    The JA Social Feed Plug-in imports content automatically from popular Social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Vimeo, Instegram, …) and adds to the Joomla or K2 category as articles.

    I. Installation

    Note: After you install successfully, please make sure curl library is installed and enabled in your server so that the plugin will work properly.

    II. Configuration

    For each social engine, you can create unlimited profiles to pull content.

    Click on the “New” button to create new profile then setting for the profile to pull content.

    3. Verify

    This is an important feature, you should verify to check the input value is valid or not.

    4. Configuration

    The settings of the 2 social engines are the same so I will just show the settings of Facebook, you can do the same for Twitter.

    General Settings

    The setting allows you to enable or disable the profile then add Facebook ID / Twitter search.

    Article Settings

    When content of social engines is pulled, it is saved as joomla or k2 article.

    • Author: select the user that will be the author of the pulled content when saved as article in your site.
    • Target Component: select content type of the pulled content: Joomla content or K2 content
    • Category: select the category where the pulled content belongs to.
    • Title Type: select option to use as article tile.
    • Source Text: the text for original link to post on the item page.

    Note: This part is the same for all social engines setting so we will mention this part in this section only.

    Advanced Settings

    For these setting parameters, you are allowed to save images to your host or not. You can select to display image in the item or not and select which images can be displayed based on on image size.

    • Update Article: if Yes, existing articles will be updated (when you pull content) when it’s source content is updated.
    • Use Image: if Yes, the plugin will automatically extract image from the URL that user shared in facebook/twitter then add the image into article for displaying. Otherwise, it will import text only.
    • Minimum Image Width/Height: images that has size less than the defined size here will not be imported. Depend on your content displaying, you can define which size is better.
    • Import Limit: set the limit of items to be imported per profile each pulling time. This is the new items, not updated items .

    • Use old embed code: There are two styles of embed codes that are available for Vimeo videos. The new embed code begins with “<iframe…” and supports both Flash and HTML5 video. The older style of embed code begins with “<object…” and only support Flash playback.Some services only support the older “<object…” embeds.
