It just seems extreme to me when you see XC users here complaining about XC speed and at the same time they also want to add all these external widgets to site and slow it down...

The addon looks pretty good to me from standalone point of view but I still have to question what's better - faster site load which is definitely a huge plus or slower site and social media feeds which may or may not do some good...

Other than that great job QT



Thank you, Steve. There is a demo available, so each merchant can test the demo store with and without the module enabled and decide whether it affects the speed considerably or not. To my mind it does not.

In addition to that if required this widget can be enabled on certain pages only by a simple condition in a template.

Well, that's not normal for sure. I guess it all depends on how these social media connections are done. Our module doesn't add even a second to the page loading time.

What I agree with you on is that site performance definitely shouldn't be affected. Fortunately, Social Feeds works smoothly in this area.

Steve, I'm of the same opinion... just install Ghostery and Adblock :)

It's not an "old-fashioned" stance at all, quite the opposite.

In addition to page speed, I am wary of what data these companies are mining out of you, your customers and your company website.

Good news!

Extension is updated to work with 4.5.3-4.5.5 versions. More supported versions soon.

Module performance is improved. Now it takes even less time to load than reported by Mike here in this thread.

Hi. I am looking at your Social Feeds module. Can you advise if the module is responsive. Looking in your manual - i couldn't see anywhere that we can specify dimensions for the display size. We plan to use it on our categories pages, which are obviously wide in desktop mode, and narrow in smartphone view. Thanks for your help

Sorry for the delay in answering to you.

It actually uses the same CSS styles. So if you've got a responsive skin then the module's bar will be also responsive.

Thank you.

Had the FB element working, but then had my host provider instsll an SSL certificate for my site. Since then the FB feedno longer works.

This is what the module is returning:

<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/v2.3/plugins/like_box.php?app_id=106904903831&amp;channel=https %3A%2F%2Fstaticxx.facebook.com%2Fconnect%2Fxd_arbi ter.php%3Fversion%3D42%23cb%3Df9960b7c2fe63e%26dom ain%3Dwww.swishgear.com.au%26origin%3Dhttps%253A%2 52F%252Fwww.swishgear.com.au%252Ff3a058aa4b1fbe2%2 6relation%3Dparent.parent&amp;color_scheme=light&a mp;container_width=252&amp;header=true&amp;height= 500&amp;href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FSwis hGearFashionAccessories&amp;id=sf-facebook&amp;locale=en_US&amp;sdk=joey&amp;show_bo rder=false&amp;show_faces=false&amp;stream=true&am p;width=250" style="border: medium none; visibility: visible; width: 0px; height: 0px;" title="fb:like_box Facebook Social Plugin" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="true" allowtransparency="true" name="f32229e6577434" frameborder="0" height="500px" width="250px"></iframe>

Would the output of this module be affected by the use of an SSL certificate?
