Chatter Post from Visualforce page

Hello All, 

I am overriding standard Account layout with custom visual force page. I have used the following code for chatter in my code.

<apex:tab label="Chatter Feed" name="Chatter" id="Chatterfeed"><apex:outputPanel > 
      <chatter:feed entityId="{!$CurrentPage.parameters.Id}" /></apex:outputPanel>

I am facing an issue in chatter post and i am unable to post anything. i click the post link but nothing happens. Can you please help ?

Below sample code works.
<apex:page >
  <chatter:feed entityId="{!$User.Id}"/>

This will display the Chatter feed for the currently logged in user. The entityID here can be the ID of a standard object, custom object, user etc.
You can read more each of these components here. Obviously, you can write your own Apex controllers and do a lot of custom Chatter functionality as well. One such example is listed here.
Hope this helps you!

Please mark it as Best Answer if my reply was helpful. It will make it available for other as the proper solution.
Thanks and Regards

Hi Sandhya,

Thanks for your response. However, i am facing this issue on my Production but it works very well on Sandbox ? Do you know the reason ?

As per my knowledge see if permissions or sharing settings changed on the Account object or the related Visualforce page / Apex class.

Best Regards
