BuddyPress Share It button live
Adds a share button that when clicked shows various options to share that content on other sites. Wanted to create a way to include multiple buttons with out it taking up space.
Let me know if you see errors or bugs.
You cannot post the first item on the activity stream to Facebook. It asks for the URL but all the other activity stream items gets the URL.
Edit: My mistake. There were special characters in the content that I tried to share and it didn’t seem to like that.
Edit: soz I came right. This time it was a js error, had to rename them too.. Overlooked it :< @modemlooper
Im having trouble trying to style the share it button, say I create a new rule for div class=”bp-share-it-button-group generic-button ” and rename the div according to the new rule/styling I’ve created. The shareit button is styled correctly ( as to the new rule I created ) but the drop-down list doesn’t work. I’ve tried a few approaches, even duplicating the generic-button rule in my themes css but still the drop-down wont work.
Am I missing something here? Please let me know if you have a solution.
If you rename the div then the js will stop as the js is attached to that class.
Feature Request: So far plugin runs good on my site but I wold like a option to turn off the share button on my posts. I only want it for the buddypress side as I already have some form of sharing incorporated on my posts and this does not mesh well with my theme. Thanks
Love the plugin, works great. However, I too seem to have the problem of the “Load More” button not working when it is active. I am using Atahualpa for what it’s worth. If I knew enough about this coding, I’d gladly bring something to the table, but alas, I support IVR’s
@stang5_0 I had that problem too (and posted a month ago here)… it might have been another plugin conflict, but I’ve since not used the plugin, so I never have taken the time to find out which one was possibly conflicting…try disabling your other plugins and see if it works..
I think another plugin is causing this. Do you have any other sharing plugins? Try turning them off until you find the culprit so I can fix it. Thanks.
@modemlooper , Is there an option to have a share on Linkedin button in this plugin?
@pjnu I may add that option. I’ll probably do a version 2.0 with admin options to pick and choose share sites.
Try adding this to bp-custom.php file in your plugins folder.
remove_action(‘bp_before_blog_single_post’, ‘bp_share_it_button_blog_filter’, 999);
I’ve installed the plug in on WP 3.0 with BP and network activated it. But I don’t see the buttons on any of the posts. I didn’t get any errors. The plug in shows as being active in my plug in list. I use Supporter from WPMU and its set for all blogs. But its not showing up. Would another plug in be causing it to not show up? lifesparknetwork.com
It should show on the main BP blog. Is the share button showing on activity stream items?
what version of BuddyPress?
could you help a bit on translation, I know it is just one word – Share (button), but…
I added this line to bp-share-it.php:
translation is loading, seems to work fine.
question is how I can add translation tags to this code (as I understand this is exact place word “Share” comes from (one of them, all others are the same):
`$shareit = ‘Share
- ‘ . $shareittwitter . ‘
- ‘ . $shareitbuzz . ‘
- ‘ . $shareitfacebook . ‘
- ‘ . $shareitdigg . ‘
- ‘ . $shareitemail . ‘
@janismo Just updated the plugin in the repo and added localization to the share button.
thanks for response, but have to conclude that your method does not work for me. `$sharetrans = __(‘Share’, ‘bpsi’);` is something completely new for me, so I tried to add .po/.mo files to language folder, to main folder, tried to rename language folder to languages, tried to change your compatir in bpsi-es_ES, nothing helps, still word “Share”.
what is the method./idea to get it done? maybe you could show me example of load_textdomain/_e/__ for one string and I will change remaining manually?
another issue is that my theme body is 90% and now I see that share container in groups is not fully displayed = it ends on the middle of button “email”…is it known issue?
thanks a lot!
You also need to have both the same BP language file and the WP language file.
Buddypress Version 1.2.8
The plugin installs with no warnings, but when I try to select (the checkboxes) which social medias and what activities that should be able to be shared and click the “Save” button the checkboxes just get cleared and pretty much nothing else happens..
