The Like Box is a social plugin that enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to:
- See how many users already like this Page, and which of their friends like it too
- Read recent posts from the Page
- Like the Page with one click, without having to actually visit the page
This simple module provides a block to integrate this plugin into Drupal using an iframe, and allows users with 'administer blocks' permission to configure the different attributes provided by Facebook in the block configuration.
Facebook Likebox Patterns (Drupal 7 only)
Facebook Likebox provides an optional submodule named fb_likebox_patterns since version 7.x-1.4, allowing full integration with the module patterns.
Patterns provides an extremely powerful way to perform automatic system configuration. A set of patterns with the most common configurations of Facebook Likebox are provided in the submodule, and the configuration of the module with patterns can be done in just one click. You can also export your current configuration in order to re-use it, share it, version-control it, etc.
Further instructions on how to use patterns with FB Likebox can be found here.
Since version 7.x-1.7 of FB Likebox was released, we recommend the use of Patterns 7.x-2.x.
