Short Codes

Add keywords search for Facebook posts and comments on your website:

[socialsql_pagesearch pageid="your page ID" limit ="10"]

  1. Add this shortcode [socialsql_pagesearch pageid="your page ID"] to your post or page where you want to include the search feature.
  2. You can optionally supply a limit argument in the shortcode (e.g. [socialsql_pagesearch pageid="your page ID" limit ="10"]) to limit the search result.
  3. You will see the search field with your Facebook page name.
  4. You can search all posts with the symbol asterisk (*) or specific keywords.

Generate custom Facebook search results on your website:

[socialsql_keywordposts pageid="your page ID" keyword="any keyword" width="200" limit="5"]

Use this shortcode when you want to show specific posts from your Facebook related to the website content. You can show product-related Facebook posts or reviews on your product page. Or you can show the post content based on a category on your website, such as listing all production videos posted on Facebook on your website.

  1. Add this shortcode [socialsql_keywordposts pageid="your page ID" keyword="any keywords"] to your post or page where you want to display the search results with certain keywords. Eg. [socialsql_keywordposts pageid="your page ID" keyword="review"]
  2. The value of the width argument is optional. It is the width of a Facebook-embedded post. The default is 500, or you can set it to any value. Eg. [socialsql_keywordposts pageid="your page ID" keyword="* or any keyword" width="200"]
  3. You can also optionally supply a limit argument in the shortcode to limit the search result. Eg. [socialsql_keywordposts pageid="your page ID" keyword="* or any keyword" limit="5"]

The image below is an example where our client listed the Facebook posts with the keyword "ida-8". The shortcode used is [socialsql_keywordposts pageid="1618813335063479" keyword="ida-8" width="500" limit="4"]
