Facebook Share Button Plugin

Replaces {fshare} tag in any content with Facebook Share Button Module. See example above-right. This plugin provides full URL of the article to the Facebook module, which effectively means that each of your article containing this tag will be shared on Facebook once the visitor clicks on it. Plugin parameters are configurable.

v1.0.1, v1.7.1: new parameter og:url meta tag can be switched off
v1.0.2, v1.7.2: Facebook Open Graph parameters are more strict, fix to handle this
v1.0.3, v1.7.3: method="upgrade" added to installation XML
v1.0.4, v1.7.4: MAJOR release, the component is updated to reflect Facebook policy change of the share button. Unfortunately site-specific AppID is required for share from now on!
v1.0.5, v1.7.5: There is still an older interface for FB share, which does not require AppID and can post to different walls. A new plugin option lets you decide which interface to use.
v1.0.6, v1.7.6: title bug fixed
v3.0.7: Joomla 3.0 version

Your reviews are very much appreciated, it helps me keep up my efforts. Thank you all!

The plug-in works as expected. It's look differs from the Facebook Like! plugin, but this can be changed with a few CSS lines.

Set the Share Title in the plugin parameters to whatever you want to be displayed on the button.

Most social modules and plugins out there just draw a series of icons one after another.
I needed to be able to choose where to place each button; this plugin (along with other from the same developer) helped me getting the result.
Well done!

My Joomla Site Got Down when i enabled this plugin. Later i removed the folder fshare from plugin/content and got my site up again. So not working for me..

That happens if you mistakenly install the wrong version of the plugin.

There are two versions, one version is for Joomla 1.5.x and the other is for later Joomla releases.
