Facebook Like button working even without Facebook App ID?

    So i never bothered to put in a Facebook App ID into my Admin CP options and to my surprise the "Facebook Like" button still appeared in a thread... to my bigger surprise it actually worked when I clicked on it? It said (My Name) likes this. (Unlike). So I clicked "unlike" and it went away again.

    So the question is- is this supposed to work even without entering any facebook account info? if so, how? :confused:

    Did you check whether your wall on Facebook was updated?

    You should have seen something like this:

    Your Facebook app id is used for the facebook login.
    The like button is independent from the app id you insert or not.

    facebook like button is like a regular sharing button similar to the one offered by twitter, digg and google buzz.

    it does not require any connection with an existing facebook account. if a user is logged in on his facebook account, it works instanteneously. if not, it would ask the user to login.

    facebook integration on XF is of course connected to enabling Facebook Connect powered account creation and login. :D

    I hope there will be an option in beta 2 to disable this button because loading scripts form fb slows down loading of the page.

    its an inline frame. it should not affect the loadtime of your board.

    I checked it twice with dev.tools. Until javascript isn't loaded the whole page is still loading.

    You can remove the buttons, with a little bit of tweaking
