  • The Facebook app

    I am running 3.8x, so the $99 FB app will work, I assume. I've read the features and watched the promo video, basically what I am looking for if I buy this is the following:

    A Like icon next to forum posts
    When a member clicks the Like button, the forum post appears on his FB news feed
    The post Like button now has a running total of likes, "5 people Like this post" or something similar

    Does the app do that? Does my forum need to be on an https or will http be ok?

    thx

    well if had v4 it has Facebook connect which has this without having to spend $99 to buy the Facebook app... but v3.8 doesn't have Facebook connect so guess really your only option is to pay the money to get the Facebook app but it won't put like button on your normal page they will actually have to go to https://apps.facebook.com/yourlink/ as v3.8 has absolutely no Facebook functionality built into it...

    I would just get 4.1.12

      Thanks but no, we cannot move to 4.1 without serious issues around migrating our assets.

      I'm hoping to hear from one of the vB team in this pre-sale forum about their Faceboo app, my questions above.

        No, this is not what the app does

        What you're asking can be done for free by adding the facebook badge to your site.

          The facebook app works with vB3.8 but it wont add facebook features to your 3.8 install.

            And it definitely wont add per-post liking functionality.

            vBSEO does. "Post Thanks Mod" does. Facebook Connect does not.

            (It's a terrible idea to have FB Likes for posts, Threads yes, posts no.)
