  1. I have been using your plugin for a bit but then it all of a sudden stopped working. Niether my hosting company nor my web guy seems to be able to assist me in make this work again. As I am trying to get an agent to sell my book I need them to see my likes and now they are all gone. Do you have a recovery link or tab. I know nothing about coding so all I know how to do is click and follow instructions. Is there a fix for this. Right now I have (PressGraph) Facebook Like Version: 6.0.9. Please email me at lynda.harlos@sympatico.ca

    1. Hi Lynda,

      I’m planning an update with a migration tool for the websites that migrated from HTTP to HTTPs which is the main cause for such behaviour.

      I’ll keep you posted by email when the update is published.

      1. Thanks for getting back to me Ahmed. Will the update be soon as I have agents trying to look at my site to see how many likes I am getting and they are not working any more.
        I deactivate the plugin so when the update is done will it retrieve all the likes from before as well?
