Add Appearance tab for Facebook Feed

I was quite surprised to find out there is no ‘appearance’ setting for this widget. We use the social feed widget for another client and there many things can be changed. Please implement a similar option for this widget, as the current design does not necessarily fit in with the website the widget is added to.


Hi there @Draxeiro :wave:

Thanks a million for adding your idea!

I couldn’t agree more that the Appearance is something our widget really needs! We’ll try our best to consider this opportunity in the future enhancements.

I’ll update you here in case of any news :slightly_smiling_face:

When would you expect this feature to be included? Compared to other solutions elsewhere this feed works well but the fact that hardly anything can be changed in appearance and functionality (once again see your social feed widget where this is included) makes it a less than ideal solution to use.

Hi @Draxeiro :wave:

I am afraid, it’s really hard to give any specific timeline for this feature, I am so sorry :pensive:

Since we receive a lot of requests and the process of developing new functionalities is quite challenging, we have to choose requests based on the number of votes.

If this request is going to gain ground, we’ll try our best to speed up its implementation. We’ll keep you posted here!

As for now, our devs would be happy to customize the widget for you. Just describe your use case and share a link to the page where your widget is installed. We’ll be delighted to assist :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Max,

Apologies for the belated reply. While I understand the choice for developing functionality based on votes on request this should not apply to all cases. Take this this particular widget for instance, clearly it is not as current as your social feed widget or the instagram feed and in need of an update.

If you keep waiting for someone to vote for a particular bit of functionality (while the votes are all over the place) it may not ever happen. Plus it will also make the widget less interesting for new clients as it offers very few options and is not on par with its similar sister-widgets.

Having said that, it is very kind that you are willing to do some customization. Here’s the link:

We’d like to get rid of the grey background with the round corners, so that the feed fully integrates into this website. But as the the message blocks are currently white they won’t show up any more. Giving them a light-grey color instead of white would fix that. Als the ‘share button’ (currently also white) would need to be changed then. I’d like to suggest the hot pink spot-colour used in the title.

Best regards,

Hi @Draxeiro :wave:

Yeah, your ideas sound reasonable! I’ve drawn our dev’s team attention to this request, and I hope they will find it possible to include it in one of the near updates :slightly_smiling_face:

  1. To change the widget’s border radius, please try to use this solution

  2. If you want to remove the borders and make the background transparent, this code should do the trick for you

  3. These CSS codes will help you change the widget’s background color and the background color of all posts

  4. Use this code to change the color of the Share button:

:root {
  --share-button-background: #e46ece;
.eapps-facebook-feed-posts-item-footer-share {
  background-color: var(--share-button-background) !important;

Check it out and let me know if it helped :wink:

Hello Max,

Thank you for the CSS snippets, all worked except one:

–share-button-text: #000000;

The text colour of the button did not change, also not when I added the var for this below in a similar way as you did for the background.

However, this did the trick:

color: #fff;
