MarkupSocialShareButtons

Recommended Posts

Hi Soma !

I saw in theme.php file.

* Alternatively from the API you can set a theme by using method ->setTheme(themename)
 * i.e. $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->setTheme("round")->render();
 *
 * To create your own create a file with the content of this file somewhere in your site/templates/ folder
 * This would be a subfolder, and in there a file "theme.php".
 *
 * Now you can enter the path relative from "site/templates" in the module config
 *   $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->setTheme("mythemes/mytheme")->render();

I guess I misunderstood this instruction !

Ah, thanks for the hint. I see now this is s leftover from a earlier version and forgot to change it there.

You're welcome !

I think that I found the new instruction :

echo $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->render(array("theme" => "templates/mythemes/mytheme");

I'm gonna try it !

Updated module today to 1.0.3 with a small fix

- where the markup would break if there's not encoded single quotes in title or texts for linkedin and twitter. It's now using htmlspecialchars_decode() and rawurlencode().

Great module. Love the config options (using FontAwesome).

I've added two custom fields so i can add some more information (event start/end dates).
Probably something for the next update?

thanks!

hey Soma, thanks for this, it's working really well for a project i'm doing right now!

I ended up needing to add some classes to the outer wrapper...(the buttons are in a share button which opens a menu)..

i was wondering if you might consider adding a config option at some point for outer wrapper class, if you think that may be of use to others.

Outer wrapper? There's none, just an UL

So what I do if needed is like:

echo "<div class='wrapper'>";
echo $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->render();
echo "</div>";

thx - right, but in my case i needed the class on the UL; i could fiddle with the CSS and see about adding those classes one level up as a wrapper like you have..

I see, I'll maybe have a look into but will maybe take some time. It's always a lot of work update a module with readme etc, but will put on my list.

For now I think a better approach would then be this to replace the UL wrapper class, "MarkupSocialShareButtons", with your own class or extend it:

 
$content .= str_replace("MarkupSocialShareButtons cf", "myClasses", $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->render());

yeah, this is totally fine with me (didn't think of doing it this way.)... leave the module!

Hi Soma,

great module!

But i have a problem with the facebook share button:
I want sometimes not the first but the second image to be shared on facebook.
Where can i define which image will be transferred to facebook?

Or is this managed by og-tags?
 

Thanks!!!

It is definitely managed by OG tags - if you have the correct meta then FB will use your specified OG image, otherwise it will search for and use the first image.

here is an example

<meta property='og:title' content='###' />
<meta property='og:type' content='website' />
<meta property='og:site_name' content='###' />
<meta property='og:locale' content='en_US' />
<meta property='og:url' content='http://www.website.com/' />
<meta property='og:description' content='###' />
<meta property='og:image' content='http://www.website.com/site/assets/files/####/image.1200x630.jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:url' content='http://www.website.com/site/assets/files/####/image.1200x630.jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:type' content='jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:width' content='1200' />
<meta property='og:image:height' content='630' />

<meta property='og:image:type' content='jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:width' content='1200' />
<meta property='og:image:height' content='630' />

 

I used the Markup SEO modul         side by side with this module.
The seo module creates die og tags automatically (and left the og:image was always blank).

I solved it by putting the og tags manually in my head.inc and fill it with:

<meta property="og:image" content="<?php echo 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$page->myimage2->url; ?>" />
<meta property="og:image:width" content="<?php echo $page->myimage->width; ?>" />
<meta property="og:image:height" content="<?php echo $page->myimage->height; ?>" />

That works well!

Thanks an best regards!

@Soma

Using this for the first and it's awesomely flexible - thank you!

One problem is that some of the $option parameters aren't correctly overriding the defaults. So far I know that these two don't, but there might be others:

outer_wrapper_tag
item_wrapper_tag

The other suggestion I have is an option (or maybe it should just be the default) is to use the full http url to the icon images. I know this can be adjusted in the theme.php file, but it means you need a custom theme to make this work. The reason I want this is for inserting the icons into an outgoing email.

Thanks.

i feel it irritated to do

$content .= str_replace("MarkupSocialShareButtons cf", "myClasses", $modules->MarkupSocialShareButtons->render());

also i need to add other elements across the output?

it would be cool if the classes were a field in the module config, so you could add or change them

I think its better to have a tpl, so its easier to redo it manually with repeaters and a single php

Hi, I can't understand why this happens:

Ex Facebook:

I tried to post the link on the facebook page and form there I can see Title, Description and the image. But If use the share button this doesn't work in the same way.

