Using Adthis with google sites

lydrod Feb 19, 2012 @ 12:10AM EST
Hi, I saw a post that for google sites you need to use the email newsletter option because Google does not all JavaScript our empty <a> tags. When I use the code for newsletters, it works great, up until you actually try to share. When I click on the facebook or twitte share buttons the default google sites url instead of my website url:

Google Sites - Free websites and wikis login...

How do I get it to show my website url?

The email newsletter option lets you select a URL to share. What URL did you enter there?

I think I figured it out. I originally had I since added an extra slash to the end of it to read and it worked! Facebook is not pulling my site information correctly. :) See below bad version:

<DIV>&nbsp; <A href=";;pubid=ra-4f39d83c465ab280" target=_blank><IMG border=0 alt=Facebook src=""></A> <A href=";url=;pubid=ra-4f39d83c465ab280" target=_blank><IMG border=0 alt=Twitter src=""></A> <A href=";=250&amp;pubid=ra-4f39d83c465ab280&amp;url=" target=_blank><IMG border=0 alt=More... src=""></A> </DIV>
