Can I somewow make the script auto-show the content IF a user have already liked the Fan Page?

I purchased this plugin for my blog but its unreliable and not working all the time. I had to remove your scripts being injected into the head as i was already calling them asynchronously.

Can you take a look here please and let me know what the issue is?

Hi,

Is there any way you can send admin details and FTP details to us here: https://smashed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new ?

Thank you!

Hi,

1.Does it support to auto appear on all post, i have ~5000 posts will be very hard to add it manualy , and can be add it at the end of the post, to lock only the end of post?

2.Does this work with W3 Total Cache?

3.How it remembers who liked, after cookie?

Best regards

Hi,

You can surely use a plugin to insert the shortcode at the beginning of all posts. Shoot us an email if you need help with that: https://smashed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new Another option would be to use Viral Lock PHP. It is really easy to integrate and then you can integrate it into your theme so that every post gets it at that specific place, without editing any posts. This will apply to new and old posts. We’re also always here to help you out if you need further help with any of our plugins.

Hey guys, How to change the Tweet message of Viral-lock withing the viral-lock.php? Right now (when a person tweets to unlock) the tweet consists of post’s name followed by the URL of the post. I would like to add a general message before those two.

Thanks!

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

You use the shortcode paramter tweet=”This is my tweet” you can also have individual URLs for the different social networks, so you can have on link for twitter by using turl=”www.mysite.com/twitter”. All of these are covered in the manual, some of them are in the update parts such as New in 1.2. Let me know if you need more help!

Hope it helps!

How about a function that allows people who don’t use social networks to share by email and reveal content?

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

That is a good idea! I’ll keep that in mind for future releases.

Thank you!

Hey, good plugin, have installed it on my site. Is there any way to remove the facebook element – really only looking for +1’s or tweets?

Also can I change the order so +1 appear above the tweet button?

Thanks, Eamonn

WESMASHEDIT

Hi Eamonn,

Sure you can, if you send us an e-mail here https://smashed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new I’ll send you a version where I removed Facebook.

just purchased this & am testing it now.

once the link is revealed are others able to share the link to the content & access it directly without ‘unlocking’?

for example, if someone ‘unlocked’ the content & then copy/pasted the direct link to the content & sent it to someone else, could that other person access it without ‘unlocking’?

thanks!

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

Apologies for this once again. Here’s the answer to your qauestion:

No they cannot unless the content unlocked is actually a link. Viral Lock locks a part of the page, so the user is never sent to a new page. So if they copy the page url it will be to the locked page.

Hope it helps!

Ok, thanks. So if I’m linking to a zip file like http://mysite/myfile.zip, people will be able to access it directly if they know the link. It would be great to add something to this script that prevents direct downloads to a file if the page is not ‘unlocked’. Thx!

WESMASHEDIT

It is possible to do that, and that is actually included in Viral Download which is also on here. But Viral Lock has more features and is more up to date. So here are the files and instructions you need to hotlink protect:

Take care!

Hi,

I want to buy this plugin but first i have a question. Is it possible to like and share all the available social medias to unlock an item?

Example:

If i want that a user first share and like on facebook and than twitter than he should able to get the downloaded item.

Waiting for your response.

Regards,

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

No, only one social media needed for unlocking.

ok dont get this plugin… i used it on a page it added the viral lock code the box is showing up… but its not locking anything. whats going on

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

Did you place any content inbetween the shortcode tags? Only that part will be locked on the page. Not the whole page.

Default-user

yes it works now.. i locked some videos.

WESMASHEDIT

Great!

I locked 30 posts. Now question. Is there any global way of viewing all unlocked (liked/twits pages) pages? e.g.how many unlocks etc..some kind of statistics? You know its hard to open everyday 30 pages to see if someone like it/unlocked it.

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

Unfortunately there aren’t any statistics collected from the plugin. It’s possible that Facebook can give you those stats if the Like buttons are pointing to a Facebook page.

PRESALE QUESTION

Hi! i´m interested on this item… just one question,

I want to hide a link that is generated inside my php template page… so the code to hide wil be on the php is possible to do it?

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

If you purchase Viral Lock PHP then yes, that’s exactly what it will do.

Happy Holidays! :)

Is it compatible with wordpress 3.8 or 3.8.1 ???

WESMASHEDIT

It sure is!

I’ve bought the plugin but am noticing some problems with it. The Facebook and Google+ button is unlocking it as intended but the Twitter button isn’t unlocking anything when clicked.

Could you test this? http://lunartemplates.com/2014/roran-free-one-page-psd-website-template/

VHDesign

It’s working as intended now. I guess there was a delay.

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

Glad to hear that everything is ok now. We’re here for you if you need help with anything else.

Hm, i kinda managed it to do good, but after clicking like page wont refresh, duno why.

Default-user

WESMASHED.IT can you please answer me ?

WESMASHEDIT

Hi. Apologies for the delay! This likely has something to do with something else on your site or the way it’s integrated. It could also be a host issue. Does the demo script work if you upload it as it is and just editing your FB, Twitter info? Could you email us back on the support portal and we’ll look closer at it? https://smashed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new

Thank you!

Does it work for other websites like for blogger?

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

Viral Lock works with Wordpress only; Viral Lock PHP works with PHP based websites.

Default-user

So can you create for blogger or have some any suggestion! Cause i really want to buy it!

WESMASHEDIT

Hi,

We’re very sorry, but for the moment there aren’t any plans to build a blogger plugin.

I installed here http://www.carabelajarseo.org/trick-seo-membuat-ratusan-blog-gratis-dengan-cepat-tekhnik/ but why user need to refresh page before continue reading? please help.

WESMASHEDIT

Sorry that you had to wait. The ticket system backend was down on friday/saturday and now I’m actually in the middle of moving into a new home this week and I don’t have Internet set up yet. I’m working out of coffee shops as much as I can to keep up. Everything should be up and running as normal within the next few days.

I’ll try and get to your e-mail as soon as possible.

jasaseoindonesia

I reply your email already with my personal email. Thanks

WESMASHEDIT

Great!

This is a pretty interesting idea, but I get the feeling that it could also backfire and or piss off your readers, causing them to quit coming to your blog. It’s like you’re saying to people “please recommend this before you’ve even read it”

I’m curious has anyone received negative feedback on this?

WESMASHEDIT

Well since you can lock only parts of the page you can have half the post unlocked and then lock another part of the article for people that want to keep reading. It’s all about giving something valuable away that people are ready and want to tweet/fb about. No complaints about that to me :)

i’m interested in this plugin but i have some questions:

Can i specify an image to include when shared to sites like twitter/facebook/google+?

Can i customize the style for the layout of the locker box as i please (as long as i know css)?

Can i costumize the message / topic of message sent to social sites or will it automatically grab the url title?

Thanks!

WESMASHEDIT

Yes you can, you would use an OpenGraph tag on your site to tell Facebook what image to grab. This would be most conveniently done with a free plugin like this one so you can add specific OG tags to pages or posts: https://wordpress.org/plugins/open-graph-protocol-in-posts-and-pages/

Yes you can, there is a custom.css file in the plugin folder with the 4 classes used so it’s really easy to edit.

You sure can, for facebook you would use the same plugin as above, the same goes for G+ as it supports OpenGraph as well. And for twitter you can set the message individually for every lock with every lock you create in the plugin.

No es compatible con Chek Editor for Wordpress… esto para mi es un problema.. ¿Con qué editor es compatible?

WESMASHEDIT

I’m not sure what that is and I don’t understand the language. Please let me know in English what the issue is and I’ll look into it.
