Thanks for this great plugin! I’m using it on my site and it works well.
Thanks again for a great tool! - Adam
I’ve thought about that too, but the problem is that it is a plugin in it’s current state and as far as I know it’s not possible to create a specific page with a plugin.
I’ll give it a try.
Re: the accessibility issue - there is a potential easy fix which works as far as I know.
In the plugin, about line 228, add a default URL to the link:
<a href="/site-help/social-networking/" onclick="share_this_show(\\'' . $article_id . '\\', \\'' . $orientation .'\\', \\'' . $url . '\\', \\'' . $title . '\\', \\'' . $bodytext . '\\'); return false;" title="E-mail this, post to del.icio.us, etc." class="share_this_link" id="share_this_link_' . $article_id . '">' . $linktext . '</a>
This could work, what do you think?
One problem I’ve had with this plugin is getting my pages to validate when I include it on a page with multiple entries. It’s because div ids are supposed to be unique and they end up repeating themselves when the plugin is used on a multi-entry page.
Any thoughts on how to correct this?
yes this only seems compatible with pages containing only one entry.
i believe it involves generating IDs that are unique to each entry (appending entry_id to it, for example) and then styling the layout using classes rather than ID’s in the css.
i have to imagine that many people want to enable sharing on pages with more than one entry… so if someone has a solution out there, let me know.
Issue of Blank Email-To_Friend Tab
Hello all on this thread of the Share This plugin.
I know some time has elapsed here since this thread was discussed, but I have just installed the plugin and have everything working … except the Email_To_Friend tab… it is blank.
I am running EE 1.6.7.
Is there a solution on the blank Email tab ?
Thank you in advance.
Just FYI, all of this functionality can be had with very minimal effort by grabbing the ShareThis script from http://sharethis.com/. No need to code up new templates or use EE’s built-in Tell-A-Friend form. Just in case anyone’s looking for a simpler route.
I use the ShareThis service all the time on client sites, and it works great.
For using it on multi-entry pages, see this thread: http://ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/66212/
