SexyBookmarks v2.5.2.3 Now Ready!

Ok, so there were a few bugs that didn’t get fixed this time around… However, it wasn’t for lack of trying. Some of them have still yet to be solved, while others are simply still on the “back burner” until I actually get a few free moments to be able to add the fixes for them. Please be patient, and I assure you I will fix all of them that have been reported!

This patch fixes the following list of issues:

  1. Fixed “Subscribe to Comments” link

  2. Fixed issue with titles & URLs on index pointing to site and not individual articles

  3. Fixed persistent Twittley error message when saving settings

  4. Resolved issue with Google Bookmarks link

  5. Fixed issue with some themes forcing borders and background colors for menu items

  6. Added mobile browser check & ability to hide menu from mobile

    dude the error messages are still there. i gave up after trying to fix the twittley b.s. about ten times. each time the message popped up all the default settings came back, forcing me to do it all over again. after 10 times, i gave up.

    I tried in joomla, but I cannot see them.
    I installed the plugin and it was ok
    I went to the plugin management and configure the buttons I want or don’t want to see.
    save it
    and the only thing I see it’s the words
    sharing is sexy and a small dot.
    however if I go through the buttons with the mouse
    I see them when the cursor is on it, but if I move, it goes away again.

    So, I wasn’t sure where else to post this: The contact form for the site is not working. Seems to be a bug in the AJAX submit. It says, “please wait” (or the like) and just stalls there. I wanted to contact the author with question about the sprite file, but haven’t been able to.

  • i love this plugin in joomla 1.5 but i have a problem with this :

    Notice: Use of undefined constant add_css – assumed ‘add_css’ in … www/plugins/content/sexybookmarks.php on line 49

    this a sample : (this articel eror too)

    please… help me..

  • Josh, thanks for the super plugin. i’m using it on my blog for 2 months now. is there a way to prevent sexybookmarks from generating short urls when using previews? i’m using my own personal url shortener, and everytime i do a preview before publishing, it generates a short url. when i publish, it generates another. in essense, it generates two urls. if i dont do a preview and just publish right away, it works like a charm. i’ll wait for your response. thanks!

    I’m getting a weird mirroring aspect when viewing the plugin. Basically it’s as if the part that is normally hidden (Not selected) is stuck to the top. I’m guessing it’s something in my theme.

    Could you help me?

  • Vet

    OK, I absolutely LOVE this plugin but can’t get it to work on my site, Let me just say I’m not a techie but I’m learning on my own… I read your F.A.Q where u advised to check the stylsheet for !important and I did that but didn’t find it in my CSS. What could be the problem?

  • Very nice!!! and best of all.. SEXY!!! thanks for this.

  • Hi, I am having trouble configuring the plugin, WP 2.86 I installed it from the ‘plugins, ad new, install, activate) No errors, but when I try to go to settings>sexy bookmarks, all I get is a blank page, no errors, just blank…

    Hi Josh, First of all.. thanks for a great plugin.

    OK I’m hoping there’s an easy way to always have the pics expanded without hover and to underline each with a title ie.. under the twitter pic have ‘Twitter’ etc?

    I have so many blogs and this little change will make all the difference to me so if you could help it would be much appreciated.


  • My theme’s stylesheet extensively uses “!important”. I’m very new to blogging and don’t have any CSS experience. Is it possible to make sexybookmarks work with my theme? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful plugin, Josh! I was looking for a nice plugin for bookmarking via social networks, and I must say, yours is the best!
