It is possible to integrate Facebook into your WebHelp Classic output and the widget will appear in the footer sections of your WebHelp page.

Using Oxygen XML Editor/Author

To add a Facebook Like widget to your WebHelp output using a transformation scenario from within Oxygen XML Editor/Author, follow this procedure:
  1. Go to the Facebook Developers website.
  2. Fill-in the displayed form, then click the Get Code button.
  3. Copy the two code snippets and paste them into a <div> element inside an XML file called facebook-widget.xml. Make sure you follow these rules:
    • The file must be well-formed.
    • The code for each <script> element must be included in an XML comment.
    • The start and end tags for the XML comment must be on a separate line.

      The content of the XML file should look like this:
      <div id="facebook">
          <div id="fb-root"/>
          <script>
              <!-- 
                  (function(d, s, id) {
              var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
              if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
              js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
              js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.0";
              fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
              }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); 
              -->
          </script>
          <div class="fb-like" data-layout="standard" data-action="like"
              data-show-faces="true" data-share="true"/>
      </div>
  4. In Oxygen XML Editor/Author, click the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) action from the toolbar.
  5. Select an existing WebHelp Classic transformation scenario (depending on your needs, it may be with or without feedback) and click the Duplicate button to open the Edit Scenario dialog box.
  6. Switch to the Parameters tab and edit the webhelp.footer.file parameter to reference the facebook-widget.xml file that you created earlier.
  7. Click Ok and run the transformation scenario.

Using a Script Outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author

Important: Running WebHelp transformations from a script outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author requires an additional license and some additional setup:
To add a Facebook Like widget to your WebHelp output using a script outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author, follow this procedure:
  1. Go to the Facebook Developers website.
  2. Fill-in the displayed form, then click the Get Code button.
  3. Copy the two code snippets and paste them into a <div> element inside an XML file called facebook-widget.xml. Make sure you follow these rules:
    • The file must be well-formed.
    • The code for each <script> element must be included in an XML comment.
    • The start and end tags for the XML comment must be on a separate line.

      The content of the XML file should look like this:
      <div id="facebook">
          <div id="fb-root"/>
          <script>
              <!-- 
                  (function(d, s, id) {
              var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
              if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
              js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
              js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.0";
              fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
              }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); 
              -->
          </script>
          <div class="fb-like" data-layout="standard" data-action="like"
              data-show-faces="true" data-share="true"/>
      </div>
  4. Use the webhelp.footer.file parameter in your transformation script and set its value to reference the facebook-widget.xml file that you created earlier.
  5. Execute the transformation script.
