Index > Adding a Facebook widget

Wizz-it offers a rage of Facebook widgets that you can add to your website, Like Button, Like box (similar to like button but with more information displayed), Activity feed (shows users what their friends are doing on your site through likes and comments) and Recommendations (gives users personalized suggestions for pages on your site they might like). You can read more about these widgets on the Facebook website.

An excellent way to promote and share your website's content is with the Facebook "Like" button. You can add a Facebook "Like" button to any, and all, of your site's pages. When a visitor clicks on the "Like" button, a story appears in their friends' News Feed, with a link back to your website, or page.

Here's how to add a Facebook widget to your site:

  1. The Facebook Widget is located in the "Social" folder in the Sidebar. Drag and drop it onto your page.
  2. Once dragged the facebook dialog box will open up.
  3. Select the type of facebook widget you want to use.
  4. If you don't have a default domain name, uncheck the Automatic box under the 'Your Domain Name' section and enter your full domain name (this option is not for Like box - here you should enter your Facebook Page Address instead).
  5. Enter the dimensions of the facebook widget (you can leave this blank and we will use the default dimensions).
  6. If you selected the Like box: Enter the colour scheme (The colour of the like count and button) and whether you want to show Faces (the profile picture of the visitors who have liked your page) and your Stream.
  7. Alignment: You can align the widget to the left, to the center, or to the right.
  8. When you're finished setting up your button, click "Save".
  9. Save your site, and then click on the green "Publish" button to make your changes live.
