Share Me Compact Pro already installed, problem?

Share Me Compact Pro already installed, problem?

Hello, I already have Share Me Compact Pro installed on my website which allows my users to "like" articles which then appear on the facebook feed. I recently installed Kunena and thought your component would be a neat addition.

So i guess my question before I purchase it, are there any implications for Share Me Compact Pro already on the site? Sometimes when two components do something similar there is conflict. Also, can I do the same thing with your component? ie Users can "Like" articles? Lastly if it does so happen there is a conflict and I had to disable Share Me Compact plugin for example... would i lose all the stats (like 12 of your friends like this article, for example)

Lots of questions, hope you can help.

Thanks

Re: Share Me Compact Pro already installed, problem?

Thanks for subscribing.. hopefully you're issues above haven't cropped up, but I'll answer what I can here.

First off, we haven't used the Share Me Compact Pro, so I don't know which Facebook library they're using along with possible incompatibilities. We use the 'new' one, so if they do as well, even if there are minor issues, we should be able to help you overcome them. Just let us know. However, we have a Like module in JFBConnect as well as 'tags' which you can add to any article individually or to your template to add them to your whole site. By simplying typing { JFBCLike}, a like button will appear. There are other configuration options you can use in the tag for showing faces and such, but that's how easy it is to do.

As for your stats, you can definitely keep them, but it may take some effort. Basically, for each Like button, you (or your extension really) has to tell Facebook a unique ID for that button. If you use our modules, you'll just need to make sure you configure them to use the same ID, per page, that the Share me module was doing. Again, we can help you understand how to do this, but we don't do it automatically.

Best of luck, and thanks again!

Thanks. Actually, I've realised a bit of an issue. Now when I "like" on my site.. the feed on FB does not point to that particular page but rather it only points to the overall domain. Hope that makes sense.
