    Exclamation Posting a comment on the news feed [facebook api]

    Hey all i am using the following code to post to a posting on my news feed:
     require '../src/facebook.php';
     $facebook = new Facebook(array(
      'appId' => 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
      'secret' => 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
      'fileUpload' => true,
      'cookie' => true
      $user = $facebook->getUser();
      if ($user) {
      try {
       $access_token  = $facebook->getAccessToken();
      $user_profile  = $facebook->api('/me');
       $comment = $facebook->api('/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/comments',
        'access_token' => $access_token,
        'message' => 'testing!'
     } catch (FacebookApiException $e) {
      echo ($e);
      $user = null;
      <?php if ($user): ?>
       <a href="<?php echo $logoutUrl; ?>">Logout</a>
      <?php else: ?>
       <a href="<?php echo $loginUrl; ?>">Login with Facebook</a>
      <?php endif ?>
      if ($user) {
      $logoutUrl = $facebook->getLogoutUrl();
      } else {
      $statusUrl = $facebook->getLoginStatusUrl();
       $params = array(
       'scope' => 'read_stream, friends_likes, email, read_mailbox, read_requests, user_online_presence, friends_online_presence, manage_notifications, publish_actions, publish_stream, user_likes, user_photos, user_status, user_videos, read_insights'
      $loginUrl = $facebook->getLoginUrl($params);
      <?php print_r($user_profile); ?>
    For some reason i get this error:

    OAuthException: (#221) Photo not visible

    And i have no idea since i am posting a text comment and not even an image??

    If i comment out the code line

    /*$comment = $facebook->api('/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/comments',
        'access_token' => $access_token,
        'message' => 'testing!'
    it works just fine (as in, displays my info with user_profile). I've tried reading over the page that tells you how to use the comments https://developers.facebook.com/docs...ject/comments/and i do - it just doesn't seem to want to work?

    Using the graph API i was able to do the same thing i am trying to do via PHP so i know it works since it returns a json ID and when i refresh the page i see the "testing" comment...:

    And what makes it more odd is that, i can use the above code to comment on just a comment that doesnt have an image posted... But if i am commenting on a image that was posted then i get that error???!?!?!?

    I use this code to sussesfully post to a non-image post (as in, just someone posting text). Where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the post ID and yyyyyyyyyyyyyy is the users ID who posted the comment that i am posting my comment to.

    $comment = $facebook->api('/xxxxxxxxxxx_yyyyyyyyyyyyy/comments',
     'message' => 'testing!',
    What am i missing???
