How to use with [bd] Widget Framework:

Note:
  • to limit the view permission of Facebook Sidebar Block you need to edit Expression field in [bd] Widget Framework
  • it is not possible to show the Notice Block and use it with custom user fields

Enable add-on in widget (sidebar):

  2. In the Template field add this: cxf_facebook_sidebar_block
  3. In the Position field add this: forum_list
  4. In the Title field type the widget title.
