    1. You need to put the code-1 after the complete body line..I guess you placed it in between that's why you are getting these errors..Place it in the next line..If you still face any problem, send me your template backup at admin[at]unziptech.com

  9. Hello Zafar Bhai
    after adding the facebook like box.
    one line is shown on the left top corner in which it is written
    "expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'> "
    how to remove this line.
    And there is nothing like "body" in my blog
    i had just this " the symbol after that the fb like box is coming but it is showing the above line .PLEASE TELL HOW RECTIFY THE PROBLEM.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hello, I guess you placed the code-I at wrong place. It should be placed after the mobileClass'> which completes the opening body tag in your blog template..search for "expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'> " and place the code-I after this line..It will solve your problem..

    ReplyDelete
  11. yeh baat tum ne phele nahi bataya tha.
    ki is code ke baad place karna hai.
    please change in your tutorial.

    1. Brother, I have clearly mentioned it in this tutorial that you need to put the code after the body tag..Some templates have more arguments in body tag just like your have in your template ("expr:class........") and some templates have the simple body tag with no arguments..

  25. I appreciate your efforts. But i think the HTML/Java Script code i.e the 1st code should be placed after div class=post footer. It has worked perfectly in my case. Anyway your explaination was quiet good & understandable.

    1. Thanks for this appreciation..Well generally we put all the java scripts in the head section..but in this case, i wrote what facebook developers have asked to do on the facebook developers page..Its good that it worked even in the footer section..that means it won't affect the load time of rest of your page..
