Plugin / Module for Joomla! 2.5 and 3.x
Integrates social buttons privacy safe - buttons are not loaded until the user clicks on them. The plugin and the module is a result of the problems that the integrated buttons of known social services already transmit personal data, although they still has not been clicked. So the visitors can be identified by the transmitted session ID.
The buttons have to be clicked active by visitors, so that the code of the buttons is reloaded. Thus, no personal data are transferred without the consent of the visitor. When the page loads first so-called "dummies" are displayed. The dummies are simple images that will be replaced by a click with the right buttons. Without clicking on the images no data are transferred to the social services. Another advantage is the faster loading of pages because of the very small image files.
* Privacy-friendly integration of social services
* Code of the buttons is only loaded after a click
* Supported services: Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus
* Faster loading of the pages
* Available as a plugin and module
The extension is completely free, but you need a subscription for support:
Only one issue: If you use SSL (https), the Facebook- and Twitter-Buttons aren't displayed when activated because Firefox>22 prevents loading of 'mixed' content. Therefore A "https"-loading option should be included.
Thank you for your review and the hint.
I will look into this!
That's not true what you say. Why don't ask in the forum instead of writing such a review?
Anyway, thank you for the review.
The only downside is, if a network is blocked by a firewall, enabling it leads to a white rectangle, which is noticeable on templates with none white backgrounds only. But clearly worth 5 stars anyway!
Thank you very much for your review!
This plugin doesn't really load them until requested so I am back to instant pageloads. The only slowdown is if someone clicks the button, but this way my page loads.
I've noticed FB and Twitter are slowing pageloads all over the web lately. They need to fix that.
Yes, this is also a main advantage of 2 Click Social Buttons!
Thank you for pointing it out.
1) Provide an option for the buttons to be shown on the home page.
2) Provide an option where when clicking on the grayed-out button, it automatically shares/tweets,etc.
3) When I set the plugin to display after the content, it doesn't show up at all. That could use some work. Of course, a top and bottom option would be awesome.
Thanks for an awesome plugin.
Thank you for your suggestions and review!

Thank you for this great plugin / module, I love it!
Nice! Thank you very much.
Here comes this great little gem into play. It incorporates the Heise idea into joomla sites - easy to install works perfectly fine. A forum is there if you need support.
Personally I prefer the plugin over the module for the simplicity of the usage.
A+ way to go!
thank you very much for you review!
it improves the page speed, enables security for users and works perfectly.
also, i have download other extensions by this author and works perfectly and are very useful :)
keep up your good work :)
i have given only 4 star because i have a problem with the plugin, the social buttons should be shown after the category and authors name, but currently it is show just after the title of the article :(
also, if there could be an option to show the buttons on category view and frontpage articles, it would be very nice :)
but you could give 5 stars! ;-)
The plugin is triggered by the content component. You could achieve your plans with an override very easily. Why don't you ask first in the support forum?
For the category view you can use the 2CSB module!
