Interesting. I just viewed the page in chrome and firefox and it appears to be working, perhaps there was something amiss temporarily with our server. If you wouldn't mind trying again, I would like to see if you still experience the problem:
Doogle Custom Landing Page
Good by me. So, I was able to tweak my fan page a bit more using the like box and the send button--you will need to like the page to view:
Doogle Fan Page
I am still searching for a better way to stream the way on this page if you can think of any other way or perhaps how it is implemented by others I would love to know some direction on how best to go forward.
I was curious what would be the best way to proceed with fine tuning the styling on some modules:
First, the JFBC fan module has a default stream content height of 300px set by the FB settings. However I do not know enough about php to add a css stylesheet to the settings of the default.php of the module. If was able to, I could set the .fan_box .page_stream class to be whatever height I would like in a stylesheet and have it linked to the module by way of php.
This also brings me to the default images for the like, send and basically any other graphic associated with facebook. I would like to have some control over those buttons, but once again it is a matter of php and adding stylesheets to be able to truly fine tune the look and feel of the buttons/graphics.
Check out the Coke share button for instance: facebook coke
I am not sure if this could be done, but to have the ability to link stylesheets to modules or add settings for which button to use or text to use for the button in the module settings--that would be terrific. I would think adding those bits of functionality would really help those design junkies with limited php knowledge out.
Thoughts? ~ Thanks
So, I have been looking around at some other fan pages and wanted to pick your brain to see how to accomplish somethings that I see. For instance, on some band pages--you will notice that the wall is available on an app landing page, also an option to view their twitter feed. Any direction on how to accomplish one or both?
I was thinking that perhaps one of the plugins from your extension could be used to render the wall feed on a joomla page and simply canvas that into the facebook page. I dunno.
I will visit the JED for sure. I used to use this product when it first came in conjunction with JomSocial--both were in their early stages of development back then. I am glad to see how you have continued to provide excellent support and how you have actively developed your product. You have a great thing going here. Glad I came back.
As for the showcase sites, you could simply make a category in the forum for site showcases and if you really wanted to have sub categories for types of showcases--K2, JomSocial, Community Builder, Canvas Pages, etc.
I find it helpful as a guy who really enjoys designing to look at what others are doing as a source of inspiration and guidance.
Thanks for the kind words too.
Thanks Alexander. That makes sense. I think it really was a learning experience for me. I basically took a template and stripped it down to nothing for my tab page. Then I loaded in the images I needed and a form and linked from there. It worked out great! If you would like to see the finished page, take a look here:
You will see the reveal page--like it, then you should be directed to the canvas tab page.
I am quite proud.
Do you have a showcase for those who have made canvas pages? I would love to see what other people do.
So, ok--update. I had to go into the com_content folder to change some text. I use a YooTheme template and I build all my pages with Zoo (com_zoo) from YooTheme as well. I am not sure if that played into why the text "Articles" was being displayed in the reveal page or if there is something that needs to be changed on your end.
Anyways, this is the file I changed:
on line 172 I removed the text info to look like:
That got rid of the pesky "Articles" that was showing up. After that, I decided to give up on getting the reveal page to display css from my template, so the page I settled on is based off of images in divs. It suits our purpose just fine. I am glad it worked out in the end.
If you have any advice on how to get CSS from a linked template to render in the reveal page that would be helpful.
First, great product. I love having the ability to have this conversation with someone who has created a viable Joomla Facebook connect solution.
Where I am at right now:
I created an app, configured it correctly--now I am creating a reveal page.
I have the reveal page here:

When you go to our Facebook page, you have to select the app to see the reveal page:
Also, the reveal page on Facebook looks very different. Is this because I need to only use classes from the template I linked to? Also it says 'Article' at the top--that must be something I missed.
I am really interested in this product and demo'd it successfully a few days ago and I came back today to buy it, only to find the demo site down. I just wanted to let you know that I want the product, but I want to be confident it works on a live site.
