Facebook is one of the largest social media all over the world with functionality allowing to bring integration with clients to the next level. Our widget gives you a possibility to show your posts from Facebook and communicate with users without difficulties. Enjoy convenient settings of Facebook Widget:
The whole installation doesn’t take much time and efforts. To have your widget installed properly, you need to perform only two actions: extract files from the downloaded folder with the extension to your Magento installation folder and then flush your cache.
Apart from allowing you to turn the extension on and off, you Facebook Widget has a configuration for enabling every created widget separately. So, if you want to temporary switch a widget off, just go to its configuration list and set the relevant option. Flexible settings allows you to perform it.
Facebook widgets are easy to configure due to their simple and comprehensible configurations. Every setting has a clear purpose and a small description just in case. All the main configurations are located on the widget pages, so you can adjust every widget separately.
The flexible configurations of Facebook Widget allow you to set different widget on different pages. Decide on what information you find more interesting and display it on this or that page. You can even post widgets with content from different accounts if you manage a number of them.
When using Facebook Widget, you don’t have to connect your profile with Magento by various complex means or code manipulations. Just set your url in the relevant field and then don’t forget to save the settings. The configurations will apply immediately. Remember that you are able to use Facebook Business Account only.
Facebook Widget allows you to decide what to show your customers in widgets: your account’s Timeline, Events, or even both of them at once. On frontend the set widget will have separate tabs for Timeline and Events, so users will be able to switch to the tab they want to learn more about. Still, if you don’t want to have this or that tab displayed, simply don’t pick it in configurations.
You can add a function of a quick feedback form to your widget. The tab Messages allows your users to log in their Facebook account and send you a direct message. You don’t have to spend time on developing a separate page for a contact form as this extension provides you with one. Moreover, you will see the sender’s name and profile, so you will be able to answer him or her any time.
You can adjust the size of any set widget the way you want by indicating its width and height in pixels. Some websites require small widgets due to specific design and others will suit big ones. Decide on what will be better for your store and implement the idea instantly.
Your widgets shouldn’t be the same on all the pages. Our extension allows you to add a separate widget with their own configurations to any page you like. They don’t have to be completely the same - diversify them and their content. Set different urls, sizes, displayed tabs, etc.
There are even more features for widget customization, like showing Facebook friends, who liked your posts or adapting to plugin container width. Enjoy additional settings in your widget and make each of them look in its own way.
To use the extension, one must turn it on in the first place. To do so, go to System > Configuration > NEKLO > Facebook Page Plugin. Here in “General Configurations” you will find the only setting applicable for the whole extension at once - switching the extension on and off. Set “Yes” in the field “Is Enabled” to have your extension turned on.
To set up a new widget or edit an existing one, go to CMS > Widgets. Here you will find the table with all the widgets on your store, not only Facebook. To add your first Facebook widget, press the button “Add New Widget Instance”. Set here the type “[NEKLO] Facebook Page Plugin” and your store design in “Design Package/Theme”. When everything is set, click on “Continue”. New options will appear right after that.
You will appear in the tab Frontend Properties. The first new field you will see is “Widget Instance Title”. It sets the name of your widget instance. Call it the way you like and make it easy to find in the general widget table. Then goes “Assign To Store Views”, where you can choose the particular Store Views for this widget. Set the sort order of this widget to know where it will be located in the extension list.
In the block “Layout Updates” you can set the exact place for this widget in the store. In the fields “Display On” set the pages for widget display. “Block Reference” regulates the exact place on a page for a Facebook widget. You can add a number of Layout Updates if necessary or remove them.
There is another tab with configurations touching upon the widget appearance itself. You can switch this particular widget on and off with the option “Is Enabled”. In “URL Key” you can set the url of the account, whose posts you want to show. Then goes size configurations. Set the desired “Width” and “Height” in pixels and check it on frontend after applying configurations.
There are three content modes available to display in the extension: Timeline, Events, and Messages. These modes are displayed as separate tabs in a widget, so you can use all three of them if you wish. The option “Timeline” shows your Facebook posts from the correspondent news feed. “Events” displayed relevant events of the chosen Facebook account. The situation with “Messages” is a bit different - this tab turns your widget in a kind of a feedback form, where your visitors can log in using their Facebook account and leave a message for you. It will be received by your connected Facebook account.
The rest of functions allows for better widget customization. For example, “Hide Cover Photo” prohibit display of the widget’s cover photo. “Show Friend’s Faces” shows the friends, who liked a post and “Hide CTA” conceals the call-to-action button if there is any. With “Use Small Header” you can use a smaller header in your widget. The last setting here is “Adapt to plugin container width” that indicates that the plugin will try to fit inside the connected container.
