Using Connect

The easiest way to add your Facebook Pages (that you are an Admin for) is to use the Connect button to authenticate against Facebook. Once you have connected you will see a list of pages in the Facebook Page field. Choose the Facebook Page you would like and click the "Set Values" button. The URL, Name and ID for your Facebook Page will be entered into the correct fields.


There are three main components to the Fan a Page box. There are various Render Handlers available on the "Facebook Pages Element". They each control the following data in the Fan a Page box:

  • Logobar - the Facebook logo at the top
  • Stream - wall posts from the page that is being displayed
  • Fans - Facebook users that are Fans for the page
