@Tuqe, @Anonymous_et_EE
Thanks for your translations, I will add it with the next update.

@SüKûT
I have looked at the code of phpBBSEO, but I couldn't find a goot way in it so I have asked the author of the SEO extension, but no answer at now...

@Jammy Johnny
The name of the folder is tas2580/socialbuttons. You can see that at every extension in the composer.json in first line after "name":

I problem solved.
e.g: open viewtopic_body_footer_before.html
Find:

Code: Select all

<a href="#" onclick="return open_socialmedia('https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u={U_TOPIC}');" title="{L_SHARE_FACEBOOK}" class="socialmedia1">&nbsp;</a><span class="social_count">{SHARES_FACEBOOK}</span>
Change:

Code: Select all

<a href="#" onclick="return open_socialmedia('https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u={U_CANONICAL}');" title="{L_SHARE_FACEBOOK}" class="socialmedia1">&nbsp;</a><span class="social_count">{SHARES_FACEBOOK}</span>

Great extension, just what I've been looking for.

Can you build in something to deal with the restriction on characters for Tweets? I tried to tweet a forum post but couldn't work out why only the window opened without any content. Then I realised it's the character limitation of Twitter.

Perhaps give the option to edit the text and tweet the link which then drive traffic back to the forum post.

Also in my installation I'm not seeing the number of Tweets of Facebook posts increasing with each post made.

Keep up the good work.
Regards

Stu..

I have made some updates of the extension. Now you can choose between diverent styles for the buttons, also I have added a version check and now I use the canonical URL of the thread, thanks to SüKûT for this suggestion.

@MacBookPro:
I will check this in the next days when I have survived christmas with family and so on.

In your update did you happen to change where the top icons display? They no longer show on my forum.

Oh ups, I have the top icons moved for testing into topic tools and uploaded this by mistake. But if you whant to have them in top look at this. Maybe you have to use the code from the new template file.

I hope phpBB will get an better template event to put the icons in top.

Look forward to seeing if you have anything in the next update - Thanks.

Share page view link : https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer. ... p?f=5&t=46
On Facebook link : http://mysite.com/

Page can not be displayed error..

Next update.
Now the querys to the social media platforms will be made by curl_multi that is much faster. On Facebook I read out the share button now and don't use the API anymore, so you can make more than 50(?) queries a day.

I have added a spanish translation (thanks to my brother and his wife)

@SüKûT
Can you please put the URLs into the code tag? In your post the URL is cutted and I cant see whats the problem with it.

just installed the extension button shows in the bottom bot not in the top , though i have changed the selection to " At the top " from acp. Also there is no increment in icon number when sharing on any site.

i am using 3.1.2 and google adsense .

have a look to my forum . link is in the signature.
