Social Wall

This feature will allow you to create a place in your app where your users will be able to interact each other.

Since this feature is highly customizable, you can use it as a simple wall of news or as an advanced “facebook-like” feature.

Note: The translation file is called “Fanwall”.

Click on   the “Add Pages” section to add the feature to your app:

  • Map: Display a map of all news/posts.
  • Gallery: Display all images posted in a gallery.
