Using the Facebook Share and Facebook Login Controls

To use the Facebook share and Facebook login controls you need an API key of your Facebook application that will be used for this integration. We assume that you already know how to setup a Facebook application and where to get its API key, but if you don’t know you can simply login to your Facebook account and then go to online casino canada http://www.facebook.com/developers/createapp.php and create an application.

After creating the Facebook application, you will need to set its Connect URL property to the URL of your AbleCommerce store. Connect URL property is found on the “Connect” tab of your Facebook application and the API key can be found on the “Basic” tab.

After creating the Facebook application, setting its Connect URL, and getting its API key you are ready to use Facebook Login and Facebook Share controls on your store.

To enable Facebook Connect login/logout option for your store you can simply use the FBLogin control in your store header scriptlets as follows.

Facebook Share was used before Facebook introduced their Facebook Like API. Facebook Share implementation required the use of Facebook connect but Facebook Like did not need it.

The main purpose of using Facebook connect in AbleCommerce was to allow Facebook share. If you are looking for your uses to seamlessly use their Facebook on their AbleCommerce store then that is not possible because of certain limitations in both Facebook connect and AbleCommerce.
