  • Developer Info Regarding V4 Apps

    In the recent post, our great and powerful Wizard of Fox (Raymond) inadvertently missed putting in a few details which have created a bit of confusion regarding "modules" and "apps". As he's currently chained to a desk coding, he asked me to clarify things a bit regarding Developer Info Regarding V4 Apps. Our upcoming phpFox V4.2 release will include the merger of Modules and Apps which will, at that time, allow developers to choose whether to make an App or a Module. At that time, both will install just like Apps do now and clients won't see any difference in installation method. We will release a guide and a sample module at that time so that third-party developers will be able to make their products with the new installation method. For now, please don't submit V4 Modules as we won't be able to accept those until they can install directly from AdminCP like Apps do. Thank you for your patience while we make our phpFox script an awesome social networking script!

However, you might want to consider getting this great and cheap add-on Buffer Share Button for a mere $5!Info from ScriptTech about this Buffer Share Plugin:If you are concerned with the possibility of your site getting banned from Twitter, Facebook, etc due to their spam policies and the fact that URLs are not shortened with the standard share buttons, then Buffer is what you need.Buffer offers the ability for members to click to share content from throughout your site and store it in their Buffer. Then they can set it to post whenever they want, including posting immediately. With this, they won't bombard their followers/friends with post after post but can instead spread it out. Webmasters can use this tool to automatically share their sales, blogs, whatever content they want and set it to post any time, any day they want – a nice set and forget feature to have your site content shared to followers at set intervals. [...]Buffer has an analytics feature as well so you can see how many clicks your posts have, for your own buffer account. Each member can look at their Buffer analytics and see how well their posts are doing. This could be very handy for sales, magazines, etc as you can get an idea of how many are actually looking at your Tweets.LinkedIn Share Button If you run a social website with professional members (could also be educational members), the chance of these members having an active LinkedIn account is pretty high.
