Jumping in here to suggest that instead of creating an Open Graph object of type "Joomla Content - Category", you should try one of "Joomla Content - Article". Then in that article type object, select the category to be Software and other settings like you've done above. Looking through the code is looks like JFBConnect supports autoposting for articles, not categories.

I think it should be as simple as switching to the other object type to get the object to show up in the channel area, but let us know if that doesn't help.

Ability for Custom Arrangement of Social Buttons

We have options for those!

It would be super fantastic to arrange some of the Social Buttons in the larger icon and others in the smaller, split-level as above - How to do that???

Check out the SCLogin module parameters in the "Social Button Settings" tab to use the 'Social Login Buttons' option.
* If you choose the JFBConnect option, the SCLogin module will use the default icons you've set for each social network in each of the tabs in the JFBConnect > Configuration > area.
* If you don't want to change the buttons for all of JFBConnect and SCLogin, you can also choose the "Custom" value. Then set the sizes with the "Image Style" option. This is what we've done on sourcecoast.com and just mix and matched which sizes of the login buttons we wanted. After setting the order with the below "Providers" option, we then used a little CSS styling to get the small buttons on the second line I believe... current/smile

If you want more details for this piece, check out documentation here

I also don't see any method to arrange the buttons in a non-alphabetical order as it also appears in the above module?

This should be accomplished with the "Providers" option. We liked putting the more widely-used networks first, so we've taken advantage of setting the order too.

Here's a screenshot of our SCLogin settings so you get a picture of what I mean.

Social Network Profile Import Configuration for EasySocial
Category: JFBConnect

Facebook has changed over time how they've supported the location fields, so I'm not surprised if there's confusion. It sounds as if you have wrapped your head around this, so let us know if you need any more help with mapping the profile import data correctly.


I'm not so sure you'll have to set the return parameter in the link URL. Have you tried setting the 'Returning User Redirection' and 'New User Redirection' settings in the JFBConnect > Configuration > General area? If you set them to 'Same Page', when logging in with social credentials, you should be redirected after that intermediate login page to the link that was clicked on. Also, if I'm correct in assuming these links are registered links, then if you log in with Joomla credentials, the same behavior should occur. If the redirection links are set to a specific page, that might be why you're not going to the expected link.


First, after you see that message in the Channels area, please make sure you save the channel in the backend before attempting to login on the front-end. Sometimes this step is missed and JFBConnect wouldn't know to prompt for that scope.

A couple of questions:
- Is the user that you're trying to add as the Channel Owner an administrator of your Facebook Page?
- Is your app in development mode?
- If your app is live, have you gone through the App Review process for manage_pages yet?

Let us know the above and we'll go from there to narrow down the cause.

Social Network Profile Import Configuration for EasySocial
Category: JFBConnect

My guess is that the type of field for your 'Current Location' is not one of the ones that we currently support. Fields of the following EasySocial types are able to be imported into the 'Social Profiles - EasySocial' section: birthday, datetime, email, gender, textarea, textbox and url.

Could you try creating a new textbox field for Location or changing the existing Location field to that type to see if it shows up in the available list and imports? If it already is one of these types and still not showing up in the list, please let me know.

Some questions about the button style

What you're asking for can be done with either CSS or a template override. We'd suggest creating your own SCLogin theme, as described here, to put any style changes in.

a. Set the background color of the button


.sourcecoast a.btn.btn-primary {

background: #cc0000;

b. Create a template override for mod_sclogin/tmpl/login.php. Around line 28, change the following line:


echo '<div class="sourcecoast sclogin-modal-links sclogin"><a ' . $loginClass . ' href="#login-modal" role="button" data-toggle="' . $modalName . '">' . JText::_('MOD_SCLOGIN_LOGIN') . '</a>';



echo '<div class="sourcecoast sclogin-modal-links sclogin"><a ' . $loginClass . ' href="#login-modal" role="button" data-toggle="' . $modalName . '"><img src="YOUR_LINK_HERE.png"></a>';



.sclogin {

text-align: right;



.sourcecoast.modal {

left: 80%;


No problem. Glad it was an easy fix! current/smile

There's a conflict with your styles/template. If I inspect the username and password elements on the modal, the font-size is set to 0px. If I use developer tools to set a size of 14px for example, you can see the fields being typed in.

There are two extensions on your page that are inserting the Facebook Javascript library on your page. This will cause unpredictable behavior for Facebook functionality such as likes/shares/login/etc.

Looking at the source on your page, the two includes of sdk.js are done by JFBConnect and it looks like rstbox. You'll have to remove the javascipt include from the rstbox popup.

Take a look at our Common Support Questions for "I ran the Autotune Error Check and am getting the following error" The first description for "Test: Facebook Javascript library inclusion Fail: Another Facebook extension is installed, including the Facebook Javascript library, and may conflict. " will provide more description.


