I've got Orchard 1.8.1 installed and I'm trying to find a way to do the following:
1) Add a Facebook Share button to the Blog Posts. I can't seem to find a Module for this.
2) Add a way that when I add a new Blog entry it auto posts to my Facebook fan page. Again, can't seem to find a module for this.

Any pointers? I'm not really interested in writing my own module(s) so built in solutions preferred. I'm trying to see if Orchard is "ready for primetime" enough for my needs.

Thanks
Developer

Yes. I've tried all the Facebook modules I could find (or get to even work). Most only show you a FB page in a DIV. I have found nothing that adds a SHARE button.

There are a couple of addthis modules, if it's suitable for you. However, I'm mot sure if they are up to date and work with 1.8.

AddThis wasn't really an option I was looking at. Native Facebook was my hope.
