Integrate Facebook APP ID


Before you start working with the Divi Facebook module, it’s important that you integrate it with the Facebook App ID. By doing so, you’ll have the information about users’ interaction with the modules. To do that, simply go to the Divi Plus modules panel.

Facebook Share Button


The first Divi Facebook module you get with the plugin is the Share button. The following steps would help you easily insert the module on a page and then customize it according to the requirements.

Step 1: Insert the module

Create a page or edit an existing one where you want to display the Divi Facebook Share button. Then choose to Build On The Front End, so you can see the live changes you made to the module. Once the builder gets loaded, add a new row, and then insert the DP Facebook Share module.

The module has been inserted, now we can make changes to its content.

Step 2: Configure Facebook Share Button 

Upon inserting the module, the Content tab appears with Configuration and Design as the additional settings.

Let’s see what we can do with the Configuration settings.

A: Facebook Custom APP ID

We’ve already inserted the Facebook APP ID in the Integration tab of the Divi Plus modules panel. However, in some cases, you might need a different app id. Therefore, using this option, you can easily add a different Facebook APP ID without disturbing the primary one you’ve used for the integration tab.

B: Page URL

This option is to input the page URL where you’re inserting a Facebook Share button. When users share the page, it will have the page URL which they are sharing and where you want Facebook users to land on.

C: Enable Lazy Loading

To speed up the page and lower the time it takes to load the Share button, you can enable this option. Doing so, you’ll save the page from getting heavy and take time to become functional completely.

Step 3: Customize display options

After the Configuration settings, the option we get in the Content tab is the Display settings. Let’s see what we can do with it.

A: Layout Selection

The first option available in the Display setting is to select the available layout options for the Facebook Share button.

The Layout option provides 3 designs for the share button that are Button, Button Count, and Box Count.

Step 2: Configure Facebook Like button 

To make the module more functional, we need to configure it according to our website’s requirements. The below points would help you do it easily.

A: Facebook Custom APP ID

Like the Facebook Share module, the Like button can also use a custom Facebook APP ID. If you want to track user interaction on a different Facebook account, you can input the App Id.

B: Page URL

Here you need to enter the URL of the page where you’ve added the button. The Facebook Like button module also has a feature that enables you to add a Share button along with it. We’ll learn about this feature in later steps. Therefore, it’s recommended that you use the URL of the same page. So, whenever users share your page, it would use the right link.

C: Select Button Action Type

The Like button isn’t only about letting users like a page. It’s more than that. The Action Type option available in the module’s Configuration settings provides you the choice to change button type.

You can keep the Like button as a Like button or change its action type to the Recommend button. If you want people to like your webpage, then keep it on the Like button. Or if you want users to try your services and then suggest them to others, then choose the Recommended button type.

D: Enable Lazy Loading

Just like the Facebook Share module, you can apply lazy loading on Facebook Like button as well.

Step 2: Facebook Like Button Display Options

Similarly to the Facebook Share module, the option we get in the Facebook Like button’s Content tab after configuration settings is the Display settings. And it provides you with 3 options to apply on the button module: Layout, Size, and Display Share Button.

In the above screenshot, I’ve used the Divi Extended’s Facebook Page URL. Once we input the URL, the Facebook Page starts to appear, just like the below screenshot.

C: Frame Width

By default, the Facebook Page appears after inserting the URL is quite congested. For some users, it won’t fit in their website’s design. Therefore, using the Frame Width option, you can make changes to the space it covers horizontally.

You can look at the Facebook Page variation in the following screenshot.

D: Frame Height

Same as the width, you can change the default height of the Facebook Page module. Go to the Frame Height and move the slider or input the value.

The below screenshot nicely showcases Facebook Page with different heights.

E: Enable Lazy Loading

If you want that the Facebook Page content won’t slow down the webpage, you need to enable lazy loading. To do that, check Enable Lazy Loading as YES.

Step 3: Facebook Page display options

The next setting available in the Facebook Page’s Content tab is the Display options. Using this particular setting’s options, you can make changes to the content you want to display on it.

This will hide the cover picture of the Facebook Page from the website as you can see in the below comparison image.

D: Show Small Header

By default, the header of the Facebook Page is wide and contains a CTA such as Shop Now, Visit website, and other. But if you want to use a small header, then this module also provides that feature.

To display a small header all you need to do in the Display settings is that, check Display Small Header as Yes. And it will starts to show the header in compact form just like below screenshot.

E: Hide CTA (Shop Button)

By default the Facebook Page module shows CTA on the header, and if you want to hide it without using the small header, check Hide CTA as Yes.

Once you enable this option, the CTA from the Facebook Page would disappear but it will start to show a Share button. So, if you want to make it completely go, then you’ve to use the small header option.

Step 4: Design Facebook Page

We’ve explored the settings available in the Content tab of the module. Now, let’s see what extra options Design tab provides.

A: Alignment

Go to the Alignment settings in the Design tab, and choose a position from the available options. Like the other modules, there are 3 alignment options available, Left, Right, and Center.
