    Hi

    this looks like an amazing plugin, just wondering if anyone has used it with woocommerce and will it pull in the product if someone wants to tweet it for example?

    thanks

    Hi,

    I've not used woocommerce before, but I presume it utilises the WordPress post functionality to create the individual product pages. This would therefore mean that this plugin would use the is_single() hook and display the share buttons accordingly.

    I could be wrong but I'm fairly confident that it will work for you. If it doesn't just let me know I'll take a look at it for you and see what can be done!

    Have a try, if you don't like it or decide against it, the uninstall script will delete all traces for you, from the database and files :)

    Hope you like it!

    David

    thanks for fast reply, it works wonderfully, but does have a minor layout issue, when i set buttons to either left or right or even centre the layout breaks into two lines, font size is 14, image size 20 px, so i am not sure if it is conflicting with woo css or maybe even gdstar rating above it,

    thanks

    Great to see it's showing up!

    Strange, it's definitely CSS related, I've not managed to figure out which attribute is causing it though!

    It's almost like it's being forced into a small div, but the HTML shown on the page doesn't reflect that!

    A couple of options that you seem to have are:

    • Remove the share text
    • Place the share text above or below the share buttons

    Both options make the share buttons take up a little less width and seem to resolve the problem. Not ideal though, I'll try and figure it out for you!

    Thanks,

    David

    Hmm, I wonder why that is.

    Woocommerce must be pulling a post through without officially letting the WordPress code know that it's being displayed on the homepage.

    One thing you could do, if you wish to hide it from this page, is write the following shortcode within the theme's template for the some of the text on the homepage - [ssba_hide]

    Note that this will hide all share buttons on the page it's written, so it will need to be on the homepage only that this is used.

    Thanks,

    David

    No problems at all, glad to hear it's sorted for you :)

    Thanks very much :)

    P.S. I'd be really grateful if you have a moment to rate the plugin, if there's anything you'd like to see done before it's worthy of 5 stars just let me know and I'll see what I can do!

    obviously other than the minor clitches to be fixed the only feature i would like to see added is to allow the CSS and png images to served from cloudfront

    5 stars given :)

    Awesome thanks very much for the rating! :)

    This is the first I've heard of cloudfront to be honest!

    I've had a quick skim over what it's about, hosting the CSS on it would mean quite a few changes, but the images can be done already pretty easily:

    If you upload the images to cloudfront (presuming I've understood what the purpose of it is!) and select 'Custom' from the image set drop down, you can paste in the URLs of each of the images there!

    Thanks,

    David

    just a thought, the hide shortcode does hide the images etc from view, but they still load in a hidden form, thus they will have an effect on the speed of load for front page

    Unfortunately so, I'm desperately seeking a way of not running the code altogether but to no avail so far :(

    I'm sure it'll end up being something really simple and I'll kick myself for not thinking of it sooner!

    'Snozzles' lol, I like it, shall look back every once in a while!

    Thanks for the optimisation note, I shall sort that, less reader-friendly yet it's unlikely I'll be changing it anytime soon!

    Unfortunately Pinterest opens in the same window no matter what, it's just the way they've designed it. Sorry about that!

    what would be a fantastic addition

    is a select page type to exclude

    for example you want all product pages included in share, but you dont want pages such as change password, account page etc so these types could be excluded

    a good example of this would be a plugin called
    XML Sitemap & Google News Feeds
    written by RavanH
    within it he has set exclude pages of certain types or posts of certain types, this allows for use with woocommerce
