I got this FaceBook profile for my upcoming website and I can't get the Subscribe button to show, NOT EVEN ON FaceBook's page!


Now, if you go here on FaceBook's page where we build the Subscribe button:


And add the above link, it will show nothing.

The link you've provided is for a person's profile - it looks like you've created a people profile and not a page, hence no subscribe.

//update after comment

Go here to enable subscribe for your page and here to generate a subscribe button for your site.

enter image description here

Code for subscribe for your page

<iframe src="//www.facebook.com/plugins/subscribe.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpages%2FAxonn-Says%2F372194956141393&amp;layout=standard&amp;show_faces=true&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;font&amp;width=450" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>

I also created a page. This one: facebook.com/pages/Axonn-Says/372194956141393 . And it doesn't work for the page either. – Axonn Feb 9 '12 at 11:11
@Axonn I've updated the answer. – toomanyairmiles Feb 9 '12 at 11:13
Ah! So first you have to go and enable Subscribe. Didn't know that! However, it still doesn't work, even though I enabled it ::- (. Not for my profile URL, not for the page either. – Axonn Feb 9 '12 at 11:20
@Axonn That's odd, perhaps you have to have a certain number of likes before they enable subscribe. There does seem to be an entry bar for some of the advanced features. – toomanyairmiles Feb 9 '12 at 11:39

Do you have an AppID ?

The JavaScript SDK requires that you register your website with Facebook to get an App ID (or appId). The appId is a unique identifier for your site that ensures that we have the right level of security in place between the user and your website. The following example shows how to load the JavaScript SDK once you have your appId:

Hope this helps

But wait, I am not making an application. I just need to use the Subscribe button. – Axonn Feb 9 '12 at 11:08
Oh, i tought that was for "Facebook" for registrations on your website. I forgot the new Facebook "Subscriptions" thingy. – jflaflamme Feb 9 '12 at 13:16
No biggie. Apparently there's something wrong with my account / or their API. It just doesn't work ::- (. Got to get in touch with them... – Axonn Feb 9 '12 at 15:50
