This is my first released mod for vBulletin 5.

vBulletin 5 mods are completely different than VB 4.x and VB 3.x mods- they work different and are designed differently.

Be sure you read the install instructions in the README file before installing. You will need to upload files, after that the mod should auto-install. (Make sure the product/hook system is enabled.)

More Share Options FREE for VB5 brings the Facebook Like/Recommend/Send buttons, Twitter Tweet button, Google +1 button, and AddThis share button to vBuletin 5. AddThis, if you're not aware is a single button that allows content submission to HUNDREDS of social media sites including ALL the popular ones such as Digg, Pinterest, and even direct to email like Gmail.

This mod is essential to give users an easy way to share interesting threads, photos, and other content on your site with their friends and followers.

This is the FREE version.

The GOLD version is available on Qapla.com and has the following extra features-
  • Separate buttons for: Pinterest, Digg, Stumbleupon, Linked In, and Reddit
  • Ability to add new/custom buttons
  • Usergroup Permissions (Show only to specific usergroups)
  • Disable by forum (now called channels)
  • Disable by page (What would have been THIS_SCRIPT on VB4 is now page numbers)
  • Disable by Style

Live Demo: Here. (Demo is still VB4 version, very similar.)

If you have any questions, and I expect you will, feel free to ask them in this thread.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this. :)
Please Nominate It for MOTM if you like it. :D
Donations Always Appreciated! :up:

Nice work. So once you upload the files, is that it? It auto installs.

Yes, assuming the VB5 Product/Hook system is enabled... it's disabled by default (like it is in earlier VB versions.)

You have to enable it either by going to Manage Products in the Admin CP or the the product/hook settings in settings.

Then on the first front-end page load it installs, so you have to refresh/reload the page twice really to see it work as designed.

Most VB5 mods will probably auto-install, it's a fairly easy option for mod authors to setup...

Anyway to move the share bar under the thread title?

BirdOPrey5 20 Sep 2012 22:49

No not at this time... Because it's using a template hook from the header so it is always going to be above the title unless new template hooks are added.

Hey Joe, can you individually select which social sites to display ? i.e. all displayed but disable facebook ?

BirdOPrey5 21 Sep 2012 21:08

Yes in the mod settings you can enable disable each specific share button.

For example if you only wanted Twitter and +1 that is fine...

For Twitter and Google+1 you can also choose to show or not show the count if you enable them.

For Facebook you can choose between it saying "Like" or "Recommend" if enabled, and choose between standard count and box counts, and optionally enable the Send button as well, even choose light or dark buttons.

Awesome Joe, installed :D

Would be nice if the placement of the social icons is made into a module, that way you could drag it to areas of each individual page template (i.e. sidebar or above or below main content container etc) or create a new page template with social icon module in a preset position.

Or generate code wizard, so you could add the social icon html code to a new custom html module :)

Maybe... when I figure out how to make Modules. ;)

the wrong place to ask questions like this

you are asking a question about how products are installed through admincp
rather than this product itself

please ask questions likes this in

I can't speculate on why the VB5 developers did or did not do anything- I also don't believe the premise that VB5 was made to be more like WordPress.

VB5 is VB5... The way mods work now I suppose someone could build a mod that allowed admins to browse and download other mods in one step if all the coders were willing to follow specific patters for how their mods get saved and uploaded.

As was pointed out this particular thread about my one mod is not the place for a serious answer.
