I'm having trouble getting this to work. What settings should we be using when getting the code from developers.facebook.com?

Thanks

Nothing specific of which I'm aware. Make sure the parent element is setup with a width.

@graphicalforce

So I'm using this in a wordpress text widget. What should I wrap the facebook code in? Does it need an id or class? Just not quite sure I understand how to use it.

@Chaser324

Thanks, duder. This is a very clean and simple solution to a problem that a lot of people tend to resort to unnecessary javascript to circumvent.

@questulent

Thanks so much for this - a real timesaver :)

@pixelnourish

Just found this - works perfectly. Thank you very much :)

@mikfrench

Hi there,

I'm using this and it's working great on every browser I've tested. The only time I'm having a problem is when I switch to an iPad. any idea what might be causing the problem on an iPad? The page in question is http://www.prwebster.com/nsfarms/why/

Thanks so much.

@prodsea

I am having trouble in setting up facebook like box for my mobile, camera, laptop price comparison website http://www.prodsea.com ... can anybody please help me on this

@marcosanchez

Hi, I have the same situation as mikfrench. I tried the gist on this site: http://www.edutec2013.ac.cr and works on most browsers. Works fine on: Galaxy S3 with Chrome, Firefox and default browser; Nexus 7 with Chrome and Firefox. On iPad mini and iPad 2 Safari and Chrome, the Facebook like box resizes bigger when finishes loading. And in Opera Mini on iPad 2 it is bigger, but is cuted. I hope this information could help someone.

@diogoca

tnks for tip...

@responsive-cms

Perfect! Thx so much for this! :-)
Now the fb-like-box seems to be 100% fluid / responsive. Will test it on several devices.

@jack-fu

To mikfrench and marcosanchez I'm having the same problem with Ipod, where FB renders bigger but only in portrait mode. In landscape mode it's 100%. Could it be that it's seeing the landscape mode (480px) as the width of the browser and rendering it that way even in portrait mode? When I put an "@media (max-width: 480px)" CSS style, I can control it on Ipod and have it rendered smaller. But still can't render it 100% on both landscape and portrait. Hope that helps, if anyone has a solution, please let me know. Thanks.

@bloqhead

Works like a charm for me but I haven't tested on iDevices yet. Thanks for this. I wish Facebook would make something that works out-of-box for responsive needs.

@mfarinelli

mikfrench, marcosanchez and jack-fu, did you guys find a solution for that on Ipad? I'm facing the same issue right now.

@eomonteiro

.fb-comments{width: 100% !important;}
.fb-comments iframe[style]{width: 100% !important;}
.fb-like-box{ min-width:280px;width: 100% !important;}
.fb-like-box iframe[style]{min-width:280px;width: 100% !important;}
.fb-comments span{width: 100% !important;}
.fb-comments iframe span[style]{width: 100% !important;}
.fb-like-box span{min-width:280px;width: 100% !important;}
.fb-like-box iframe span[style]{min-width:280px;width: 100% !important;}
.-cx-PRIVATE-pluginBoxContainer__border{ border:none}

work for me

@BKPremier

I used {width: 100% !important;overflow: hidden;} to make the iframe render to the parent size. However, when I decrease the viewport size on my laptop browser, the content/feed does a text-wrap with the width and drops to the next line. However, when viewing on my iphone, the text is cut off. Any idea on what could be an issue? Also, this has been working fine for me for the past month, and just yesterday I started getting an overflow error with the Like Box. Did Facebook change something within their plugins?

@ITPrism

I think, you should replace ".fb_iframe_widget" with ".fb-like-box" because there is a conflict with Facebook Like button. The button disappears! ;)

.fb-like-box, .fb-like-box span, .fb-like-box span iframe[style] {
width: 100% !important;
}

@timrobinson81

That worked PERFECTLY!

@grizzlylab

Thank you. It is working fine in my Twitter Boostrap project.

@netromnessumsar

It works great in it self. I just seam to fight with the profile image inside the streams They really squeeze the text of the streams so the flexible width gets challenged in medium sized devices.

Do any one know if it would be possible to leave out the profile image in the stream?

@jannejava

Did anyone find a solution that works for iPads (Safari / Chrome)?

@dt10111

Blerg, struggling with the same iPad issue. Fix is otherwise superb, would love to hear any recommendations for fixing iPad.

@relish27

Also having the same iPad issue... same thing happens on my Samsung Galaxy (android).

@jamesxv7

For the iPad issue, since the properties you want to modify are inside the iframe, there is no way to achieve a fully reponsive fix because the CSS does not work cross domain.

@SkyLavi

Many thanks!

@afroewis

Thank you, works perfectly

@Tezting

They have now added:

id="feedback_xxxxxx" style="width: 470px;"

In the iFrame, so this solution is not enough anymore...

@Morpho

Does not work anymore, just noticed the same :/
Should we open a new bug report on Facebook?

@Morpho

Please subscribe here everybody who is affected: https://developers.facebook.com/x/bugs/256568534516879/

thank!

@gordonbanderson

I've just resolved a similar issue using the CSS from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24712583/make-a-facebook-like-box-responsive - however full width page responsive still leaves half the page blank on a 1600px wide monitor :(

@kennyjamell

Thanks a lot!! it works perfectly for me!

@hoangthien0291

Thanks, copy -> paste in css file and done...

@Nashu99
