    Hi there,

    I have just enabled and have been approved for a facebook app.
    The application in question is here http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=202898466395890&sk=wall
    I would like to know how i would go about setting this up correctly as i have no clue about this.
    Our site is located here http://fixitwizkid.com
    When i use the like button on the forum the post goes to my personal facebook page and not the WizKid app page.
    Would anyone be able to guide me on correcting this problem.

    Thankyou so much for your time :whistle:

    This should help: http://xenforo.com/help/facebook/

    Clicking Like will post the thread on wall of the Facebook account which you are logged in to at the time and has nothing to do with the app which is just for logging in and registering.

    You don't need an app to use the Like feature.

    Is it possible to place the likes on the application wall instead on my own personal wall?
    I'm not sure how this all works to be quite honest.

    The app is just a tool to help others log in and register on your forum.
    It's not designed for that purpose.

    The Like button only allows content to be posted on personal Facebook accounts.

    You can get a Facebook page for your site but you can't post content to it using the Like button. You need to manually post content to update the page.
    This is an example of a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/XenForo

    This is probably a dum question but how is the content generated on the page it if does not receive likes. I can see lots of content on the Xenforo page.

    It's manually updated by the page owners and other contributors.

    So people need to write on the wall for this to happen, is this correct.
