    Does your sharing plugin maintain share counts from previous plugins?

    Hi, the plugin uses the social networks api, for example if you have a page that was shared on facebook 32 times facebook saved those records and makes them available in form of an api. We take those informations from the api and display it on your website. So the answer is yes, we get the social signals from source, it should show same as your previous plugins. Thank you

    Hi, as I stated before, the plugin takes social signals from the actual social networks. Please send a link so we can see what are the links you have previous shares and now are not showing, also you can test if you have social signals for a link to our website share.cunjo.com if the search result there is different from the one you see on your buttons it means that the counter class is not retrieving the correct url. Also, are you sure your previous plugin was actually sharing the content on social networks or only saved clicks to share on your database. Usually the way scripts that save shares in your database work is that when someone clicks on share icon the script saves the request in your database, but the script has no ideea if after that the user submited the share/shared tweeted or he just closed the window after he clicked on icon.

    I just checked cunjo, and yes, it is getting clicks. (But it doesn't show any from Google?) And yes, I'm sure that the previous one (still installed on the page) is recording the real thing, because it originally picked up the same numbers that existed on the previous sharing tool. I've also noticed that the count can decrease if someone removes a share on Facebook.

    Hi, can you post a link here with your website and active !Share buttons so I can see if there is any issue with it? If not pm me on support@cunjo.com. Thank you

    It's at the bottom of the article. Notice that it does pick up the count from Google Plus, but doesn't add it into the total count. And it doesn't pick up any of the others unless they're new since late yesterday.

    Hi, what you have on the bottom of your post is not our plugin, thats ShareThis plugin, our plugin is !Share by Cunjo.

    That would explain things! I am so sorry!

    Does yours show counts?

    Okay, I have downloaded yours (on the Cunjo site), and set it up to do the nonfloating type - bottom of page. All went fine until it was done. It displayed badly. The icons were vertical, they were very far apart, and they didn't display right, either. I've disabled it for now.

    Does this mean there's a conflict with something? If so, do you have any idea what it would be?

    P.S. If we can get this working, I'm going to be hyped. It's the best looking social sharing tool I've seen - and it most certainly does pick up pre-existing counts.

    Can you activate the plugin again for a second so i can see what's wrong? Thanks.

    Just so you know, I've just set up the floating bar to display vertically - and it works fine.

    Ok, i've seen this error to another user, but i can't seem to be able to replicate it although I have tested the buttons on over 30 themes. For some reason wp formats the icons, wraps them up in p tags and duplicates them. This is an issue with some themes or text formatting plugins it seems. Can you pm me on support@cunjo.com with the theme that you use so i can try to replicate this error and solve this major issue. Thank you

    I had a feeling that would be the problem. It's got to be a conflict in CSS coding.

    The theme is Volt, purchased from Themeforest. I've had conflict problems with this theme and plugins before. This is the first time I want to stick it out to be able to use it. (Other share plugins seem not to work well with it, either, by the way, though some do.)

    I can use your plugin the horizontal static position, though I don't think it's displaying as nicely as it should - but it's not bad.

    Thank you for taking the approach you are - nice and professional.

    We will definitely test the widget on Volt and fix it (if other can, we can to). But that will be in future releases since right now were focused on rolling out the Analytics features for !Share.

    I can offer you another solution. Head to share.cunjo.com on the right side box (Get the widget!) click on Embedded Version, on first step select Website option and go trough the steps to create your inline buttons, at the end, on the right hand side form insert your !Share ID and hit generate code. Copy the generated code, head to your wp installation, Appearence > Editor, on the right side select for example content.php, find <?php the_content();?> and after or before paste the copied code (depending if you want to show icons above or under content), do this to all post types files you want to show the widget on, ie content-page.php, content-mycustom.php (the structure of these files depend on the theme). See if that works. The down side with embedded version is that you can only use one widget per page, meaning you cannot use inline and bar in the same time, also you can not use inline twice in a page.

    Thank you for using !Share, we will let you know when we will have that issue fixed.

    It's a matter of time. I am Gaia Health - researcher, writer, graphics, site designer, marketer (such as that is), fire-putter-outer, and chief bottle washer. Working through that is one more thing ... and one more thing is too much right now.

    I'll wait until it's fixed - or the day comes when I can have someone else do a redesign with a better theme.

    Thanks for giving it a go. I do understand about the priority. This is a fix for a client with a problem not of your making. It's not where you need to put your efforts right now.

    Hi again, we had some few bug reports about visual errors with some themes and plugins that are formatting the_content so we decided to make the fix a priority. We released version 1.5.1 This update fixes/prevents scripts on formatting the inline buttons. We also thoroughly tested it with your theme Volt and now its shows flawlessly. The main issue was that scripts were detecting where the_title function was used and wrapping them in span tags. We also took protection measurements against scripts adding break, p tags and other filtering.
    here's a link with volt theme and !Share inline icons enabled: http://reviews.whizzin.co.uk/money/demo-post-5-2/
    Give it a try and let me know if it works for you know.

    Again, thank you for pointing this out to us. Cheers.
