Hello Everyone...

I have implemented the Facebook like button on my site in English with no problem. However, when I tried using the same methods for the same site once I translated in Spanish but it does not work. When I run it through FB Linter to debug I get this message....

Scrape Information
Error Parsing URL: Error parsing input URL, no data was scraped.

Now here are are my meta tags...

<meta property="og:site_name" content="Tips 21 - El Mejor Sitio para Fotos y Mas"/>
<meta property="og:title" content="name of page"/>

<meta property="og:url" content="http://tips21.com/es/lindo-bebe-pensativo.html"/>

<meta property="og:type" content="article"/>

<meta property="og:image" content="http://tips21.com/images/lindo-bebe-pensativo-fotos-de-bebes-hermosos.jpg"/>

<META NAME="description" CONTENT=" description here."/>
I have searched and looked trying to find the answer.. Can anyone please point me in the right direction or tell me what I may be doing wrong? I am using Dreamweaver CS5 btw...

Thanks for your help.

    That is weird, it should work :s

    Have you tried:
    A Spanish version of the Facebook like button?
    Asking on a Spanish web design forum?

    If all else fails you can always just have a link to the Facebook page of the user/company

    Your clue is in the error message: " Error parsing input URL"

    You have a stray closing div tag in the head section, and the FB parser is choking on it.

    First thing to do when you have problems with this kind of thing is to validate your HTML, THEN go looking for other problems.

    Thanks guys. I have gotten it to work but not the same as the English pages. When someone likes a page it does not show up instantly as with the English and it just says "such a person" likes this link. Still trying to figure it out... But thanks for your responses. Much appreciated. Have an awesome day!
