Quoting Maurice:
...It grabs the description metatext from the homepage, instead of the description from the article page..I also have no control of what image it grabs and shares...

ValAddThis has no control of what Facebook shares. The FB script reads your meta tags automatically. In order to control what is being shared you have to use OpenGraph tags: developers.facebook.com/.../...

ValAddThis is a GREAT plugin, however, a facebook recommend button, places an message on the fb timetime with the wrong text and the wrong image.

It grabs the description metatext from the homepage, instead of the description from the article page.

I also have no control of what image it grabs and shares.

Can this feature be added?

Hi! First of all, great plugin and easy to configure/customize. One question: is there any option for the vote/share buttons to share just the website address rather than the single article? I'm setting up a website and when clicked a share button (example Facebook "I Like"), it applied to the specific articles. Thanks beforehand for any help! :D

Quoting Horus68:
Good extension.
On the plugin screen you need to separate the different Button and Toolbox Parameters options in new lines. Its quite confusing to know what radio button chooses what.
Maybe simpler would be to choose services one by one in the Toolbox.

Data Track Linkback its off but a code its added to the URL shared to facebook (as in /index.php/a-rede-de-bibliotecas#.T516nMf-jso.facebook )

As it regards the options for the various Buttons/Quick Toolbox I haven't found a way to style it; J1.6+ uses a totally different way to display images that were embedded in the XML file. In J1.5 all look just fine. As I already mention in the documentation, use the screenshots found here as a guide.

The code that is appended at the end of the URL being shared is an issue of AddThis and not ValAddThis. This is the case for the services that are displayed by AddThis; most of the times it helps if you enter you personal AddThis ID in the corresponding configuration field.

Καλημέρα,

This plugin is not only great but is highly customizable.
The only problem i face is with twitter counter. It doesn't count +1 after tweeting.

I am using Joomla 1.7.3

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Valandis, thanks again for this great plugin.

I'm having some minor trouble with J2.5! though...
When I use the new built-in introtext/fulltext image options, the social bookmarking icons appear *below* the embedded image.
Maybe it's not even the plugin's fault, I don't know, just thought I'd mention it and hope for a fix.
Those included image options are very useful

The Very Best Social Web Module i have tried.

Easy install, configurable, good working, nice looking, speaks many languages.

I only suggest 1 thing, lets include all icon in 32px size too.

Facebook counter is hidden. If i have an option to the settings to change facebook width that would be a solution.
