The Facebook Like and Share enables users to make connections to your pages and share content back to their friends on Facebook.
Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the button can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. For logged-in Facebook users, the button is personalized to highlight friends who have also liked the page.
With Facebook Social Button actions your pages show up in more places on Facebook and you gain the ability to publish stream stories to connected users.
Using the plugin settings in backend you can exclude the Sections, Categories or individual Content Items/Articles.
- If your site uses UFT8 Unicode special characters (like mine which needs european characters) it breaks the titles that are parsed to facebook! (show stopper for me)
- Unlike many other "Like Button" implementations, this one does not pass the "Like" stream to facebbook.
- The "Like" counter is incorrect. For me it shows "... and (many thousands) like this" even though there is one one like.
- I had to uninstall the plugin as it was corrupting all titles parsed to facebook, even for those from which I used direct copy and paste from URL from any page, that have UTF special characters such as ç, ã, õ, á etc.
Seems you did not look into Advanced Parameters of plugin where it will let you further configure the settings to enable it with other language characters. We have many clients using it with UTF special characters and even with Hebrew and Arabic titles. Please look in help forums and post there for help. We provide help and will answer any questions you may have.
Level of customization i don't know because i have used default settings and it works like a charm.
Level of support is supreme. I had a problem with VM flypages and got a response in no-time.
Overall, a great value for its money.
Had an issue with the plugin in XFBML mode and Khawaib helped me sort it out, personally logging into my website, checking the code and fixing the problem (which was a conflict with FB insight).
Very good product, even better customer support.. Two thumbs way up!
It took 2 me an hour to get configured as I need. You can find information very helpful in the project forum to make it work.
I sent an email to the owner and he answered to me very fast. Thanks Khawaib Ahmed. :)
The developer offered excellent customer support, working with me to get the plugin working just right for my sites. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to utilize the power of Facebook throughout their sites!
But don't be surprised if it does not work.
There are 20 people here that say it is great
but there are 20 more in the forum that say
it does not work.
You decide and take the risk.
The developer is responding to problems but not
all problems find a solution.
Another thing to take into account is the great customer support Khawaib is giving. He even offered to rewrite the plugin so it would be displayed in other components that I'm using (Eventlist). Keep the great work, man!
Support for this product gets 5 stars alone! Dev is on top of the forum if you run into any problems.
Can not wait for future versions and features!
