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 position that you specified.

How to implement ITPSharePoint in VirtueMart?

There are two ways for implementing the social buttons in VirtueMart.

    1. If you would like to add buttons only in the item description, you have to put the indicator {itpsharepoint} into the description.

    1. If you would like to render the extension in categories, over product title or other specific position, you have to put the itpsharepoint indicator into the code.
      • The shop index - you should put {itpsharepoint} in that file "components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/common/shopIndex.tpl.php";
      • Categories list - you should put the indicator in "components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/browse/includes/browse_header_category.tpl.php";
      • Specific position in the item description - you should put the indicator in these files "components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/product_details/flypage.tpl.php", "components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/product_details/garden_flypage.tpl.php"

How to restrict buttons displaying in the component views?

Sometimes you will need to restrict the rendering buttons in one Joomla component view. For example, I will give you this case.

I add indicator {itpsharepoint} in article from Joomla! extension "com_content". I want to be shown only when it is loaded article (view "article"). I want to avoid appearing in the list of categories.

To do this, I will set component ( com_content ) and view (article). That is the view where I want to display the buttons.

I go to "Advanced options" and enter ['com_content','article'] (use single quotes) in the field "Display In".  Save and that's it!

The social buttons will be displayed in the view, you have chosen.

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.
