[resolved] Sharing post instead of homepage (where icons are located) (4 posts)

    Hi there,
    I love this simple to use plugin, and have added it to the homepage of a client's site (via adding shortcode). When clicking on the icon however, the information that is to be shared is the latest blog posting.

    How can I get the text/link to be about the site's homepage and not the latest blog?

    Many thanks!

    Hi fmevans
    Is your client same page showing the latest posts? If so the page is not a static page so does not have its own loop, well as a page anyway. When adding the shortcode it is added to the individual posts hence the buttons sharing the posts rather than the page. When added to static pages it will share the page as a whole.
    You can add the code within the template to be able to like the page as a whole, be very careful adding code to the template files and if you are at all unsure get a developer to add it.

    If I am wrong about the home page showing the latest posts send me a link then I can see what your are meaning.

    Hello again,
    Thanks so much for you (speedy!) reply - your assumption is spot on - I just need the code to like the site as a whole, but making those changes are somewhat beyond my capabilities!! (I know my limits ;o)

    Anyway - thanks for getting back to me!

    No problem, I will look at adding that functionality for the home page if it is a news page in a future update.
