(NB41) Social Count Fans

Recommended Posts

Purchased and installed, I'm very excited about this as I have been trying to campaign for this to be made.

I can't seem to change the social tabs colour, it just stays wait on my theme. You can check this via my sites test page Newbie if you would like to look? Also, can you please provide details on how to set it up fully via the install download?

I think other users will find this useful.

I have setup YouTube and Twitter without any problem but I cannot get Instagram or Facebook to accept my IDs etc

Use the setting "Use background"

What do you want to know?

Some services work with API credentials only. Go to ACP - Plugins - (NB41) Social Count Fans - Settings

You can omit "Custom background" and "Custom FA icon" to use default values.

Example

or Facebook

Check Facebook Client Id. It should be number. It's simular as https://invisionpower.com/4guides/how-to-use-ips-community-suite/social-sign-in/facebook-r220/

App ID and App Secret

You need to fill the setting on ACP Instagram access token

sc6.jpg.4ea601f841fb0076606314dd13567a1e.jpg

Click on Get access token

You will be redirect to main page. The url will be looks like domain.ltd/access_token=TOKEN

Copy TOKEN

Quick guide how to create an app

1. Go to https://www.instagram.com/developer/clients/manage/

2. Register a new client

3. Fill the fileds

4. On security tab uncheck Disable implicit OAuth

Can I use the same application as the one I have setup to allow FB login integration?

Also, I assume the page name is the username? For some reason, I still can't manage to get FB to set up.

Likewise with Instagram, however I am wondering if it's due to still being in 'sandbox mode'. Also, do I need to request any permissions?

If you want.

Facebook changed API. I fixed on your forum.

I need some time to update the plugin.

No.

There is a bug. Read above

Copy API key, go to ACP and add it in "Youtube API key".

And since there is no error reporting for the API calls I have no clue what to do differently. 

It's a bug. Widget form doesn't respect errors. I can log them or show to admins under widget.

Hello,

Have you created applications for services?

I have login handlers for facebook, google, instagram, twitter, linkedin, paypal, instagram... I followed the instructions above for youtube but it didn't work since it asks for the user channel link and not for the application id or the application secret. The same for the other social networks, except Twitter which is working well.

Those are different things. The API key needs to be set in the ACP for the plugin, so it can call via the API. The channel ID is being set in the widget to specify which channel data to pull. 

That being said, I still can’t get it to work either. Google reports “client error (4xx)” in the developer console.

Got it working now somehow.

Another question: How is the Feedly function supposed to be used?

If I add a feedly URL https://feedly.com/i/subscription/feed/https…  it doesn’t work. If I add my IPS RSS feed directly, it works and reports the Feedly followers, but it doesn’t link to Feedly but to the RSS feed directly, so I can’t gain any Feedly followers this way. Is that intentional?

You should add a link without https://feedly.com part.

Looks like a bug. I'll change the link.

Nothing else is working.

Any errors? I wrote instruction for youtube here https://invisionpower.com/forums/topic/436877-nb41-social-count-fans/?do=findComment&comment=2685441 For G+ it will be similar (you can use the same application) For instagram https://invisionpower.com/forums/topic/436877-nb41-social-count-fans/?do=findComment&comment=2685204

Hello,

See the setting "Instagram access token". Value is not url


https://prideofnottingham.co.uk/access_token=%TOKEN%

I changed. Result you can see on your test page.

When using the metro style, would there be a way to make the 4th social channel the full size (as Facebook is on my test page?) so that it fills the white space @newbie LAC

Is there a way to use this outside the drag-and-drop areas?

I would like to put it in my custom footer and created a Social count block in the ACP. If I add it as custom block to a drag-and-drop area through the sidebar manager it works – but if I call the block in a template or another block like {block="social-count"} it returns nothing.

Because output depends on configuration. By default there are no services.

I think you can use php to call the widget

I've set up the services (while creating the block in the ACP) and the block works. It just doesn’t work when called through {block="…"}. 

It's a core issue and related with "orientation".

applications/cms/sources/Blocks/Block.php

	public static function display( $block, $orientation=NULL )

When you use {block} tag you can't pass orientation variable.


Solution

Open plugins/nb41socialcountfans/widgets/nbSocialCountFans.php

Find and comment

		if ($this->orientation != 'vertical')
		{
			return '';
		}

or change to 

		if (isset($this->orientation) and $this->orientation != 'vertical')
		{
			return '';
		}
