- Displays a Link back
The Fan Box lets users:
- See how many users are already fans/like
- Read recent posts from the Page
- Let visitors become a fan with 1-click
What You Need:
Before you add a Like Box to your website, you need the following:
- A Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5 website,
- Ability to install modules
- A Facebook Page that promotes your website
Thanks for taking the time to use and feedback.
Facebook does not allow the comments from friends to show in Like Box. There are other extensions that offer that kind of functionality. Check out these extension at our website:
I did create the facebook application and the module didn't work. After a while, I just gave up and installed another extension that did the same in seconds with no need to API
Sorry that you found the setup difficult.
We have made updates and now setup is very easy, all you need is you Facebook page to paste in settings and thats all.
documentation updates here:
to be honest: i am absolutly overwhelmed and totally convinced! This is one of the most intriguing extension i ever saw in my whole live! I have had tons of stuff (whistle and bells) in my past ten years of PHP-Nuke, PostNuke usage. I have seen tons over tons of extensions and zillions of things that extend the usage of a content management-system. But this is one of the most intriguing and most amazing thing i ever saw in my live! I love it! One Question though. Can i install it witout any App-Key. (Note the zootemplate.com - fanbox does not need this.) Your work rocks!! Keep it up! It is much more than excelent it is HOT! Joolin -
sorry that you had problems, I don't see any post in our forum related to this issue. please post in our forum and we will have a look and help you to resolve any issues.
Quick install. Took me about 20 minutes to get my API and page id and setup where I wanted it on the page in my site. I was using the free version, but I am now going to get the paid version and the Twitter module, too.
It does what it says and it looks great. I do recommend this to others wanting to insert the Facebook Fanbox on their Joomla 1.5.x sites.
Thanks to other reviewers who posted hints on what to do and the link to get there.
Keep up the good work!
to get the API key you need to set up YOUR OWN developer key in facebook at this link. http://www.facebook.com/developers/apps.php
you click on set up new application and after you enter the app name (choose anything) it will generate the key.
To get the page ID number just go to the page you want to link it to and take the last string of digits from the url in the address bar.
highly recommend this app and a good webpage by developer
All my settings are setup and still nothing I hope whatever it is the dev can fix. For now.. i can only hope.
sorry you had problem, please try latest update as we have made changes and made new interface easy to use.
thats why this plugin doesn't function anymore
Facebook have now changed the Become a Fan button to Like button and few other things in the API. This extension still functions exactly the way it looks in demo.
