Sorry folks...for some reason I have not been getting notifications of new posts in this thread.

jjakes24... I just went to your site and clicked like on http://www.stupidhockey.com/hockey-wheels-a-accessories/hockey-wheels-bearings/detail/81-wheels-bearings/flypage.pbv.tabs/210-bevo-abec-3-bearings-16-pack?sef=hcfp.  It posted the correct image to my wall, so I assume that you got it fixed.

joomlaforever.... no, no VM2 plugin yet.  I need to get the time to upgrade my own site to VM2 before I can do this.  Hopefully in the next couple of months.

ludmoral... haven't heard of that issue before.  can you post a sample url?

shakensoul ... I went to your site and clicked like on http://www.futuresounds.in/future-sounds/bihu-songs/jaanmoni-anjana-2009 and it properly posted the product to my wall with the correct image, so I assume that you fixed it.

Hello Kevin.

I introduced Facebook to my webshop. I have a general 'like' button of my company in my sidebar.
I know that when I want to use them for my products I have to use the XFBML version. But I want the like button to show my company logo and description every time someone likes it.

I activated the button but when I click in them I see a wrong image. I use the Iframe code, because it's my only like button.

Do you have any tips?

I cannot access your site as it is currently down for maintenance.  Are you saying that instead of the product images being used by Facebook you just want your company logo used?

Hi,

I'm new here.
I'm trying to get this working.
The buttons appear on the site, but sometimes the textfield disappears when I try to enter it...
In Facebook I only get "an image" of the site (not the product image) and the productname isn't there at all.

Can somebody help me

Looking at the source for your page, I see:
<meta property="og:image" content="dccb8223891a17d752bfc1477d320da9.jpg"/>

The image tag content should be a full URL pointing to the thumbnail image.  What version of VM and Joomla are you running?

Hello Kevin.

Today I'm trying to integrate Facebook with my webshop.
I used your tutorial, documentation and forum posts.

But I have a problem.
When I 'Like' a product, it works, it looks like it works perfectly.

But, when I go to FB I don't see my like.
One time, I saw my like on FB but it didn't have an image or a description.
Other times I click on 'like' but I get a error message. Something like: Facebook is unable to get content of your website.

I installed the open graph plugin, installed the SDK plugin and install recanonical plugin.
In the Open graph plugin I added a f: og:image  Is this correct?
In the admin section I added my id of facebook. I only added the number? Is this correct?


Thanks in advance

Update! It's working now! The problem was that I don't created an fb app. With only a user I get a few errors.

Hello Kevin,

I have a problem with my facebook open graph like button.

- I disabled the cookies in virtuemart
- Entered the xfbml code into the correct standard flypage.

Then I installed the open graph plugin.
- Open graph type: og:image
- Add the og:url : Yes
- Facebook ID: I have a FB account and a FB page. Do I need to insert the ID of my user account or is it also possible to use the ID from my FB Page?
- In FB I have a sef user url. So I can't see my user ID. But when I hover my profile picture I see my user ID. Is that the correct one? Or is there a better way to find my user id? (Because every picture has a different user ID.

As you can see on my website (PM) the facebook like is working, but I can't get the images to work.

Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance.

Gr Luuk
