Installation

The Social Feed module is very similar to other Drupal modules which require Libraries and X Autoload Module to use for the 3rd party code integration. Hence, for installation of the Social Feed module please follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Download and install the Libraries Module - 2.x and after the module installation create a new folder called libraries under your sites/all/ folder. (Creating this folder will help us to locate our 3rd party code integration.)
  • Download and install the X Autoload Module
  • Install as usual, see https://www.drupal.org/node/1294804 for further information.
  • For Facebook, download the compressed version of Facebook PHP SDK 4 and extract the files into sites/all/libraries/facebook/
  • For Twitter, download the compressed version of Twitter API PHP and extract the files into sites/all/libraries/twitter/
  • For Instagram, download the compressed version of Instagram-PHP-API and extract the files into sites/all/libraries/instagram/
  • Now, in your sites/all/modules/ directory download the Social Feed module using GIT clone code git clone --branch 7.x-1.x http://git.drupal.org/sandbox/HemangiGokhale/2442061.git.
  • Enable the Social Feed module.

Configuration

After enabling it, please check your admin/reports/status where there should be some new options:

  • For using Facebook: PHP SDK for Facebook APIs v4.0.16 installed

This module has menu or modifiable settings. There is configuration link for this which you can access at admin/config/services/socialfeed.
