Social Media share

Srikanth Sharma asked on August 4, 2017 20:52

We're migrating to verion 10, and are looking options to share content on facebook, twitter. I have seen the link below. But it's more like integration and requires login. We want users to be able to share using their own accounts. Please suggest options.

Hi Srikanth,

Regrettably, there are no out-of-the-box replacements for the social media web parts that were removed in version 9. However, if a 3rd party plugin (as suggested by Peter M) is not an option for you, you can download the web parts and find the instructions on how to recover them for version 9 here

Please note that from that point if you want to work with the recovered web parts the code maintenance is up to you. You are free use them as base for your custom web parts.

Another approach would be to create custom web parts from scratch. Basically, you can follow our documentation on creating custom web parts, check the API for the social media you want to use with it and implement the wanted functionality in yourself. You can find the documentation on creating custom web parts (includes the classes to inherit for different types of web parts) here

What you are looking for is for something like addthis third party sharing plugin. There are alternatives.

We're not looking for any third party component at this point. In version 7, we're able to use Facebook Like, Share, Twitter Share functionalities. Now that they are gone, what is the substitute for them in Kentico?

The replacement is as I suggested in your related question about social media in Kentico.

Previous answer:

The substitute would be to go to the specific platform you desire and look at their developer tools.

These were removed completely in v9 if I remember right. Take a look at what you can do in the documentation.
