FB-Like Box cut

Hello,
if you click on the "FB like button" on top of the article, the following message box has a massive display error.
How can it be fixed?

Regards,
S.

Re: FB-Like Box cut

S.,
There's a few issues that can be causing that. First, Facebook is constantly making minor updates to how the Like, Share and other social features view and operate. Over time, those changes add up to big differences. JFBConnect is always improving our compatibility and trying to make things work as smoothly as possible with those updates. If you aren't on the latest release, the first thing I'd recommend is upgrading. The latest release is v5.2.2, which came out in December. The next major release (v6.0) is due out in just a few weeks.

Beyond that, we'd need to see the problem to help diagnose things. Could you please let us know the URL where you're having the issue so we can investigate further?

Thanks,
Alex

Re: FB-Like Box cut

sorry, I forgot the URL.

This is a typical article. We use J1.5.

Below the article is also the JBF comment box.
There is an workaround that it will be displayed with 100% width:

#fbcomments, .fb_iframe_widget, .fb_iframe_widget[style], .fb_iframe_widget iframe[style], #fbcomments iframe[style] {
width: 100% !important;}

If i don't use this CSS code, the like-box is working correctly. But than the comment box is cutted.

Re: FB-Like Box cut

You have two styles in your template that are causing this issue:

Code:

#fbcomments, .fb_iframe_widget, .fb_iframe_widget[style], .fb_iframe_widget iframe[style], #fbcomments iframe[style] {

width: 100% !important;
}

And

Code:

.fb_iframe_widget iframe {

width: 400px !important;
}

I'm not sure which specific stylesheets those two lines are in, but you'll need to remove both of them as they are causing the popup to be too small.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Re: FB-Like Box cut

The code we use in the latest release of JFBConnect is:

Code:

.fb-comments, .fb-comments >span, .fb-comments iframe[style] {

    width:100% !important;
}

.jfbclike iframe, .jfbcsend iframe {
    max-width:none !important;
}

However, that is for the latest release of JFBConnect on Joomla 2.5+. There are multiple other changes, but hopefully that gets you going!

Good luck,
Ale

Re: FB-Like Box cut

I changed the code. It does not work.
Now the Like Box is bigger. But not big enough.
The comment field now is smaller.

Re: FB-Like Box cut

I'm honestly not sure then. It seems like you removed the CSS from your page, so I can't see the results.

As mentioned, I provided the latest code that is working on the Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 releases. I'm not sure what's wrong with the Joomla 1.5 version as we haven't been actively developing that version anymore. It would take some investigation to determine what's wrong, and I don't know if it's a JFBConnect issue or a Joomla 1.5/template issue.

Sorry I can't be of more assistance to you.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: FB-Like Box cut

Hi Alex,
Please try a last check. I uploaded your code again.
It's online now for the hole day. Perhaps you'll find the error.

Regards,
S.

Re: FB-Like Box cut

Your page still has the following style:

Code:

.fb_iframe_widget iframe {

width: 400px !important;
}

Once you remove that, the comment box and Like box will grow to the correct size.. at least, from my testing they did. That CSS is embedded on your page (look at the HTML). You'll need to find out what's inserting that and remove it.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Re: FB-Like Box cut

yes. I got it!
It was a conflict with another FB-module.
I deleated the code in the other module and it seems to work now.
Thanks a lot guys! Great work!

Re: FB-Like Box cut

Glad to hear we could help you narrow things down and get you going, even if your subscription expired more than 6 months ago current/smile

We hope you'll plan to move to Joomla 2.5 or 3.x in the future and upgrade to our latest JFBConnect release as well. There's a lot of great features we've implemented since the version you're using, and a lot more planned over the next few months. Either way, best of luck to you and your site.

Finally, if you haven't already, please consider leaving a rating and review for JFBConnect, or our support, on the Joomla Extension Directory. It certainly isn't required, but is very appreciated:

Re: FB-Like Box cut

I left a rating and review for JFBConnect at Joomla Extension Directory.
But we will not upgrade to J2.5 or J3. Our system is working fine.
It is to complex to upgrade. Many modules and components are not available for J2.5 / 3 and stuff like that.
-> Never change a running system....

Re: FB-Like Box cut

Completely understand the hesitation in upgrading. It can definitely be a pain. We did it about a year ago. It certainly wasn't fun, but was necessary (for us). Joomla 1.5 is a solid system.. but there are no more security releases being planned for it, so please stay vigilant.

If you weren't aware of it, there's a patch for 1.5.26 to fix a major security issue:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla … m_id=31626
I'd highly recommend installing that if you haven't already.

Anyways, best of luck, and thank you very much for the review. We definitely appreciate it!

Thanks, and best of luck,
Alex
