    This is very good extension to socialise web site. Easy to install and config extension create shop more sociable. I will use them and it is free.

  • This extension has great features!


    first i was stuck, than find a solution: just some tweak to use is copy files to app\design\frontend\yourpackage\default\template\fbfanbox\. and use in block or page like below {{block type="fbfanbox/fbfanbox" name="fbfanbox" template="fbfanbox/fbfanbox.phtml"}}

  • Works as intended


    If you read the manual, everything works like a charm. In my case, no changes to templates or other files were required, I just had to paste the block code into a static block.

  • Reply to Limei He


    Hi Limei, Regading to your issue, there are 2 reasons which may cause your situation: 1. Maybe you haven't added code to the CMS page in order to show the facebook fanpage -> you should check the userguide for this issue. 2. you are using custom theme and the template hasn't been uploaded into your theme's file -> you should upload file template of the extension into your theme's file, that will be ok. If you have tried these 2 ways but the problem still can't be resolved, you should submit ticket and give us your website's information, our support will help you check it. Best regards, Magestore

    I know it doesnt say that it is supposed in Magento 1.8, but any plans to make it work? I tried it just for the heck of it, and it doesnt work. Filled out all the required information, and added the block code to a CMS page with no luck. Guess I will have to wait till an update is made. If you have any recommendations on how to get to work on Magento Community 1.8, please email me at "". Thanks! Chirag
