Floating Social bar not showing on some Marketpress pages

Hi,

Floating Social is not showing on some MP pages, while it IS appearing on pages that you might not expect it to…

Examples:

http://outbackaromas.com/ – Floating Social shown

http://outbackaromas.com/store – Floating Social NOT shown

http://outbackaromas.com/store/products/ – Floating Social NOT shown

http://outbackaromas.com/store/shopping-cart/ – Floating Social shown which seems odd?

http://outbackaromas.com/store/order-status/ – Floating Social shown which seems odd?

http://outbackaromas.com/store/products/category/business-candles/ – Floating Social NOT shown on category page

http://outbackaromas.com/store/products/business-promotional-soy-candle/ – Floating Social IS shown on individual product page

Ideally the bar should shown on the category page, main store page, main products page, NOT on the cart page and probably NOT on the order status page too.

Just a consistency issue really.

cheers

    Hiya!

    Actually, there is a consistency to it… it’s appearing on all those pages that are using the page template for your theme.

    Can you try changing the plugin settings to make the bar attached itself to a selector and add the name of that selector as .loop-content please?

    Thanks,

    Hey Phil,

    Yeah I guess it’s failing where the page is automagically created by the plugin – makes sense.

    As for the selector as .loop-content. Tried it, didn’t make any difference I’m afraid. I would be surprised if it would attach to a class rather than an id?

    cheers

    Hiya Gary,

    I don’t think, in this case, it’s a theme issue. I’m able to replicate this behavior in other themes and would make on clarification to your original post:

    http://outbackaromas.com/store/ – Floating Social IS shown for me. and this is consistent with the behavior of other themes.

    So the end result is that the products page and categories pages are not showing the Floating Social plugin. My hunch is that the plugin doesn’t display on any archive page (which is what the above pages are types of).

    You can easily turn off floating social on any individual pages (such as shopping cart and order status) by selecting these pages under Settings>Floating Social.

    I’ll ask the developer for feedback on how to use Floating Social on archive or category pages as that seems to be the desire here.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mason,

    Sounds like you’ve got the gist of the thing – and your point about turning the bar off on individual pages is a point well made!

    Will be interesting to see what comes of this :slight_smile:

    cheers

    Hi,

    The pages added by MarketPress are somewhat a special case in this regard. In the latest release (v1.4.1, just released), the Floating Social plugin should appear on store and products pages, although as before it still won’t work with classic archive-type pages.

    Do not know if this will help you or anyone else but I found this thread while trying to fix my issue. The floating social bar was not showing on my homepage despite checking yes to “Attempt to fix front page conflicts”. All I had to do was select no and now the floating social bar is present on my homepage.

    Hi,

    Depending on how your theme works and what hooks it implements, it can sometimes take a bit of tweaking to get it just right. Worst case scenario, you should be able to set “Attempt to fix front page conflicts” to “Yes”, then try a different hook in the “Use this hook” box.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
