To find out what is the issue, add the following line of code at line no. 10 above:


It will display the url and will give you the idea why you are getting the error.

Hi Vilcek,

You need to paste the code in ‘Source Editor’ part of content editor webpart.

This is so cool but I have a problem. I keep getting warnings from IE and I have to click “Allow all Content to show” and then the page refreshes and when it comes back I have two like buttons. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Hi Debprotim,
I don’t get it what you mean by the source editer. Could explain more clearer? Or give an example of codes? Thank you very much:)
