- How To show the Jamie Social Icons On the blog feed page/ excerpt news feeds
You can add the social icons after each post on the main blog feed/category pages although it will not be automatic.
You will need to add
<?php echo get_jamie_social_code(); ?>into the template. On the index.php/category.php/archive.php look for the loop and after
<?php the_excerpt();?>add the code and the icons will appear on the feed pages.
I did not make it a function so it is automatic because when you like/tweet etc a post it shares the url with posts on the blog feed/ category page the posts move to different pages if paginated as new posts are added.
If this function is required let me know And it will be in the next update
- Facebook Icon is not showing
Recently Facebook has been doing lots of updates to their Facebook Like button which has resulted in the Facebook Button disappearing – especially in older browsers (IE8 and below), In update Version 0.9.2 it is now working with all browsers but will be keeping an eye on any updates.
- Google Plus Is not showing on my post
The Google Plus Button does not support IE7 so it will not be shown, if you are still using IE7 please update your browser to Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari or any other modern browser.
- Twitter is not displaying my counts
To improve performance Twitter cache the count before displaying it. The cache is updated frequently but on some occasions it may look like your count is not increasing while the cache is updated. In addition, the count only includes public Tweets meaning a Tweet from a protected account will not cause an increase.
- Can The Facebook Like change the Verb to Recommend?
This functionality has been added in the release of V0.9.6, you can show either Facebook Like or Facebook Recommend
- Twitter is showing as text, Facebook is not showing your plugin is broken!! LinkedIn & Google+ are not showing
Please check that your theme has wp_head in the header.php and wp_footer in the footer.php the plugin will not work without these important parts of code in the theme find out more here
- I cannot add the Social Icons automatically to CPT
I am currently working on this function and hope to have it available on a later release
- I have added default text infront of the icons and the style is not aligned next to the icons
Because each theme has unique stylesheets this is something I will not be able to support, you can override my plugins stylesheet in your themes stylesheet to get your desired effect. The ul list has a class of jamie_social
