Facebook Live Properties

The Facebook Live Component has the following properties:

  • Component Id - Sets the name of the Facebook Live Component in the app. The Component Id can be referenced using JavaScript to add more functionality to the app as needed.

    Pro Tip: It is a best practice to use only letters without spaces for the Component Id. Symbols, spaces, and numbers are not recommended.
  • Facebook Live or VIdeo Url - Enter the Facebook Live web address as it appears in a browser.
  • Display Full Post - Toggles on or off whether the video's accompanying Facebook Post appears in the Facebook Live Component.

Facebook Live Placement Settings

The Placement Settings for the Component sets which column(s) the Component will appear. Each Page of the app can have a different number of columns that are set in the Layout section of the Page Settings. The following Placement settings are available for this Component:

  • Column Start - Sets the column where the Component will start. 
  • Column Span - Sets how many columns the Component will span. 
  • Pro Tip: The Facebook Live Component will appear best on mobile devices when it is set to span all columns of a page. Placing multiple Facebook Live Components next to one another can cause them to overlap on smaller screen sizes.
  • Padding - Sets how much space will appear on the top, bottom, left, and right of the Component. When building a Page with multiple Components, the Padding will determine the overall spacing between Components.
  • Display Mode - Sets how the Component is displayed. If Both is selected, the Component will always show. Both are the default option. If Optimal is selected, the Component will only show if the browser supports the app. The main supported browsers are Chrome and Safari. If Degraded is selected, the Component will only show if the browser does not support the app. The main unsupported browser is Internet Explorer.
