Facebook Page BBcode not working

Post by feruchio » Sun May 13, 2018 10:16 am

Hello, I have been trying to embed my facebook page into my forum (http://awesomecs.syntrwave.com/) exactly bellow "Announcements" text
Image
so I have created bbcode for that, but sadly it does not show I don't seem to get why, this is how it looks
Image

Code: Select all

<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/page.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fawesomecarscs%2F&tabs=timeline&width=500&height=500&small_header=true&adapt_container_width=true&hide_cover=false&show_facepile=false&appId=1614827465214616" width="500" height="500" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>
Interesting things is that I have added facebook like button bellow exactly the same way and it works. :shock:
I would be glad if someone is able to help me somehow, thanks. :)

Have a look at media embed.

I can't make that work as a bbcode at all. the iframe code works if you put it in a web page but it doesn't work if you use it for a bbcode.

also, how did you put that radionet player in the forum description?
aslo, I would suggest that putting a website in a iframe anywhere on your board is not really a very good idea.

Yea me too and can't understand how this one which is for facebook button like of the page works pretty much the same way and it shows correctly.

<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fawesomecarscs%2F&width=118&layout=button_count&action=like&size=small&show_faces=false&share=true&height=46&appId=1614827465214616" width="118" height="46" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>

Same way with bbcode from radio.net code embed widget.

At the moment I am using this media embed and from what can I see from the description of yours there is not much a difference between them, so at this point, I don't see how can yours help me accomplish what I want, also does not become clear if it works for facebook page embedding (probably not as mine does not, and they are very similar).

The extension by JoshyPHP is now marked [ABD] presumably because the official one has taken over. Can you post the actual FB link you’re trying to embed please?

Yea I saw that, but both of those plugins do not feature such a thing, embedding of a Facebook page into a post, they work for embedding images, certain post or videos from facebook, but not the whole page.
The iframe (code) that I am trying to embed and make it work is in the first post, bellow.
This is the page > https://www.facebook.com/awesomecarscs/

I have found a way around it, apparently, you can have only one iframe from facebook in you forum, so I just replaced code of the like button with the code of page iframe and now it shows up. ;)
