Works, Finally

Posted on 08 May 2011

Did not work as auto-magically for me as for the other reviewers. I was using a T3 based template, and what finally worked for me was to put "social" into the position combo for the module and then a jdoc include of that position in the layouts/default.php of the template.

I have been looking for a module like this, I installed and had it running in less than 5 minutes. just add your social networking links. The best part is you can have the slide on the left or right even if your template does not have those positions. Thanks to the developer for this module

Pretty decent module. However, it would be a GREAT module if more Social Media icons were added (i.e. Flickr, Tumblr, Wordpress, Blogger) or if you could add you're own. As a result, I gave this module 3 stars instead of the 5 it could have if it had more options.

Thanks for making this great plugin.. Its so easy to use, just download the module, activate it in a banner position and it works amazing..

(you dont even need the plugin they give).. You can even control which pages to include this on..

We recommend this to all

Great plugin

Fast and easy to install. Love the fact that I can easily enable/disable javascript in the module parameters. Thanks!

The icons and jQuery movement look great. I just wish that there was more ability to control where the icons appeared onscreen (especially as module position seems to be irrelevant).

Personally I wanted to be able to position the icons relative to the content sides and keeping a minimum definable amount of distance from the page top and bottom.

If you don't mind it keeping a large space from the top of the page and only being definable x pixels from the left/right of the window edge, then this may still be for you.

Owner's reply: We have just made an update that gives you more control over the layout as well as the javascript. Hope this is what you were looking for.
