How to use php current page title in dynamic site

How to use php current page title in dynamic site

Is there a way to add the like and share buttons to the header of a dynamic site and have the extension use the current page as the url? For example, I have a header include that I install the extension on and I want the like button to use the url of the current page, even if it contains url parameters.

That would make this really handy for custom cms projects as well as larger dynamic sites.

Thanks for any help,

Tony

sure when adding the like or share buttons, set the URL to:

php:
http://<?php echo((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:""?><?php echo((isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]))?$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""?>

Hi Jason,

And thanks for the quick response! Should have thought of that one myself!

Thanks again,

Getting an error message

Hi Jason,

The URL trick worked for getting the wall post and like reference, but now I'm getting an error message:


The page at conferences.php could not be reached.

Conferences.php is the page with the like button on it. Not sure why it's trying to connect to facebook like this, but it's clearly generated by either the extension or facebook.

Any idea what this might mean?

Thanks,

Tony

Page link

Ok, here's a link to a page (test page) with the FB like button on it. You can see the error after clicking the like button.

conferences-test.php

Thanks,

Wall Post Works

Hi Jason,

Thought I'd mention that the like functionality does work. It creates the post on your wall, but you can't unlike it afterward and once you've liked it the error shows.

Hope that helps and thanks for looking into this.

I see, the like link is missing the domain.

In the like behavior, set the URL TO:

http://www.tg2artists.com<?php echo((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:"") ?><?php echo((isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]))?$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:"") ?>
