2.3. Global Parameters

The next group of parameters you may alter consists of the global ones; global parameters are valid for all AddThis buttons and/or toolboxes that are displayed on a single web-page.

 

For all currently available AddThis services, as well as their Service Codes, check this updated services list.

 

  • The first subgroup of global parameters consists of the following:
    Screenshot - Parameters: Global #1
    1. In this field you may type in the Service Codes of the AddThis services (comma-separated), which you want to be displayed in the compact menu of the AddThis Button(s). Don't forget to include "more" in the list, so that your visitors have the option to choose any from the available services. If you leave empty some default services will be displayed instead. (default: empty)
    2. In this field you may type in the Service Codes of the AddThis services (comma-separated), which you want to appear in the expanded menu of the AddThis Button(s), which is displayed when the visitor hovers over/clicks with the mouse on the button. If you leave empty all available services will be displayed. (default: empty)
    3. Here you can type in a comma separated list with the services you want to exclude from all AddThis menus (both compact and expanded). (default: empty)
    4. If you choose "No" the standard AddThis CSS file will not be loaded, allowing you to style everything yourself without incurring the cost of an additonal load. (default: "Yes")
    5. If you choose "Yes", the visitors will be able to import their contacts from popular webmail services when using AddThis' email sharing. (default: "No")
    6. Select "Yes" to allow AddThis to append a variable to your URLs upon sharing. They will use this to track how many people come back to your content via links shared with AddThis. (default: "No")
    7. If you select "No", AddThis won't load the Flash-based analytics engine; some future reports will be affected. (default: "Yes")
    8. If you select "No", AddThis won't set any cookies at all; some future reports will be affected. (default: "Yes")
    9. Select "Yes" if you want to allow AddThis to track text that your users select and copy to their system clipboard. Always global. (default: "No") New feature of ValAddThis
    10. Select "Yes" if you want AddThis to send tracking events to Google, so you can have integrated reporting. Important note: this feature seems to be still in Public Beta. (default: "No") New feature of ValAddThis
    11. Optionally you may enter here the Google Analytics Property ID (generally a serial number of the form UA-xxxxxx-x). (default: empty) New feature of ValAddThis

       

  • The second subgroup of global parameters consists of the following:
    Screenshot - Parameters: Global #2
    1. Here you can change the header text color of the compact/expanded menu of AddThis. Enter the color code in hexadecimal number; example: FFCC12 (24-bit number). (default: empty)
    2. Here you can change the header background color of the compact/expanded menu; color code in 24-bit hexadecimal number as well. (default: empty)
    3. You can enter an optional brand name which will be displayed in the header of the compact/expanded menu. (default: empty)
    4. Optionally set the button's offset from top; value is defined in pixels and you can also use negative values. (default: empty)
    5. Optionally set the button's offset from left; value is defined in pixels and you can also use negative values. (default: empty)
    6. Direction of the compact menu; Choose "Standard" for browser free space based, or "Force up", "Force down" to force the menu appear in either direction. (default: "Standard")
    7. Optional delay, in milliseconds, before compact menu appears when mousing over a regular AddThis Button (max. value 500). (default: empty)
    8. If you select "Yes", all shares will open in a new pop-up window instead of a new tab or regular browser window. (default: "No") New feature of ValAddThis

hello and thanks for the great module!

But .... Everytime I make any changes to the 'custom' options for the toolbar I allways get the same thing; facebook, google, and the 'share' button. Using the services listed in the services directory doesn't seem to do anything. ...

I've tried everything and still no luck.

Thanks!

...Im using the like buttons in a blog environment with many articles displayed on one page ( and x instances of the like button.

the problem is that all buttons have the same result when i press it. They dont feature the content of that specific article but the description of the parent site..

The module isn't appropriate for article based bookmarking, it always reads the current page's URL. What you need is the ValAddThis plugin.


thx for your answer.

have a look here please: whalewatchingsydney.com.au/.../

its working in there, but not in the normal blog view. www.whalewatchingsydney.com.au/.../

i think it doesnt work from inside the blog component?

Thank you for that great extension, works fine! But I've got a problem with the alignment. Whatever I set it to - the toolbox will always show up on the left. I use the module in my footer with { loadposition }. Can you help me? :sad:
