[resolved] feature suggestion for simple social (27 posts)

    This plugin seems to work well. I have edited it on the site I have used it on though as I only wanted share buttons to appear on single posts and pages - ie not on the homepage or archives, i also excluded certain pages that were not appropriate to be shared on the site such as the contact page. my changes were hardcoded in the plugin as I do not think the requirements for the site will change, but maybe other users would find additional options useful without making the plugin bloated?

    If feature suggestions are being considered, I think a great addition would be the ability to set which pages the buttons are to appear on - various options can be checked (home / pages / single posts / archives etc ) and if pages is checked, maybe there could be a input for a list of pages to be excluded.

    Hi,

    thank you for suggestion! Today I found, that my blog homepage is really slow because of a lot of sharing icons on HP. So in version 0.3.2 I restricted sharing icons only in pages, where is single post.

    I'll think about settings according to your suggestion.

    Thanks!

    Thanks fabiancz - I think the beauty of the plugin is that it is lightweight compared to some of the alternatives, so I can see you may not want to any features that could bloat it.

    One issue I've discovered on my test site is that after unchecking the options for the twitter, facebook & google+ widgets in the admin panel, the google+ widget still appeared on my test site above the 16x16 icons. I have fixed this on my installation by changing the option name in the code from plusonewidget to googlepluswidget.

    cheers fabiancz.

    One more thing I've noticed (sorry) - is that the css & js appears in the head of all pages of the site including ones that we are not displaying the buttons on - would it be tidier to restrict adding the css & js to just the same pages we want the buttons to appear on?

    I guess the quick way to do this would be to change

    add_action('wp_head', 'simple_social_css');

    to

    if (!is_feed() && !is_page() && is_single()){
    add_action('wp_head', 'simple_social_css');
    }

    Thanks for the offer fabiancz, but I'm probably better at breaking things than fixing them, but I'll let you know if I do find anything else.

    Hi Fabian,

    Great plug-in so far. I have a question. How do I add spaces between icons and line breaks within your plug-in? I'd like for a space in between each social button. And I'd like to see if it's possible to move the google+ onto the same line as the social buttons.

    Thanks,

    Hi gerardb63,

    you can use CSS class simplesocial, which has div with G+ button and same class, which has every social button.

    Thanks. I was able to edit some padding to get it almost where I want.

    How would I add extra line breaks at the end? Right now the widget is hugged really close to my post tags line.

    Hi,
    sorry for late replay.

    I uploaded new version 0.3.5, where I repaired cleaner div. Also I added class "simplesocial-clear", which you can yous for bigger space under plugin.

    rebeccacotu: Yes. After you install this plugin, go to your WP-admin > Settings > Simple social icons.

    Yes, I see; it's an easier interface to use. Unfortunately, it doesn't have as many to choose from (including some that I wanted)...

    Hi fabiancz, thanks for this gr8 plugin.
    I have tried to change the location of this plugin from "just after post-content" to just after "wp_link_pages" div tag.
    but i failed miserably. Could you please help me out?
    I have my post divided in several pages, and I want to show this plugin after the page-links div bar.

    Why are small icons are not displayed? And is it normal to have a slow pace on our pages since installing the new plugin?
    Thank's for help.

    @Sunny29

    To fix the title encoding in the simple-social.php file in the plugin folder on line 14 change this line:

    $simplesocial_title = urlencode(get_the_title($post->ID));

    to:

    $simplesocial_title = get_the_title($post->ID);

    Hi,

    thank you for bugreports:)

    rebeccacotu: I think it's many services to choose from - 14:). But if you miss some service, you can send me a link and I'll try to add it.

    syed544: I'm not experienced WP admin, so I haven't any WP web with post on multiple pages. Can you help me how can I set my test WP page like yours and improve this plugin to show only after ""wp_link_pages". Thanks!

    Sunny29: You installed plugin and icons of services aren't displayed? Did you copy both img_16 and img_32 folders to your plugins/simple-social-sharing-widgets-icons-updated/ directory?
    And yes: this plugin may slow your site, because they load some javascripts from facebook, twitter or google, which can take a while (in the dependence of mentioned services).

    The little bug with encoded title in twitter plugin will be fixed in version 0.3.6 (which I'm currently uploading).

    Thank you for using this plugin:)

    Hi,
    just wondering if this can be embedded within a post and not just after the post?

    Hi, I just uploaded the plug-in to my blog site however it doesn't seem to be working. Uploaded it to the correct location in my directory, I see it in my blog admin plugin setting page, and I have activated it. But when I go to the settings, I see broken links for the icons and I do not see it on my website.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance!

    Hi Fabian,

    Any way I can have the twiitter share button use the default shortened URL for my post?

    Also, I was able to make my twitter name auto-populate with the URL so it would say "via @GQtrippin" after the link. However I need to add a space between the URL and the 'via @GQtrippin". How can I add that blank space?

    Hi Fabian,

    Yes, all image files ( img/, icon/ and icon32/) are all uploaded to the ../wp-content/simple-social-sharing-widgets-icons-updated directory.

    It sees the images there but with broken image posts. In addition when activated, all posts do not have the social tags at the bottom.

    Thanks again for responding so quickly.

    I was able to fix the spacing issue. Would still like to know about the shortlink capability and the ability to have the post title be automatically included with the link when users try to share through the twitter button.
