  • renewed thanks?? did u lose it along the way? did it start, stop, then start again?? that doesn’t sound good. ;( only joking w/ u! πŸ™‚

    i haven’t tested that latest release but those changes make sense. i’ll report back once i test it out later on.

    and AlphaGolf_fr, thanks again for taking my suggestion and running with it. i really do appreciate it…and i’m sure others will as well.

    topic resolved…until the next one. πŸ™‚

    john, u were supposed to ignore me, damn it! lol

    but thanks 4 the reassurance even though i didn’t need it.

    and if u cross your fingers and this site works out 4 me, i’ll be upgrading to the pro version to keep u going. plus, ur eye 4 detail stands out w/ the plugin, it’s a nice feature to have on any site.

    cheers

    never mind, stupid me, i wasn’t logged in fb with the right id. oops!

    ignore me. πŸ™‚

    okay, thanks kim, that makes sense now.

    and sorry 4 the delay, i missed this one. πŸ™‚

    @central Geek – u got it, louis. and hopefully u’ll be hearing from me sooner rather than later.

    sorry 4 the delay, i didn’t get notification of the last post. who knows, maybe the a-holes @ the nsa like to keep emails as well as read them.

    anyways…

    @central Geek – louis, first off, don’t apologize or take my comment about lack of activity on ur site as a negative because i really didn’t think much of it since reading a few positives about u, ur own posts @ central geek where u ‘hit the nail on the head’ re: mu, and i’ll add ur knowledge from being around the block in the business, so w/ all that i could care less about how much activity is on there or not. plus, from many indicators which i think you’ll agree, mu is kinda like exploring deep space: u know it’s out there but it’s not clear w/ directions on how to explore it once u get there. and that’s been my whole journey, sorta, and it’s some of the ‘how-to’ questions going forward are still somewhat of a mystery to me.

    so louis, i’ll take that offer of chatting w/ u about mu. i’m like a sponge, always willing to listen to those w/ the knowledge i can learn from. however, if and when i do contact u – at least u’ll know who i am – but i also want to be upfront since i am, literally, a 1 man show trying to get this thing off the ground, so if i’m not always spontaneous w/ my responses, u’ll know ‘why?’ and please don’t take it personal.

    and if ur fine w/ that, i’ll be around shortly. i’ve got a few different ideas, just need some expertise advice of what’s doable or not, etc.. and i’d be happy to listen ideas u have about mu since i’m willing to listen.

    thanks in advance.

    @alphagolf_fr – u can come out now! πŸ™‚

    #1. correct, it looks to be pulling the 1st pic from the very 1st post on any page. but i think i have a solution! it’s not a permanent one, obviously, and what i’m just going to do is locate the ‘blank’ avatar the theme is using since i don’t plan on using pics on posts (at least 4 now), change the name on the one i want to use, and overwrite the sucker so now it will be forced to use the one i want! πŸ™‚ for me, this should work until i can understand the logic and find a permanent solution.

    #2. yeah, like i mentioned earlier, not sure if i bookmarked the posting from the person – actually, now thinking about it, i came across a couple mentions about central geek during my madness research to learn more about multisites – but the last comments said a lot of nice things about central geek, so i’m glad u hit the light switch 4 me so i can put it on my to-do list. if anything, i’ll be curious on hearing his input on how far a knowledgeable developer can go to best manage a multisite setup, using plugins, data transfer from one site to another, etc.

    r u done with the plugin??? as soon as u create a nice responsive popup instead of lame new tab for when sharing to the various social networks, then i guess we can call it done, right?? and we’re waiting 4…what again?? lol j/k! πŸ™‚

    btw, thanks 4 everything, it’s appreciated.

    yeah, it was crazy there for a few weeks or so! i just need to make this project work, that’s all. plus, when i start something i usually can’t stop until i’m done (good and bad trait from my late father).

