Facebook "Group" Wall at the side of my Forum

Post by wattsey on August 21st 2012, 6:23 pm

Hi All,

Is it possible to have a live feed from a facebook group on the side of my forum???

I currently have a live Twitter feed on one side and would love to have a live Facebook Group Wall on the other so people can see instantly what's written on our groups wall.

Any ideas? I already have the 'like' buttons.

This is not hard to do.

Code:
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script>(function(d, s, id) {
  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
  js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=APP_ID";
  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

Code:
<div class="fb-live-stream" data-event-app-id="YOUR APP ID" data-width="400" data-height="500" data-xid="UNIQUE ID" data-always-post-to-friends="false"></div>

The first code is the Javascript SDK that you will post and leave alone. Unless you know what to do with it.

the second code is what you will configure. Firstly where it says "YOUR APP ID" is what you will need to get the location of the group which you will need an id for.

Data width or height can be configured though you should leave it alone.

UNIQUE ID is in case you have multiple streams on here. If not just delete the XID

data-always-post-to-friends="false" can be changed to "true" though I would advise to leave it alone.

Hope this helps...Though they will be making this unavailable soon. October I believe. You can create a comments section maybe/.

Thanks!

How do I get the "location id" to insert in the "YOUR APP ID" bit?

Why is it becoming unavailable?
