  • „Social Links for WCS 3“ in Version „3.1.1“ verhindert eine Aktualisierung von „WoltLab Suite Core“ auf Version „5.2.1“

    • Hi, sorry I don't speak German. You need to update the plugin to 3.2.0 which it's compatible with WSC 5.2. Regards.

  • Lässt sich trotz Angabe nicht in 5.2 installieren.

  • Last Update 1 1/2 years ago. why no update to FA5?

    thats really bad.

  • Discord update possible?

    • Not at this time as WoltLab is not using Fontawesome 5.

      You can use another Icon in replacement :)

    • couldnt it be possible to add a function where we can use a own uploaded image and place it as the needed icon?

    • Yes, custom images would be awesome

  • Ist es möglich, je nach Sprache auf zwei unterschiedliche Seiten zu verlinken?

    Die Datenschutzerklärung ist ja leider nur als "Text" hinterlegt, also hat sie je nach Sprache zwei verschiedene URLs...

  • Hey, i need the discord icon for links. how i can do that?

  • Kann man auch deaktivieren das das symbol im benutzermenü so makiert ist sondern ich will das normal wie alle anderen ist.

  • It would be great, if I can select the user group for this plugin. I don't want to display my social activity to my guests, only to my registered users. Would that be possible?

    • Yes it's possible, I can implement that, or you can edit the templates to allow only some usergroups to see the social links :)

    • That would be great, because other users would benefit from this feature as well.

  • Hi GeGeek

    Can the social icons be placed in the right sidebar?


    • Hi,

      not actually, maybe I will make it possible on a future update :)


    • Thanks GeGeek, but on second thoughts the links look just fine in the footer and nav bar, where they are non obtrusive.

  • Das Discord Icon wird nicht angezeigt..



    • It's fontawesome 5 :)

      There is no discord icon for older version of fontawesome (4.7.0).

      I'll implement it when WoltLab will use FA5 ;)

  • Wie kann ich die Icons/Links ausblenden, die ich nichts nutze?

    • Hi, just leave the URL field empty for icon you don't want :)

  • Sorry, aber wann kommt denn das korrekte Update? Es nervt ehrlich gesagt mit dieser Fehlermeldung.

    Sorry, but when is the correct update? It really annoying with this error message.

  • Update not possible?

    "An update of package fr.geeklabs.wcf.socialLinks from version 3.0.9 to 3.1.0 is not supported."

  • will an update coming soon for 3.1?

    • Yes, soon :)

    • thx :D

      and an other question

      is it able to change the share icon?
      i dont like the standard share icon^^

    • The only solution for this actually is to edit the template directly :)

    • Ok, thx

  • Quick support thank u :) !

  • Hello - Installing this plugin gives my entire site a fatal error (below) from which I can recover only by uninstalling the plugin. No doubt I am doing something wrong as everyone else seems to love the plugin. Would the info below help me debug? thank you!

    • Install the one before this, so 3.0.6 under the tab "Versions". The newest one has a bug and the new update is still in aprobation by the mods :)

    • Thank you!!!!

  • Ich bekomme auch eine Fehlermeldung???

    • Sorry for this. Fixed in the new version available soon.

    • Wann kommt den ungefähr die neue Version ^

    • Wie wäre es denn, das inkorrekte Update erstmal raus zu nehmen? Dann geht auch mal die Update Meldung weg?

    • New version fixes this. Awaiting moderator approbation. Contact me if you want me to send it to you via private message :)

    • Wie wäre es denn wenn ihr einfach mal auf Englisch schreibt, dann hat der Autor auch die Möglichkeit, nachzuvollziehen was ihr da von euch gebt.

    • Gleiche Fehlermeldung. Die Neuinstallation habe ich gar nicht erst gewagt nach der Info hier.

    • Oups, sorry, i forgot something, a new version will be available very soon :)

  • Hey Geek. Maybe you can add a option (enable / disable) for mobile users? :)

  • Hey,

    thanks for this amazing plugin!

    Do you think you could add an option to view the icons on the left or right site of the page, floating in user definied position vertically?

    • Hi, of course i can, i'll take time to do it before 2018 ;)

  • Hello

    I installed the plugin and am very satisfied.

    How can you add new social icons so that the URL can / must be inserted in the ACP?

    I would like to set up the link for Battlelog.

    Thank you.

    • Hello,
      unfortunately this icon is missing in FontAwesome, so i can't add it.
      For this, the best solution is to edit this plugin's template files and add manually the links by copy/past/edit/save => (__geekLabsSocialLinksFooter.tpl, __geekLabsSocialLinksNavigation.tpl, __geekLabsUserSocialModal.tpl, __geekLabsUserSocialMobileUser.tpl) :)

    • Thank Dan for your reply.

      Yes, there is no FontAwesome for Battlelog. I have wanted to solve it for me with the "trophy icon".

      I have also copied from the existing entries the whole and adapted accordingly. However, I have in the ACP no possibility then the linking for Battlelog to enter, as is the case with Steam or Twitch.

      Do you have to change other files with the exception of those already mentioned?

      Best regards :)

    • To do that, i must edit the plugin, because it comes with the plugin, so effectively, editing templates don't add settings in the ACP.

      I'll add a new version with custom icons this week, so you'll be able to add custom icons and links :)
      I will tell you once it's available!

  • Hi, is it possible that you can add Discord to the next Release? Or can you tell me how I add it by myself?

    • I just realized that you are using fontawsome. I don't know if it is in there already.

    • The Icon comes with Font Awesome 5.

    • Yes, when FontAwesome 5 will be used in WoltLab, i'll add it :)

  • Hi, is there a way to add new social media "accounts"?

    • Hello, of course, you just need to edit the template files (__geekLabsSocialLinksFooter.tpl, __geekLabsSocialLinksNavigation.tpl, __geekLabsUserSocialModal.tpl, __geekLabsUserSocialMobileUser.tpl)

    • Okay c: Can you help me by adding discord, minecraft and teamspeak, please?

    • Unfortunately these icons are not available in FontAwesome actually, so i can add it :)

  • Hi, everything is working. One question: how to change the tooltip(s)?

  • Exzellentes Addon, great work!

  • Hello GeGeek,

    I'd prefer to see the round icons (like in the footer) in the navigation bar instead of the fontawesome icons - would that be possible?
    And I'd really appreciate to see a Discord link also, like others mentioned before :).

  • Auf mobile zeigt er den Xing Banner noch an, obwohl ich den leer gelassen habe...

    • Und er verlinkt es mit der jeweils aktuellen Seite auf der ich bin
