SIMPL IS GOING INTERNATIONAL!

In case you missed it in the description, we have now added the ability to change the language displayed in the front end to just about anything Facebook supports. And thanks to our wonderful community members in Germany, Simpl now features a German translation for the back-end.

If you're interested in having Simpl translated for your native language and would like to get involved, please contact me here: http://briancoale.com/contact/

NOTE: Updating in the Extension Manager for Joomla! 3 no longer supports versions 3.0, 3.1 or 3.2, but they will still work if you download them directly from the website.

The extension is completely non-commercial and no registration is required to download it. Enjoy!

Simpl 1.1.2 for Joomla! 3.3 has been


Love this extension and ease of use for a non-coder :-)

Thank you so much for providing this awesome module. It was just too easy, and looks great on my site. Very happy!


I have tested the top 3-4 most popular facebook like modules for my new joomla! 3 site and i can confess that this is the most simple, effective and, not to mention, free. Yet it has many options but without being complicated. It is also recommended for multilingual sites, since you can setup multiple instances of the same module with different language display options and configure each instance to appear in the selected language. This is very handy for my greek-russian-english site. Keep up the good work!


Easy, complete, wonderfull, and Free!!! Really great module


Works great right out of the box, this is the best fb like box i've ever used.



Thank you for this great work


NIce and simple

Nice and simple app to integrate Facebook and Joomla


Tried a few Facebook extensions over the years. This looks good, easy to use and responsive. Installed on Joomla 3.2.3. Only minor point is would be happy to pay a small fee to remove the link but it is not obtrusive.

Owner's reply: Hi Roy,

Thanks for the kind words! I hear you about the Facebook link on the bottom, but removing it would violate their Terms of Service. At the core of Simpl FB Module is the official Facebook social plugin code, so credit must be given it's due in this case to keep things on the up and up.

Thanks again!

Great module

This module has many options that many of the paid modules do not have. I highly recommend getting this module instead of any other, and perhaps spending the money you saved as a donation to the developer.


Simply fantastic!

I was looking for hours a module like this. This is really responsive, not like others that make you waste your time. And free!

Thanks :D


Great extension!

I couldn't show Facebook comment on my Joomla 2.5 website. I tried a lot of plugin and module, they actually show Facebook comment box but when I test comment and refresh the page all comment disappeared. With this module now I have propre Facebook comment.


Awesome!

Works great in J 3.2, it's really simple to configure and does what it's supposed to do. Kudos to the developer!!

The Simpl Facebook Comments Helper plugin allows you to moderate comments when using the comments box in the Simpl Facebook Module by adding special tags in the head of your website's pages. Although this was specifically designed for the Simpl Facebook Module, it can be used with other implementations of the Facebook Comments social plugin as well, making it a stand-alone solution for users of Facebook Comments in Joomla! who would like to be able to moderate comments.
