Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] Fan Box width issue (5 posts)

    Hi Otto,

    I noticed the Facebook Fan Box widget does not respect the width I'm trying to limit it to. So I tried adding a 'stand-alone' Like Box via https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/ and I found that the HTML5 version suffers the same issue. So I suppose it is not a bug in Simple Facebook Connect but rather a Facebook script related issue.

    Maybe it'd be better to remove the width option from the widget completely? Or does it serve some purpose still?

    The width works, but FB has a minimum width that they enforce on their end. Seems they raised the minimum recently too. Nothing I can do about that.

    According to this, the minimum is now 292 pixels:

    That minimum width kind of sucks for most sidebars, I suppose. Too bad there is nothing that can be done about it.

    Ah well... I'll have to use the iframe code then ;)
