Usage

OR

Iframe

  • Add the Facebook Page Container component where you would like the widget to appear.

Overriding Settings

  • You can override the Facebook Page Username and App ID in the component settings.
  • You can also reorder the tabs in the component settings by re-arranging the comma separated list for "Tab Order".

Troubleshooting

  • If you are having trouble displaying the JavaScript SDK, check your website for JavaScript conflicts. Also make sure you added the FB JavaScipt SDK component to the layout page right below the <body> tag. If all else fails, try switching to the iframe.
  • If neither the iframe and the JavaScript SDK display, try activating URL validation to check if there is an issue with the Facebook URL. (See Requirements above). Also make sure that the page is published and not restricted by age or country.
  • Please log any issues on GitHub.
