Post Info Items and new plugins

I wanted to add some new options to the Post Info Items. An example would be this Share This

I have figured this much out
1. bfa_postinfo.php is where the code for the plugin and the %example% are coded. I noticed that is not the normal <php> that must plugins in use. I tried to code a plugin and failed
2. bfa_theme_options.php is where the description is held.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and when I finish the hacks I will post the code so you can expand your list of integrated plugins.

You're right, but you'd need a plugin template tag that does not print output, something like

PHP Code:
sharethis('echo=0'); 
A quick look revealed that share this may not have this. In that case you could try, in bfa_postinfo.php


PHP Code:
if (strpos($postinfo_string,'%share-this')!==false) {
######## SHARE THIS ########
if (function_exists('akst_share_link')) {
ob_start();
SHARE_THIS_TEMPLATE_TAGE_HERE
$share_this 
ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();
} else { 
$share_this ""; }

Then you should have the share this output inside $share_this and could, still in bfa_postinfo.php, (at the bottom where all the other replacements happen):

PHP Code:
$postinfo str_replace("%share-this%"$share_this$postinfo); 
And then add it as option to bfa_theme_options.php

I have not tried this. If you want to try this, please let me know if it worked.

I've been looking at this and not quite clear exactly where you are suggesting I insert the additional code - could you clarify perhaps? I'd love to use this as Share This is a more powerful tool (in my opinion) than sociable.

To clarify, I can't find postinfo.php anywhere.

Sorry and thanks for finding this. It should have been bfa_postinfo.php located at functions/bfa_postinfo.php

It's fixed now in the post above

The reason I chose Sociable is that Share This requires using an offsite service if memory serves right

Further clarification - found what I should edit, tried the above code - didn't work.
Here is what I tried exactly:
Code:
if (strpos($postinfo_string,'%share-this')!==false) {
######## SHARE THIS ########
if (function_exists('akst_share_link')) {
ob_start();
if (function_exists('sharethis_button')) { sharethis_button(); } 
$share_this = ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();
} else { $share_this = ""; }
}
I have also tried this:
Code:
if (strpos($postinfo_string,'%share-this')!==false) {
######## SHARE THIS ########
if (function_exists('sharethis_button')) {
$share_this = sharethis_button();}
}
With this at the bottom:
Code:
$postinfo = str_replace("%share-this%", $share_this, $postinfo);
For clarification - this is the Share-This template tag:
Code:
<?php if (function_exists('sharethis_button')) { sharethis_button(); } ?>
I'm sure there is something simple I'm missing?

After you did the code additions in bfa_postinfo.php as described in post #2, you'd have to add %share-this% to one of the textareas at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Post/Page Info Items

I'm sorry Flynn - I should have mentioned I did include the %share-this% to no avail. I'm going to go back and try again to see if perhaps I missed something.

Tried again in multiple combinations - still no dice.

Plus the share this plugin needs to be installed (=uploaded) and activated

Oh I definitely have Share this uploaded and activated - I still am not having any success. I'm sorry for being such a pain. I think I don't understand the code enough to see what I should be doing - this is a bit beyond my novice php abilities.

.... okay, not really.

But I did fix the problem and it's so stupid I'm going to beat myself for a few hours now.

PHP Code:
if (strpos($postinfo_string,'%share-this')!==false) {
######## SHARE THIS ########
if (function_exists('sharethis_button')) {
ob_start();
sharethis_button();
$share_this ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();
} else { 
$share_this ""; }

This code at the bottom was 100% right.

PHP Code:
$postinfo str_replace("%share-this%"$share_this$postinfo);
