Jamie Social Icons

    I'm trying to get Jamie Social icons to automatically show in my sites micro job posts. I've read on your site where you said "add the code below into the template where you would like the social icons to be displayed". Developer for the Pricerr theme, I'm utilizing for my site, recommended I post the php code in job.php

    I don't exactly know where to post the code so it will appear in each authors or users micro job post automatically without them needing to remember to post the Jamie Social icon shortcode in their gigs when they create them. Where do I add my social account ID's so the Likes, Tweets, +1's, pins and Linkedin shares are posted to my site's social media accounts? Do I need a separate WP plugin accomplish this? Thanks.

    Hi Kismayo
    Thanks for downloadinIg my plugin, apologies my instructions on my website did not make sense, I had sloppy fingers while typing that day.
    I am not familiar with Pricerr theme but can you see something that resembles <?php the_content();?> within the job.php template? This displays the content of the post so if you place <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?> before or after it is will display accordingly. As it is a job site all the data may not come from the content you may have different fields for salary, location etc. so you at find that the social icons display in the middle of the job description, if you have problems post the job.php code here and I will see if I can help further.

    To your second point, with Jamie social icons this is intended to be shown on your readers social sites, for example when a reader clicks on for example the Facebook like, it will show on their Facebook page that they like (in this case) the job so there friends will see and hopefully come to your site and like the jobs, which will be displayed on their wall/timeline increasing the traffic to your site, if it only showed on your wall/timeline you will only be showing to a limited audience, so no ID is required. I hope that this makes sense and answers your questions, if not let me know how ican help further.

    I found the following code within the job.php theme;

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    							<div class="the-tags"><?php the_tags(__('Tags','PricerrTheme').": ", ', ', ', '); ?> </div>
    				  <div class="add-this">
    						<!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    							<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style">
    							<a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a>
    							<a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a>
    							<a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a>
    							<a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a>
    							<a class="addthis_button_compact"></a>
    							<a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a>
    							</div>
    							<script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-4df68b4a2795dcd9"></script>
    							<!-- AddThis Button END -->
    						</div>
    				</div></div>

    How do I prevent the <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?> from being overwritten whenever I update Pricerr theme? I want the Jamie social icons to appear after the content not in the content or before it? Greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.

    I see your dilemma with adding code to the template with a theme which is updated that is out of your control. I am working on a method that detects which custom posts are registered within the site, so you can show the icons automatically on custom post pages as well as the built in pages/posts which would mean not needing to amend template files. Sorry that is not helpful at the moment but in a future release will help you.
    For now you can add <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?> either below the_content or depending on whether you want the tags to display above or below the icons, or the add this icons, so then you would add the code below the closing div '</div>' of either the div with a class of the-tags or add-this. But will most likely be overwritten when the theme is updated. I hope this helps.

    So I should add <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?> after the last div before `<script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-4df68b4a2795dcd9"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->`

    or the last div after the javascript code quoted above? I'm not exactly clear where you're saying to place <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?>? There's a lot of div's. lol

    Ok I am now on my computer rather than my phone so I can type properly (I hope) if you want icons added after your "add this icons" copy the following code :

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <div class="the-tags"><?php the_tags(__('Tags','PricerrTheme').": ", ', ', ', '); ?> </div>
    <div class="add-this">
    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style">
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_compact"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-4df68b4a2795dcd9"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->
    </div>
    </php echo get_jamie_social_code();?>

    Note I have not included the last two </div>'s so they will appear after the code

    If you want the social icons to appear above the "Add this icons" and below the tags use the following

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <div class="the-tags"><?php the_tags(__('Tags','PricerrTheme').": ", ', ', ', '); ?> </div>
    <?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?>
    <div class="add-this">
    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style">
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_compact"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-4df68b4a2795dcd9"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->
    </div>

    Note I have not included the last two </div>'s so they will appear after the code

    I hope that this helps, if it does please rate my plugin and/or add it to your favorites.
