Overview

Facebook Connect Social Shopping

Facebook Connect Social Shopping (FCSS) provides your site visitors the ability to connect with their Facebook friends without leaving your ecommerce store. They can recommend to their friends a purchase that they are making or ask advice to choose between items to purchase.

This will increase conversion rates on your site as well as pull in free traffic from Facebook through a direct contact from one of their friends – turning Facebook into a free, word-of-mouth affiliate. If friends are online on Facebook the interaction can be real-time.

Installation Instructions:

1) Install the "Modern" theme into your Magento installation.

2) Setup a Facebook Application by pointing your browser to: http://www.facebook.com/developers/createapp.php and follow the steps. Under Web Site > Site URL, use: http:// server / path to magento /index.php/fangento/. NOTE: This URL must be visible on the internet for this module to work! Facebook must be able to find this URL. It will not work for example on 'localhost' or a local IP/URL such as 127.0.0.1.

3) Navigate to System > Configuration > Fangento in your Magento admin and enter the "API Key" and "Application Secret" for your Facebook Application. (If you get an "Access Denied" error, logout and login to the admin again.)

4) Navigate to app/design/frontend/default/modern/template/page/2columns-left.phtml and add this attribute to the "html" tag: xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml".

This extension has been tested in IE 7+ and Firefox 3+.

Nice Extension but not working in 1.6.1 Community version showing error "community/Optaros_Fangento: Extension is 'beta' please check(or change) stability settings on Magento Connect Manager" April 24, 2012
Nice thought But it is not working in 1.5 August 19, 2011
nice idea but can't get it working in 1.5 June 10, 2011
Whilst on the face of it this seems like a useful feature for Facebook registered shoppers and would compliment a shop with a large facebook following, there is one major floor... The extension uses the deprecated facebook JavaScript SDK... In short if you are using the newer facebook JavaScript SDK to implement a LIKE button, LIKEBOX or COMMENTS and these features are implemented using the new facebook JavaScript SDK... This extension is not compatible... It would be good to hear from the developer as to if they intend to migrate to the newer future proof Facebook Javascript SDK May 23, 2011
Anyone getting this email log once or twice a day? The IP address seems to be coming from Amazon servers. We are not hosted on Amazon servers. Accessing /fangento/ajax/thread/ also triggers this email error log. We even tried to amend the robot.txt so search engines to not hit this page and cause an error, but it seems persistant. Anyone? URL: http://www.mywebsite.com/fangento/ajax/thread/ IP Address: 204.236.235.245 Time: 2011-03-08 14:49:45 GMT Error: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 2 March 8, 2011
i can't seem to get this extension to work with 1.4.1.1 get this error Fatal error: Call to a member function getId() on a non-object in fangento.phtml on line 13 Does this extension even work anymore saw a post that said from april 2010 it will not work December 19, 2010
Yes nice extension. FYI friends selection doesn't work in Chrome. The thumbs up or down is so feint it's barely visible it's a requirement until you get a message saying it's needed! Also when friend gets message it's not immediately obviously where the link is? Yes I found it eventually because I was looking for it but not so sure friends will when glancing at post?

update it for 1.4.2.0 please... December 12, 2010
