Social Traffic Pop v2.0

The new 2.0 versions of Facebook Traffic Pop have been a real hit! They brought a ton of new functionality and some solid bug fixes to an already great platform making the original Facebook Traffic Pop even better. It’s time to bring all of those upgrades to Social Traffic Pop.

The new versions of Social Traffic Pop will be released later this month with all kinds of new features like page locking, popup centering, popup scrolling, popup dealys etc. as well as an all new Social Traffic Pop PRO for WordPress users that will give you control like never before. However, I will be keeping the details on the PRO version under wraps for now :D

Look for the updates to hit CodeCanyon later this month as free upgrades for current buyers as usual.

Facebook Traffic Pop PRO

I have gotten a ton of requests from the buyers of Facebook Taffic Pop for WordPress about adding advanced features into the script. I have taken manny of them into consideration and added in some great stuff I came up with a long the way that makes the script much easier to manage, and allows it to work with a wider array of WordPress sites that use a lot of Facebook / social plugins.

First off, and this was a big request, selective page use. Facebook Traffic Pop PRO allows you to enable / disable support for the homepage and also includes a new “Page Selector” feature. This allows you to enter the ID of any page, post, or other taxonomy into the select and then decide how the script should use those pages by either allow the popup to run only on those pages, or all pages on the site except for those selected pages. This granular control also works outside of the homepage settings.

Selective API loading allows you to enable / disable the Facebook SDK being loaded by Facebook Traffic Pop. This is great if your theme or some of the plugins you use do not correctly load the Facebook SDK which results in the library being loaded twice and causing issues on the site. Facebook Traffic Pop PRO allows you to work around these issues.

You can also specify ANY of Facebook’s Localization API’s independently of the locale you use for Facebook Traffic Pop. On top of all these great features I have also included my new TC Plugins Option Framework that brings a complete overhaul to the plugins admin GUI and ads AJAX support.

Installing the upgrade is literally drag and drop! Just make sure you are running the latest version of the plugin, and drop the upgrade files into the folder. As soon as the files are uploaded the PRO version is ready to rock, just go to the settings page like usual to take full advantage of the great new features!

How to Add Google +1 Buttons to WordPress

Google’s new +1 button is a great way to allow 400 million plus Google account holders to share your content and boost your search rankings.

There are a number of ways you can add these buttons to your WordPress powered site but the easiest, most powerful way it with Google +1 for WordPress. This plugin gives you both WordPress shortcodes AND template tags with support for all 46 of Google’s localizations.

That means you can add a button wherever you like either with shortcodes, or you can add a Google +1 button to every post in WordPress by using the template tag.

How To Use The Google Web Font API With WordPress

The Google Web Fonts API allows you to quickly and easily use a database of open source fonts in your websites. These fonts work in pretty much all modern browsers and come in a wide variety of styles.

My latest WordPress plugin – Google Fonts PRO for WordPress gives you instant access to the 220 beautiful, open source fonts in Google’s API. Best of all, all it takes to use the fonts in your site is simple point and click the fonts you want to use in certain parts of your site!

Check out the demo video here: http://vimeo.com/23935681

Best of all this easy to use, powerful plugin is only $6 bucks! With your purchase you get access to free updates, support, and new fonts as Google makes them availbile in the API.

Updates In The Works For Next Week

I have gotten some emails and comments about Facebook Traff Pop (FBTP) for WordPress and WordPress Like Locker this is an easier way to give everyone the full deets. Mainly some people were affected by Facebooks recent API issues in which the edge.create callback were not firing. This would cause any callback after clicking the like button to take place and was intermitent for about a week. Facebook’s bug page here. Most people had no problem but for those who did it seems to be working again as of a few days ago.

Cookies – Cookie management has been improved in both version of FBTP as well as Like Locker. All source code + CSS is now loaded trough WordPress’ built in enqueue_script/style function to make the plugins more efficient. I am also adding jQuery.noConflict() into all of the plugins to keep them from getting the dreaded xxFunctionNamexx is not a function error that some people get with a high number of JQ plugins.

All of the above is done all thats less is a couple new features that will allow Facebook Like Locker and FBTP to work together seamlessly. All of these updates will be in the review queue on CodeCanyon next week as always a free download for current buyers.

Also just got a great request for escape + click outside of the box to close features.

Facebook Traffic Pop for WordPress v1.6 Update

I have just uploaded the new 1.6 version of Facebook Traffic Pop for WordPress. It should fix a lot of headaches and comes with one small new feature:

Traffic Pop not working on anything but home page – A lot of people who used highly customized URL structures for their sites reported the pop up would only show on the home page and no sub pages. The error was bad file URL’s causing 404 errors for the scripts needed to run Traffic Pop and has been updated to use WordPress’s built in blog_info functions to get the correct file URLs regardless of your URL rewrites.

“FacebookTrafficPop is not a function” Error – I have also done some reading and changed out the ‘$’ signs that I believe were causing a lot of people’s installs to halt because of the way WordPress handles the signs internally. jQuery noConflict has been added and should ensure smooth sailing from now on.

New Feature - Opacity. You can now set the background opacity from the settings page in your WordPress admin panel.
