Facebook for Virtuemart Questions

How can I set the Open Graph Image for the Flypage of Virtuemart?

When using JFBConnect to add Like buttons to your Virtuemart pages, you may notice that when a user Like's your products, a non-product image from the page may show in the user's wall. To fix this, you should use the Open Graph tags to let Facebook know what image should be used for wall posts. Adding the Open Graph tag can be done by modifying the flypage template file for the product page with the following code:

{SCOpenGraph image=<?php echo IMAGEURL.'product/'.$productArray['product_thumb_image']; ?>}

For our testing, we added the code above to the /components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/product_details/flypage.tpl.php file. This should be added just like normal HTML (outside of any PHP blocks). It can be added anywhere in the file, position does not matter.

Facebook has begun sending out notices to Facebook Application administrators that v2.0 of the Graph API will be deprecated on August 8, 2016. The message can be a bit cryptic on it's own. It's very difficult to know what it means when you're using an extension like JFBConnect for integration, since it's supposed to mask you from the inner workings of Facebook integration for Joomla. If you're confused, concerned or just curious, read our blog post to understand what the message means and what you need to do. https://lnkd.in/e8Uiikf
