Other Widgets

Facebook widgets are a quick way to see what your Facebook friends liked, shared, or commented on across the Web:

Follow Button

The Follow button lets users subscribe to your public updates on Facebook with one click. You can configure it as a Joomla module to pull in the Facebook Follow button or our easy-tag system for even more flexibility.

* Please note that the Follow button will be rendered only if the Facebook user being followed allows their posts in your feed. Facebook users can allow people who are not their friends to follow their posts or limit the audience to Friends Only.

Send Button

The Send button from Facebook lets users share pages from your Joomla site to their Facebook friends easily.

Page Plugin

The Page plugin lets you easily embed and promote any Facebook Page on your website. Just like on Facebook, your visitors can like and share the Page without leaving your site.

Requests

The Facebook Request widget lets users send requests to their friends on Facebook. You can set up the request link to be an image or a text link.

Embedded Posts

Embedded Posts are a simple way to put public Facebook posts - by a Page or a person on Facebook - into the content of your web site or web page. Only public posts from Facebook Pages and profiles can be embedded.

Embedded Comments

Embedded comments are a simple way to put public post comments - by a Page or a person on Facebook - into the content of your web site or web page. Only public comments from Facebook Pages and profiles can be embedded.

Embedded Videos

With the embedded video player you can easily add Facebook videos and Facebook live videos to your website. You can use any public video post by a Page or a person as video or live video source.

 

How to Add a Facebook Widget to Joomla

JFBConnect gives you 2 easy methods to add the Facebook Widgets to your Joomla site: either through the SCSocialWidget module or the Facebook easy-tags, as described below.

SCSocialWidget Module

The SourceCoast Social Widget module, included with JFBCConnect, is an easy way to use the Joomla administrator interface to add a Facebook widget to your whole site, or any section or page within your site. Since it's a standard Joomla module, all the available parameters for the Facebook widgets are easily accessible.

As with any Joomla module, you can set the SCSocialWidget module to show in any template position, on any specific (or all) menu items of your site, and whether guest, registered, or special users can view it.

Facebook Easy-Tags

With the JFBConnect easy-tags, it's very easy to add the Facebook widgets to any Joomla article, custom HTML module, template or other area of your site. This is great for when a module just won't work, or you want even more customization for the widgets. To use the easy-tag, simply include any of the following snippets into your site's content, and JFBConnect will take care of the rest:

{JFBCFollow href=https://www.facebook.com/zuck layout=standard show_faces=true width=300 colorscheme=light}
{SCFacebookPagePlugin height=200 width=200 href=http://www.facebook.com/SourceCoast show_faces=true hide_cover=false tabs=timeline,events}
{JFBCSend url=http://www.sourcecoast.com/jfbconnect colorscheme=light}
