    Default Facebook social media plugin at top of header

    I am using a custom template but I don't think that matters. On the /includes/templates/mytemplate/common/tpl_header.php I am trying to add the FB social media coding.

    Here it is

    <iframe src="blah blah blah code"></iframe>

    Can someone help me. The problem is that it is not centered above the logo. I thought using <center></center> would help but it did not. It still places the iframe to the left.

    Please see attached.

    Your code is now in the "body" area... not in the template's "header" area.

    You should create a DIV block and add the code inside the DIV. Then use CSS to set the width/height of the DIV... width should be the same as the width of your custom template design, and set the left and right margin to auto (this will center the DIV)

    By the way, isn't it better to add the Facebook Like Box in a sidebox? Use any of the built-in banner sideboxes. This is easier to manage in the admin.

    Can you show me how? I assume create a DIV in the header file for placement. And then the settings in stylesheet.css. But that is as far as I can get with it as I do not know much.

    Also I do not use the side box because that is all it is. A link nothing more. The one I use up on top shows the peoples faces and a like button. Much more interesting since if you're logged in FB itll show people that are your friends already or close to you.

    Uh, no, if you put one in the banner sidebox, it's the WHOLE Facebook Like/Fan box, with the like button, faces, news stream, header etc. Because you paste the whole Facebook iframe code (HTML code) for the banner, not image.

    A banner sidebox can be HTML or image... so you put in HTML instead of image.

    You paste EXACTLY the same iframe code into the banner sidebbox that you are now having on the tpl_header.php file.

    If you still want to put it in the header. Instead of using the "center" tag, use this in your file and put in any location that suits you:

    <div id="facebookbox">YOUR FACEBOOK CODE</div>


    Then in the stylesheet.css file, add this:

    #facebookbox {
    width: 960px;
    height: UP-TO-YOU;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    }
