Facebook Plugin

Post by Ron » Thu Oct 14, 2010 7:22 am

A Facebook plugin has been added to TheRunZone's message board which allows members to share "threads" or "posts" with their friends on Facebook!

Just click on the "Share" button in the upper right hand corner from within a thread and a Facebook Connect window will open. Encourage your Facebook friends to join in the conversation in the description box, click share, and that's it.
The post will show up in your Facebook News Feed with a link back to it on TheRunZone!

Ron,

I can't seem to locate that share button which you speak of. I thought it was my browser (Chrome), but I don't see it in IE either.

The only button I see in the upper right of a thread is the Quote button.

Anybody else have any luck with this?

Tom

Hey Tom,

I primarily use use Chrome myself.
First off, if you were not logged in to TheRunZone when you were looking for the button, it won't be there.
Once you are logged in you should see it in the upper right of the topic.

More than likely you were in the "reply" window though if you are seeing "Quote". Just go back to the topic and you should see it. If not, please let me know.

I'm not seeing it either, but the machine I'm on is running an older version of IE.

My apologies to both of you. I just logged in with a test account and the button was not there.
It appears to be a permissions issue.
I will look into it, and correct it.

The code has been modified to allow all users (even guest) to see, and use the Facebook Connect plugin.
The "Like" button has also been added in the title bar to quickly add a topic to your Facebook News Feed.

We are working on a Facebook Page now for TheRunZone.

We are hopeful that adding new features to the board, will expand our community and bring addition insight to our members.

Please let us know if you experience any difficulties.
