Facebook comments & Kunena

Facebook comments & Kunena

Before purchasing, we need to know whether FB Comments will work in Kunena. Kunena support everywhere on your site specifically mentions support for profile import, but not the social widgets. I searched the forum and found that people got tags entered in Kunena to display "Like" and other widgets, but it wasn't clear to me if these had to be added manually into each post by the user. Can they be automatically added to the forum so that users can post their replies/comments to their FB wall.

Also, does this use the FB API that will cross-post? Meaning, if User1 replies to a Kunena forum post on our site and posts this comment to their FB wall, then User2 replies to comment on FB Wall, will User2 post from FB automatically also post in Kunena forum? This is my understanding of Facebook Comments API under their latest update. Is this how it will work with your extension also?
Thanks for your help!

Re: Facebook comments & Kunena

The primary integration of JFBConnect with Kunena is the profile import which gets a user's name, profile information, and avatar into Kunena in just a few clicks and without any forms. It's a simple matter to add the Comment (or Like) button to every post in Kunena by using either the JFBCComments (or JFBCLike) module and assigning them to your Kunena menu item. We also support 'tags' that you can put in your template, like:
{JFBCLike} and {JFBCComments}

However, what I think what you're asking is a little different than just adding a comment box. I think you want to post to a user's wall when the create a new topic or response within Kunena. Currently, this isn't available, but in a future release, we're planning to add a simple javascript line you could add to any Submit (or Reply) button that would pop-up a window to also post into the user's wall.

No, JFBConnect does not do any sort of cross-posting. The Facebook Comments box is threaded, but we don't insert those comments into other extensions, they are only displayed in the Comments module.

Hope this all makes sense and helps!

Re: Facebook comments & Kunena

Thanks, Alex.
What I was trying to ask is whether your FB Comments is using the new FB API with the Comments threaded and synced between website (in this case forum) and FB Wall where users post their Comments. That's all I meant by cross-posting. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. I wasn't sure the first time I read your reply, but upon re-reading it some time later I realize that's what you mean by "Comments box is threaded."

All we need at this point is to have the Comments using the new API, so this will meet our needs. The pop-up javascript will just be a nice bonus whenever that's available ;-)

Re: Facebook comments & Kunena

Ah.. sorry for the lengthy explanation then. We try to make sure the right expectations are met, so never try to beat around the bush on what we do.

As to your question, yes, our comments module uses the 'new' comment code. We actually have the ability to use the old xid parameter, in case you have some pages with comments you wanted to preserve, but by default all new comment boxes automatically use the href from the URL of the page they're shown on. You can hard-code this URL to specific pages (to show the same comment box across multiple pages) and our JFBCContent plugin will automatically set the proper canonical URL when Likes or Comments are shown in articles. That way, if the article is in a blog view, the Like buttons will all be for each article shown, not for the blog-view page itself.

Hope that makes sense, and should you need anything else, just let us know!
