  • [CMS] Share This

    Has anyone tried to incorporate Share This? www.sharethis.com

    We tried yesterday but ended up with a bunch of error codes. Any suggestions?

    I guess it depends on where you want to put it. I'm using something similar in my articles, example here ... http://pdaphonehome.com/content/177-...nes-watch.html

    I just inserted the code at the end of the article_rating_container div in the vbcms_content_article_page template.

      Post the codes up and it should narrow the problem down...

      FWIW: I recall it working for me under 3.8.
      I didn't bother adding it to vb4, I merely used the default Social Bookmarking Manager for Facebook, Twitter, Google, Live & My Yahoo!

        There is no default for this in the CMS articles. The approach I posted will work, as evidenced by the link.

            No problem. It is mind boggling that IB would put the social networking buttons into the forum and not the CMS. If anything, you'd expect it to be the other way around. Something this simple to add should be in by default.

                Thanks mccollin. Now I have another question for you. I noticed that you don't have the share button on your blog. Do you know how to incorporate it on to CMS's blog?

                  ShareThis Bookmark Buttons for Blogs

                  You need to place the ShareThis code in 2 places for Blogs.

                  First: Open your "blog_entry" Template.

                  1) This will make the buttons appear when someone is viewing the Blog as a list of several entries on the page:

                  Find this code - and add ShareThis code:
                  Code:
                  <dl class="blogcategory stats">
                  <dt class="shade">{vb:rawphrase categories}</dt>
                  <dd>{vb:raw blog.categorybits}</dd></dl>
                  </vb:if><span  class='st_facebook' >[COLOR=#ff0000]PLACE THE SHARETHIS BUTTON CODE HERE[/COLOR]</div>
                  Next: Open your "blog_show_entry" Template.

                  2) This will make the buttons appear when someone is viewing a single Blog entry:

                  Find this code - and add ShareThis code (again):


                  Code:
                  <dl class="blogcategory stats">
                  <dt class="shade">{vb:rawphrase categories}</dt>
                  <dd>{vb:raw blog.categorybits}</dd>
                  </dl></vb:if>[COLOR=#ff0000]PLACE THE SHARETHIS BUTTON CODE HERE[/COLOR]</div>
                  Result:
