This is bizarre. I've put FB Like boxes on loads website (Silverstripe and others), but I just can't get this one to work!

I'm using the standard HTML5 Like Box (obtained from here: ), and inserted the Javascript right after the opening <body> tag and the plugin code elsewhere in the body.

However, all I end up with on pages is a pink box with the following:

This page contains the following errors:
error on line 20 at column 62: EntityRef: expecting ';'
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

Line 20 seems to be

js.src = "//";

This is the first website where I've used SS 2.4.10. Could this be part of the problem?

Is your Page using an HTML5 doctype?

Hi Willr

Thanks for your reply.

It turns out to be an error in the code generated by Facebook.

The 6th line generated was:

js.src = "//";

However, the ampersand needed to be changed to &amp;. Once that was done, it worked fine :)
