Attention green.png Important Information:
  • If you have the Live Feed module installed on your website and want the products to be added to the Feed Page after user clicks on social media buttons or Fave button, you should enter extra line in the "CALLBACK CODE": plumrocketFaveObserveEvent(url, type);

Check the example of using Facebook Like Button Callback Code:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
 FB.Event.subscribe('edge.create', function(url) {
 plumrocketFaveObserveEvent(url, '{{type}}');
 });
});
  • HEADER SCRIPT and BUTTON CODE - can be received at social media websites by means of buttons generation service
  • if needed "HEADER SCRIPT", "BUTTON CODE", "CALLBACK CODE" can be supplemented with variable expressions
Variable expressions are presented in the following format:
{{TAG_NAME}} - these expressions will be replaced by the appropriate ones during parser processing
Standard expressions that can be used here:
{{url}}
{{type}}
{{media}}
{{description}}


Note, that the option plumrocketFaveObserveEvent(url, '{{type}}') is the key here, since it is responsible for callback in the Faves Module. It uses the page URL that are 'liked' and button type as the criteria to provide the statistics.
