README

There are several other Facebook integration modules out there but I didn't find any that were just a really simple like button. This should be super easy to use and it integrates with the OpenGraph module: https://github.com/tractorcow/silverstripe-opengraph.

Requirements

Silverstripe 3.0+

Maintainer

Mark Guinn - markguinn@gmail.com Pull requests welcome.

Installation

Download this module into a folder in the root of your project. Does not require /dev/build.

Usage

The simplest case is to add this to _config/config.yml:

Page:
  extensions:
    - FBLikeButtonExtension

Then add $FacebookJSSDK to your main template right after the body tag. Then just add $LikeButton anywhere you want one. If you're using the OpenGraph module the app ID will be pulled from that, otherwise you'll need to set:

FBLikeButtonExtension:
  application_id: YOURAPPIDHERE

Application ID's can be attained here: https://developers.facebook.com/apps Any changes to the default configuration can be made as follows:

FBLikeButtonExtension:
  application_id: YOURAPPIDHERE
  default_button_config:
    layout: button_count

Using the same attributes found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/

Any Page class or subclass can also implement a getFBLikeButtonConfig method to override the default configuration.

Bonus Twitter Support

Twitter support is so easy it doesn't really need it's own module. But you get if for free with this one. Just add $TwitterShareButton anywhere in a Page context. It will also work fine in a list of pages (like a blog or search list).
