Digital Point Social Bar 1.0.2

Lightweight and consistent social buttons

  1. digitalpoint
    Compatible XF 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
    Disclaimer: There is an external callback called whenever templates are rebuilt which automatically removes branding for you when appropriate.


    • 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.

    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!
