The sfFacebookSliderPlugin is an interface to facebook facepile. It easily add 'facebook' slider component to the project


This plugin for symfony 1.3/1.4. Facebook.com requires app registration on it's site to get app id. More info at [https://developers.facebook.com/apps]


1 - Install the plugin.

The easiest way to install sfFacebookSlider is to use the symfony command line:

> php symfony plugin:install sfFacebookSlider

Prefered method is to use github. Lastest commits are always there

> git clone https://github.com/zdanozdan/sfFacebookSliderPlugin

However recommended method is to fork the latest package from my git hub [https://github.com/zdanozdan/sfFacebookSlider]

2 - Register app on facebook.com and get key, and href forum parameters.

3 - Configure app.yml

facebook_slider: app_id: my app id from facebook data_href: href to facebook app

Those 2 are required to put in user app.yml config. Plugin however have more params to config in plugin/config directory and they can be user do further configure the plugin but they have default values

  >  facebook_slider:
    >   class: fb-like-box 
    >   style: background-color:white 
    >   data_width: 190 
    >   data_height: 380
    >   data_show_faces: "true"
    >   data_colorscheme: white
    >   data_stream: "false"
    >   data_header: "true"

4 - Clear the cache to enable the autoloading to find the new classes:

> php symfony cc

5 - Use helper to display javascript

In the template you can use sfFacebookSliderHelper do bind popup

getCulture()) ?>

This should be added before element so probably the best place would be layout.php (and every layout you want to display user voice feedback

 > <body>
 > HTML code here
 > <p>this is apps/frontend/templates/layout.php</p>
 >  <?php use_helper('FacebookSlider'); ?>
 >  <?php echo add_facebook_slider_js($sf_user->getCulture()) ?>
 >  <?php echo render_facebook_slider() ?>
 > </body>

Culture should be in form 'en_US'. If you have symfony culture in form 'en' you can baypass that using second param

 >  <?php echo add_facebook_slider_js($sf_user->getCulture(),'US') ?>
