Can't find a Facebook pixel extension for Jooma 2.5

Post by mamboze » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:59 am

Hi,

I've been trying to find a Facebook pixel extension for a Joomla 2.5 website. The only one I've been able to find is for Joomla 3.x. I suppose that this can't be used with J2.5. Any comments or suggestions would be most welcome. TIA

As I understand it, using FB pixels on particular pages of a website is a pretty standard online marketing procedure. Also, there is a J3.5 extension which does exactly that. I am seeking info about whether there is an equivalent extension (or similar) for J2.5. The website I'm working on is, indeed, a J2.5 CMS website. I'm happy to give the URL if needed. It is unclear to me how the "spam" reference fits in here.

I think if you have found the suitable extension for Joomla 3.x then you really need to update your site to 3.x (that is, 3.9.4) then use the extension you did find.

Using out of date software is working against you as you can see, from the lack of extensions available, plus v2.5 is not maintained, and support ended for it in December 2014.
