Something strange that could probably easily be corrected is the sharing behaviour of the pages created with PressForward: when you share the link on Twitter, everything goes normally, it shares a link to the post you just made, but when you share it on Facebook, it shares a direct link to the source, not to the curated post.
That’s the case on DHNow, but also on many other websites using PressForward. And the consequence is that when you create a PressForward post in a theme including sharing buttons with counts, the Facebook button will automatically be incremented with the shares of the primary source.
Fundamentaly, PressForward Dev may lead a discussion on the necessity to always refer to and share the primary source AND/OR the curated post. But for now, it’s important that all the buttons have the same effect: sharing the primary source OR sharing the PressForward post.
Is there a way to modify the plugin to force the sharing of the post or the primary source on every social media?
