    You will no doubt be familiar with this section (which appears in the sidebar):

    And this section (which appears in the footer of each thread):

    Well, today mine turned to this:


    The send button is an alternative to simply "Liking" a piece of content. You may, rather than sharing it to your Timeline, rather share it with specific people on Facebook or by e-mail.

    Why did this appear for me?

    I can't find any documentation on this, but it appears as though if the Facebook button code doesn't specify either send="true" or send="false" (XenForo's template specifies neither) then it will now default to send="true", thus making the send button appear.

    In typical Facebook fashion they are probably rolling this out slowly.

    This add-on serves two purposes:

    1) If you want to have the extra button displayed and it isn't showing yet, then this add-on will enable it.

    2) If you do not want to have this extra button, then there is an option to turn it off.

    Once this add-on is installed, by default the send button will appear. The options to turn it off are at:

    Admin CP > Options > Facebook Integration
    Admin CP > Options > Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)


    And that, is that...
