Social It Plugin for bbPress

I am glad to announce my first plugin for bbPress, which is Social It. Social It adds a (X)HTML compliant list of social bookmarks below the first post in your forum topics. You can also use it manually and insert it anywhere on your forum.

Download: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/social-it/

You have a variety of options to choose from, or to customize the output. The plugin can add the following social bookmarks:

  • Twitter
  • Digg
  • Delicious
  • StumpleUpon
  • Reddit
  • Diigo
  • YahooBuzz
  • Technorati
  • Mixx
  • Facebook
  • Myspace
  • DesignFloat
  • GoogleBookmarks
  • Blinklist
  • Script & Style
  • LinkedIn
  • Newsvine
  • Devmarks
  • Mister Wrong
  • Izeby
  • Tipd
  • Friendfeed
  • BlogMarks
  • Twittley

If you do not find your favourite bookmarking site here, please contact me here.

The plugin can also shorten your permalinks automatically, and gives you a variety of short-urleners to choose from. Moreover, the bookmarks can also be inserted into the feed.

This plugin is inspired from the SexyBookmarks plugin for WordPress made by Josh & Norman. It is also compatible with Support Forum plugin Made by Aditya Naik & Sam Bauers.

Please do not forget to donate for the plugin.

  1. I don’t see any icon in the backend, just a list of checkboxes. Same for background or any other image.

    Checked in firebug, I don’t even see a reference to the picture in HTML, neither in the CSS. Actually, your CSS is not even loaded.
    Or better, is on the HTML, but looks like the address is wrong, even thoug, Ishould admit, looks right to me.
    Trying to open directly the file, I get a 404 error:
    http://inolanda.info/forum/my-plugins/social-it/c

    The file should be indeed there: I’ve checked.

  2. Hi, I downloaded today your Social It plug-in to my brand new bbpres installation, I only see the Enabled Networks and Twitter Options in the settings page, less than half the settings from the screenshot!
    I reinstalled several times, chmoded with 777 on ALL files, even the bbpress ones.
    Bbpress works fine, and your 33 icons show on every message, but I cannot use the settings page to disable most of them (no save button) and all the other great settings from the screen

  3. Here’s the screen shot of the settings page, and that’s the whole settings page, there’s no scroll bar or anything else.
    http://www.efoam.co.uk/forum/Social-it.png

    I’ve chmoded everything to 777, the forum & other plugins work fine.
    Social it works fine on the forum pages, albeit with all icons.
    The problem is accessing all the settings and making them work. When I untick any of the icons there is no save button (even by pressing enter) so the untick is not saved.

    Please help.

      Everything seems fine, except that the admin settings page is not being shown.
      Try disabling other plugins you have installed.
      Or, if you can send me the admin and user password, I will see that myself. Please use contact form to contact me.

    • and when I rollover the icons in the forum I get this code behind them also…

      Not Found

      The requested URL /create.php was not found on this server.

      Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

      That problem might be because of the Short URL service you are using, just change it with some other service.

  4. I tried that it seems that its a problem with PHP5, as I’m researching, and has to do with the code of

    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘snip’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-snip’];

    and all the others!

    Not Found

    The requested URL /create.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    ” rel=”nofollow” class=”external” title=”Tweet This

    That is shown in the forum area, which no big deal on this one I can fix later…..

    However my other issue is the admin panel, I don’t see all of the admin panel, I only see Enabled Networks
    and Twitter Options in the settings page, after viewing the source I got the error

    Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /home/ripperbu/public_html/osf/forum/my-plugins/social-it/functions.php on line 370

    Which is <input type="text" id="shortyapiuser-bitly" name="shortyapiuser-bitly" value="” />

    Which in my research is a issue in PHP 5 about the $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘bitly’][‘user’];

    So this is not just effecting 310 and down about 10-15 lines but also effecting

    /* Short URLs */
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘snip’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-snip’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘snip’][‘user’] = $_POST[‘shortyapiuser-snip’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘snip’][‘key’] = $_POST[‘shortyapikey-snip’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘bitly’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-bitly’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘bitly’][‘user’] = $_POST[‘shortyapiuser-bitly’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘bitly’][‘key’] = $_POST[‘shortyapikey-bitly’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘supr’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-supr’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘supr’][‘login’] = $_POST[‘shortyapiuser-supr’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘supr’][‘key’] = $_POST[‘shortyapikey-supr’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘trim’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-trim’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘trim’][‘login’] = $_POST[‘shortyapiuser-trim’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘trim’][‘pass’] = $_POST[‘shortyapipass-trim’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘tinyarrow’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-tinyarrow’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘tinyarrow’][‘login’] = $_POST[‘shortyapiuser-tinyarrow’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘cligs’][‘chk’] = $_POST[‘shortyapichk-cligs’];
    $socialit_plugopts[‘shortyapi’][‘cligs’][‘key’] = $_POST[‘shortyapikey-cligs’];
    /* Short URLs End */

    As I commented the 310 and down and the admin panel shows all but it will not save because of the above posted information. I have msn, if you want to get me on there I will be glad to talk more and give you my information for everything to the site if you don’t understand what I’m saying!
