facebook and twitter

edited July 2011 in Share
Hello all,just started playing around with fuelCMS! It's pretty cool and I was wondering how I could use the social helper to include facebook likes,fb share, twitter share etc. I read the user guide http://www.getfuelcms.com/user_guide/modules/blog/social_helper but didnt quite understand. Can someone please give me a step by step example on how to add the social network features to my blog?

Thanks!

    You should be able to add the function calls directly in your blog view files located in fuel/modules/blog/views/_themes/{my_theme}. For example, the post.php file located in that directory could have the following added to it.
    <?=social_bookmarking_links($post->url, $post->title)?><br /><?=social_tweetme($post->url, $post->title)?><br /> <?=social_stumbleupon($post->url, $post->title)?><br /> <?=social_digg($post->url, $post->title)?><br /> <?=social_facebook_share($post->url, $post->title)?>

    In the above example, the $post variable is automatically past to that view file as part of the blog module, however, you could insert your own URL and title.

    I did notice a few issues with the stumpluopon, tweetme and bookmarking links which I've just fixed and pushed to the repo:
