean by link a page to Facebook. Do you just need to link text or an image to Facebook? or do you want to have a like or share button? Under the communication you can see the built in options for Facebook. There is a like button and you also have the Social networking button that has other options.

Ooops, Loyd3683, I just missed that you were using Plus. It's under Insert and Follow us.

Gail6462, What are you trying to do? Desktop does not have the social share and so will not install an app in Facebook. It does have the like and follow us options

Drew,

My facebook link is linked to my personal facebook page - not my business facebook.  I do not see any prompts to change the link.  Please help.

On the "Contact" page, there are social media icons at the bottom. If you click on the "f" for Facebook, the link takes you to my personal Facebook - not my business Facebook.

rebeccadixonlaw4397, You need to click on the social icons and then select Manage social icons. You need to enter your Facebook business page URL, and the others networks as well if necessary.

I'm trying to send my web updates to Facebook and am very frustrated with Facebook rejections of updates. This has been going on a long time. Last time, they had to reset something on the server before it worked again. It worked one time, then I was back where I started - unable to send my updates to Facebook.
