Drupal 'facebook social' like views field

Kevin's picture

Q: How can I include a facebook like button from the '[url=http://drupal.org/project/fb_social]Facebook social plugins integration[/url]' module in a view as a field, the module doesn't seem to have views integration?
A: Install the '[url=http://drupal.org/project/views_customfield] Views Custom Field[/url]' module, create a new PHP field in your view and then include the PHP code that follows...

The Facebook Social module is handy for placing Facebook like and share buttons on your content, but at the moment it doesn't have any views integration. So to include a like button field in your view, you must resort to some trickery!

First install the '[url=http://drupal.org/project/views_customfield]Views Custom Field[/url] module, this allows you to define fields whose output is computed using PHP, this is one of _the_ most useful modules ever!!

Next add a new 'Customfield: PHP code' field to your view, and paste the following code into it:

$url = url('node/'.$data->nid, array('absolute' => TRUE));

return theme('fb_social_like_widget', $url);


All things being equal, this should add a facebook like button to your view...