This is my options chosen for facebook:

  • ?url={url} --> I see only the link (this is correct)
  • ?url={url}&title={title}&text={text}&media={media}   -->  I see only the link

Ugual for Pinterest and for twitter not take any image.

  • Pinterest  -->  ?media={media}&url={url}&description={text}
  • Twitter --> ?url={url}&title={title}&text={text}&media={media}

 

I  try to set the {media} for take the field where is my image but probably I set it wrong.

How I can do ?

Hi everyone!

How I can set correctly the media={media} ? Because at moment no social uploads any image, ex: on Pinterest the html output miss the SRC attribute

to try to set the media I try to use my image filed but doesn't work. I try in the module and also in the backend. But the page load a src={my_filed}.

Any Idea? What I can do?

Thank you

@MarcoPLY,

I've never tried the media={media} parameter;

But in general the way this works is you have to have the correct markup on the page itself, meaning valid og tags and twitter card in the header. Maybe you already know this and are trying to override, but if not....

<meta property='og:image' content='bsolute/link/to/image.jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:url' content='absolute/link/to/image.jpg' />
<meta property='og:image:type' content='png' />
<meta property='og:image:width' content='1200' />
<meta property='og:image:height' content='630' />
<meta name='twitter:card' content='summary_large_image' />
<meta name='twitter:site' content='your-twitter-handle' />
<meta name='twitter:title' content='Page Title' />
<meta name='twitter:description' content='Some description' />
<meta name='twitter:creator' content='your-twitter-handle' />
<meta name='twitter:image:src' content='absolute/link/to/image.jpg' />

"media" can (as any) or must be set by the options array you give the render() method.

$options = array(
	"media" => $page->image->httpUrl()
);
echo $modules->MarkupSociaShareButtons->render($options);

      Some time ago I created a site profile for creation of a REST API with ProcessWire. Since I kept struggeling with updating stuff between different projects which use this, I decided to convert it into a module. It is now ready for testing: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApi
      Additionally I added a few small features:
      automatic creation of JWT Secret at module install routes can be flagged as auth: false, which makes them publicly accessible even though JWT Auth is activated in module settings To check things out, download and install the module and check the folder /site/api for examples.
      If you find any bugs or can think of improvements, please let me know!

      Sites Manager
       
      16 September 2018:
      FOR NOW, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS MODULE IN A PRODUCTION SITE. A  RECENT ProcessWire UPDATE HAS BROKEN THE MODULE. I AM WORKING ON A FIX.
       
      ################
       
      Sites Manager is a module for ProcessWire that allows Superusers to easily create/install ProcessWire sites on the same serverspace the module is running in. Only Superusers can use the module. You can create both stand-alone and multi-sites.
       
      Single/Stand-alone Sites
      Stand-alone or single-sites are sites that will run in their own document root/directory with their own wire and site folders, .htaccess, index.php, etc. In other words, a normal ProcessWire site.
      Multiple Sites
      Multi-sites are sites that will run off one wire folder (shared amongst two or more sites) each having their own site folder and database. In this regard, it is important to note that Sites Manager is not in itself a multiple sites solution! Rather, it is a utility that helps you create multi-sites to be run using the ProcessWire core multiple sites feature. For more on this core feature, see the official ProcessWire documentation, specifically the solution referred to as Option #1.
      Option #1 approach requires the site admin to initially install ProcessWire in a temporary directory for each new site. The directory then needs to be renamed as site-xxx, where ‘xxx’ is any name you want to use to differentiate the installation from other sites, before it is moved to the webroot. For instance, site-mysite, site-another, site-whatever. In addition, the /wire/index.config.php file must be copied/moved to the webroot. Each time a site is added, the index.config.php has to be edited to add ‘domain’ => ‘site-directory’ key=>value pairs for the site. This process can become a bit tedious. This module aims to automate the whole multi-site site creation process.
      The module is based off the official ProcessWire installer. Creating a site is as simple as completing and submitting a single form! You also have the option to type and paste values or reuse a pre-defined install configuration.
       
