Share Buttons for Social Media

Unread postby ArgyrosfeniX » Tue Feb 09, 2016 11:03 pm

Hello Everyone!

As some of you have noticed, there are now buttons at the bottom of the initial topic to share that topic on various social media outlets.

There is a setting in the Administration area that allows for either Topic sharing, or Post sharing. So you could either share an entire topic with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, etc. OR You could share individual posts with them instead.

Example:
  • TOPIC = Share the overall topic of the "What to read while waiting for the next PS Power book".

    OR

  • POST = Sharing a post of yours or a friend's within that Topic, such as a post about [author name withheld]'s newest novel.

So! The choice is now being given to you as to which you feel fulfills your needs here at the Forum.

Vote wisely... :ugeek:

Well, is both possible?
Smaller Topics I would choose the Topic, the example Topic "What to read..." is to big IMHO and I would choose specific posts...

IF really only one is possible, POST's

The setting is a toggle in the back. Either one or the other.

Basically, with the Topics version, you get the buttons only on the first post. With the Post version, there are buttons on every post.

Personally, I can see it both ways. Wanting to share a small segment for a large topic vs having to look at all those colorful buttons on every. single. post.
