[b]Q:[/b] I am using the '[url=http://drupal.org/project/fb_social]Facebook social plugins integration[/url]' module to display facebook buttons on my site, but the share button won't display in IE8, they show up fine on FireFox and other browsers, how do I fix this?
[b]A:[/b] It seems that to get the buttons to display correctly in IE you need to add some facebook namespace references to your site's page template (page.tpl.php):
For the facebook buttons to display on IE you need to reference the facebook namspaces in the each page's tag. The folowing references should be added to your site's page template:
[b]NB[/b] Before you edit page.tpl.php make sure to back it up, as any mistakes made when editing this file can very easily prevent your website from displaying correctly (or at all)!
So edit your page.tpl.php file (should be found in your theme folder), and spot the line at the top which may look something like this:
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
You need to add the above two namespace references into the tag, so that the line should now look more like:
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
This worked a treak for us! For more information have a look here:
