Share Buttons Bar by BOP5 (Facebook Like, Twitter, Google+1, and more share options)

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (12 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 121
Released: 23 Aug 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 846
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations External Content  

This is the VB 3.8 version of my very popular "More Share Options" for VB4.

Since VB4 already had Facebook built in the mod was called "More Share Options." But since VB 3.8 (and earlier) do not have any share options built in the mod is called "Share Buttons Bar." but they do very much the same thing.

This mod will automatically add a bar to your navbar with many popular dedicated share buttons available including:
  • Facebook (Like/Recommend/Send)
  • Twitter Tweet
  • Digg
  • Google +1
  • Linked In
  • Stumble Upon
  • Add This (which contains hundreds of more sites!)

There are no other mods available on vBulletin.org with as many share options, nor a simple install-able product with no manual edits needed in most cases.

In the event you want to make manual template edits instructions are included on how to do so.

I am using this mod on my forum, http://www.juot.net/forums/ but only in threads and I have manually included it in my SHOWTHREAD template only. For a better idea of what this mod really looks like see the screenshot.

This mod will allow you to share any page of your forum including forumhome, forumdisplay, threads, social groups, calendars, albums, pictures, arcade games, blogs- any page that has the navbar on it can be shared. In this respect it is actually far more useful than my 4.x version.

All Share Buttons are set to load JavaScript Asynchronously so it will never slow down a page load!

I don't see it enabled at all anymore but it may be a conflict with your existing Facebook Like in the top right corner of the page. If you could try again and temp disable the top right button you could know for sure.

This is more just a question for the developer - I like this mod but am looking for something that adds these same options to postbit... ideally right up next to the post # and report this post icon. This way a user can share individual posts instead of entire threads. Is there something in the code base that makes this difficult? I ask because I have only found mods that allow you to share entire threads, and not individual posts. Figured since you wrote this mod you might have some insight on this question.

Thanks!

The reason I didn't make this to share individual posts is because I find threads as a whole to be more worthy of sharing than a specific post. If you share a post the point is for someone who has never been to your forum before to click on the link from Facebook and see it- I think a total "noob" to your forum is going to get confused if thrown into the middle of a thread- if they read from the start of a thread they have half a chance.

The other reason is between Facebook, Twitter, Google, and whatever else you are now using A LOT of screen real-estate for just share buttons already. Multiply that for every post and it's crazy IMO.

I'm not worried about the real estate - I have plenty of room where I'd like it to go. As for getting noobs confused, I'm not worried about that either. The people who would be sharing links are car guys, which will attract other car guys. In my forum's case, it makes sense, especially since some of our threads are very long and the best post of the thread can be buried. It would be great for people to be able to share buried replies that have great info. Would it be difficult, in your opinion, to modify one of these sharing add-ons so that it would work with each post?

If you were going to modify any you should start with my Pinterest Share mod. It already shows per post.

You would need to modify the template to add the Facebook and any other share buttons you want.

Pinterest requires URL Encoded URLs so you will need to modify the plugin too, grab the per-post URL before it is encoded, and make it part of the array that is registered to the template.

Finally you would move the template hook the mod creates to a suitable location in your postbit.

Then... wallah... facebook in every post.

Hi BoP5

Like this mod. I noticed your JUOT forums have them in the Thread Tools bar rather than below the navbar. Is that a modification that is applicable on 3.8.x or is that part of the vB4 mod only? I am running 3.8.5 and tried to do something similar to the showthread template without precision yet. Could you give me advice on how to edit it if applicable please?

It was a lot of trial and error, I don't remember the exact changes- I know I had to edit the whole row, not just the one box-

Here is code from my current SHOWTHREAD template from juot.net- feel free to try it:

thanks

I had a quick play around and decided on the row below. I'm using Facebook Connect plugin which is causing some errors to the FB like app as per the previous posts. Is there a work around for the 3.8.x version?

I've never used Facebook connect for VB 3.x- is there a specific error being returned? Can you check for a javascript error in your browser? (In Chrome right click-> View Element then click on the "Console" tab to see Javascript errors) - not sure how to do it in other browsers but I know there is a way.

Hello, just activated this mod and my users are happy!

Only one question, it doesn't show up on the vBadvancedCMPS-portal (v3.2.1)? Do I have to make any other changes? (vBulletin v3.8.1)

Sorry I don't have any experience trying to get this to work on VBA CMPS.

For my own site I just put the HTML Facebook (and the other sites) give me directly into a module and use them that way.
