Hi there, really you'd need to contact the plugin author and see if they can suggest a quick work around for this. They'd know the plugin and how it works better than we would. The might be able to suggest some css which would hide it for you.

OK just turned "Share" back on instead of the "Like". I see the 3rd feature just has the "Share" text but button disappeared.

Whats happening here is that the plugin cant tell the difference between the post type and a custom post type (in this case the boxes and features). What you can do is either contact the author and ask them for assistance, as it is an issue with the plugin.

 

Or you can use custom CSS to hide the social sharing from features. Simply add this to your custom CSS.

 

 

#feature #fb_share_1, #boxes #fb_share_1, {
display: none;
}

Hi

 

Is there an answer to this thread? Just found in in my searching because I have FB share button and num comments showing up just fine for first 2 features in the feature set but the simple word "Share" shows up for features after the 1st 2 in a feature set. Look at http://lifeoncue.com/ to see what's going on. Using:

PlatformBase Version 1.4.1 and

Platform Version: 1.5.0

Facebook Comments for WordPress version 3.1.3

FaceBook Share (New) 2.0.6  http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-share-new/

 

Thanks for helping me solve this!

OK just changed the settings for plugin from

Facebook Share Button

to

Facebook Like Button (Open Graph API-Recommended)

 

Now Only the first feature displays the Like icon and it does not show up on the other features in the set!

Hi there, you'll need to add the shortcode to each slider manually in the text area field. It won't carry through to the other slider unfortunately.

OK thanks will try that later this week when I get back on this project.... Appreciate your reply. Any idea why the first behavior? When the "Share" setting was there, the 1st 2 had the icons and then others after that had No icons, instead the word "Share" in its place???

hmmm, I'm not sure to be honest, we'd really need to see the code and it live on the site to see if there were any conflict anywhere.

Thank you for answering. I will try because the official creator is FB.

I'm not sure what insight they'd provide, but if they don't respond, it's best to leave the code alone. Are you just trying to hide the plugin in Boxes and other non-post sections?

Catrina thanks for answering.

The Facebook plugin has the option of hiding in every post and every page - But this option does NOT appear in boxes nor features. What you mean with leaving the code along?

I think Cat was simply suggesting not trying to edit the Facebook plugin code.
