Facebook Requests

Table of Contents

Request Creation

Each request needs to be created in the Joomla admin area before it can be sent to users. This is where you will set the request description the user will see on Facebook, the URL the user should go to when accepting the request, and other information specific to each request.

Request Listing

To begin, go to the JFBConnect -> Requests section in the Joomla Administrator area. You should see a view like above. Click the "New" button to begin creating a new Facebook Request that can be sent to users.

Request Creation

In the Create Request form, the following fields need to be filled in:

Title: Text in the titlebar of the popup window users will see on the frontend when sending the request to friends. This setting is not used for app requests sent from the admin area, but is still good to label the request for finding it later.

Message: The text a users will see on Facebook when viewing the request.

Destination URL: The URL a user is redirected to when accepting the request. This must be a full path URL (http://www.sourcecoast.com/link-to-page)

Thank You URL: The URL a user is redirected to after sending a request to their friends. This must be a full path URL (http://www.sourcecoast.com/thanks). This setting is not used for app requests sent from the admin area.

Redirect From Canvas: When disabled, the destination URL will be shown with the Facebook canvas area frameset.
When enabled, the destination URL will be shown within the Facebook canvas area frameset and navigation will take place on Facebook.

Published (right-hand side): Unpublished requests will be hidden selection options for being sent. Outstanding requests that have already been sent, but not accepted, will still be processed like normal.
