    No worries, I fixed it already. 🙂

    Thanks for reaching out.

    I just tried, liking works fine.

    I don’t see any share option – did you select that on the plugin’s settings page?

    It should work now.

    Normally when you click a social media button, an action should start:
    * A pop-up for sharing your posting on Twitter, Facebook, G+ or whatever.

    At least I’m used to this.

    But here, it works different. You click the social media button next you get a kind of menu and later you select what you want.

    I didn’t notice immediately it worked like a menu, because it contained just one item. I had the feeling that the menu-item was more like a kind of tooltip.

    Later I clicked several times on the ‘big’ button, but nothing happened, just showing the ‘tooltip’. 🙂

    I added two ‘actions’ for each button and since you have now 2 menu-items it’s more clear that it works like a kind of menu.

    Maybe it’s an idea to provide this as an option:

    if you have only 1 action connected with your button then it should start the action, without you have to hit the tooltip ‘menu-item’.

    Yes, if you give it only a “visit me”-functionality (and no others) no tooltip will be displayed.

    If you only give it a share-functionality then we still need to show the tooltip because we need to show the share-button which is coming from facebook and it has a different design. However, we managed to find a workaround in this plugin: https://www.ultimatelysocial.com/usm-premium/. There, if you only give it a share-functionality, no tooltip will be displayed, so people can share directly after click on the icon.

    Ok, then I’ll jump on the premium program later.

    I guess I have to do it anyway, because it’s not translating well now and the format isn’t like I want.

    If you Tweet the article, you get a pop-up with this data:

    Hey, check out this cool site I found: http://www.yourname.com #Topic via@my_twitter_name https://www.perita.be/heet-bezoekers-niet-meer-welkom-op-je-website

    I would like that it showed the page title, the url and next the message ‘via @PeritaDotBe’.

    Example for this page:

    Heet bezoekers niet meer welkom op je website https://www.perita.be/heet-bezoekers-niet-meer-welkom-op-je-website via @PeritaDotBe

    Yes, it should do that. If it doesn’t then there are some issues on your site – we can investigate & fix also as part of premium.

    Nice. Then I’ll go for premium in a couple of days.

    Thx dude! 🙂
