    Joe in support provided this answer...

    To fix go to the Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Add New Plugin

    Product: vBulletin
    Hook: fb_like_button
    Title: Facebook Like Fix

    PHP Code:
    Code:
    if ($show['fb_likebutton'] AND (is_browser('ie') || is_browser('opera')))
    {
       $templater->register('href', get_fbcanonicalurl());
    }


    Set "Active" to YES and SAVE.

    The error should go away.

    This is because Facebook changed how the like button should work.
    The fix worked - and thought I would share so others can solve the issue.

  • Facebook Like Button Error - The href URL must be absolute

    Fresh install of 4.2.1 last week. Facebook like button was working fine. Today I'm getting an RED error and a popup that says "The href URL must be absolute"

    I noticed this was a problem in the past but was fixed in 4.2 and like I said - was working a day ago.

    Might Facebook's tinkering today have caused the implementation to fail again?

    Anyone else having the issue?
