Category: JFBConnect

Joomla 4 isn't anticipated to be fully released until late this year (I've heard Sept-Nov, but it's still too far out to have a definite timeline). Before then, Joomla 3.9 will be available which will have a compatibility layer so that an extension can work for both Joomla 3.9 and 4.0 at the same time. We fully plan to support Joomla 4 when it's available and have begun some testing with the alpha build. We do not anticipate a release of JFBConnect specifically for Joomla 4 for at least a few more months.

I hope that helps answer your question, but should you need anything else or have any other input, please let us know.

Thanks,
Alex

I'm unsure what you mean here. For any Joomla content page, you can enable the Open Graph - Content plugin that comes with JFBConnect. Once enabled, JFBConnect will automatically set the og:image tag on the page.

If you have a specific page where the og:image tag isn't being set right, you can set the following tag in the article which will force the og:image to whatever link you want:

Code:

{SCOpenGraph image=http://site.com/link-to-image.jpg}

I hope that helps, but if you need anything else, please let explain what you're trying to do further and we'll help however we can.

Thanks,
Alex

Changed ID
Category: JFBConnect

Dan,
The Like count is associated with a specific URL. If you changed the URL structure on your site, then the Like count will reset because the 'old' URLs would have the Likes, not the new ones. If that doesn't help, can you provide a link to a URL where the Like count reset to 0?

Adblockers can hide the social sharing features. The social sharing features are tracking behavior, which many privacy or adblocking add-ons will prevent from working. There's nothing we can do about that.

Thanks,
Alex

JFBConnect doesn't have that built in, but there are a few ways to accomplish what you're looking for:
* JFBConnect has a mini-registration mode, where the user authenticates on a social network but then is brought to the profile page of your site to fill out any missing information. Here, you can add the checkbox or gather other details from the user. This makes registration a little longer and not 'one click', but would do what you're looking for. This mode works with Joomla's normal user registration page, Community Builder, JomSocial and EasySocial.
* When creating a Facebook application, you can provide your terms of service there. On the popup prompt to login to Facebook, it will provide a link to the terms and by authenticating, you're approving Facebook's terms and your sites.

I hope that helps explain, but if you get JFBConnect and need any further assistance, just let us know!

Thanks,
Alex

I'm not sure how YooTheme's HTML elements work, so I really don't have a specific answer there. When you enter the EasyTag, it can't be altered by the editor. Some HTML editors will change characters or do other things to the tags before it actually save the tag. Then, when displayed on the page, JFBConnect can't detect the tag, so it looks like it's not working.

I hope that helps explain and glad you can see that it does work. Of course, if you continue to have issues or need anything else, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks,
Alex

Category: JFBConnect

No, the above isn't how the tags work:
SCOpenGraph tags will set the meta data for the page. Above, where you're using {SCOpenGraph description=...} that will set the *meta* description for Twitter and Facebook when the post is shared.. that's the description in the article preview. If you want separate text for the Twitter meta description, use {SCOpenGraph twitter:description=...}

The SCTwitterShare is for a specific Twitter share button. The text field in there will pre-populate a message for a user to Tweet. Once tweeted, the prepopulated (nad possibly edited) Tweet will go out with an article preview that will use the title, description and image *meta* fields set above. You could go steps further and even have multiple Twitter Share buttons with different text.. almost like a vote or something "Use this Tweet link to show you're support" with a pre-defined text=.. message to support something on the page and another to show negativity toward the content. Just an example, but it illustrates why the text for the Twitter Share button can be set *per button* whereas the meta description is set per-page.

It seems like you're confusing the meta tags (SCOpenGraph tags) and the sharing buttons. They can be used together, but they are separate entities in Facebook and Twitters minds.

I hope that helps clarify things a bit further,
Alex

Category: JFBConnect

I'm unsure what you're seeing, but it seems to work for me. I just posted a comment on articles2/news2/86-joomla-seo-low-performance

I'm attaching an image of me in a private browsing session, so I'm not logged into Facebook, but I can still see the comment:
https://www.sourcecoast.com/images/agorapro/attachments/64/mini_Clarenceljw-fb-comments.png

If you can see it, then it is working right. If you're posts don't show up, please check your Facebook privacy settings as there may be some option to hide your comments from all other users. You may also want to try from various Facebook accounts to see if there's some pattern to when it does and doesn't work.

Thanks,
Alex

I'm unsure what you mean by the last post. Did the new article with the same content work, or did it have the same issue? Whenever new content is created though, please do not try to share it until it's published and public or else Facebook will not be able to see the contents and will get a 404 error, just like an ordinary guest.

Thanks,
Alex

Editing "Sign in with facebook" in the jomsocial
Category: JFBConnect

That string is the one you should want to change. However, you may want to try looking in the Language Overrides area to ensure there isn't a separate override there. The Overides manager will also help you set an override easier and search for any other instances of the "Sign in with Facebook" text:
https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_O … _in_Joomla

I hope that helps get you going, but should you need anything else, please let me know.

Category: JFBConnect

I would also like to be able to get a module to pick up the tags on each page as well, so that I don't need to include the JFBCLike, SCTwitterShare and SCGooglePlusOne tags on each page.