    and if i have to wait a few more weeks for the final draft of the plugin, after what i’ve been through recently, that’s a walk in the park! lol

    re #1: yeah, when i click on the fb share and the window opens, it’s pulling a pic and posting from the site. to me, however, on the homepage it looks like it’s using the ‘about’ i have on the fb page and the pic, well, it’s a blank pic so i don’t know where that’s coming from. i’m already using a fb app to pull posts from fb to the site, not sure if that has anything to do with it, just trying to figure it out.

    but after doing a little research i read i can ‘force’ any fb share to use a pic of my choosing for the whole site, not a certain page, so that’s what i’m trying to do. right now, i’ll be pleased with using the site mascot.

    i.e., go to central geek and try sharing using your plugin addon and u’ll see that it’s pulling a pic to be posted to fb. try a few different pages. they’re all different because it’s trying to grab any pic from that page, correct? for me, i’d like pic be the ‘same pic’ each and every time. i just need to figure out ‘how?’ ;(

    re #2: i actually came across that site sometime in the past, there wasn’t much activity, but from i recall the person who was writing said he was the guy to talk to. so, when i get to that point, i will talk to him. btw, he’s got stuff about ur toolbar on the site, do u have working relations with him? just curious.

    thanks

    what, no RUSH on your part? say WHAT?! lol j/k! πŸ™‚ ur timeline is fine with me. plus, since i appreciate u adding this to the bar and if it’s done in the next few weeks or so, that’s cool with me.

    and no problem on the feedback, you’re quite creative, and if my $.02 made any difference with this, it’s just a tidbit of what all users are getting w/ the neat plugin you’ve done already.

    but, again, as for the ‘NO RUSH comment’ above, well, i think we may need to take my thanks down a notch or two. πŸ˜‰

    re #1: a-okay – not sure what the issue was before, it’s opening in a new window. CHECK

    re #2: u asked 4 for feedback, deal w/ it! only kidding! it’s fine as it is w/ the ordering…and, yes, i agree, the colors do make it standout.

    2 more questions, when u get a chance, no russsshhhhhh on ur part. πŸ™‚

    1.) is this the correct meta i should add to the header.php for fb to scrap so it shows the correct image when sharing via fb?

    <meta property=”og:image” content=”http://mysite.com/photo.png&#8221; />

    because it’s showing a blank pic when clicking on the toolbar fb share, which it was doing before w/ another plugin, so i mine as well as fix it now.

    2.) just curious, do u have any recommendations on a multisite/wp developer for hire to do some basic plugins/programming? i don’t need things done this very second, just trying to narrow down a few to approach in the future when i get to that point and not be promised by someone that isn’t familiar w/ multisite setups. plus, it’s obvious u do things with detail and if u knew of a name or two, it would be someone that knew their stuff.

    thanks again

    no rush….the nerve of some people! πŸ™‚

    yeah, i agree, i really the plugin but, like i mentioned before, it just sticks out like a soar thumb since everything else is responsive on the site right now.

    btw, if 4 some reason i don’t reply back within the next few weeks and you’re still curious, just reply back here to remind me. πŸ™‚

    hi meenujo,

    thank you for the suggestion. the problem is, it also still stands out like a sore thumb because it doesn’t adjust like other parts of the site.

    i’m testing out a few different ideas right now. once i come up with one, i’ll do my best to let u know and maybe it will work for you as well since it’s obvious you’re using this plugin too.

    regardless, thanks for the idea, that’s what makes wp a great place. πŸ™‚

    he’s back! …but barely alive. i’m so sorry about not getting back to u sooner. this site that i’m working on, i have a certain timelines to get certain things done, if i don’t have them done in time, this is all for not! so i apologize for not responding sooner. a few more days, i’ll either be passed out or barely breathing, and certainly hoping 4 the later of the 2. ;(

    back to business…

    i’m laughing, probably because i’m exhausted as well, but with the colors turned on against the dark toolbar, today’s word is…sweet! πŸ™‚

    okay, feedback time..
    1. not sure, almost positive in the previous version, when i clicked an icon it opened a new tab. am i correct in this? because when i click a button now it uses the same window to go to any of the social sites. that’s not good. ideally, i don’t want to ask you, a small popup window would be nice, but opening in the new window would work just fine as well. but now thinking about it, i am 99.9% sure that’s what the previous one did, open in a new window when i clicked on it.

