Siteflex Facebook Integration
Siteflex incorporates Facebook integration features allowing you to integrate Facebook components right into your own webpages. With this development, you can now bring the benefits of a wide social network right into your own website.
Let's look at how you can build Facebook Like and Comments functionality into your pages, and then we'll show you how to get your Siteflex website talking back to Facebook, so your Siteflex posts can be linked straight into your Facebook account.
For the more visually-oriented amongst us, watch the Facebook Integration with Siteflex video below, and then continue reading for more details.
When your visitors find something on your site that they really like, wouldn't you want them to tell all their friends about it? Now they can, with Facebook Like integration in Siteflex. Let your visitors generate a word of mouth buzz surrounding your site, by telling their family and friends, in an easy and familiar format.
To include the Facebook Like utility on your website, just place the percent code fblike on your page, and then save. If your visitors are logged into Facebook when they view your page, they will be shown the Facebook Like button. If they are not logged in to Facebook, they will be given the opportunity to log in to their account before liking your content.
Want to develop a community through your website, and generate discussion on your content? What better way than to let your visitors use their Facebook accounts to comment on your pages. These comments will help generate discussion and interaction with your site, and allow you to maintain a dialogue with your audience. Let your visitors promote your website for you!
To include Facebook Comments on your web page, simply edit the page and place the fbcomments percent code within the page. Save, and then wait for the comments to roll in.

Harness the power of the RSS feeds that are already being produced by your Siteflex website and import them into Facebook using the FB app, RSS Graffiti.
The main RSS feed being produced by your website is found at http://www.yoursite.com.au/libs/rss.asp and for our power-users, you can target a specific RSS feed for publishing to your facebook page by using a particular type of RSS feed, e.g. http://www.yoursite.com.au/libs/rss.asp?type=news
