If that's your site where you have those images hosted, then nope I don't have that issue. I can use google + fine on your board and anywhere else. btw, we can not view those images cuz of permissions etc..

Cheers mate, i have put them on my photobucket account so they should be visable now :oops:

I know now why it aint working, the email address i use is my google apps email address, so iv changed it to same one as my google+ email, its letting me post a comment on google but itss still wrong

The image/icon that shows on google+ is the first user on the threads sig.

The topic/thread title is correct BUT it contains the following info that seems to be taken BEFORE the actual g+ icon on the viewtopic page, I have social network links in my banner which is the first 6 items then its showing my directory to the topic.
Skip to content. RSS Facebook Twitter Google+ Podcast YouTube. Portal; Board Index; Site Features. Arcade. Game Nights; Points. Board index ‹ Coffin Dodgin Gaming ‹ Coffin Dodgin' Games ‹ RPG'.
..

WTF???

Think its time to disable it untill i get some support, though the FB and Twitter ones work perfect, just seems to be the g+ one thats borked :cry:

Fix:
Open: styles/prosilver/template/viewtopic_body.html, find:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF U_MCP --><p>[&nbsp;<a href="{U_MCP}">{L_MCP}</a>&nbsp;]</p><!-- ENDIF -->
<!-- INCLUDE sharetopic_body.html -->
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE sharetopic_body.html -->
<!-- IF U_MCP --><p>[&nbsp;<a href="{U_MCP}">{L_MCP}</a>&nbsp;]</p><!-- ENDIF -->
Already included in the new download.
cossielee wrote:Found another FB related bug, iv came across this before and i doubt there is much that can be done but when you 'Share' or 'Send' on facebook, its using random icon images once posted. I tested it and one post used my podcast icon and another used a rank image though the rank image that it used happens to be the rank of the last person to pot on the subject, no idea how it got my podcast icon though
The icon for posting on facebook, when sharing a link can be customized with Open Graph Protocol. I'll try to insert in the modification, but I think it looks better as a tip or FAQ. more info


-----------------------------------

A new download is available.

The only change is that now the Facebook language is available in list(ACP Settings - See screenshots). Who has installed, simply replace the files:
root/includes/acp/acp_share_topic_plus.php
root/language/en/mods/acp_share.php

And upload the new file:
root/FacebookLocales.xml

Question:
is there a way to choose what picture you want to display on facebook. when you click the like button the box shows up where you can type a message about the post...nice to also have the pic to choose

Great mod!

Vinny, i tried this and it didnt really work.

i used the following META code:

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:title" content="MY_SITENAME"/>
<meta name="og:type" content="website"/>
<meta name="og:url" content="http://www.MY_URL/"/>
<meta name="og:image" content="http://www.MY_URL/images/fbicon.png"/>
<meta name="og:site_name" content="MY_URL"/>
<meta name="fb:admins" content="USER_ID"/>
<meta name="og:description" content="A forum for PS3 gamer's where fun is the top priority."/>
By selecting the Send button on a topic i got the following info:

The og Title of site worked
The og URL worked but would not put in the actuall topic i was sending.
The og IMAGE i specified worked.
The og Site_Name worked, again with no connection to the topic i was sending.

When posted on facebook the image was NOT the one from the meta tags, again it was a random image form within the thread, the topic URL was Site_name/portal, thats not where it was posted from.

I messed about again and i seems its now using the icon that i specified, this works for me, im not saying it will work for everyone else, so heres what i added.

Create a image you want to use, mine was 200x200 and looks fine (not sure of actual size for FB)

OPEN overall_header
FIND

Code: Select all

<head>
BEFORE add:

Code: Select all

<html xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/website#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
FIND

Code: Select all

<head>
AFTER ADD

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:type" content="website"/>
<meta name="og:image" content="http://www.ADD URL TO YOUR IMAGE HERE"/>
Refresh style template. Test it a couple of times, the first few attempts didnt work but now its working fine

Honestly, I would suggest some changes:

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:title" content="MY_SITENAME"/>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:title" content="{TOPIC_TITLE}"/>
--------------------

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:url" content="http://www.MY_URL/"/>
It is useless when the URL of the topic is posted.

--------------------

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:site_name" content="MY_URL"/>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:site_name" content="{SITENAME}"/>
--------------------

ie I only recommend:

Code: Select all

<meta name="og:title" content="{TOPIC_TITLE}" />
<meta name="og:type" content="website" />
<meta name="og:image" content="http://www.MY_URL/images/fbicon.png" />
<meta name="og:site_name" content="{SITENAME}" />
<meta name="og:description" content="Description of your board " />
To see if the facebook bot already recognizes the new tags, do the test: http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug
