ITPSharePoint is an advanced extension for Joomla, developed to provide an easy way for adding social sharing buttons where extensions like ITPShare and ITPFloatingShare fail. You only have to put the indicator {itpsharepoint} somewhere in the code or articles. And the extension will render the buttons at that location that you have specified.

How to implement ITPSharePoint?

You have to include this indicator {itpsharepoint} in your website content. There are several ways in which you can do it.

Into item description

You have to put the indicator into the description of your item ( article, product description,...).

Into source code

You can put the indicator somewhere in the source code. The location should be something which will be displayed. The purpose of this way is to make the indicator part of the content.


If you want display the buttons on articles, component Joomla! content, you can put the indicator on last line in file "components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php". That is a view of an article.

Into a module Custom HTML

You can create a module "Custom HTML" and enter the indicator as a content. Display the module somewhere on your page.


NOTE: You have to choose a location for the indicator where the code will be implemented once. That will prevent multiple code including and initialization.

How to restrict buttons displaying in the component views?

Sometimes you will need to restrict buttons rendering  on some component view. For example, I will give you this case.

I add indicator {itpsharepoint} in HotSpot description (com_hotspot). I would like to display widgets only on single hotspot page (view "hotspot"). I want to avoid appearing on other views.

To do this, I will set component "com_hotspot" and view "hotspot". That is the view where I would like to display the buttons.

I go to tab "Advanced" and enter ['com_hotspot','hotspot'] (use single quotes) in the field "Display On".  Save it.

The social buttons will be displayed on the view where you have been chosen.

NOTE: If you only enter component option ( "com_hotspot" ), the widgets will be displayed on all views.

How to prevent wrong meta description in K2 ( com_k2 )?

If you don not enter a meta description for your item in K2, the extension K2 gets a part from intro text and uses it for meta description.

So if you put {itpsharepoint} flag in the beginning of the article, all code for the buttons ( JavaScript, HTML,...) will be added before the intro text. Then, K2 will take this code and will use it for meta description.

To avoid this unpleasant problem, always set a meta description, when you use {itpsharepoint} flag in your article.

How to display social buttons in floating box?

To do that, you have to enable that feature on the tab "Floating Options".