    2. this is quite minor, just because i’m thinking how others r putting the icons in order and knowing the volume of users on fb, for example, is there a way to sort (organize) the buttons?? or, if u can, just put them in order of popularity?

    1. fb
    2. twt
    3. lnkn
    4. g+
    5. stmbl

    it also makes it easier for a majority of people, at least i this so, on how most r used and accessing them. again, minor in nature, just thought i’d throw it out to you.

    and, btw, if i don’t get back to right away over the next few days, until things settle down, i’ll apologize upfront: sorry!

    lastly, i wish i was more talented in illustrator and the like and i’d do it when i had some time, ideally, it would be cool if you took a snapshot of the social icons on your toolbar, posted it on ur wp plugin home page, and then added info about it in the top description, just because i think many of the toolbar users will check it out…not to mention, the coolness you’ve done with the plugin overall, which, so far, most of which i haven’t even tested yet.

    that’s it. time to rest….

    oh yeah, forgot, that admin option to select whether to share the home page or current page, that would be a really nice feature! it would, in essence, replace quite a few social share plugins out there – at least for those using the toolbar and your plugin combo.

    here’s feedback coming your way! and one word so far: nice! πŸ™‚

    suggestions…

    1. if u can move it to the right, imo, it would work best. also, if u took my suggestion, having it on the right (for me, this area also includes buddypress menu) i’d say there’s more likelihood users will use it since they’ll be going to that menu quite often – at least i think so.

    2. when u refer to styles, r u referring to the style for the share buttons?? if so, that’s gonna b cool!

    if not, in the ‘actual’ button current form, here’s my first thoughts…

    a. a bit too large – needs just to be slightly smaller;
    b. if u were able to use ‘actual’ colored icons, that would PoP!

    not sure what u meant above, i’ll leave this alone for now.

    3. in addition to #1 and #2, it’s all up to u, but i think it would be helpful if it was highlighted a bit, maybe, something like this..

    <<|SHARE icon icon icon icon|>>

    …that way it sorta stands out on its own. and maybe the SHARE lettering could be in “red” or ??? lastly, by adding the SHARE also tells the slow learners, this is to SHARE the site, damn it! lol

    and the “|” just helps makes it nice and neat

    lastly, the “<< >>” refers to X px of spacing from the next item on the bar, just because as it stands right now it’s a bit too close to the next item and should be somewhat on its own. again, just my $.02.

    please, no harsh remarks, u asked 4 feedback!

    as long as i don’t burn myself out before i get to that point, i’ll send u an email in a few weeks and see if what ur first thoughts r.

    yeah, i’ve been to themeforest lots of times but never came across kriesi’s themes for buddypress, and here’s why…

    Hey! I am afraid I cant tell. Its not optimized for buddypress but that doesnt mean It wont work with it since I have been told that buddypress is undertaking some efforts to make the plugin compatible with any theme.

    however, if you want to be 100% sure I would recommend to search for a theme that explicitly states buddypress compatibility

    that was posted, literally, a few hours ago.

    bu i do agree, he’s got some nice clean and professional looking themes, just don’t like the idea using a theme that hasn’t focused on the social element because i learned that lesson once already, not a fun experience, imo. and sure, they say buddypress is free to work on all sites – or, at least, getting close to – i just don’t want to re-create the wheel and then realize my best bet was to target a buddypress focused theme in the first place. i’m sure u understand.

    anyways, nice chatting with u, and you’ll probably hear from me a little down the road.

    cheers
