Embeding a Social-ID

Once you get your numeric ID, use the syntax below to include it within content

[social_id id=17]

Or this syntax to include it within your PHP code


Embeding a group

You can embed your Social-ID group by knowing it’s URL name. You can tell this by looking at the group’s URL. For example, for the group , the URL name is coffeebean.

Once you know the URL name, use the syntax below to include it within content

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean]

Or this sytnax to include it within your PHP code


Changing width and height

You can choose from three different layouts by using the syntax below

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean size=normal]

The possible values are:

small: Shows the title and pictures only.

normal: Shows group image and description with people pictures.

large: Shows group image, description and a badge for each person.

Customizing the look

You can use several parameters to choose how your embed will look like. They are

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean header=no]
This will hide the header with the group image and description

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean join_button=no]
If the group is open this will hide the Join button that would normally show

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean join_button_position=middle]
If the group is open and the Join Button is showing, this parameter will define where the button goes. The possible values are: top, middle, bottom.

[social_id_group group_url=coffeebean pictures=no]
Hides all the pictures, leaving only the header and group image
