Cannot display properly my website and my facebook page links

Post by Darloup » Mon Oct 10, 2016 5:09 am

Hello,

I have a web site and a facebook page which I have duly entered in my UCP.

Both these display perfectly on my profile page:

In memberlist.php, however, only my website is correctly displayed and the link works. My facebook page is displayed as Darloup. My facebook page is : https://www.facebook.com/Darloup

Image

And in the mini-profile in the topics, nothing displays, although I'm pretty sure I have the correct settings:

How can I please solve those irritating problems?

With my anticipated thanks, as always!

Henry

Hello Lumpy Burgertushie,

Yes, it is my facebook page. If I click on the link https://www.facebook.com/Darloup it's working perfectly and leads me on my page. As it is if you click on the contact facebook page in my profile.

What error message do you get?!
Regards,

Henry

No idea why you do! I assure you that it's working perfectly for me!

Anyone else having this weird problem?

If you click on the facebook link in my profile (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1290464) it does lead to my facebook page.

Same thing happens if you click on my facebook link in "Contact" in this very message (in my mini-profile to the right of this post).

Hola Mick,

But WHY when it's working perfectly for me? This is driving me crazy!!! Has facebook changed its settings? Is it a question that the facebook link is now a http[b][u]S[/u][/b]?

P.S.: I have now understood that, in the latest version of phpBB, my facebook and website links are now regrouped under the "Contact" icon in my mini-profile (in the subjects).

I've just had a look on the FB support site, I know little or nothing about FB but there are a few hits if you Google search facebook 404 on profile page.

Well, I did a Google search with the key words facebook 404 on profile page and judging from the 20 first results (which I have visited), it could be because I entered Darloup instead of darloup in the phpBB field. I've just changed it. Can you please tell me if it solved the problem for you? Although, of course, it doesn't explain WHY I can access my facebook page and you can't when using Darloup...

It still doesn't work. I'd tried what you suggested before I wrote my previous post as well as trying with and without https, www and the 'D' in Darloup changed to 'd' etc. It seems FB recognises the URL with an upper or lower case 'd' but changes the 'd' to a 'D' by itself. I've seen suggestions it may be the username itself here and I've seen 'OG:' mentioned as well. You should have a look round their support site.

I have asked some people to try it. It works OK for them (as it works for me)!

I just tried again and it still gave me a 404. I tried an accounts profile page that I know exists without an issue. I don't have an FB account just so you know.

Ok, here is what's happening.

You MUST connect to facebook to access Darloup's profile.

If not, you're "banned". Visitors don"t have any access.
