XF 1.1 About Facebook Recommend/like button

#1
Isn't it supposed to increase the "like" count on actual Facebook page? When users like on forum home page, it simply increases the count on forum home page but not on actual Facebook page. I can't find a setting where I can enter my forum page url so that when users like it on xenforo, the count increases on my Facebook page as well.

Is there something that I am missing? Or is it just designed to share your page with Facebook friends and not actually "like" your Facebook page?

Hi Vijay,

The Like/Recommend button you see on the forum home page in the sidebar or on the footer in a thread is for sharing the current URL on your own wall/timeline.

It is not linked to your fan page.

What you want is something like this:

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/

You can generate the code and add that to your site. It will display your pages current status updates and also allow your visitors to like your Facebook page etc.
