pre-purchase questons

pre-purchase questons

Hi Alex
I'm looking for some facebook features in my site and would like to know if your product is able to do the following:
- layout and colors customization of like/fan boxes (only possible if they are implemented via xfbml);
- language code (locale) predefined for all the apps, even before the user registers/logs in;
- auto-publish of something to the user wall upon certain events (it already does that when logging in the site, but i would like it to happen upon other events like when purchasing something in Virtuemart or etc...)
- allowing the site facebook comments to be replicated in the company facebook page wall. Meaning: I have fb comments in every virtuemart product pages. When a user visits the site he sees the comments and can comment himself, having the comment posted to his own wall. What I want is that that same comment to be published in my facebook company page (fan page), either in the wall or in a tab.
- last, but not the least, being able to use the invite feature with user-defined link (I have an affiliate program and want to allow the affiliates to use the invite feature of FB with their link automagically placed in the invite, like what is done with alpha user points and openinviter)

thanks in advance and best regards
Alexandre

Re: pre-purchase questons

- layout and colors customization of like/fan boxes (only possible if they are implemented via xfbml)

All of the Facebook widgets we implement use the FBML code, so you can override (most) of their styles as you want or as much as Facebook will let you.  We currently do not include a separate CSS file for performing these overrides though, so you may need to do a little investigating in how to override some of the styles.

- language code (locale) predefined for all the apps, even before the user registers/logs in

The language for all of the widgets is based off of the default language of your Joomla installation.  This is automatically detected and used for all users.  Currently, there's no way to do user-specific languages (no real requests for it yet).  This language detection works for all users, regardless of their user level, log in status, or whether they've logged in via Facebook/JFBConnect or not.

- auto-publish of something to the user wall upon certain events (it already does that when logging in the site, but i would like it to happen upon other events like when purchasing something in Virtuemart or etc...)

We're currently working on some 'easy' tags or javascript calls that you can add to events to use a pop-up for users to push updates to their wall with a user configurable message.  If you want to do it silently, by modifying the checkout routine of Virtuemart, let's say, to post "Alex just purchased woodchips from www.mysite.com", here's instructions:

allowing the site facebook comments to be replicated in the company facebook page wall. Meaning: I have fb comments in every virtuemart product pages. When a user visits the site he sees the comments and can comment himself, having the comment posted to his own wall. What I want is that that same comment to be published in my facebook company page (fan page), either in the wall or in a tab.

I believe this is possible, but can't guarantee it.  Each Comments module has a unique id to identify what page (or pages) the comments are related too.  If your fan page has a tab for your application, you should be able to put the comments on that application tab with the same comment id and users will be able to see those comments.  The comment id for JFBConnect can either be automatically generated by our app, or you can specifically set it to whatever you want.

last, but not the least, being able to use the invite feature with user-defined link (I have an affiliate program and want to allow the affiliates to use the invite feature of FB with their link automagically placed in the invite, like what is done with alpha user points and openinviter)

This isn't currently a configuration option, but if you know the PHP code to get a user's affiliate link, this would be very easy to tack onto the invite URL.  We'd gladly show you how/where to do it.

Whew.  Hope all this info helps.  If you have more questions, or when you purchase, if you need support, you know where to find us! current/smile
