Facebook Like Button Plugin for Mango Blog
Project Home • Known Issues • Contact Project
Facebook Like Plugin based on version 1, created by Pyae Phyoe Shein. After the recent Faebook announcement about the recent button change, this updates what Shein constructed to incorporate the new meta tags and several new administrative settings.
Version 2.0 of the Facebook Like plugin adds several options into the admin panel to help control the new functionality. In addition to the Layout option, there is now Label, Show Faces, Button Width, Button Height, Blog Title, Facebook Admin ID(s), and Default Image.
Layout: The Like Button offers a few display options. There is the standard version, the button count (thin rectangle with a count of likes) and box count (small cube with a count of likes).
Label: The Like Button comes with the option of using the label Like or Recommend. That can now be controlled from the admin panel.
Show Faces: The Like Button provides the option to display tiny thumbnail images of the people that have liked the page or post.
Button Width: The Like Button uses an iframe. This option controls the width of that iframe.
Button Height: This option controls the width of button iframe.
The plugins also utilizes two Mango Blog events (beforeHtmlHeadEnd and beforePostContentEnd) to populate the meta tags and button onto the page/site. The beforeHtmlHeadEnd event is used to populate the new meta tags used.
The plugin allows for a custom image to be specified per post simply by using a new custom field per post. In Mango Blog, there is the option to incorporate a custom field. The plugin is setup to look for a custom field labeled ‘facebook-image’. If that exists, it will use that data when submitting information to a user's Facebook stream.
