Facebook Fan Box Cache
[resolved] Just using this to display the fan photos (2 posts)

    Hi, I like this plugin. The one thing I don't like, though, is that potential fans can't click "Like" from my blog within the box. I got to thinking...what if I used this to display the photos of the people (which I believe helps drive Likes, as people see that their friends Like my page), but not the "Like" area. I could theoretically put the FB "Like" box (without the photos) right on top of it.

    Theoretically, this would look the same as the regular FB "Like Box", but use your method for caching the images, correct?

    Would this, in effect, be the same as using the FB Like Box, but speed page load time up?

    Thanks!

    Well, this plugin removes all the extra css and js that is required to load the FB Like Box, and then caches that so it's super fast. Removing the *like* feature was a consequence of this.

    So many people are requesting this feature, I think I have to include it in the next update. I'll see what I can do.

    To answer your question, yes - using this in tandem with the FB Like Box should speed up the site since it doesn't need to load the user images, but not by much since you still loads in the JS files.
