Move Like-button into div article-tools

Move Like-button into div article-tools

I'm using joomla 1.6, ja purity II blue.

I want to show the article-tools and article-info on the same line.
Also, how can I add JFBConnect jfbclike into the same line.

Atm it shows like this:

PUBLISHED TUESDAY, 31. MAY 2011 20:09     BY ADMINISTRATOR

[print] [mail] [edit]

[like]

---------------------------------------

I want it like this:
[like] PUBLISHED TUESDAY, 31. MAY 2011 20:09     BY ADMINISTRATOR [print] [mail] [edit]

I would really, really appreciate the help

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

Jim,
I think I can get you a partial answer tomorrow, but I have a couple comments/questions to narrow your request down first.

For the Like, print, mail, edit lines, that should be a pretty easy CSS addition that we can easily provide. We'd probably suggest this as the best method as the Like button can grow depending on how many users have liked the page. If it's on the same line as the published line, it could cause wrap-around issues and other problems, especially if it happens to be on an article with an author who has a longer name than just administrator.

If you really need them all on the same line, that would be a bit tougher, and not sure how easily done it can.. it may be another CSS statement, or could require some big PHP changes due to the internals of how Joomla works.

Let me know if:

[like]                                                                                            [print] [mail] [edit]

Would work for you (at least for now), and we can go from there. Also, please post (or Private Message) a url to your site as seeing the template would be helpful to get the best CSS for your site, instead of something generic that may or may not work.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply current/smile

I was also wondering if it was possible to show something lighter than the full fb comments in blog/category view. Having the comment fields under each article takes up quite alot of space, but having a link (equal to the read more link), with "comment on this article (x comments)", which then slides down and reveals the comment box would be nice.

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

Jim,
Try the following styles. I think you'll like how it looks.. I just tested it on your layout, and I did current/smile Either way, it should get you much closer to what you're looking for. You'll need to add these to your templates CSS file, which looks to be:
http://tromsohockey.com/v2/plugins/syst … mplate.css

Your free to put it in whatever CSS file you want though, if you have a special preference.

Code:

.article-info {

left: 111px;
position: relative;
}
.jfbclike {
position: relative;
top: -18px;
height: 0px;
}

Try that out, and see if it works well. It may affect more pages that you want it to, in which case we can narrow down the styles to target specific types of pages.. but hopefully that will be a good starting point.

If you have any questions, just let us know!

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

Hum, adjusted it some and managed to get it dialed in at a new location. But when you hit like the "you liked X, comments?" popup shows half-way below the right module box area.

I still think it would be best to have the like-button to the left of the article info, like this

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

I've attached a shot of what it looks like for me in Chrome when I add the styles I put above. I'm not seeing those styles on your page at the moment. Can you implement them so we can see what it looks like? If you're seeing issues, let us know what browser you're using as well.

Hope that helps explain what we're seeing!

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

I must've managed to mess up something the first time because now it's working.

Any ideas on the comments-thing?

Re: Move Like-button into div article-tools

Jim,
I meant to mention the comment thing, but got sidetracked. Right now, there unfortunately isn't a way to do that. We've taken a note, and had some plans to modify the functionality of the comments in the future, and think we'll be able to do what you're looking for. It's not something that's native to the Facebook Comments box though, so it would be something we have to implement. It's not unreasonable, and again, it goes along with some other things we're planning to do.

Hope that helps explain, and thanks for the suggestion!
