Facebook Like Box - Fortuna


Some days ago the Facebook Like Box widget included in Fortuna theme stopped working.

There was a change on the Facebook end. But the problem it’s easy to fix.

How to fix the issue?

If you want to make the updates for yourself let me explain.

1 First, add a container <div class="fb-container"> to the current box on catalog/view/theme/fortuna/template/common/footer.tpl and make sure to insert https://www.facebook.com/ to the href attribute,

<div class="fb-container">
<div id="bg-box" class="fb-like-box" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/<?php echo $this->config->get('fortuna_facebook_id'); ?>" data-width="290" data-height="180" data-color-scheme="light" data-show-faces="true" data-border-color="#FFF" data-stream="false" data-header="false"></div>

2 Then, the CSS to hide the border (catalog/view/theme/fortuna/stylesheet/stylesheet.css):

.fb-container {
width: 288px;
height: 178px;
overflow: hidden;
margin: 0 auto;
.fb-container > div {
margin: -1px 0px 0px -1px;

3 Delete the references to Facebook frame at the bottom of the same file.

/* This element holds injected scripts inside iframes that in some cases may stretch layouts. So, we're just hiding it. */
#fb-root {
display: none;
/* To fill the container and nothing else */
.fb_iframe_widget, .fb_iframe_widget span, .fb_iframe_widget span iframe[style] {
width: 100% !important;

4 Also, you need to change the Facebook ID on Fortuna theme options module for the url ending. For example, if the page is www.facebook.com/everthemes, you need:

    Great tutorial!

    However, specially for the dummies, could you explain where exactly (e.g. “line 52”, “line 250”) should be inserted the infos in steps 1 and 2?

    • Hi, the line has changed on different versions of the file for that reason I didn’t write the line number. In Fortuna 1.2.0 it’s on line 68, find this code class=”fb-like-box” and replace the entire DIV with the new code provided.

      You can add the CSS code from the Step 2 to the bottom of the file.

        Thank you so much for your patience. Step 3 was easy with your help.
        Is there a solution for step 2 in Fortuna 1.0.2? There’s not a code class=”fb-like-box” there; which line would that be?
