First off let me say I think this is a really snazzy plugin. Professional and good looking 🙂
I have a small issue with the social buttons though… or maybe I don’t understand what their function is supposed to be. Please correct me if I’m wrong: Since the share messages are setup in the plugin admin, I assumed that those are the messages & images shared to the respective sites when those social buttons are used. Am I correct on that, or do I misunderstand it?
The reason I’m asking is that, when I click on a social button, all I get is the actual site (e.g. Facebook) opening in the same window, navigating the contestant away from my site and providing no sharing options.
Could you help?
thank you for the feedback.
Thank you for the reply.
I then tried Chrome, but the experience was the same as with Firefox. This is the page I have the contest on – perhaps you could see something I don’t?
Thanks for your kind assistance!
could you please link us to a page with contesthopper widget again? It is a 404 on the one you linked before.
Since we need to launch a contest on Tuesday 21 June I trashed that page and tried to find another plugin. Pity, because I really like the look of yours and how easy it is to operate.
I haven’t found another plugin yet so I’ve activated your plugin again and created a new page with the contest that I had created earlier:
Thanks for checking!
I said 21 June – sorry, I meant 21 January, this coming Tuesday.
We’ve postponed our launch to tomorrow 22 January, just in case you might have an easy solution for us 🙂
I have 2 issues so far with sharing.
1. When sharing to Pinterest it does not put the Custom Url on the page. But everything from image to description is correct.
2 When posting to facebook the popup comes with the correct image and description and correct custom url but when you share link. Facebook grabs the image of the root site and removes the description that you put in on the backend but still keeps the custom url.
Have a feeling this is done on the websites. Is there any fix or have you heard of these before.
Here is a link explaining that url shortners are being ripped out and the direct site is displayed on pinterest.
