Add New Facebook "Like" Button and Social Plugins (and OpenGraph to Headinclude)

Developer Last Online: Sep 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 25
Released: 15 May 2010 Last Update: 17 May 2010 Downloads: 201
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template External Content  

This modification will add OpenGraph tags to all pages, adding your Content pages to the Open Graph, along with the Facebook 'Like Button' under the navbar for all 'Content' pages.

What does this mean? If you have a Facebook Profile you may have noticed the new layout, where things that you 'like' are arranged by 'type'. Adding OpenGraph tags ensures you will have your pages properly classified and included.

From The Open Graph Protocol :
The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is used on Facebook to enable any web page to have the same functionality as a Facebook Page.
Basic metadata
To turn your web pages into graph objects, you need to add basic metadata to your page. We've based the initial version of the protocol on RDFa which means that you'll place additional <meta> tags in the <head> of your web page. The four required properties for every page are:

og:title - The title of your object as it should appear within the graph, e.g., "The Rock".
og:type - The type of your object, e.g., "movie". Depending on the type you specify, other properties may also be required.
og:image - An image URL which should represent your object within the graph.
og:url - The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph, e.g., "http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117500/".
Install Instructions:
AdminCP - Plugins & Products - Manage Products - [Add/Import Product] , browse to the location of the .xml file you downloaded from this thread, Import it.
Template Modifications
In whichever Templates you wish to have all Features (OpenGraph), you need to add the xmlns to the head.

ie:, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

(If there is a way to do this with plugins that wont cause major issues, someone tell me so I can make it happen that way. )

Titles
These should be part of the meta tag template that gets plugged in, but figuring out how to pass these variables is lower priority to getting this modification stable, so you need to add them in the templates.

ie: in SHOWTHREAD, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add under:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in FORUMDISPLAY, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add under:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in MEMBERINFO, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add under:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To add the Like Button, in navbar, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

add under:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

For sites running any form of Facebook Connect - You must use iFrame

Due to the new SDK not yet having Connect, and the 2 flavours of FB not mixing with each other, if you want to use Connect, you have to forgo the extra features of the SDK version that this modification ships with. 0.7 now has logic to show either or, depending on whether you have vB's native FB Connect turned on.

If you don't want to upload to v0.7+ (or are using YAFB or another Connect), replace the content of fbog_like_showthread with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Configuration Instructions
AdminCP - Settings - Options - Opengraph/Facebook Integration
Global On/Off - Set to Yes to turn the system on.
FB - Page Admins - A comma-separated list of the Facebook IDs of the Admins of your pages on Facebook.
FB - API Key - The API Key of your Facebook Application.
OG - Site Name - A short, human-readable name for your site that will appear in the Like on the User's Facebook Activity Stream.

It is important to fill in these, as they are used by FB to fill in some of the information, and allows your pages to be referenced in the Open Graph.

New in Latest Version
Activity Stream -
The Activity Feed plugin displays the most interesting recent activity taking place on your site. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. The activity feed displays stories both when users like content on your site and when users share content from your site back to Facebook. If a user is logged into Facebook, the plugin will be personalized to highlight content from their friends. If the user is logged out, the activity feed will show recommendations from your site, and give the user the option to log in to Facebook.

The plugin is filled with activity from the user's friends. If there isn't enough friend activity to fill the plugin, it is backfilled with recommendations. If you set the recommendations param to true, the plugin is split in half, showing friends activity in the top half, and recommendations in the bottom half. If there is not enough friends activity to fill half of the plugin, it will include more recommendations.
Recommendations Box -
The Recommendations plugin shows personalized recommendations to your users. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized recommendations whether or not the user has logged into your site. To generate the recommendations, the plugin considers all the social interactions with URLs from your site. For a logged in Facebook user, the plugin will give preference to and highlight objects her friends have interacted with.

You specify a site for which to show recommendations for. The domain is matched exactly, so a plugin with site=facebook.com would not include URLs from developers.facebook.com. You cannot currently aggregate across multiple domains.
Both of these options have an on/off toggle in the main FB/OG Options, and are currently manual template placements in postbit or postbit legacy.

Replace with:

Heh, you'll probably figure it out soon. I was surprised to find that the current rendition of Connect doesn't play nicely with the Javascript SDK that makes the full-featured Like button.

Yes indeed. In the conditional that surrounds it in the navbar template, take out everything and change it to:

They are all over the place here, on almost every thread in my 'New Posts' search, and the rather inappropriate ones over at .com.

Hopefully he'll have his signature removed/have all his posts deleted/be banned soon.

That is weird.. the only thing that should be slow is the Like Button itself, it shouldn't cause the rest of the page to hang.

If you take out this bit and place it manually somewhere in headinclude, does it make a difference?

Phew!

That code really should be placed immediately after <body> to help it load in synch with the rest of the page, but where it is, shouldn't do any harm.