I was just able to reproduce the Trouble Loading screen on my phone for the chat on sourcecoast.com, whereas it works properly on Alex's phone. Very strange...

I haven't seen any obvious bugs on the FB developer bug list regarding this behavior, so I'm unsure whether it's something in the Page settings, the widget setup or some underlying bug with the fb-customerchat plugin. We'll have to investigate this further to see what's going on.

CURL missing in PHP
Category: JFBConnect

Copying Alex's response to your Contact Us here:

cURL is required for JFBConnect. I'm not aware of PHP removing cURL from php 7.3.7 and I do not think that's true. If you're upgraded PHP, you may need to ensure that cURL was included in the upgrade.

I hope that helps, but there's not so much we can do about this requirement as cURL is how we make connections to the social networks for authentication, fetching settings and many other features in JFBConnect.

Looks like Alex worked with you to resolve these issues through Facebook Messenger. If you encounter any more problems, please let us know.


Are you still seeing this behavior? If I click into any of the articles at that link, the like count looks to increment/decrement correctly when I like then unlike the page.

the "Easy Tags" are just showing the text output instead of the sharing tags
Category: JFBConnect

The most common cause for this is that the key parameter is not set in the easy-tag. Double check the JFBConnect backend > Social > Misc > Social Tag Admin Key' setting to see if you've set a value there. If so, add the "key=YOUR_KEY_HERE" to the easy-tag. If not, please let us know.

Regarding the Facebook Live video, we do have a widget to do this already. If you use SCSocialWidget and select Facebook > Embedded Video, you should be able to configure the href parameter to point at the absolute URL of the video. Similarly, you can use our SCFacebookEmbeddedVideos easy-tag to insert it into your content manually. If you've tried these options already and are still having problems, please let us know.


I'm not sure if this is related or not - when I attempt to authenticate with Google on your site, the URL that's coming back to has an extra openid scope. This is strange because JFBConnect no longer requests this scope.

* Have you updated your Google Application to use the Google People API?
* Could you go into your JFBConnect backend > Configuration > Google area and Apply Changes?
* Do you have any SEF extensions that might have cached an old URL?

Let us know the above and if nothing rings a bell, send us a private message with admin credentials and we can investigate further.

I want to know how can I replace an article like button by a page like button.
Category: JFBConnect

The Content plugin will choose the URL of the current page (and there's no parameter to override that).

If you want to set the Like button url to the Facebook page, you'll have to use our SCSocialWidget module or the JFBCLike easy-tag. With those if you set the URL to your FB page (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/SourceCoast/), clicking Like will allow the user to like the Page itself, not the URL on your local site. The user will just be prompted to make sure they want to Like your FB page when the button is pressed.

You can test out the behavior with the FB Like Button generator at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/pl … ke-button/ to make sure it's what you want before switching to use the SCSocialWidget/Easy-tag solution.


Looking at your page now, it looks as though the styles are loaded when you click on the Log In button on the top right. Are you still experiencing the problem or have you resolved it already?

The statistics of what is hte most popular Social Media venues has changed since SourceCoast...
Category: JFBConnect

We definitely have some of these on our radar. To give you a quick rundown of our plans...

* Continue support for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter
* Investigate/add OAuth authentication for SnapChat, Pinterest and WeChat
* Add Social Channel functionality for Instagram

No/Needs more Investigation:
* WhatsApp- From our brief investigation, it does not seem as if WhatsApp has OAuth authentication. There's a Business API, but that seems too limited to integrate into JFBConnect unless there's user demand.
* Tumblr - There hasn't been any user demand for Tumblr, so we have not looked into this at all.
* Facebook Messenger - needs more investigation

Obviously, as we investigate more, our plans may change, grow, etc.

would like to use different images
Category: JFBConnect

The login buttons are the only ones that you can provide an image currently. We use each social network's javascript libraries to render the social sharing buttons.

Generally, each social network provide options to size/style the buttons buttons. You'd be able to pick the right size, possibly width etc. Depending on how you're displaying the buttons using JFBConnect, you'll find these parameters in either the SCSocialWidget module, EasyTag or Content Plugin.

Missing part in documentation
Category: JFBConnect

22. Click the "App Review" section. Click the Yes/No button to turn your application live.

It looks like the setting was moved to the top of the dashboard, as seen in the following screenshot. I'll update the application setup guide appropriately.


Result JFBConnet- Autotune: Fetch latest Network Settings: Not Fetched   Facebook
Could not fetch application and recommendation data from SourceCoast.com. Cached values were loaded, but may be out of date.
It's highly recommended that you make a successful connection to get the most up to date application data and recommendations.

That message usually indicates that your subscriber ID is incorrect or that a connection can't be made to our servers (possibly because of a firewall). Can you tell us if other Autotune features, like the Facebook App Configuration tab, work properly? That will help us understand if it's all settings, or just the Network Settings.
