Current Version: 3.2

More Share Options The Next Generation (v 3.0) is a complete rewrite of my "More Share Options" mod. If you are looking for the old version I am keeping it attached (More Share Options for VB4 by BOP5v261.zip) but it will no longer be updated or supported.

The purpose of the mod is to add additional share "buttons" (Besides Facebook Like) to vBulletin.

Demo: Practically every page of Qapla.com has the "Gold" version enabled.

There is GOLD Version with additional features available at:
http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...4-by-BOP5-GOLD

The FREE Version allows sharing to the following sites:
  • Facebook (Like OR Recommend with Send Button Option, and with old style "Share" option, Dark Option, Show Faces Option)
  • Twitter (Specify "Via" Username, Related Account, default hash tags, and language- With or without counts)
  • Google +1 (With or without count, option to use built in Facebook language or specify custom language)
  • Add This (Option to input publisher ID for analytics tracking, enable/disable printing, disable duplicate sites option)

The FREE Version also has the following Style Vars for basic styling:
  • Height of Share Bar (in Pixels)
  • Padding
  • Margins

The GOLD Version has all of the above PLUS the following additional share options:
  • Pinterest (With or without count, option to specify pinned image, better Pin It sharing button in Beta available for testing)
  • Digg (With count or icon only)
  • Linked In (With or without count)
  • StumbleUpon (Several options with/without counts)
  • Reddit (Several options with/without "points")
  • Custom Buttons (Add as many additional custom buttons as you want!)

The GOLD Version also has additional Style Vars for complete control of Share Bar Styling:
  • Background
  • Border

(Both FREE and GOLD can be completely customized by CSS as well if you prefer not to use Style Vars.)

Some of the major differences between More Share Options TNG and the Original Version:
  • Share Buttons now show on ALL pages, including pages by 3rd party applications like Arcades and Media Galleries.
  • Twitter Count Now WORKS
  • Table-less design (All formatting done via CSS/Style Vars)
  • Additional built-in Facebook and Twitter options
  • New options to disable by Usergroup and/or THIS_SCRIPT value (as well as by Forum and by Style)
  • Pinterest Now Integrated (Gold version only)


As with the prior version, fast loading Asynchronous JavaScript is used everywhere possible.

IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTICE!

If you are "upgrading" from an old version (any version less than 3.0) be aware this version (TNG) has been coded as a completely new and separate mod. It will NOT upgrade an old version.

I suggest if you run an old version of "More Share Options" you disable it via Product Manager in Admin CP.

Install and configure this new mod and make sure it works and you like it.

If you do like it then you can uninstall the old mod from Product Manager.

IMPORTANT - Some users have reported the new mod will not run until the old mod is uninstalled. If you have installed 3.0 and it is not running, please try uninstalling the old mod first.

VBSEO Compatibility:

UPDATE: It has been reported working with VBSEO!

Basically I have no idea how compatible this may be with VBSEO as I don't have access to a VBSEO enabled forum. If you use VBSEO be sure it works as designed (you can share pages.)

Test share 3 pages: The Forum Home, a Thread (showthread), and a Forum (forumdisplay) - if all 3 shares work I am confident the mod will work completely for you. I suggest you use Twitter or Facebook for your testing.

If you do run into VBSEO issues please post here and I will do my best to fix.

General Compatibility:
This has been tested as far back a VB 4.0.8 and as recent as VB 4.2.0. It is expected to work on all VB 4.x.x versions however if you have a very old version of VB please try the FREE version before purchasing the Gold to ensure compatibility. This is not compatible with VB 3.x.

As of version 3.2.0 there is a recommended manual file edit for those running VB 4.1.9 or below.

I really don't know... I doubt Facebook has staff to answer these questions. Do you have any kind of custom htaccess file? I was hoping the link above would have reminded you about something you setup that may be interfering.

I can't really think of any reason Facebook's spider is getting a 301 redirect when regular users do not except for a custom setting in htaccess or the server.

You may see if your host has an answer but I doubt they will.

