I am sure that many of you are not shocked when I write, that Facebook has bugs. Introducing new services on almost weekly basis (just check Facebook’s unofficial news source and see for yourself) and not fixing crucial functionalities like Facebook Insights statistics, or Facebook Plugins implementation.
Plugins installation is one of those bugs that are important enough to slow down your installation plans to … absolute maximum (in other words: there is no way without it). That was a bad message. A good one is, that while being buggy, Facebook is unintentionally still offering a way around.
Not all the Facebook new plugins and functionalities need an APP ID for the installation code. Nevertheless, there are some that required it – for example adding a fb:comment to your page. To set up fb:comment to your page, you need to follow Facebook’s instructions . As you can see, APP ID is an obligatory element for a succesful installation.
I am far away from being a technical guy (girl..?), so I am thankful for HowTo’s for Dummies. In the end the installation does not look that difficult. Yeah.
It actually does not sound that difficult. If you need a Facebook app ID, visit Facebook’s Setup Page and request it.
The aggresive part comes now, when the page becomes blank and does not really want to talk to you in that moment. Looks like the picture below, looks familiar?
1.Login to Facebook
2. Go to Facebook Developers Application page
3. From all those unsuccesful trials, choose one app that you set up for a target before
4. Within the description, you will find APP ID
5. And now stop kicking the table, it’s done!
The only thing that left is to paste the APP ID to the installation code. Happy facebooking!
