Content Plugin

The content plugin allows you to automatically add Like and Comments functionality to your Joomla or K2 content. To set up the content plugin, you will need to:

  1. Style the Like button or Comment boxes as desired. JFBConnect provides separate settings for Joomla Article/K2 Item layouts versus the various Blog layouts. A good example is to show a limited amount of comments on a blog view, and more on the article view.
  2. Then, select which layouts the Like button or Comment box will be displayed in. For Joomla, we support the Article, Section blog, Category blog and Frontpage/Featured layouts. For K2, we support the Item, Category, Tag, Userpage, and Latest layouts.
  3. In addition, you can further specify particular articles/items, categories or sections that the social content should or should not display in. 
Content Plugin - JoomlaContent Plugin - K2

The content plugin is the simplest way to add these features to all of your articles.

To enable the plugin, access the administration area of your site and go to "Extensions->Plugin Manager". Then enable the "Content - JFBCContent" plugin.

Troubleshooting

  • If your Pinterest button is not showing up and there is an image on the page, please enable the 'Open Graph - Content' plugin for JFBConnect to find the image.
  • If you are using the JLinkedApply module or system tag, you will need to order the Content Plugin before the "Email Cloaking" Content Plugin.

With the launch of v2.0 of the Facebook Graph API over 2 years ago, a new review process was also implemented for all Facebook Applications. The review process is Facebook's way to verify that deeper integration features on your site are abiding by Facebook's Terms of Service. There's a lot to understand about the process and some of it may surprise you. Some JFBConnect features like posting to your Facebook Page usually don't even need to go through the review process. For the features that do need review, what's the process and how do you proceed? Read our blog post to find out. https://lnkd.in/eKbiwbb
