[Free module] Social network links (facebook + twitter + youtube + google + other)

Recommended Posts

Tested with 1.5.4.1 and it works well. Thats a nice module. Works well. I like how it is possible to set the module's location through the module's settings page.

Thank you

Yes I do. I just didn't want to impose anything :-)

  • Be able to add a new unique link. Or just have more builtin social networks like Pinterest, LinkedIn, Orkut, Vkontakte, etc.
  • I would love to see a Bookmark and Print options.
  • Option to have text shown next to, or below, the icon.
  • Option to choose the icons (upload two icons for before and after hover).
  • Be able to display a different set of icons/links when displaying the module in different location (header/product/footer). For example, In the footer Facebook and Twitter, in Header FB, Twitter, print, bookmark, and in product section only facebook.

On a similar note, what is the chance to see a social module that has the option to have Facebook, Twitter, +Google, Pinterest, Like, share, connect, +1, etc buttons instead of just links? I was thinking of a module that has the image link to the social network like facebook, but on hover the selection expands and there is a choice to Like, Share, Connect. Well, enough dreaming about the hard far future.

 

Thank you for a great module :-)

Greetings,

 

Really enjoying this module. Thanks for your hard work!

 

You asked for suggestions about new features for this addon... Pinterest is turning out to be a great place for owners of ecommerce shops. Yelp is also an important social site. Would like to see these two added if possible.

When you say that the module has been updated, does that mean the update will be pushed from the backoffice? Or a fresh download/install has to be done?

 

Also, the backoffice shows Odnaklassniki but its Odnoklassniki .

 

Thanks

you have to download and upload module once again

 

Hi,

it is but probably only after modification.

go to the modules > positions and move social network buttons module in the "displayTop" modules list to top. (it must be first on the list)

I just thought about another feature you might want to add. Different layout styles. So right now you have only one, but maybe you can add the option to choose different buttons/styles?

For example, SexyBookMarks looked nice and it was kinda like a bar and onHover it pop up the button.

-Cheers

 

Also, If I want to add text to the module in the tpl file, what should I write in the mod portion of it?

i.e.

[/size]
<h2 class="title_block">{l s='My Title' mod='????'}</h2>

as far as i know the sexybookmarks use only one button style

 

if you want add ownt text to the module just add it with:

{l s='your text' mod='socialnetworklinks'}

thanks, im really happy that you like it, have you got any suggestion about new features for this addon?

 

I think this is an absolutely fantastic little module. It appears so simple, yet is actually really versatile and with some CSS manipulation, I'm using it in my current project to replace the top horizontal menu entirely.

 

If had to offer a suggestion for new features, I would suggest some way that users could add in additional sites from the back office. Or alternatively that users could amend the list of websites for themselves. I did try because the version I was working on only had 8 sites and I needed 9, but I couldn't make it work, and then you produced your latest version with 11 sites and hey presto! If it had these facilities I would be prepared to pay for this addon.

 

It is simply too good a module to be free!

you can read this tut (it is based on 1.4) but the way to install is exactly the same as in 1.5:

how to install prestashop module

 

then go to the modules tab, search for "social network links" module and click on "configure" button:

you will be able to define own urls and to select social buttons there

Afternoon Vekia, appreciate the great work. I have a suggestion for this module. Not every icon that comes up on the home page is known, is there a way to when the mouse hovers over the icon and it does its animation to say what the site is...like when your mouse hovers over the facebook icon, a small window comes up saying "facebook"..

 

Thanks Vekia
