  • hello thank you for the update

    everything else seems to be working fine, except the “email” icon has a weird border around it

    I’m trying to debug. Any ideas? It appears to be the only icon with a problem.

    My theme adds a border around images, which I don’t want for Sociable links. I always hack sociable.css like so:

    .sociable img {
    	float: none;
    	width: 16px;
    	height: 16px;
    	border: 0 !important;
    	margin: 0 !important;
    	padding: 0 !important;
    	background: none !important;

    Could this be added as a standard feature? I don’t see why theme image style should ever apply to Sociable icons. (But the background tag might break the new CSS Sprite technique… I had to disable it.)

    This upgrade doesn’t seem to fix the XHTML validation issues:

    @pento you are trying to validate it in HTML 5, it is validated for XHTML transitional. We will deal with the duplicate IDs in the upcoming versions

    Unique ID values is defined in HTML4, and every subsequent HTML and XHTML spec. I’m not sure how you’re validating it in your tests, but your tests are evidently broken. Duplicate IDs have never been allowed.

    Also, I’d appreciate it if you changed the line:



    wp_enqueue_style('sociable-front-css',$sociablepluginpath.'sociable.css', false, false, 'all');

    The media attribute really shouldn’t be left empty, or at the very least, should be set to ‘all’.

    @sociable: Thanks for the fast update of your great plugin.

    The plugin is now almost (x)html valid. You just have to remove line 777 which adds an ID to the images. The ID is not neccessary for the stylesheets or the javascript so why have you used it?

    When I remove the line your plugin works as before. So could you please remove the line in the next update so we don’t have to do that manually. Or is there a hidden miracle with the ID I didn’t see?

    I think this sounds like a reason for v3.5.2 for XHTML validation issues.

    I’m glad to hear that you now made the dashboard widget able to be removed. I’m just not a fan of push-on marketing.


    Haha, one other thing, I just noticed in this forum posting you specified the WordPress version as being “WordPress version: 3.5.1”. I wish I had access to WordPress 3.5 haha. Guess I’ll have to settle for v2.8.4 still. Oh well.

    Why DesignFloat has been removed? Its completely live service now.

    Sociable was working great at 3.5 on 2.8.4 but after upgrade a whole mess.

    Posts: The icons all align vertically now.

    Live blog at:

    Also I can no longer drag and drop the icons to reorder them in my admin area. They display just as the icons in my post do.. One long vertical list.

    Since the 3.5.1 update, I can NO LONGER access the Sociable plugins’ settings page. It only comes up as a blank page.


    What happened to this great plugin. I would love to use it but can not the way it is.

    @pento I’m validating for HTML5 and I just want to thank you for posting that.
