Post by Guest on May 8th 2011, 11:52 pm

it allows users on a forum to like other users post or even their own post without logging into their fb accounts.

yeah the problem with this is that you have to add the link into the code,

So even if you was to place in a template for it to appear in all post like they have it. when someone clicks like, it's going to show in every other post as well because you can only place one link into the code of what page it is on..

so the only way to do this, would be to provide your members with the code, then explain they have to put their post link in the code and have the code posted in their post.



so if you have your html enabled your members can add this to their post.
After the send the post through, they then have to go back and edit the link to thire post in the code below where marked. POST THREAD LINK HERE

Code:
<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=POST THREAD LINK HERE%2F&amp;send=true&amp;layout=standard&amp;width=450&amp;show_faces=true&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;font&amp;height=80" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px; height:80px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>

But other then doing it this way,no matter what you do when you add to the template it can only be one link, so no matter what pages they are on it's going to show like for all pages it's on


if you read here you will understand what i mean better.

right..

but you will see what i mean when you add it to a template somewhere.
it's always going to bounce back to the link thats in the code.
it can be on a completely different page and it wont matter because the code has the same link.

So there is no way to incorporate it to have separate likes for each thread/post .the only way to do that is to add the different link for each post and just place it in the individual post.

see here at the top left of the thread you see the like,
Now that will be at the top of every post you create.
the problem is when you click like, it's always going to bounce back to that thread link, plus if someone hist like in a completely different post, then all likes are going to show up in every thread.

http://www.forumsuccessors.com/t4-forum-successors-overview

the code is only meant to be placed once on different web page with a different link to what ever page each time.. by putting it in the template you can only have one link.. so if doing that you may just want to add your forums index link so it always goes back to your forum..

oh you wont be-able to add it to a template anyway , your using invision.
But you can add to widgets,home page message or general announcement.
so in that case just decide what link you want in there for it to bounce back top and go with that Smile

Now if you see i have the facebook features incorporated on html pages,
then it will always go to the individual page you have it on because it will be the page link you have in the code etc...

http://www.forumsuccessors.com/h36-forumsuccessorsoverview

and this is how you can add to your post.

then if your members want to add it, just tell them to add their post link to the code and have it in their post

no it should not effect your forum,
although it may not fit in a widget without expanding the dimensions of the widget box,
So i would add to the top center,middle center or bottom center of a widget in the portal only

btw whenever i click on anything in the templates thing it always says
In this page, you can modify templates and change your forum look.
Modified templates are written in red.
To use the default template again, delete your template by clicking on delete.

Only templates of phpbb2 or PunBB versions will be affected.
and then i cant see anything else after that

then you don't have templates... you can only edit templates if your using forum version PHPBB2 or PunBB, and your profiles says your using invision so you cant edit templates.
