Email page for ShareBar

Recommended Posts


Okay, I am finally getting the hang of using the forums to resolve a lot of issues I had in the past.  My question does not seem to exist in the Forum.  I have a website for a tour company and we are interested in using the ShareBar on our tour pages but I noticed it does not offer an option for the tour company's client to "email this page" to their friends who are interested in going on tour together.


All we have on the ShareBar is google, facebook, tweet.  Which is understandable.  But how to add an Email This to the ShareBar is the problem?  I know it is not a very common feature but short of shelling out 6.99 for a not an equally attractive plugin in Pageline store for "Extended ShareBar" how can I add this?  


On a side not, why would Email this not be part of the ShareBar?  I see it on so many sites everywhere else.

The basic Sharebar is simply intended to provide links to social media, not communication.  Email would be considered communication.  We don't recommend modifying core files, but if you'd like to do so, please see our Docs for information on customizing sections.


We have a premium Section called Sharebar Extended that includes email and more social media and communication options. Please see that section's description here:  http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/sharebar-extended/

I managed to find a regular free plugin that does the same thing as the "premium" plugin and works just fine.  I would believe "Email this page" or "Forward this page to a friend" would be a form of social communication.  Thanks anyways.

      The counter next to the icon in the Sharebar extension adds more mess than value for us. 
      Is there an easy way/code to hide the counter? (so that the icons line up closer?)

      Is there an easy CSS fix to change the social media icons in Sharebar so they are colored, not just on hover?

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      We had a very nice shortcodes library and hooker in the previous version of the platform. But in the version 5 they are missing. 
      So are you going to improve it again in future or no they are not supported anymore? 
      and one more question, what do you suggest for sharing bar which we had in DMS2 ?
      Thanks for your effort

      Currently my sharebar looks like this:

      Why is there a number next to LinkedIn? Is it supposed to show number of shares? 
      When I try to share anything, facebook just closes again, and the rest allows me to share "undefined undefined". 
      This might be because my site is restricted, but it seems weird?
