How To Fix Facebook Post Embeds On WordPress

Early first quarter of this year embedded Facebook posts stopped functioning on WordPress. Not just that it also extended to other platform like blogger, blog etc. so when you embed a Facebook post it will appear as a hyperlink which is not suppose to be so. Some folks argued that Facebook changes their API but embeds made on webpages still appear correctly. This issue has been without fix till now.

This is fix for embeds to work correctly you need to place a snippet of JavaScript including Facebook SDK on the header section of your site.

How To Fix WordPress Facebook Embeds
1. If you’re using Genesis, you can easily go to Genesis > Theme Settings > Header and Footer Script and paste the code in the head section. Using a different WP theme, you can get Header and Footer plugin to implement the code.

2. Copy the code below:

window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
xfbml : true,
version : 'v2.3'
}; (function(d, s, id){
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
js = d.createElement(s); = id;
js.src = "//";
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

3. And paste it in the site’s head section.
Thats all! Putting the code in your footer may not work correctly, it has to be in the head section.
