NWS Facebook Social Plugins

Sorry for not giving answears and not updating this package, I do not have time at the moment.
If anyone would like to conribute or continue work on it, please contact me.

Just a simple wrapper around som of the Facebook plugins (iframe versins not XFBML).
See http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

The plugins in this package are:

  • Like Button
  • Like Box
  • Activity Feed
  • Live Stream
  • Recomendations
  • Facepile (new in 2.0)
  • Comments (new in 2.0)

Insert the macro in a template or in RTE, fill out the properties, for info on properties go to the Facebook plugin page.

The macro need to be within a form runat="server" or else the script include will not register.
If you do not want that you can place the script include in your template manually
<script src="/scripts/NWS/FacebookSocialPlugins.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Version 2.0:
Facepile and comments plugins added.
"Ref" and "Filter" parameter added on some of the plugins.
Javascript loader, so the iframe loading do not disturb the rest of page load.
A parameter "Include Script" added, if you do not want to handle script registering yourself, check this box. Behind the scenes it is now using MSBuild and ILMerge to handle package build, thanks for inspiration Matt Brailsford (http://blog.mattbrailsford.com/).

Small fix, if you do not enter an url in like box/button it defaults to current url.
The only change is in the "NWS.FacebookSocialPlugins.dll" so if you installed this already, you only need to copy the new DLL.

Version 1.0:
Initial release.

The 2.0 version should work in both 3.5 and 4.0 build. Tested on Umbraco 4.5 (no XSLT used).
