  • Resolved patrickhealy


    The latest update broke one of my sites. I have it sitting on the upper right hand side of every page so none of the pages will load if the button is enabled. I had to roll back the update to fix things and don’t know the best way to troubleshoot.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Hi Patrick,

    Do you have a link to said site?

    I do but I have the site rolled back to before the update so I don’t know if that will be helpful. Personally, I’d rather not post it publicly. Could I email it to you if you feel it would be helpful?

    Actually I think I already found something here. I’m guessing you were using the social share buttons before? That feature has been moved to a seperate plugin, but it seems that in certain cases it causes issues.

    If this is true, then I don’t need further information. I hope to release an update later today fixing this issue.

    Yes! I was using the older version that had social sharing incorporated. I tailored the button and had it floating on the upper right hand side of the screen at a fixed position to do what it does in lieu of any sharing mechanism.

    I would either just have it point to a link to a contact page or generate a popup containing a gravity form when pressed.

    You would be a total rock star if you could make it so this goes back to working. The sites I have this on (only one broke with this update) LOVE the implementation.

    Please check if version 7.1.3 works with you. It should be available soon.

    You can checkout our much more useful WordPress Share Buttons , which is replacing the social sharing in the plugin.

    It’s still possible to add a custom maxbutton there, but we decided to move this to the PRO version since it was not much used and turned out it was also very complicated to grasp for a lot of users. Sorry about that.

    Maybe your theme has some option to add a fixed content part and you can dump a maxbutton in there or so.

    I believe what we did was we we created a simple container in one of the genesis simple hooks and dropped the short code for the button in there. We’ve done it this way for a few sites and they are all still working. I’m wondering if the button (or container) are butting heads with the popup creator that we have the button launching…..

    We tried the social share when you released it originally but we couldn’t, for whatever reason, just get the button to float in a fixed position and have nothing else in the bar. The social share, ironically, wants something in there to share. šŸ™‚

    You can add custom buttons without the sharing though, but the method you described before sounds better since social share is not created for not sharing.

    It shouldn’t be an issue, at least from the perspective of the buttons.

    the new fix seems to have done the trick. What the original update did (and what this one is still doing sans the error) is removing the ability to naturally float a button on the right hand side. So I created this snippet and dropped it into the content hook of Genesis Simple Hooks (don’t forget to enable shortcodes on the hook). Clearly, you can tweak the margin and position preferences by changing the numbers:

    <span style=”z-index: 9999; margin: 6px;right: 10px;object-position: 175px;top: 22%;position: fixed;word-wrap: normal;width: 160px;”>[maxbutton id=”1″]</span>