      The module will:
      Install a ProcessWire site in your named directory, applying chmod values as specified
      Move the directory to your webroot
      Update/Create a Superuser account as per the submitted form, including setting the desired admin theme and colour
      For multi sites, update sites.json (used by index.config.php to get array of installed sites)
       
      For multi sites, the only difference in relation to the core multi-sites index.config.php is that this file is slightly different from the one that ships with ProcessWire.
      Download from GitHub: Sites Manager (Beta Release)
      Features
      Install unlimited number of sites in one (multi-sites) or independent (single-site) ProcessWire installs. Install by completing a Form, Typing or pasting in configurations or using pre-created install configurations. Choose an Admin Theme to auto-install along with the site installation. For single-sites installation, download, save and reuse ProcessWire versions of your choice. Install and maintain site profiles for reuse to create other sites. Create install configurations to speed up installation tasks. Client and server-side validation of site creation values. Edit uploaded profiles (e.g., replace profile file). Lock installed sites, configurations and profiles to prevent editing. Bulk delete items such as site profiles, installed site directories and/or databases (confirmation required for latter two). View important site details (admin login, chmod, etc). Links to installed sites home and admin pages. Timezones auto-complete/-suggest. Pre-requisites, Installation & Usage
      Please see the documentation.
      Technicalities/Issues
      Only Superusers can use the module.
      ProcessWire 2.7 - 3.x compatible
      Currently using ProcessWire 2.7 installer (install.php)
      For multi-sites, potential race condition when sites.json is being updated on a new site install vs. index.config.php accessing the json file?
      Not tested with sub-directory installs (for instance localhost/pw/my-site-here/)
      Currently not doing the extra/experimental database stuff (database charset and engine)
      Future Possibilities
      Install specified modules along with the ProcessWire install
      Profile previews?
      Credits
      @ryan: for the ProcessWire installer
      @abdus: for the index.config.php reading from JSON idea
      @swampmusic: for the challenge
      Video Demo
      Demo  showing how quick module works on a remote server [YMMV!]. Video shows downloading and processing two versions of ProcessWire (~takes 7 seconds) and installing a single/stand-alone ProcessWire 3 site using the new Admin Theme UI Kit (~2 seconds) on a remote server.

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. Unpublished and hidden pages are indicated in the dropdowns with similar styling to that used in Page List. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by italics with a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. If the current user is allowed to add new pages under the parent page an "Add New" link is shown at the bottom of the breadcrumb dropdown. If the currently edited page has children or the user may add children, a caret at the end of the breadcrumbs reveals a dropdown of up to the first 25 children and/or an "Add New" link. Overriding the listed siblings for a page
      If you want to override the siblings that are listed in the dropdowns you can hook the BreadcrumbDropdowns::getSiblingsmethod and change the returned PageArray. For most use cases this won't be necessary.
      Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Contribute:
      You can contribute to the development of this and other modules or just say thank you by
      testing, reporting issues and making PRs at gitlab liking this post buying me a drink: paypal.me/baumrock/5 liking my facebook page: facebook.com/baumrock hiring me for pw work: baumrock.com  
      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support for 60€ per hour (excl vat).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

    • By Ken Muldrew
      I'm trying to get a short routine to run once per day that will look at some pages and send a reminder email when that customer's subscription (yearly) is about to expire. When I run the code in a template then it works without issue, but inside my lazycron service routine, I get an "Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get() on null" as if the database cannot be found. My autoload module is just the sample HelloWorld module included with ProcessWire, editted to perform this task. The whole of it is included below (I've stripped out the code that generates the email because it never gets past $pages->find):
       
      <?php namespace ProcessWire;
      /**
       * ProcessWire 'LazyCronLoad'  module
       *
       */
      class LazyCronLoad extends WireData implements Module {
          public static function getModuleInfo() {
              return array(
                  'title' => 'LazyCronLoad', 
                  'version' => 1, 
                  'summary' => 'Just loads a lazy cron callback.',
                  'singular' => true, 
                  'autoload' => true, 
                  );
          }
          public function init() {
              // initialize the hook in the AutoLoad module
              $this->addHook('LazyCron::everyDay', $this, 'myHook');
              
          }
          public function myHook(HookEvent $e) {
              // called once per day
              wire('log')->save('user_activities',' lazy cron service routine');
                  $transport_pages = $pages->find("template=aggregate-entry, aggregate_type.title='Transport'");
                  foreach ($transport_pages as $page) {
                      if (($page->purchase_date + 30325800 < time()) && ($page->purchase_date + 30412600 > time())) { // between 351 and 352 days
                          wire('log')->save('user_activities', $page->id . ' email reminder sent');
                          // send email
                  }
              }
          }        
          
      }
      The first wire('log') shows up but the second one doesn't (the purchase_date condition is met (as demonstrated by running the code in a template close in time to when the lazycron routine executes)). The error log gives the Uncaught Error shown above. 
      I think this is a beginner's mistake with something obvious being missed and would be grateful for any assistance in fixing it.
