[Plugin: Sharedaddy] Posts Only and Custom Post Types

  • I love this plugin but just need a little more control. Any suggestions are appreciated even if I have to hack the code a bit.

    How do I get it to show only on posts? NOT pages.

    Also, can I restrict certain custom posts types from displaying the share bar?

    I thought perhaps if I stop it from auto inserting and instead let put the code in the template myself, I could get enough control to make it work. Any suggestions on how to do that?

    Eventually the plugin will provide more control, but for now you can use the filter sharing_show to return true or false if you want the current page to display sharing buttons.

    How would this be used in on a page template?

    John – Thanks for the heads up! I didnt even see that option at the bottom of the edit page. Even better as there are some pages I’d like to share and other’s I would not.

    Kemch – there is a checkbox at the very bottom of each page when you are editing it to show or hide the sharing. Not sure if that answers your question, but it’s not really a template issue and don’t know if you can preset that option by template or not.

    What I wanted to do was have a home page that did not show the any sharing, but just simple excerpts of a couple of the most recent posts To accomplish this, I added this to the top of my home.php template.

    <?php function no_sharing() {
    add_filter('sharing_show', 'no_sharing');

    I’m not sure why I had to make an empty function, but that’s the only way I got it to work.



    Is there any progress on the functionality Karenalenore describes above?

    The per-page option is nice, but in a situation where you are activating this plugin on an established site with a significant amount of pages (around 600 in my case) it would be nice to globally exclude pages and/or custom post types by default through the settings page.
