ShareBox allows you to easily share a URL on your Yii powered site with social networking sites.

Requirements

Developed and tested on Yii 1.1.7, should work on all 1.1.x branch.

Install

Extract to your extensions folder.

Alternatively, you can check out from GitHub right in your Git enabled project: ~~~ $ git submodule add git@github.com:digitick/yii-sharebox.git extensions/sharebox $ git submodule init $ git submodule update ~~~

Usage

Include the widget in a view file as follows:

$this->widget('ext.sharebox.EShareBox', array(
    // url to share, required.
    'url' => $this->createAbsoluteUrl('/'),
    
    // A title to describe your link, required.
    // Some services will ignore this value.
    'title'=> 'My Awesome web site !!',

    // Size of the icons to display, in pixels.
    // Default is 24px, available sizes : 16, 24, 32, 48.
    //'iconSize' => 32,

    // Whether to animate the links.
    // Default is true
    //'animate' => false,

   // Social networks to include, excluding all others.
   // The exclude filter is still run.
   //'include' => array('technorati', 'digg'),

   // Social networks to exclude from display.
   // By default none are excluded.
   //'exclude' => array('technorati', 'digg'),

   // Use your own icons! Note that you will need to have
   // a subfolder of the appropriate icons sizes.
   // ie: /myimages/social/16px /myimages/social/24px ...
   //'iconPath' => '/myimages/social',

   // HTML options for the UL element.
   //'ulHtmlOptions' => array('class' => 'myCustomUlClass'),

   // HTML options for all the LI elements.
   //'liHtmlOptions' => array('class' => 'myCustomLiClass'),
));
