I have solved the issue with the content showing, the next problem is that the Share Count is not working so it does not count the amount of shares done.

Also When stuff is being shared, it seems to cache old OG data, I have purged both Caches but shares the old content, I assume this is due to FB cashing the data, but is there any way to refresh this data on button click
?

Hi Gobien, Thanks for the reply.

My forum was new and social media buttons were working perfectly, however I noticed that the buttons for twitter, google and linkin were not working when there were similar topics. Facebook was ok.

Clicking on twitter/google/linkin button would redirect the link to my topic url instead of twitter/google/linkin login url. So, it was like as if I was refreshing the url (F5).

When I said "conflict with similar topics" , it was purely my wild speculation and guessing based on my observation. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

hi,

Sorry but i can confirm that the problem is not a conflict with similar topics extension as now i have a new topic with similar topics and there is no problem at all.

However the problem still persists. It is like clicking on the button of "top" that comes with phpbb3 at the bottom right corner.

Thank you.

It's working nicely on my forum. I had to place the button at the bottom. At the top, my board style (we_universal) was preventing it from displaying correctly.

The next question is whether you plan to add other sites.

In any case, well done, and I think this is very useful! :)

My one suggestion is that for the Facebook module, when you remove the paragraphs/line breaks, it should insert a space. Otherwise, the sentences run together.

See example here:

A option to "activate" the button yourself would be nice for privacy.

I would like to ask. The OG Meta Tags are used only on FB, aren't they?

On the German side to report some of the counter to 0 stops whether was probably divided several times. I was one of them.

My solution looks like this. Tested with Google Plus and Facebook

The $url is now included in the link with urlencode($url).
Example of Facebook

Code: Select all

            if(isset($this->config['socialbuttons_facebook']) && ($this->config['socialbuttons_facebook'] == 1))
            {
                $querys['facebook']    = 'https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?&layout=box_count&href=' . urlencode($url);
            } 
and then I have added 'curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);'

Code: Select all

                foreach($querys as $platform => $query_url)
                {
                    $ch = curl_init();
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $query_url);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_NOBODY, false);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); 
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); 
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0'); 
                    curl_multi_add_handle($mh, $ch);
                    $handle[$platform] = $ch;
                } 
Perhaps the developers can incorporate the yes in the next version.

Greeting Timo

This may be a Facebook itself.

Similar to the post of links, because you get even the choice of the image. What is unfortunately not the case here.

Hi,

I would like to know how to add different images to different topics in the forum while posting it on Facebook, ( currently I am using my forum logo, which I would like to change to images pertaining to different topics).

Regards,
Saiyed Sabahat
