AddToAny Button for Joomla! 1.5

Latest Release - Version 1.5 - February 1, 2010

—Please leave a comment to provide any feedback or make suggestions for improvements. I will be releasing new versions as necessary and would like to incorporate your suggestions. Thanks.—

New features

  • Added two new share/save buttons that show facebook and twitter icons

Latest Release - Version 1.4 - Updated October 24, 2009

Fixed two bugs and added two new features


  • Stylesheet had a typo, border;0 instead of border:0
  • There was an extraneous semi-colon in the href link, causing a w3c validation error

New features

  • Added option to only have button display on-click, rather than default of on hover
  • Added background color option to pop-up

A special thanks to Pep for finding the first bug and providing the code for the background color option

Latest Release - Version 1.3 - Updated July 24, 2009

The latest release of this plugin is now available. It is a bug fix that was in some cases not honoring the exclude section and category inheritance. For example, if you exclude a section id, no article within that section should display the button.

Previous Release - Version 1.2 - Updated June 15, 2009

Bug fix that was preventing the embedded stylesheet from working properly.  Specifically, in version 1.1, you would see this in the stylesheet:

  • .a2a_dd img {border;0′ }

That single quote after the 0 meant in most browsers the following styles would be ignored. Thus, if you tried to apply your own styling to the addtoany button, chances are it would not work.  So the only change to 1.2 is to remove that single quote.  If you’ve made custom changes to 1.1 yourself, you can fix it yourself on line 30 of AddToAny.php.  You can download the latest version below.

Thanks to Marcel for helping me find the problem.

I recently discovered and their all-in-one social bookmarking tool. This is a great way to let your users share your site, without cluttering up every page with all kinds of different buttons. Also, since the addtoany button is automatically updated with the latest social sites that spring up constantly, it’s a zero maintenance solution. It even integrates with google analytics if you track at that level.

When I went to implement this on a Joomla! 1.5 system, I found out there was no existing plugin for it. So I wrote my own. It was my first attempt at a plugin, so be gentle…. Anyway, you can download the plugin here: Joomla! 1.5 AddToAny social bookmarking plugin.