I have an htaccess file. At the top of that file,there are these lines.
ErrorDocument 403 /403.shtml
ErrorDocument 404 /404.shtml
ErrorDocument 500 /500.shtml
ErrorDocument 400 /400.shtml
ErrorDocument 401 /401.shtml

I'm sorry if I asked you something wrong. I've no idea what to do.

You didn't ask anything wrong, I just have no idea what to do to fix it. If I ever figure it out I will post here.

What are the admin options for this please? Can you specify only on CMS for example? (Sorry if earlier in thread).

In the first post is a link to the full admin options:
http://www.qapla.com/mods/ss/msotng_admincp_free.jpg

Basically it is enabled by default on ALL pages. You can specify THIS_SCRIPT values to disable on specific pages.

If you ONLY wanted it on the CMS it would probably be easier to follow the instructions for the manual template edit and simply put the code inside a template conditional- such as:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So it only appears on the CMS and you don't have to enter 20 different THIS_SCRIPT values to literally disable them on every other page.

Updated to version 3.1.1. No real new feature but I updated the option in Admin CP when selecting styles to disable to a checkbox list instead of having to manually enter styleids.

Okay, well I'm having a little problem with it not showing once I log in to the forum. I wanted to see it in action so I registered on your forum. I asked about that problem there. I'll go ahead and install the updated version. I doubt it will solve the issue though!!

DO you have a customs style? Please give a link to your forum.

You can try it on the default style by doing the following:

To get the default style go to Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Add New Style and create a new style with no parent style. This will be the default style.

Then go to Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Style & Language Settings and give permission for users to change styles (if it was disabled) so you can change to the default style to test it.

My style is a style that I created based off the default style, but it has no parent style. I created the style the same way you mentioned above. I will try the Style & Language settings real quick. That may be what the problem is. In the meantime my site is http://www.place4musicians.com I'll post back shortly, because I have other styles that I might need to do the same thing to. Let me know if you need AdminCP access. I will PM you with the details.

Edit: I tested it. For some reason my default style doesn't look correct on header and footer, but I think that is because of some code changes that I made to disable it. However, I have the same issue where the mod does not show up once I'm logged in. I'll send you a PM to look at the site for me.

Thanks!

Edit 2: Very strange. I logged in as the user I sent you credentials for and the mod was working. For some reason I'm not able to view it as the owner of the Forum. I might have a setting set wrong in the AdminCP. I'm going to create a new user and see if they can view it.

The next version should fix this.

As a gust it is displaying fine as well.

Yes, I figured this part out. I have around 22 different ranks, which means in turn 22 different usergroups, even though only 1/2 of those are used. Let me give you an example:

My Usergroup is Admin. That is my primary usergroup.

Secondary Usergroups are: Musician, Guitar, and Vocals.

What I learned was that if I turned off permissions for secondary Usergroups, it would effect the primary Usergroup in the Mod. Maybe this could be fixed?

However, I still have one small problem. My Facebook Connect does not show when the mod is enabled, but if I disable it then it shows! I'm not sure about this, I'll double check my settings.

Yes I am realizing that if I give permissions to "disable" by usergroup I shouldn't factor in secondary groups.

I'm going to re-write the permissions to ENABLE by usergroup and will have the regular groups (registered users, mods, super-mods, admins) enabled by default but easily changed.

I have another big fix in the works for custom pages as well, I will bundle them both in the next update coming shortly (later today hopefully.)

I will take a look on your site about the Facebook connect- I confirm it works fine on my site with the mod enabled.

Updated to version 3.2.

If upgrading from below 3.2 you will have to redo the Usergroup permissions in the mod settings. I have changed it from disabling it for selected groups to enabling it for selected groups. (By default it is active for all standard usergroups except banned users (groups 1 - 7)).

Added a new plugin that will give better results when sharing custom pages via Facebook. This plugin requires a hook that was introduced in VB 4.1.10. If you are running an older version there us a new text file in the mod zip that tells you how to make 1 easy file edit if you want.
