[Evil Production] Responsive Social Sharers
« on: May 02, 2020, 12:37:30 PM »
Originally coded for Bastion (and RDD, and possibly for Lunarfall)... why not share with rest : )

Copy the following code at the end of the index.template.php (before closing ofc)
Code: [Select]
function template_evil_social_share () {
// We have to be in boardIndex, messageIndex or Topic... otherwise no!
global $context, $board, $topic;
if (empty($_REQUEST['action'])) {
// Output what we have...
echo '
<div id="social_evil_buttons">
<a href="'. $context['canonical_url']. '" class="facebook"><i class="fab fa-facebook fa-2x fa-fw"></i></a>
<a href="'. $context['page_title_html_safe']. '&url='. $context['canonical_url']. '" class="twitter"><i class="fab fa-twitter fa-2x fa-fw"></i></a>
<a href="'. $context['canonical_url']. '" class="reddit"><i class="fab fa-reddit-alien fa-2x fa-fw"></i></a>
<a href="mailto:?'. $context['page_title_html_safe']. '&body='. $context['canonical_url'].'" class="mailto"><i class="fas fa-envelope fa-2x fa-fw"></i></a>

Ofc the CSS part, add this to the end of your index.css file
Code: [Select]
/* Social Buttons -why not- */
#social_evil_buttons {
position: fixed;
left: 0;
bottom: 40%;
display: flex;
flex-flow: row wrap;
width: 3%;
#social_evil_buttons a {
padding: 15px;
display: block;
flex: 1 100%;
text-align: center;
#social_evil_buttons a i {
vertical-align: middle;
.facebook {
    background: #4267B2;
.twitter {
    background: #1DA1F2;
.reddit {
background: #ff4500;
.mailto {
background: grey;

And ofc the Responsive part...
Code: [Select]
@media screen and (min-width: 240px) and (max-width: 640px) {
/* Social Evil Something */
#social_evil_buttons {
bottom: 0;
width: 100%;
flex-flow: row nowrap;
#social_evil_buttons a {
padding: 10px;

Now you can use the function anywhere ... but I strongly advise to load the function inside template_html_below (before body closing)

Before you ask, this is also planned to be a modification... I just need some "good" time to make this into a mod (had to deal with all these hooks/settings etc...)

Note: This requires Font-Awesome by default to work properly, otherwise you need to change the icons & respected CSS parts

Remember if something is broken, its not my fault it was working last I checked... if its working good...

I tried this but it didn't work in my site. No social media buttons.
