WP Social Invitations
[resolved] blank icons on localhost (17 posts)

    Just to test, I installed this version on my localhost and added the shortcode to a widget.

    For some reason, the social icons show as blank squares so something is a little weird. Any ideas?

    Also in your Changelog, you have noted in previous version about having added Custom CSS as well as Facebook and Twitter yet none of those 3 features are present in this plugin so that's both disappointing and a little deceptive for new people getting an idea of functionality.

    Hi Martin!

    Sorry about the changelog, the one included is from the PRO version.
    Regarding your other post the main differences with PRO version is that PRO version includes everything you see in http://timersys.com/wordpress-plugins/wordpress-social-invitations/ (more providers, free support, more features, etc)

    Regarding your issue in localhost i will need more info to help you out. Do you know how to use firefox firebug or Chrome developer tools? With those tools you can check console errors of your site. If you don't see the images its like some stylesheet is missing.

    Did you changed the plugin folder name? The folder needs to be called plugins/wp-social-invitations/ in order to work properly

    Oh right so this Repo version doesn't hook into BuddyPress and the Invite Anyone plugin?

    Nor does it have the ability to style this huge ugly looking icon buttons? :)

    And this Repo version doesn't provide Facebook or Twitter invites either?

    I didn't see any Console errors with Firebug.
    I installed this plugin via the normal WP Admin 'Add New' interface so I presume the directory is as it should be.

    I do notice that your permalink ends with a backslash where as mine doesn't. I did resave Permalinks but the same problem is evident.

    Anyways, I'm not sure I'll continue to debug this since it doesn't have the functionality I thought it had, to begin with. Looks promising though so good effort.

    I've also installed it on a low traffic site - http://www.cooney.com.au/social-roi-do-you-know-what-it-really-is
    You can see the default widget at the bottom of the widget area.

    [1] Nothing works
    [2] The Admin Settings has no listing and only way to get to them is via the settings link on the plugin page
    [3] The links on where to get the ID / Secret Key don't work
    [4] Icons, by default, look real crap, too big and hidden by the label text
    No idea what other people have done to get this plugin to work but it hasn't done on 2 sites for me so there's certainly something common that is amiss.

    Hi Martin you are right, there is a big bug im fixing right now that is preventing to work.

    Also for your sidebar i would recommend to tweak CSS as the big widget is not indented to be used there, as you said is very big to display there. But you can simple tweak it with css to display only icons for example.

    I will release an update as soon as possible. If you want to share your email i can send last dev version to you for testing

    To tweak the sidebar

    .service-filter-name-container {
    display: none;
    }
    .service-filters li {
    background: none;
    border: none;
    width: 49px;
    height: auto;
    }
    .service-filters li a {
    display: block;
    position: relative;
    z-index: 2;
    padding: 45px 0 0 0px !important;
    width: 42px;
    }
    .service-filters li:hover, .service-filters li.selected, .service-filters li.completed {
    border: none;
    box-shadow: none;
    opacity: 0.8;
    }
    .service-filters {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
    border: none;
    }
    .service-filters li a {
    border: none !important;
    }

    I forgot

    .service-filters li.completed {
    background: none;
    }

    Just tested the dev version on a fresh new site and it worked. I will release it to public

    Yeah cool - that new version seems to be better though I need to work out the configurations now.
    The CSS you gave above is way better for the widget too.

    You can email me at martin at cooney dot com dot au - I've many beta testing for many pro plugins such as CommentLuv (and one other of Andy Baileys plugin) and a few others. I like to get stuff working and looking good :)

    Well, since the 'Where do I get this info' setup links do a 404, the configs for those 2 are wrong

    Can you be more specific? Which link give you error? I just tried on a fresh install and it worked.

    I can share with you the docs of my demo site in http://www.timersys.com/demos/buddypress/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-social-invitations/docs/index.html#google

    But i would like to know why is not working for you

    I think I've found it for you.
    The error is both in your docs as well as (presumably) the setup links.

    I discovered your docs were wrong when it came to configuring the redirect URI.

    Notice below the install directory is wp-social-invitations whereas your docs tell me wordpress-social-invitations. This is a vanilla install done from the WP Admin too

    The Redirect URI that works is http://www.cooney.com.au/wp-content/plugins/wp-social-invitations/hybridauth/?hauth.done=google

    I see, that's a typo migrating from the pro version wich uses wordpress-social-invitations folder instead of wp-social-invitations

    I will fix that right now. Thanks again!

    That's ok - my debugging charge is a copy of the Pro version hahaha
    Why have different directories though? Won't that be a pain in the donkey to maintain, over time?

    Anyway, your choice Damian
