Social Web, Social Presence

The Social Menu Plugin is a simple plugin that allows you to place links to your social networks links. You can configure the plugin to display links for 7 different websites: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, RSS, Vimeo and YouTube.

The items are enabled if they have a link inside it, you can enable all or only some of them, the ones that are left blank are not displayed in the website.

You can choose from 2 different styles - one is displayed in the top-left side of the website and is hidden, displaying when the mouse hovers it, the other is shown in the bottom-left side of the website and is always visible.

27 Oct. 2010 - v1.1 : The new release allows you to set the icons size in the style2.

25 May 2011 - Joomla!1.6 version also available.

Next release will allow you set the position of the menu (top, bottom, left, right). Any other ideas for more options just let us know :)

Very Good.

I spent 4 hour with other modules before I found this one. This is the best social button I found. I needed google+ instead of myspace. I was able to open and XML file and change it in under 3 minutes. This is the also my first review on the site. Thank you 1000%.

Very good module

Great module, I have to admit that set of these icons is really nice and good looking.

However, there is one little problem. Opera (I´m using 11.61 - last version) has problem with this module. When you click on one of icons, they disappear and they won´t show again until you restart browser. I´m curios where problem might be.

Looked promising

Encountered a few problems:

1. could not use the "hidden" menu style at all. this would generate grey boxes with no icons

2. Appeared incompatible with IE7. Only one social media icon would appear at the bottom of the screen. (and it appeared cut-off)

Because of this, client refused to use this extension as there desktops are all on IE7.

Could not seem to find any support for the extension on their site short of a simple manual.

Looking for other extension.
Owner's reply: Hi, couldn't reproduce it in IE7, if you get in touch with us we can check directly in your website :)

it is very nice

This plugin is very well developed and designed. Stop the hassle of trying to find a social networking plugin that isn't clean or well placed on your site. This plugin does just that. Thanks guys.
Owner's reply: Thanks :) We've just updated and in the style2 you can now set the icons size to 32, 48 or 64 pixels.

Great little plugin
