    Social bookmarking Link to this post

    Hi!

    Maybe it would be a good idea to implement also something like http://www.social-bookmark-script.com/ for SilverStripe!?

    Just an idea

    Yeah Markus, it's one of the story cards assigned to me with the mashup module I'm Currently working on it. Hope to release it for test by end of next week.

    Here is a preview release of the ShareThis module, which enables automatically adding social bookmarking icons on SilverStripe sites.

    If you like to test the module download the attached file and extract it into your SS main directory and follow the instructions in README.

    Please send in your suggestions and bugs.

    Sorry seems like I cannot attach the zip file here...

    I'll add the module to SVN tomorrow with the help of Matt.

    Hi laktek,

    I just tried out sharethis and it looks really nice. Great job!

    There are two little issues I found:

    1. From http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/modules/sharethis/trunk/README

    4. Add the $ShareThis variable in your templates where you like to have the icons appear.

    4. You could enable the ShareThis icons for each page via the CMS (to enable Go to Behaviour Tab and select the ShareThis checkbox)


    I read this and thought that putting "$ShareThis" in the page was optional, however, I checked the "Show Share Icons in this page ?" checkbox, but the icons did not show up on the page until I added the $ShareThis variable to my template. Is this how it is supposed to work?

    2. Also, the code comment in _config.php seems to be incomplete:

    ShareIcons::$IconTransparent = true; //remove this if you want to make

    Cheers,

    Elijah

    Elijah,

    Thanks for your comments.
    1. Actually you will require to have $ShareThis variable in templates to display the icons. Checkbox in the CMS only allows you to on/off them pagewise.

    2. Edited the comment.

    Let me know if there is any other issues in the module.

    (P.S. - For future discussions about ShareThis module use this thread - http://www.silverstripe.com/modules-discussion/flat/3719)
