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.

Facebook Send Button Pro for WordPress Updated

The Facebook Send Button Pro plugin for WordPress has been updated to version 1.0.2. This new update added a much requested feature ( should have been there from the start ) which is a template tag.

You can now place the send button anywhere in your theme files using a simple WordPress template tag that can also be customized just like the short code. So for example if you wanted to place a send button at the start of every post automatically you can just add the template tag to your single post theme file and it will automatically get the permalink and add a send button for Facebook where you put the tag :)

As always this is a FREE update to current owners of the plugin, if you do not currently have a copy you can get it now at CodeCanyon for just $4!

How To Use Facebook Send Button On WordPress

Just like Facebook’s like button, the Send button is quickly sweeping through the internet and is a must have social feature for any blogger or website owner looking to have a social presence online!

First off lets look at what the Send button is. In Facebook’s own words: “The Send Button allows your users to easily send your content to their friends. People will have the option to send your URL in an inbox message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of any Facebook group they are a member of, and as an email to any email address.”

So how do you use the Facebook send button on WordPress? Easy! You could go to the Facebook developer site and generate stand alone button code that you need to change every time you want to use it, and then insert the requied code and script in your posts every time, OR you could use our slick Send Button Pro plugin for WordPress. The Facebook Send Button Pro Plugin for WordPress allows you to do the following:

  • Install and use in just seconds! Facebook Send Button Pro is a zero config plugin. All you have to do is upload and activate and you are ready to roll.

WordPress Like Locker Updated to v1.2

An updated version of WordPress like locker should be live soon. After the last version release I got a lot of bug feedback and have implementeing a lot of fixes and improvements:

  • The issue with the actual wp-likelocker bracket tags appearing around the content after likeing it has been fixed. They will no longer show in content at all.
  • The issue with wrong URLS being used for the CURRENT variable has been fixed. Now when you use CURRENT you will not get the http://CURRENT error when liking the page on Facebook.
  • Cookie tracking has been added! In edition to now tracking the URL of the liked page in the DB, cookies are now set to remember each post a user clicks like on. This also fixes the issue of post id’s changing when you modify or edit posts + pages.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Here is a demo:
