2.5. AddThis Button Parameters

The next group of parameters consists of the AddThis Button specific ones; Button parameters are only valid for the AddThis buttons and they don't affect in any way the toolboxes.

 

The Button parameters are the following:
Screenshot - Parameters: Button

  1. Choose the type of the AddThis button. It can be a standard button for the Bookmarking services, a special button for the RSS feed services or a simple Email-only button. (default: Standard)
  2. Here you can choose the event that will trigger the display of the AddThis compact menu; it can be either when the visitor clicks on the button (Mouse click) or when the visitor hovers with the mouse over the button (Mouse over). Note that this applies only to a "Standard" type of button, since RSS-Feed and Email-only buttons work only when the visitor clicks on them. Important note: if you are about to use both button(s) and toolbox(es) on the same web-page don't set this parameter to "Mouse click", because it will hinder the function of some toolbox services! (default: "Mouse over")
  3. Choose if you want to use your own image for the AddThis button, or your own image with some text next to it, or just some text without any image at all. (default: "No")
  4. Choose one of the standard "AddThis" graphic buttons, which are already included in the module installation (in case you chose "No" on the above list). Important note: the images aren't displayed correctly after J1.6 due to changes in the CSS of the administration backend. Take this screenshot as a guide if you have difficulties. (default: "AddThis long")
  5. Optionally you can enter here the URL of your own image for the AddThis button. The URL can be either absolute or document-relative. For example if you had your custom button in your Joomla images folder "images/custom.jpg" you should enter here: images/custom.jpg, which is a document-relative URL. You may use one of the sample images inside the module folder: modules/valaddthis/images/add_to_fav_20.png (20px) or modules/valaddthis/images/add_to_fav_32.png (32px). (default: empty)
  6. Optionally enter the text that will be displayed next to your own image (or only the text itself). (default: empty)
  7. Optionally enter a CSS style for your custom text (only the attributes with their values like: text-decoration:none;). (default: empty)
  8. Optionally enter an "Alt" text for the AddThis image/text button. (default: empty)
  9. Type in the URL for your site's RSS feed, in case you chose for an RSS feed button; example: http://www.mysite.com/en/sitefeed.feed?type=rss. (default: empty)

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:
