    Facebook Like Box: Use like status in condition

    Asked by mhakopyan on June 06, 2017 at 11:11 AM

    I'm trying to get this to work as well but no matter what condition I use, the form doesn't see the FB widget changes (ie: when someone clicks on the Like button).

    Unfortunately, I'm afraid it is not possible to use that field in conditions anymore.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, there is no other way. 

    I will forward this thread to our backend team for a possible implementation of such feature.

    We'll inform you about the possibility of such implementation through this thread.

    Thank you!

    Hi, afaik. This is possible on the widget. Maybe there was a glitch. But anyway I made some improvements with it. There's only downside on this one. Since this is a basic widget and does not result to any advance functionalities that facebook can provide. Already like pages can't be detected. So a user must unlike the page first then like it to re-trigger the condition.

    Regards,
    Widget Team
