    Please review this add-on, if you like it. This helps other people to decide and gives us a little smile back for this free and very essential add-on each performant web site needs.

    Description:
    Social Share Privacy add-on enables your Xenforo website to load the icons for social sharing websites from your local server.

    This offers 2 advantages:

    1.) Greatly enhances the speed of your web site
    Due to the fact your visitors won't have to wait until code from external web sites has been loaded, the response of your web site will be much speedier and the load time of all your web pages will improve significantly.

    2) Greatly improves the privacy of all your web site visitors data
    If you open a web page that contains buttons from services like Facebook, your visit can be tracked by them even if you don't click the button. If you are logged in at Facebook, that information could even be linked to your real identity. Because almost all web sites contain such social share buttons, these networks are able to track which websites users are visiting and are able to build fairly complete browser histories of all web surfers.

    When you load up your site with sharing buttons you’re — unwittingly perhaps — enabling those companies to track your visitors and also the general usage of your web site, whether your users use the buttons and their accompanying social networks or not.

    This add-on protects the privacy of your web site and your users by only loading these buttons after a first initial click. Before that a dummy image will be displayed. There is also an option for your users to activate a specific button permanently, if they wish to do so.

    Add-On also includes an optional german language file.

    Current compatibility: XenForo 1.2.x, 1.3.x. 1.4.x
    Sorry, can not be installed or used with Xenforo 1.1.x or smaller.

    Installation:
    Step 1:
    Upload everything from the "upload" directory into your web servers forum directory.

    Step 2:
    Install "addon-wmt_socialshareprivacy-10*.xml" in your Xenforo ACP as a new addon.

    Step 3:
    Access "ACP > Home > Options > [WMTech] Social Share Privacy" to setup the options of this add-on.

    This release can be installed or upgraded using Auto-Installers

    Available Options for admin from Xenforo ACP:
    >> 3 global positions (bottom, sidebar and media gallery), can be enabled individually
    >> 3 services (Facebook, Twitter and Google+), can be enabled individually
    >> "Permanent" option for each service can be enabled individually
    >> Local icons can be designed and configured individually

    Available Options for your users:
    If a user doesn't care about his privacy and rather want the "Like" buttons to be always enabled he can do so in the settings menu, accessed via the gear icon. This is done via cookies, valid for all pages of your web site.

    Copyright Removal:
    This add-on features a small copyright notice in the footer of your web site. If you would like to remove the copyright, please purchase a Branding Removal License from us. You can find several options for that at our website http://wmtech.net/.

    Screenshots:
    Attached are several screenshots of this add-on. You can see the ACP options panel with all it's settings and some screenshots of the actual share buttons in sidebar and bottom locations. You can also see info popups and the settings menu available for your customers.

    Disclaimer:
    There will be no support for this addon except within this thread. And even then, it won't be guaranteed. We will provide updates to this addon should the need arise. But we can provide no guarantee for that also. The add-on has been tested and is hopefully bug free.

    We reserve all rights to the code in this addon. It is based at free code from german web site "Heise Online" and may not be distributed, modified or unmodified, in whole or part without our written consent.

    Thank you, and we hope this add-on helps with your forum too.
