Facebook Connect Plugin for eCommerce Use

eCom Success Academy Reveals The New Features of the Facebook Connect Plugin

We welcome Facebook’s ability to shine a light on the value of connecting blog comments to Facebook Connect for eCommerce use. Of course, JS-Kit comments has had Facebook Connect login for some time now. We also feature OpenID and a commitment to Google Friend Connect, MySpaceID, Yahoo! and other eCommerce plugins for Shopify.

Widgets like these from Facebook will be useful to popularize the idea of connecting sites and blogs to the rest of the social web. Once users get the idea, however, they will need a solution that allows multiple login options (Myspace has 80m users, Yahoo has 500m for example), sharing updates with multiple sites (Twitter, Friendfeed, Facebook, Yahoo etc), rich threading and moderation features, look and feel customizations and behavioral options that turn a simple feature into a fully customized social experience for their participants. Just check out the feature grid over on our wiki.

A key requirement for publishers, also, is that their commenting system (or any widgets they plan to use on their site for that matter) do not siphon traffic back to any given destination site. That’s why JS-Kit does not, and will never, maintain its own destination community. Instead, our visitor profiles lead to JavaScript popups that show a user’s information on the publisher’s page. Information that is not just from Facebook, but gathered from all the social platforms in which they participate in the eCom success academy program by Adrian Morrison.

As I posted on the DataPortability blog recently, the key for the emerging social web is a peered, open approach where the tools allow users to control their data and vendors to participate as equals on the grid. (source: eCom success academy review)

We believe that the web is a heterogeneous environment and that a multi-platform approach that includes all of the major players (Google, FaceBook, Yahoo!, MySpace, OpenID and others yet to emerge) is in the best interest of publishers by providing solutions that cater to all participants – leaving them free to choose the social experiences they enjoy inside the new eCom success academy bonus package.

A Guide to Customize Echo Colors and Fonts For Your eCommerce Store

JS-Kit Echo Software for eCommerce Shops

Using CSS to customize fonts and colors Of Your eCommerce Store

To modify the color and font scheme of Echo, please place this in your HTML and modify the color and font values as needed (please note that such changes do not affect external pop-ups, ‘Display mode’->’In Browser Window’ – you will need to use internal pop-ups to be able to customise the appearance, ‘Display mode’->’In Layer Popup’).

To learn where to put this code, please refer below to ‘CSS Placement’:
<style type=”text/css”>
/* Js-Kit Echo theme */
/* colors */

.js-singleCommentBg { background-color:#FFFFFF; } /* changes the bg color of each item */
.jsk-PrimaryBackgroundColor { background-color: #FFFFFF; } /* changes the primary foundation color */
.jsk-SecondaryBackgroundColor { background-color: #f4f4f4; } /* changes the comment form background */
.jsk-PrimaryHighlightColor { color: #fffea9 } /* not currently used */
.jsk-SecondaryHighlightColor { color: #ffff00 } /* not currently used */
.jsk-PrimaryFontColor { color: #3a3a3a; } /* the color of all primary text elements */
.jsk-SecondaryFontColor { color: #c6c6c6; } /* the color of all secondary text elements */
.jsk-ThreadWrapper a, .jsk-LinkColor { color: #476cb8 }  /* the color of the Echo Stream background */
.jsk-H1Color { color: #878487; } /* the color of the 1st level headers */
.jsk-MenuContainer { background-color: ##FFFFFF; }    /* the color of the ‘Add another site’ drop-down menu */
/* fonts */

.jsk-PrimaryFont, .jsk-CommentFormSurface input { font-family: Lucida grande, Tahoma, Verdana, Arial; }
.jsk-PrimaryFont { font-size: 8pt; font-weight: normal; }
.jsk-H1Font { font-size: 1.38em; font-weight: bold; line-height: 1.4em; }
.jsk-LinkFont, .jsk-ThreadWrapper a, .jsk-ThreadWrapper a:hover { text-decoration: none; font-weight: normal; }
</style>

CSS Placement

Self-hosted WordPress Business Websites

If you run Echo on your self-hosted WordPress site (you installed the Echo plugin for WordPress), then add the CSS <style>…</section> at the end of the file “single.php” (design > theme editor > single post). Advanced customization

Blogger Websites

If you run Echo on your Blogger site (you installed the Echo Plugin for Blogger), then go to the layout view, click “edit” in the “JS-Kit Comments” module, add the CSS <style>…</section> in the window that pops up (right after “<!– JS-Kit Comments –>”). Then “view” your blog (comments don’t seem to be visible in the “preview” mode of Blogger)

Other Sites For Your Online Business

If you run your own site and have access to the page where you have installed the Echo script, then add the CSS <style>…</style> code AFTER the Echo <script> code.

Advanced Tips and Tricks

Found a cool way of modifying Echo? Add it here for the community to see!
The best tool for such purposes is the FireBug add-on of the FireFox browser (http://getfirebug.com/), it gives you the ability to analyse each area of any page. So just check which class is used for any desired area and then add styles definitions to the page html source.
Note: These are unsupported modifications contributed by the community
Basically, there is no central CSS style sheet file for JS-Kit/Echo.  Rather, the CSS is injected into the HTML file via javascript by calling JSKitLib.addCss().  Specifying CSS for any of these objects will control page display, including “display: none”, which is used extensively below:

 

/* sizes */
.js-CommentsArea { width: 400px; }
/* suppress item display */
.jsk-HeaderWrapper { display: none; }  /* no comment header */
.jsk-ItemUserAvatar { display: none; } /* no avatar */
.jsk-ItemBody { margin-left: -48px; } /* compensate for removed avatar */
.js-kit-avatars-wrapper { display: none; } /* no default avatar for non-logged-in user*/
.js-kit-nonLoggedUserInfo { margin-left: -75px; } /* compensate for removed default avatar */
.js-singleViaLinkWrapper { display: none; }  /* no “Comment via” */
.js-CommentsSkin-echo div.jsk-ThreadWrapper { padding: 0px; }  /* no whitespace above “Leave a Comment” */
/* Use ‘!important’ to override inline style */
.js-singleCommentAdminStar { display: none !important; } /* no administrator star */
/* layout */

.js-singleCommentName { margin-right: 1em; } /* add space after commenter name */
.js-kit-miniProfile { background-color:#FFFFFF; } /* the color of the mini profile popup */
.jskit-MenuContainer { background-color:#FFFFFF; } /* the background color of pulldown menus */
.jskit-MenuItemMO { background-color: #EDEDED; } /* the color of pulldown menu items */
/* Hide the Leave a Comment Form */

.jsk-CommentFormButton { display: none; }
.js-singleCommentReplyable { display: none; }
.jsk-CommentFormSurface { display: none; }
/* Hide the Follow tab */
.js-kit-tab-follow { display: none; }

/* /Changing buttons fonts */

“1.25em” value here is the example of font size, change it to the one you need and add the other attributes to the class if needed.  Hiding avatars

/* Hiding avatar from forms for entering new comments */
/* hide avatar from the form for inputting new comments*/
.js-kit-miniProfile-avatar,.js-kit-avatars-wrapper {
display: none;
}

.js-kit-miniProfileDataWrap {
margin-left: 0px !important;
}
.js-kit-nonLoggedUserInfo {

margin-left: -75px;

}
/* /Hiding avatar from forms for entering new comments */
