Not Supported Template Edits  

UPDATED: 7/4/10

What's new?
Facebook Comment Box


I recently added the new facebook "Like" button to my forum and I want to share with everyone!

Yes, this is IE,Firefox, Opera, Safari compatible.
Yes, this will also show a "comment" box when hover over.

First thing's first:

1. Go to http://www.facebook.com/developers/createapp.php (Facebook account required)

2. Enter your site name in the "Application Name" field... "agree" - "Create new app"

3. Click the Website tab

4: Enter your site URL in the "Connect URL" field.

i.e. http://www.DOMAIN.com/ (Don't forget the SLASH).

5. Enter DOMAIN.com in the "Base Domain" field and save.

6. In the next page you will see an "Application ID" number. (you'll need it later... keep the window open for now)

*This will place the Facebook Comment box below the last post, you may change the width to your liking.
*The comment box will only be shown to guests.

Now we need to place the "LIKE" button somewhere visible.

I use postbit_legacy so, this is what I did:

I love it and my members love it, but, is there a way of having the "like" button to each post as opposed to each thread as some of our threads are years old and 500 pages long.

So, you want your facebook profile (and the facebook profiles of your members) to possibly have thousands of entries under the 'Pages I like'? Each one powering a tiny bit of link juice back to an individual post?

Why?

Anyone else notice when they first open a thread, the box for the Like button opens big and then goes small?

I did the fix and everything, but still getting errors in IE. I have Addthis and the social bookmarks on the footer, so that will just have to do.

Uninstalling this one. I don't think the mod is bad, just Facebook having issues.

I followed all the instructions and nothing happened at all on my board. What am I missing?

Ran fine for a couple years until today. Seems facebook broke the fb.js script somehow, at least as far as all my users with IE are concerned.

Not sure about this plugin, but the facebook IE JavaScript has been broken for awhile, although it is not to hard to fix.

I remember reading last month where Facebook was updating their API starting the beginning of July (more migration additions). I am sure you can find the report in the developers section at facebook. At lest it helps to be aware of the upcoming changes in the API so your not caught off guard.
