Extending Social Jet Plugin (FAQ)

1. Optimize Title and Descriptions
The Social Jet WordPress Plugin allowed some level of extension from other plugin code. Take for example if you have All in One SEO Pack installed, you can use the aioseo plugin title and descriptions for social jet open-graph meta title and descriptions. Just simple add this to your theme functions.php

For Home Title and Single Post/Page Title

function add_dez_aioseo_title_meta() {
global $post,$aioseop_options;
$post_aioseo_title = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_aioseop_title', true);
$hometitle = $aioseop_options['aiosp_home_title'];
if ( is_singular() ) {
if ( function_exists('aioseop_load_modules') && $post_aioseo_title) {
$og_title = $post_aioseo_title;
} else {
$og_title = esc_attr( get_the_title() );
}
} else  {
if ( function_exists('aioseop_load_modules') && $hometitle) {
$og_title = $hometitle;
} else {
$og_title = get_bloginfo('name');
}
}
return $og_title;
}
add_filter('sj_opengraph_title','add_dez_aioseo_title_meta');

For Home Description and Single Post/Page Descriptions

function add_dez_aioseo_desc_meta() {
global $post,$aioseop_options;

$post_aioseo_desc = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_aioseop_description', true);
$homedesc = $aioseop_options['aiosp_home_description'];
if ( is_singular() ) {
if ( function_exists('aioseop_load_modules') && $post_aioseo_desc) {
$og_desc = $post_aioseo_desc;
} else {
$og_desc = esc_attr( get_the_excerpt() );
}
} else  {
if ( function_exists('aioseop_load_modules') && $homedesc) {
$og_desc = $homedesc;
} else {
$og_desc = get_bloginfo('description');
}
}
return $og_desc;
}
add_filter('sj_opengraph_desc','add_dez_aioseo_desc_meta');
2. Change Social Counter Icons
Open wp-content/plugins/social-jet/inc/social-counter/images/ you’ll see a list of images like sc-facebook.png, sc-twitter.png and more…
Just upload the same image name and extension into your current theme ‘images’ folder and the plugin will use the first detected social images inside your current theme ‘images’ folder.
3. Change Footer Schema Data
Add this to your theme functions.php

function dez_sj_add_schema_in_footer() {
$schema_pub .= '<span itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/WPFooter">';
$schema_pub .= '<span class="post-schema">';
$schema_pub .= '<span itemprop="name">MY HOME TITLE</span>';
$schema_pub .= '<span itemprop="description">MY HOME DESCRIPTIONS</span>';
$schema_pub .= '<span itemprop="url">MY HOME URL</span>';
$schema_pub .= '<span itemprop="copyrightYear">2003-2013</span>';
$schema_pub .= '</span></span>';
return $schema_pub;
}
add_filter('sj_get_footer_schema', 'dez_sj_add_schema_in_footer');
4. Recommended for bug free plugin usage
If you are using Mesocolumn WordPress Theme, delete schema.php and ‘addons’ folder.
5. How to change the default no image?
add this to your theme functions.php or custom-functions.php

function dez_sj_add_opengraph_home_img() {
return 'http://wwww.site.com/wp-content/uploads/your-img.ext';
}
add_filter('sj_opengraph_home_image', 'dez_sj_add_opengraph_home_img');

    • hi alvin, the plugin should have /languages/ folder with .mo and .po
      all text string were wrapped in __(‘text’, ‘sjplugin’);

      Member of DEZZAIN.COMAdministratorhi alvin, the plugin should have /languages/ folder with .mo and .po all text string were wrapped in __('text', 'sjplugin');
      • Ehh okay, I used the Codestyling Localization Pluging to add a Dutch .po and .mo and translated is there but nothing seems to happen on my sites what do I wrong?

        Public CommentUserEhh okay, I used the Codestyling Localization Pluging to add a Dutch .po and .mo and translated is there but nothing seems to happen on my sites what do I wrong?
        • try rename both the .po and .mo to
          socialjet_en_EN.po
          socialjet_en_EN.mo

          seem like this is a must-have condition en_EN for the localize plugin to work correctly.

          Member of DEZZAIN.COMAdministratortry rename both the .po and .mo to <code>socialjet_en_EN.po socialjet_en_EN.mo</code> seem like this is a must-have condition <strong>en_EN</strong> for the localize plugin to work correctly.
