Social Network Modules

 

Modules are easy ways to insert the social widgets into your site using available module positions in your template.

SCSocialWidget module

The SCSocialWidget module is installed when JFBConnect is installed on your site. It provides the ability to add any of the social widgets that JFBConnect supports for all supported social network providers. Some examples for each social network are shown below, but see here for a complete list. To use, navigate to the Modules area by going to "Extensions->Module Manager". and click into the SCSocialWidget module you wish to use (or click "New" for a new instance). Then, configure each module to customize the view and behavior of the module.
