Scott threw the facebook like button, so I'll see if he has time to do the tweetie thingy.

Ok, Scott uses tweetmeme so he can quickly sneak that in.

cool -- is it tied to the original TOPIC url (1st post) and not the current URL (paging, specific post) ?

not a biggie, because the basics are there anyway. i'd assume some peeps would alter the FB include to different button types etc..

same for the tweetmeme look too.

great stuff! smile

Like the Facebook option smile That could drum up members for our board. What about fixing the Black and Gold skin under Chrome? grin

It is tied to the first post & the title of the shared link is the original topic subject.

I've actually changed from using tweetmeme to the twitter button. It's more consistent with the facebook button. Meaning, both have the counter on the right side of the button.

Looks like we just need to put in an option to change the suggested user to follow, after you submit a tweet, so that can be changed in the config file and we should be good.

Okay is this a problem related to 7.5.6?
I see a recent post in the ubb6 forum.
https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/u...n_you_create_modificatio.html#Post238727
By Rick.
When I select it I get a error that there is a problem.
"There was a problem looking up this post in our database. "
Or is this a index issue with something deleted?

Shouldn't the "Like" button be on the category pages and the forum index? I mean, I should be able to like the forum altogether! lol

i put that stuff in a custom island on a column that never gets turned off, since it's more global in nature.

We'll have more options in for version 8. Don't want to spend any more time on the current version, as getting version 8 out is still our primary goal wink

I may have missed it, but does the new Facebook "like" integration in 7.5.6 already feature all of the Open Graph protocol code?

Yes, but they are disabled by default. Go into the Control Panel -> Display Options -> Topic Display options to enable them.

Did that and tried the Twitter and boy did it work well! What about the Facebook link, is it supposed to just show you like it or is it supposed to be able to be linked to the posters Facebook page?

I haven't done the upgrade yet, but that raises a question: can FB part be configured to like/post/whatever to a managed page vs. my personal page?

I've been looking for that myself, and I'm not too sure at this point, but haven't found anything yet.

This is controlled by facebook, but you can alter the showflat template and request the dark scheme I believe. Line 142 of templates/default/showflat.tpl you'll see the line that generates the facebook button. On that line you'll see ...colorschema=light&... Change the light to dark

I notice that it's following my trail around the forum. I take it that it's checking Fakebook whenever a topic is viewed to see if registers a match?

It seems to really pick up when a topic is "liked".
