JFacebook Post to Wall on Register

Here are some quick instructions of the use of the "Post to Wall on Register" plugin for JFacebook users.

The Plugin

  1. Install it
  2. Configure the above settings to what ever you like

The JF Login Module

This part is important. To be able to post any information to a user's Facebook page you have to have "PERMISSION". In this case that means the "Publish Stream" permission. That means you will need to ask the user at registration for that particular access.

In the JF Login Module configuration do the following:

  1. Check the 'Yes' option in the publish_stream permission parameter
  2. Also in the JF Login Module: Check the 'yes' option in the 'Use the custom permissions below' parameter

How to: Likes on your Facebook Page from your Joomla Website

One of our customers recently asked: "How do I get the likes for my website to show up on the Facebook Page I have set up for my business?".

Wanting to know the answer to this question myself, but having little time to think about it (being buried in code and all), I re-examined notes and documentation, and came up with the wrong answer. The answer I put forth, was "A vote for one, isn't a vote for the other". A Like for your Joomla website, is not a vote for your Facebook Page. They are two separate and distinct objects on the Facebook Social Graph. 

While this is true, there is an obvious (now) solution. Put the url of your Facebook page in an href  in your Like XFBML, i.e.

 <fb:like href="" mce_href=""></fb:like>

Do that one your site, and VOILA! Likes from your webpage will show up on your Facebook Page. 

To prove it, just click the Like button to the right and go check out the MMI app page: 

 Good Luck all!


The Like Box: Your Joomla Site with Your Facebook Page

The Like Box: From Joomla to Facebook

<fb:like-box profile_id="124178060945777"></fb:like-box> 

So this is how we solicit "Like" from our site for our Facebook Page. At this point in time you can't publish "Likes" and "Comments" for your website to you Facebook page. A vote for one thing, is not a vote for something else and they are two different things. 

You can "Like" this article, because its a Object in the FB Social Graph, but that doesn't mean you like the Facebook Page that I use to promote my site.
