Add new social media buttons (21 posts)

    Hi, I've had a look at all the help available on your page and the socialite.js page and I can't find a guide to adding new site buttons. I would like to add Reddit, Stumbleupon and Tumblr.

    Do you know how I would do this?

    Thanks

    Joe

    Yes! If you see the contribute section of the socialite github page there are instructions to add a network into the system. https://github.com/dbushell/Socialite#contribute

    Once you have done that I would enable it into the plugin. I can help with developing the buttons if you would like. Any other networks you can think of?

    Looking at the extensions currently made I don't think my javascript skills are up to scratch. I thought there might be an easy way like just adding the js url etc in a config file but it looks like things could get complex.

    Thanks anyway :)

    I'll put adding the extensions into my todo list for the next release. I usually release updates at the end of the week. I'll see if I can work something in.

    Great plugin thank you very much. It certainly produces the least load on my site, just what I have been looking for for a long time. I too look forward to having Stumbleupon added.

    I haven't upgraded the social network settings just yet, but I haven't forgotten!

    I was excited when I saw that an update for wpsocialite is available, but disappointed that it still doesn't include Stumbleupon.
    Please add SU and maybe reddit

    thanks

    I'll make my main focus for next release more social networks.

    liviuf,

    I usually push updates on the weekends, though adding new social networks might take a bit more time. Probably next week or the week after, depending on my workload.

    Appreciate your patience.

    Hi

    I thought you will add stumbleupon/more networks along with this update :\

    Apologies for the delay liviuf, but I've finally added stumbleupon!

    I would like you to beta test it. You can download the beta version from here: https://github.com/tmort/wpsocialite/archive/develop.zip. Unzip that and replace your current wpsocialite folder inside the wp-content/plugins folder. Then you can activate Stumbleupon in the admin area.

    Give me any feedback and if it works well I'll merge it into the main plugin.

    Hi Tom

    Firstly, love your plugin. It really is the best out there and has helped get my site load time right down.

    I came across this post as I am desperate to add stumble and installed your BETA version.

    On our site (where we have no problem with the current repository version) the plugin lost the lazy load on hover. If I click on the icons I am taken to the FB/Twitter/G+ or Stumble share page in a new window.

    If you want to see what I am speaking of you can check out how it is working on our staging site HERE

    Again - amazing plugin and if you have any questions for me that will help you take the plugin further I'd be happy to help

    David

    David,

    Sorry to hear it isn't working. The issue is with how GIT submodules are handled on Github. Essentially, the library (Socialite.js) did not come with the ZIP file I linked above. My fault, doh!

    Good news is StumbleUpon is out of beta and I'm going to be pushing an update this morning. Hang tight for a half hour or so and you'll see the update come through. I'll also update this post when it happens.

    I would delete wpsocialite-develop from your current site as well and reinstall the fresh copy once it is released.

    Glad you like the plugin, hope this helps!

    Tom

    David,

    Look for WPSocialite 2.2 to request an update within WordPress. That version will have stumbleupon out of beta. Let me know if that works and if you have any other issues.

    Thanks Tom. I've installed the new plugin and it looks like it's almost there. The only problem on my set up is that the stumble small icon displays as the twitter icon. When I hover over it the stumble button appears. Is this unique to me?

    David,

    That seems to be unique to you yes. Please refresh your cache or try a different browser. It sounds like you may be caching the image.

    Please see this video from the dev site I have locally: http://screencast.com/t/BKoLmgpjiw

    Can you link me to where you are experiencing the issue?

    You were right. Cleared the cache and that problem was resolved. Except now I've spotted a new issue. On the archive pages (e.g. the home home page, category pages) if I hover over the stumble button in one article it will appear (along with Twitter, FB & G+). When I hover over an article on any other article on the page the stumble submit doesn't appear (But the Twitter, FB & G+ do as normal). You can see this in action here:

    David,

    Unfortunately I see what you mean. Looks like I took StumbleUpon out of beta a little quick!

    I'm working on a fix, but unfortunately it didn't go out with this weeks 2.3 release. I'll try my hardest to push an update next weekend. Apologies to anyone having trouble with stumbleupon as well.