Can you explain what you mean here further? JFBConnect has a JFBConnect - Content plugin which can automatically add share buttons to each Joomla article. We also have the JFBCSocialShare module which can be added as a module to a page to add the social buttons (it's what adds the buttons 'floating' to the bottom right of this page, but it can go in a fixed position as well).

Really the only thing that needs to be set on those is the Facebook ref= attribute and the Twitter text= attribute, otherwise the URL can be picked up from the OpenGraph tags.

What attributes are those and what is there purpose? If you can provide some documentation on what those tags are, we'll gladly investigate if there's something more we can be doing.

Thanks,
Alex

Understood. The GUI method would be much better and we'll take it under consideration when we're doing our next feature planning session.

As noted, the defaults area should help not have to set so many tags for each article, but I know that still doesn't make it simple. It's the best I can offer for now though if the Open Graph plugins and other more automated methods don't work for your needs.

Thanks,
Alex

You should be able to do the !important tag, but the best method to override styles from that file is to target the element better. So, instead of just targetting 'row', add a style for 'row login' to get the sub-element of login underneath the 'row' element.

If you can provide the style name that you're trying to override, that may help us understand better.

Thanks,
Alex

Share buttons load, but are very slow to appear
Category: JFBConnect

I just tested and the buttons appeared within about 1s of the page loading. For me, the first time I loaded the page, the page loaded, the buttons started appearing, then the support box 'dropped' down from the top of the page. By the time the support box passed the social buttons, they were already rendered. Subsequent reloads didn't have the support box 'drop', but that as a good way to judge their loading on the first attempt.

You're correct that the buttons load via Javascript. The social network Javascript also only runs after the page has been loaded, which means all <head> Javascript has been loaded and the full HTML is available. On your site, it looks like the load time is about 1.5s. That's not bad at all, but anything you can do to remove Javascript or CSS files or to compress/minify them will help. Tools like JCH Optimize are really good at this and usually play just fine with JFBConnect.

I hope that helps give you some ideas, but if you need anything else, please let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Errore after update to v7.2.4

Stefano,
Definitely strange and unexpected behavior. If you do have issues with the next update, please let us know and we'll gladly help investigate more as this isn't something we've heard of, but would like to get to the bottom of.

Category: JFBConnect

We agree a GUI method would be nice in the future. It's something we've discussed before internally, but haven't found the time to implement it (and you're one of the first to ask for it, which is a bit surprising too).

For now though, I'd really recommend going to the Social Meta configuration area of JFBConnect and using the "Defaults" box to add any tags you want on every page. So, that could look like:

Code:

article:author=911tap

twitter:creator=911tap

I *think* twitter defaults work in there like that, but please test. Any defaults you set apply to all pages of your site. Then, if you have Open Graph plugins enabled for a certain component, the plugin will override the defaults. Finally, if there are any {SCOpenGraph..} tags on the page, then those will override the plugins and defaults.. so you can set a broad set of defaults and only override them as necessary on a per page basis.

The type=article is automatically set by all pages, so you shouldn't need to set that as a default or in a tag unless you want it to be something else.

I hope that helps get you started with some ideas and minimizes hand-typing at least.

Thanks,
Alex

My Open Graph tags have stopped working.
Category: JFBConnect

Melissa just informed me that there were changes in this release to fix some issues with Open Graph tags in some cases where certain tags wouldn't have been picked up. So, hopefully it is fixed for good for you!

My Open Graph tags have stopped working.
Category: JFBConnect

I'm very glad to hear things are working for you now. I don't think the changes we put in this release should have fixed the problem you were having, but there's always some updates that could have had an effect.

If you run into anything else or need any further support, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Thanks,
Alex

Glad to hear we could help and that you got things going. Of course, if you need anything else, please let us know.

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

Errore after update to v7.2.4
Category: JFBConnect

After updating, you saw the 500 error one time? After that, it went away?

It sounds like there may have been an installation or caching error on your site. The old, original files from the earlier installation weren't overwritten properly or something like that. I'm glad that it sounds like things are working properly for you now.

If you do continue to have issues, please let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Errore after update to v7.2.4
Category: JFBConnect

Can you let us know what version of Joomla you're using? Also, when do you get that error. Is it when you authenticate, on every page of the site, on the front end and admin area, etc?

If you're getting a 500 error, that means the site can't load. We haven't heard from any other users regarding a 500 error, so I don't have much to go on here. If there was a specific error message on the page when that happened, that would help us investigate further. If you choose to upgrade again, you can also set the Error Reporting option in the Joomla Global Configuration area to "All", which may show a more detailed message of why the site won't load.

Finally, if you upgrade and get the error, if you can still access the admin area, please disable the JFBCSystem plugin. That will likely 'fix' the problem, but disable most of JFBConnect. At least that should help get you going though and we'd be able to investigate further from there.

That's awesome news. Thanks for letting us know things are back to working well!

Thanks for posting that link. It's definitely true that Joomla 3.8.4 introduced the e issue. We have a new release coming out today that is much more robust to future changes like made in Joomla 3.8.4 and, since we dug into things deeper, we fixed a few other language URL issues that we hadn't been able to fix in the past. So, our new release is still recommended, but upgrading to 3.8.5 should also get you going if you're experiencing the login issue.

Thanks for your patience and reports on the issues everyone, they really helped us narrow things down quickly!
