The plugin has extensive parameter set to specify which articles are targeted or excluded, where the plugins should appear and which ones and some more parameters to modify their look. The look of the components can also be modified by css file of the plugin.

Don't foget to enable the plugin after installation!

It would be great, but too slow loading of the articles. In this way is not usable


Good but not optmize

It's an awsome extesion but is ussles if the site load is +1 min by using this :(. When i dexactivate the plugin the site loads instantly but when i activate the load is awful


Hi

Great plugin, easy to install and publish but then I found it made my pages load slow when enabled (stuck for few seconds with the status bar reporting 'waiting for'), when disabled my pages load fast. I disabled many features still it is slow. So I m not using it.


An elegant way to implement social media buttons in articles and it works beautifully. I had a small issue with FB grabbing the wrong image but with the dev's help I discovered it was a minor problem with the HTML code in the test article that I was sharing. Well done on producing such handy extension!


great plugin!!

Hi! Just wanted to say that this is awesome plugin and for me, it has everything I needed and was looking for.



Well it would be great if it also had a Twitter button. Is it possible, that the next release would have it? :)


One of the best plugins!


Posted on 23 September 2012

The plugin that fit all my requirements! And documentation was great. I had a bit of problems but Gyula Komar was so patient and prompt in his replies! Thank you soooo much!!!


GREAT GREAT PLUGIN


Posted on 11 September 2012

The best plugin till now, I wonder if I can do in a way to show the number of comments at every article on the bar, just the number, not the comments. Thank you, keep up the good work.


For its many bells & whistles I give it a 3* but for not being "responsive friendly" I have to hold back awarding any more stars then that. The fixed width of the comment area means it will break mobile devices and responsive templates. Hopefully the developer will fix this soon.

Owner's reply: FB developers also realised realised this, their solution is to automatically detect the browser (desktop or mobile) and render the page accordingly. They also made a new option called User-agent to enable this to be fixed.

Unfortunately as of now, the mobile layout still does not work properly. I still made this new parameter available to be passed to FB from v1.0.19, v1.7.19 (added plugin parameter "User-agent" for comments).

So as soon as FB fixed its bug you can enjoy this new feature.

AMAZING!

I have to give credit to the developer on this one. Some Joomla extensions require bibles to understand, the simplicity of embedding this to your site is without a doubt one of the easiest facebook/Google + adds possible to any site. Whoever you are, your awesome! Literally, install activate, Customize options in plugin menu and Bam! its right there! So easy a monkey could do it ( Figuratively speaking of course)


Works fine!


Posted on 15 June 2012

Works fine and covers most of the average users needs. Best of it: it's free!

If I could add one thing to the already extensive list of possible settings, I would add a "set position of like, share, etc- boxes within the bar" setting. Sometimes the boxes get jumbled up a bit or they overlap each other with doesn't look very nice.

Apart from that, it's definitely worth a download! Full stars because it's free.

Joomla plugin to add Google +1 button to your site.

There is also an inline parameter 'lang' where you can specify the language of the plugin. Example: {plusone lang=hu} will use Hungarian language, the default is English.
