Yet Another Social Plugin 1.1 Beta 2 Released

Yet Another Social Plugin 1.1 Beta 2 has been released today.  This is a beta release of the forthcoming 1.1 series.  As this is a beta release, it is NOT recommended for use on production sites.  Note that this release is ONLY compatible with Joomla! 2.5.

New for 1.1

The 1.1 release series brings in three major new features.  Visible to the user is the addition of the LinkedIn button (note: the first beta had Google Buzz as well, but that system has been shut down).  Invisible to the user is that the plugin now contains advanced processing logic to dynamically set each button's language based on first the article's settings, followed by the site's configuration, and falling back on English if your language is not available.  This is further explained in this tutorial.


A big thanks to Olaf Rietzschel for writing the code adding the LinkedIn button as well as laying the framework for the language processing.

Help Testing

Because of the scope of change with the language processing feature, a call for testing is requested to ensure the feature works correctly.  If you are using a site with multiple languages, please install the plugin, set various articles to different languages (including the default "All") and verify that the buttons load in the correct language.  If it loads in English, either your language isn't supported in that button or there is a bug to be fixed.


Yet Another Social Plugin has been translated into Portuguese Brazilian, Swedish, Spanish, Dutch, and Serbian, and and these translations are included with the plugin.  A big thanks to the Open Translators teams for translating the plugin!

Supports only Joomla! 2.5

At this time, only Joomla! 2.5 is supported.

Upgrade from 1.0

As this is a beta release, you will need to download the plugin from this site to install the 1.1 Beta 2 release.

Need Additional Support?

Documentation about the plugin is available on this site in the Yet Another Social Plugin section.  This area includes information about the plugin, a description of the various configuration options (coming soon), and a method to subscribe for e-mail updates.  If you don't see something here that you think would be beneficial for all users, feel free to Contact Me with your suggestion.

Future Development

As bug reports come in and features are requested, I will modify the code and issue new releases.  However, given the core features are derived from stable API's, there will probably not be many releases with major changes.

You can contribute to the project by visiting the space on GitHub at https://github.com/BabDev/Yet-Another-Social-Plugin and report bugs, provide patches for known issues, suggest new improvements, or download a working copy of the Git repository.
