Support » Plugin: Social Share Buttons - Social Pug » Careful! The code/settings for this plugin messed up my Google Maps on my Page

  • Careful! The code/settings for this plugin messed up my Google Maps on my Page. There is a setting that somehow messed with the footer. And the code that messes with the footer messed with my Google Maps plugin somehow. When I had Social Pug installed, I put the settings for the social media buttons to show the Title of the button next to the icons. For example, the word “Instagram” shows up next to the Instagram icon. This setting also changed my theme’s default social media buttons on the footer, so they showed the words next to social media icons too. (I have twenty-seventeen wordpress default theme).

    After I uninstalled Social Pug, my Map stopped working and it took me a while to figure out that Google Maps somehow utilizes some part of the footer’s code or something. I don’t know how to code and had to look this all up myself so it took a long time! I reinstalled Social Pug, changed the icon setting within the plugin and then reinstalled my Maps plugin. My map was finally restored but this plugin’s code affected my Map on my page. The map didn’t work for a while and it was super annoying. The icons are nice though it’s just this one thing really put me off and I am using another social media plugin.

    Hey there,

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review and I’m really sorry you’ve had trouble with Social Pug.

    Even though Social Pug does use default WordPress footer hooks to add information to the footer, this should have not affected other plugins that do the same. Can you please tell me which Google Maps plugin you are using so that I can try to replicate the issue?

    Also, each plugin in this repository has its own support forum where you can ask for help. We offer support for Social Pug ( link here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/social-pug/ ) and we could have looked into this issue before you going into all the trouble of researching it. If you have contacted support and we didn’t respond I do apologies.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards,
    Mihai
