Yes, they are the same thing,
coconut oil IS coconut butter,
I know this can be confuing, this is why
because coconut oil/butter becomes a liquid at 72 degrees, but is solid at 71 degrees so it is called both.
hope this helps.

I have one bottle of coconut oil in my cabinet that is solid. I just ordered a bottle from Alissa and it was warm when I got it so it was liquid. I put it into the same cabinet next to the other bottle and Alissa's hasn't gone solid. Do some need higher temps to go solid or did something happen to it after it got so warm from the UPS truck. I was hoping to make some chocolate with it but I think it will be a mess. Should I put it in the fridge?

It depends on how the coconut is processed, what kind it is etc. Some have different melting points. Nothing to worry about!
Really pure coconut oil will actually melt at the same temperature... it will go from solid to liquid very quickly and vice versa.
Coconut oil IS coconut butter (oil from the coconut); it's just called oil in climates that are warm (liquid), and butter in climates where it's cold (solid) There's a new type out that grinds up the whole coconut flesh (microfine), which some are getting confused with coconut butter (they may even call it coconut butter - someone here said they did).

Artisana makes a coconut butter(there are other brands out there too, Tree of Life makes one) that is made with the flesh of the coconut,so it is like a butter, it's thick and creamy and stays that way. I use it in my smoothies, awesome stuff!!
