Support » Plugin: Hupso Share Buttons for Twitter, Facebook & Google+ » Controlling share text
I’d like to be able to set the share text myself as opposed to having just the 3 options (web tile, post title or generic custom text). I want to have multiple share toolbars on a post, with each section of my post having different share text.
I noticed that the function gets passed the variable hupso_title_t to set the share text. Would it be possible to set the text myself easily? I don’t want to do extensive updates on the plugin. One thing I could suggest is making the share text available as a parameter to the short code, such as [hupso text=”Bla Bla”]. Is something like this available or is there another easy method to set the text myself?
Actually if I pass the variable hupso_title_t to the HTML custom code as mentioned on hupso.com it works.
I’m new to WordPress and I’m not sure how to add the html code. When I add it using the visual editor it doesn’t render properly. I want to add it to specific areas of my post. Any help is appreciated.
I will add this feature in the next version, so you will be able to do it like this:
[hupso title=”New title”]
Thanks Kasal. I used your plugin in conjunction with the shortcoder plugin and got it to work and I can pass variables for text and url.
I think adding share text and even url parameters will be a nice add on to the plugin but for now I’m ok if you have other enhancements you want to prioritize.
Thanks for you help. I like your plugin. It’s simple and easy to use.
This is now possible in version 3.9.3.
From the FAQ:
Can I set title and url as shortcode parameters?
Yes. Include this shortcodes anywhere inside post’s text or inside text widget: [hupso title=”My title” url=”http://www.hupso.com/share/”]. Replace title and url with your title and your url. You can also set only one of the parameters like this: [hupso title=”My title”] or like this [hupso url=”http://www.hupso.com/share/”].
