PHP Social Sharing - some providers not working

Just wanted to point out 3 issue I've noticed: -

1) Reddit: When using the Reddit share button, the 'long' urls do not carry over. So, when sharing blogs to Reddit, users have to manually copy/paste the long url from our system.

2) Delicious: Neither the share button nor the site seem to be working.

3) Pinterest: Share button not working. When attempting to share, we get the message "parameter 'image_url' (value https:) not a valid url format" for each attempt made to share to Pinterest.

Please let me know if we should disable some of these social platforms, so the end-user has a better experience on our site.

Regards
Steve

  • Hi,
    The fix should be in place now.
    Are you still experiencing the problems you reported?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,
    Indeed, thanks for pointing this out!
    Regarding Reddit, are the long urls shortened, leading to a Reddit warning?

    Also, we have corrected the error with Pinterest, but it is not into production yet.
    We are still working on the Delicious error.

    Regards.

    Hi,
    For Reddit, if the error is caused by the shortened URL, you can try adding the attribute data-opt="si:0" to the div.oas_box, or to the Reddit span element.

    The Delicious and Pinterest errors should be fixed, and soon moved into production.
    We will inform here when this is done.

    Thanks.
  • Thanks Frederic .. confirmed that Pinterest and Delicious are now working.

    Also, the Reddit code change has rectified the situation.
