[resolved] How to change facebook shares? (10 posts)

    Facebook share counter shows 1,33k instead of 1330. How can I change this?
    And in which file I can change the url for the background image?

    Hi there,

    We currently show 1.33k to keep share buttons tidy, especially when you get into the thousands.

    For background images, you can override our CSS to use custom icons or headings. Though I would actually recommend upgrading to version 7 of our plugin if you decide to do so (it's easier to change) http://wordpress.org/plugins/shareaholic/

    /* V6 Share buttons */
    ul.shr-socials li.shareaholic {
    background-image: url(http://media.erincooks.com/images/shareaholic/spritegen/sprite.png) !important;

    /* V6 Heading */
    div.shr-bookmarks {
    margin: 20px 0 8px;
    clear: both !important;
    display: block !important;

    Please let me know how it goes!

    Thanks for the answer, Andy.
    I want to change the sign "Sharing is caring", but I didn't understand in each file exactly I have to change the image url.

    If you set the style in your CSS file once, it should override every instance of the header.

    For Shareaholic V6:

    .shr-bookmarks {
    background-image: url('http://your-website.com/new-sharing-is-caring.jpg') !important;

    For Shareaholic V7:

    .shareaholic-share-buttons-heading {
    background: url('http://your-website.com/new-sharing-is-caring.jpg') 0 0 no-repeat;
    height: 65px;
    margin-bottom: -15px !important;

    .shareaholic-share-buttons-heading-image {
    display: none !important;

    I can not find the CSS file. Where is it?

    Thank you!

    Darko1988, this would be the CSS file of the theme you're currently using.

    Whenever I try to share via the Facebook button, I get a random photo and page not found error. Not on older posts, just everything new. What is happening? Here's today's post that isn't working.
