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.

hi !

can anyone specify where is the template located,

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);

      Hey folks,
      for a module (a pagebuilder based on PageTable) I need to save some settings as JSON. The values are saved for each page table item (a pw page). It's working well, but I am looking for ways to improve the structure I have. As I'm not that experienced with JSON, maybe someone more experienced can take a look and tell me if my approach is good practice. 

      My goal is to make all the items accessible by page id, without looping over them (using objects instead of arrays):
      // access from template with pw page var $jsonObject->items->{$page}->cssClass; Her is an example of my JSON structure:
      { "items": { "3252": { "id": "3252", "cssClass": "pgrid-main", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "auto", "grid-row-end": "auto", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "60px", "padding-right": "60px", "padding-top": "60px", "padding-bottom": "60px", "background-color": "rgb(255, 255, 255)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3686": { "id": "3686", "cssClass": "test_global", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "-1", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "1", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3687": { "id": "3687", "cssClass": "block_editor-3687", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3696": { "id": "3696", "cssClass": "block_editor-3696", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } } }, "breakpointActive": "base", "breakpointActiveSize": "@media (min-width: 576px)" }

      Fieldtype Page Table Grid
      This is a sneak preview of a side project I've been working on for quite some time now. A lot of work and thought has gone into this, so I will most likely release this as a commercial module at some point in the near future. 

      As a designer (and developer) I get the appeal of a WYSIWYG editor. After playing around with some WYSIWYG page builder tools, I always felt something was wrong about them. So I decided to build my own PW version based on PageTable.

      Here is a small demo (using AdminThemeCanvas, but its working with other admin themes as well) :
      There is also a complete website that I built for a friend of mine using this module and some custom blocks.
      Concept
      This fieldtype shares a lot of features with PageTableExtended: it's also an extension of PageTable and renders the block templates in the backend and frontend (native PW templates and fields). You can also add your own css via module settings.
      The difference is, this fieldtype also gives you the ability to rearrange and resize elements in a visual way as well as enable inline editing for text, ckeditor and file fields. Similar (and promising) attempts have been made, but I wanted something based on native CSS grid instead of a CSS framework...so I built my own version. Most CSS frameworks are based on flexbox, which is great for layouting elements horizontally. With CSS grid, you can place elements horizontally and vertically, allowing for layouts that were not previously possible with CSS. Similar to webflow, this fieldtype uses javascript (in the backend) to let you manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them). It should still be possible to include a CSS framework if you like (just add the classes to your block markup and include the CSS via module settings).
      The CSS grid layout manipulations are saved in a single field as a JSON array and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you simply include in your main template (no inline styles). The styles are saved within the breakpoint you select and cascade down to smaller breakpoints. That means you can specify just the basic breakpoint and adjust other breakpoints if needed. The exception is the mobile breakpoint which will display everything in one column as a default (you can change the layout here too).
      The fieldtype also comes with an optional style panel to manipulate some additional CSS properties directly on the page. You can customize the panel or disable it completely from the module settings (and just use a CSS file that you include via module settings). The style panel is based on inputfields (nothing is saved to the database). This means that you just have to install the module and all fields are available to all blocks automatically (this can be customized). It also has the benefit that your installation is not flooded with fields; this module only installs one field.
      Don't want to give your customer all that power? Design features can be disabled for certain roles. The grid editor role can just edit the content and use the inline editing feature to edit content quickly. You can then also grant access individually to the style panel, resize or drag functionality.
      Features
      Blocks are just pages Blocks are defined by native PW templates and fields Manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them) Design features can be disabled for certain roles Inline editing of text, ckeditor and file fields The layout is 100% CSS grid (very small css file size) Simply drag and resize to manipulate grid items directly inside the backend Manipulate grid columns and rows directly on the page (use any number of columns you want) All style manipulations are saved as JSON and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you just include in your main template (no inline styles) Nested groups/grids (child pages of nested blocks are created under group parent) Global blocks work with page reference field (changes on one page, changes all blocks on all pages) Manual and auto placement of grid items Define custom icons for your blocks via native template settings (template -> advanced -> icon) Option to load lazysizes in the backend to enable lazy loading of assets with class lazyload Works with all default and ui-kit based admin themes If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.

      I built this module because I needed a versatile solution to replace tags and simple if-blocks in some E-Mails and PDF documents.
      If you only need to replace static tags (no if-conditions), then you can use default PW api and need no module:
      $str = "My favourite color is {color}."; $texttools = $sanitizer->getTextTools(); echo $texttools->populatePlaceholders($str, ['color' => 'red']); // output: My favourite color is red. Usage:
      See the two example Files in the folder /replacements

       
      Methods:
      replacementsTable()
      Renders an overview of all available replacements (see the example in the Module's config file:
       
      Create new Replacements:
      Simply copy the sample file and adopt to your needs.

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      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.

      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 (please contact me via PM).
       
      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:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that?
