Description:
This modification allows you to add icons for Social Networking sites that your site has a presence on. Included in this modification are 35 Social Network icons for you to choose from and display provided by ElegantThemes.

Installation:

Download the zip file and upload it to your core/packages/ directory.
Configure settings at: Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Social Connect Settings.
Done.


If Auto Install doesn't work, upload all the files and import the XML found in the xml directory in the zip file.

Changelog:

Notes:
I'm always looking to improve my work for the people that enjoy using it. If you have any suggestions on how I can improve this hack then please leave a comment and I'll see what I'm able to do. Don't forget to 'Mark As Installed' if you've got it installed!

Not a bad job on compressing the images either, was only able to shave off 4 KB total using pnggauntlet.

Do you make a version of this for vB4? It's exactly what I'm looking for but I can't find anything for version 4

Shadow - did as outlined above but can't seem to open the .zip file, receiving a warning:

Warning: Skipping "socialconnect\". The general purpose flags stored in the local header for this files are not the same as the general purpose flags stored in the central header.

Tried to unpackage .zip to upload individual files - but I am clearly doing something wrong here.

Could you give me some pointers on what I need to do to get your mod installed please?

Thanks heaps [also for putting this together mate - looks great!]

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Are you using SharpZip? Could you try extracting with WinRAR?

Links to Android & iPhone apps would be good.

Thanks for the work!

I uploaded folder to core, saw the options, enabled social icons added the Twitter icon to show. Nothing shows. v5.0.2

Nvm. It worked but ruins responsive design on mobile devices.

I very much like this! However I would like the ability to add custom fields and hover over text for those fields (So I can add a proper steam link for example rather then having to replace a random icon with a steam one). I'd also like the ability to rearrange the icon order. Other than that this mod is great!

Please fix the size of the button on mobile devices. On iPhone with Safari it's very small.

Thank you, great mod for desktop version.

Ok, noob question time, will and does this work on the latest release ... if so how do I install it please, when I upload the XML it says its not made for 5.0.3

Nice mod. Thanks.

One question: we have a large forum banner that covers the social media icons. How can I move them under the search?

You do some cool mods! I love this... Is there a way to put (move down) the location of the social icons AND search bar into the header tab bar? That would be perfect and really streamline the appearance of the page. Thanks!

i am new at VB5 so i was able to use xml import to install the mod but i am unsure where to upload the api and images files. I uploaded the images to the defualt image directory and they dont display. Am i missing something on how to install your mod or mods in general?

Thanks!!

I fixed my issue, unitedgaming this may be your issue as well, make sure that you don't have 2 folders named socialconnect inside the core/packages folder. Basically you may accidentally have /core/packages/socialconnect/socialconnect/ (the files), it needs to be /core/packages/socialconnect/ (the files). this fixed it for me :) great mod, thank you

I manually updated the api/options.php file to get it to work with 5.1.4 and it seems to be working ok... The icons display above the search bar instead of to-the-left-of for me (though that's fine, and might be because of other header/css customizations i have in place)... I made a slight tweak to product_socialconnect.xml as well to adjust the padding-left to 10px on the div so that it properly aligned above the search bar...

All in all a nice add-on though, and really something that should be part of core by now.

Hello,

I have a slight alignment issue. The social icons are displaying above the search box, is there a way to display them left of the search box?

See the post above yours, you may need to tweak the .xml file by adding a div or some padding

I installed this on 5.1.9.
It works.

Good stuff but not exactly what I am looking for just yet. The future maybe?
What I wanted was a simple sharing option where people can share a post or an article they see.
Same kind of thing - I thought but it would take the post or create a link and then send it to the users chosen social media account.

Great idea though. .

Doesn't show up in my Options list.
I followed instructions above (upload to core/packages/ directory) then went to: Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Social Connect Settings.
'socialconnect' doesn't appear in the list.
Suggestions? Thx, Carl

Its not working on 5.1.9 PL3
I am also new to this, so I dont know how to import XML files
I have uploaded the socialconnect folder to /core/packages/ and refreshed the page a few times and it is still not showing up

I have installed some other extensions and working fine, so I do know how to FTP to /core/packages/

It works in 5.1.10 no worries, but is sitting on top of the search bar.
I dont know much about code, so would like to be instructed on how to make it appear on the left of the search bar.
