Digital Point Social Bar

Digital Point Social Bar 1.0.2

No permission to download
Compatible XF 1.x versions
1.3, 1.4
Additional requirements
- Requires a valid caching mechanism defined in your XenForo config.php
Visible branding
Yes, but removable with payment

Benefits

  • Placement Consistency - social buttons are in same place on all pages
  • Lightweight - needs a single 2KB HTTP request to render, vs. 20 HTTP requests totaling 116KB for the default social buttons
  • Retina Ready - logos are SVG and can scale infinitely
  • CSS Animations - all animations used are CSS based to make use of hardware acceleration
  • Counter Consistency - share counters work properly on pages with extra data in the URL (for example on page 2 of a thread)
Twitter List Integration
You can utilize Twitter Lists on your Twitter account to generate a rotating feed of tweets that can be specific to each forum (for example if you have a forum about a company, you could create a Twitter List with members being employees of that company).

You can set a default Twitter List to fallback to in areas that you have not picked a specific list for.

Example
You can see how it works/looks by going to any page within digitalpoint.com. For example the main forum page falls back to a Twitter List consisting of users that have premium membership accounts on our site: https://forums.digitalpoint.com/

Works great, and is very convenient. Not to mention I have been trying to get a decent social share buttons to replace the old ones for some time now. The Twitter feed is a huge bonus!
