Mashable Style Social Widget for Joomla!

Share on FacebookShareTweet on TwitterTweet

Here a beautiful and fully customizable new social module for Joomla !. Inspiration of this module is from the WordPress plugin  Easy Mashable Social Bar. Thanks to Syafz for giving permission to use the codes (PHP and CSS) in this Joomla  module. As name suggests, this module replicates the social widget used in Mashable website. This is the first time I am converting a WordPress plugin to a  Joomla module. Task was not simple because structure of Joomla and WorPress are completely different. However within one day I could finish it Smile  Fist see the screenshot of this module.

    • Hi Syafz, Your codes made my job much easier.

  • Hello,
    Thank you for this nice module but how can i translate into the Turkish language?
    Forexample: ” Subscribe ” i must write it ” Abone Ol” – class,name,type or value which must i change ?

    Thank you.

    • Thanks Can. Will try to include the translation option also in the module

    Greetings. Excellent module. I have a couple recommendations.

    1. There should be an option to disable some of the links. For example for many sites LinkedIn is not needed. I found when you leave the item blank it enters the default link and thus it forces you to sign up for these services. If there is something im missing please let me know.

    2. There should be a link to Youtube and possibly other services.

    I know its a copy of Mashable but if there is room for improvement why not upgrade.

    Thanks again
