The pop-out sure looks great on you site! Very elegant!
Unfortunately it does not seem so beautiful on mine. I wonder why that might be...?

I am using a custom child theme of Suffusion.

I am considering upgrading to the Headway framework. Would that make any difference?

Thanks,
Bill

Bill,

can you check that a folder with name "FloatingSocialMediaPopout"

exists in "blog/wp-content/plugins/" path of your wordpress installation.
And try to access this:

http://<YourWebsite>/blog/wp-content/plugins/FloatingSocialMediaPopout/fsb_style.css?ver=3.4.2

All files should be in FloatingSocialMediaPopout folder

Hi Santosh,

I also had the same problem as Davide... Little buggers were appearing on the bottom. As I mentioned, I am considering ditching Suffusion theme in favor of Headway.

Do you think that will be different, or are there known issues with Headway?

I really like the plugin, so thanks for developing it!  I just hope I can use it.  For various reasons I want a very customisable look to my site, and not a "typical bloggy-looking blog".  I hope it's not aiming for too much, a custom site with your cool plugin...

Cheers,
Bill

Hi Bill,

if the plugin is not working, you can implement the code directly in your website
Here is the code : reviewresults.in/.../...sites-and-blog-engine.aspx

also check that a folder with name "FloatingSocialMediaPopout"

exists in "blog/wp-content/plugins/" path of your wordpress installation.
And try to access this:

http://<YourWebsite>/blog/wp-content/plugins/FloatingSocialMediaPopout/fsb_style.css?ver=3.4.2

All files should be in FloatingSocialMediaPopout folder

It wasn't working for me at all so I went in and fixed it.
When you try to install the plugin, the problem is that the php file is looking for the plugin folder path written with capital letters. You should probably fix that when you release an update to the plugin.

Also the width of the plugin itself was an issue, so i also had to edit that in the php and css file so that it wouldn't cut off the like box.

Aside from those small problems, once I got it to work it's a really nice plugin, so thank you for making it. I hope when you make those fixes more people will be able to enjoy it without issues.

Your page shows a Twitter Popout...shouldn't the plugin have one also?

This works slick but leaves me wishing I could add twitter. Is there no work around or way to conform to wordpress rules?

Is there a known problem with this plugin working in Firefox. I have it activated on a site that I am working on. It works fine in every other browser except Firefox.

Real Nice Plugin!

When visitor clicks G+ popout, can it just open G+ page in a NEW tab/window, just lkie FB popout?
I hope visitors can still stay on website.
