Get it now!The Facebook All-In-One DMS section combines three great Facebook Social widgets: “Like Box,” “Like Button” & “Comments.” Each mode allows you to easily integrate your site with the people on Facebook. You can easily integrate your Facebook App ID and custom Open Graph Meta Tags.

With this section, you will be able to place the following types of content on your site:

Like Box:

  • Enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to:
  • See how many users already like this Page, and which of their friends like it too
  • Read recent posts from the Page
  • Like the Page with one click, without needing to visit the Page

Like Button:

  • Lets a user share your content with friends on Facebook. When the user clicks the Like button on your site, a story appears in the user’s friends’ News Feed with a link back to your website.
  • A Send button is also included, but it can be disabled if you choose

Comments:

  • Enables user commenting on your site using their Facebook profile.
Get it now!Open Graph Meta Tags help control how your webpage interacts with Facebook. To used these tags, just enable them in the section’s DMS Settings. Remember to disable any Open Graph tags that are set by other plugins you might have, otherwise each set of tags will load in your page’s header, and there will be confliction.


A common issue you may notice is that when you setup a custom tag, you won’t see the change reflected on Facebook right away, even though you can see that your custom tag did load. This is because Facebook has a cache system in place that resets every 24 hours. So if you need to flush the cache for that page or post, you can with wait up to 24 hours, or you can flush the cache manually.

To flush the cache manually, go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/, enter the URL, and hit “Debug.” Not only will it flush the cache for that page/post, it will also show you any errors you may have.

og:image

When using the Like Button, you can specify the image that will appear on Facebook that represents what is being liked. If you do not specify an image in the PageLines Meta Settings, the og:image tag will link to the page’s Featured Image. If no Featured Image is set, then the og:image tag will not appear in your page’s <head> section.

og:title

You can leave this blank in the PageLines Meta Settings, but if you wanted to you can add your own custom title to whatever your Like Button is set to Like. If this is left blank, the og:title tag will simply default to the WordPress title of the page or post being liked.

og:description

You can leave this blank in the PageLines Meta Settings, but if you wanted you can type your own description for whatever it is being liked. This description will appear underneath Title of what is being liked on Facebook. If you leave this field blank, it will default to a 15 word excerpt of the page’s content.

og:type

This specifies the type of entity that is being liked. In the PageLines Meta settings, you will see a drop down of all the available types to choose from. If you do not specify one, the og:type tag will default to “article”

og:site_name

You can leave this blank in the PageLines Meta Settings, but if you wanted to you can set your own custom Site Title. If you leave this field blank, the og:site_name tag will simply default to the WordPress Site Name.

og:url

You can leave this blank in the PageLines Meta Settings, but if for some reason you wanted to specify a different URL other than the one being liked, you can do so here. Keep in mind that if you specify a different URL, the Like Button will use whatever tags are set for that URL, & ignore all your other Open Graph tags that you have set. If you leave this field blank, the og:url tag will simply default to the page’s own URL.

fb:admins

You can moderate comments by simply specifying your Facebook user ID as the admin, however you won’t have as much functionality as you would using a Facebook App ID (see below). You can list multiple admins here by listing each Facebook User ID separated by a comma. If this field is left blank in the PageLines Meta Settings, the fb:admin tag will not appear in your page’s <head> section.

fb:app_id

When you assign your page or post to a Facebook application, you will have greater control over the functionality of the Facebook All-In-One DMS section. Anybody listed as an administrator of the Facebook Application you assign will have administrative rights to the section on the front end.

For example: If you are using the Facebook Comments section, administrators have the ability to moderate the Facebook comments left on each page or post. You also can choose to make the default for new comments entered either “visible to everyone” or “has limited visibility” on the site (i.e., the comment is only visible to the commenter and their friends), to help mitigate irrelevant content.

Admins can also blacklist words and ban users. If a new comment is published from a banned user or contains a blacklisted word, this comment will automatically have limited visibility.

You can moderate comments from the front end of each page inline. If you have specified your app id as the admin, you can moderate all your site’s comments at http://developers.facebook.com/tools/comments.
