Free Social Analytics Plugin by AddShoppers Rate Topic   * * * * * 3 votes

 

Posted 02 July 2012 - 05:42 PM #1

Hello everyone,

We've brought our free social commerce analytics platform to CS-Cart with this plugin. This plugin, along with a free AddShoppers.com account, will allow you to easily install the following social apps on your CS-Cart store:

Social Analytics

Our advanced social analytic app reveals deep insights into the ROI of social sharing and report down to the product level. All social analytics reports can be broken down by product, influencer, or social network.

ROI Tracking

Using this app, you can find out how much a Like, Tweet, Pin, etc is worth to your business.

Sharing Buttons & Social Rewards

Our sharing buttons allow you to identify Influencers and track your social shares. Combine our sharing buttons with Social Rewards to incentivize sharing with coupons, increase sharing and encouraging shoppers to not abandon the checkout process in search of a coupon code.

Post Purchase Sharing

This app adds a sharing popup message to your checkout success page to prompt your customers to share their purchase with their friends. To use this app, simply configure it on the add-on settings page.

About Multi-Language Support

If you're using one or more non-English languages in your CS-Cart, we'll automatically detect the language that you've chosen and translate the sharing panel if we have a translation available. Here is the list of languages that we support currently:
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Slovak
  • German
  • Portuguese
  • Czech
  • Greek
  • Lithuanian
  • Azerbaijani
  • Turkish
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
Is your language not available? PM me if you're interested in translating AddShoppers into your language :)

Hi nassmall,

Social Rewards need to be set up in your AddShoppers dashboard here: https://www.addshopp...#social-rewards. You don't have to do anything in your CS-Cart admin for this (other than creating the coupon to use as a social reward). Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

Thank you AddShoppers.

Yes, I did setup the rewards social at the addshoppers dashboard,
it is working fine now, thank you,

I still have other questions:-

1- how would I activate ROI feature, where should I copy the code provided, where is the (checkout success page)?, I tried to put it on the checkout page, but the code is not working.

2- on the sharing buttons, I am trying to add more buttons, when click on the (Pinterest & More) and than chose the icon of the Pinterset and StumbleUpon, none of them is get on the site. besides I can not chose both of them or more ??

3- even when choosing a different icon for facebook or twitter, even if I change the button style, still only one still shows on the store front. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG ?

4- My site has 2 languages, is there way to translate the addon, so when user switch between the language it gets reflected on the addon popup window?

Thank you guys

Hi nassmall,

Let's go through these one by one:

1. As long as you have our plugin installed and configured correctly with your Shop ID, the ROI Tracking code is already added to your site (unless you unchecked the "Track Conversions" option under the add-on settings).

2. You'll have to use the Custom Button Code field under the add-on settings. Grab the code for all of the buttons that you want to display in your AddShoppers dashboard and then paste it in the Custom Button Code field (back in your CS-Cart admin, under our plugin's settings), save, and clear cache.

3. I'm not 100% sure what you mean here but the instructions in #2 should apply here as well - use Custom Button Code and make sure to clear cache.

4. Multi-language support is currently under development :)

Hope this helps!

Thank you Addshoppers,

but I did all instruction mentioned, it is not working,
please check the attached file (screen shots), you will see the "Track Conversions" option is checked, I did clear the cache, but ROI still not active at the Addshoppers admin, pages, as showing.
I also copy the customized button code, to the addon setting, (showing in the screen shot) save and clear the cache, unfortunately, I got a coding showing in the store front, also showing on the file attached, when I check back the addon setting, I found out that the code is different than the code should be copied, which I think it got change after saving the addon setting, for some reason.
I tried several times, same results every time.
any idea what is going on??!!

Hi AddShoppers this looks very interesting - I've installed this without any issues :)

One little thing though: I still get the message "Waiting to detect the Social Analytics javascript code before other apps will work.

Not sure what I need to do - I follwoed the instructions above.

Hey posto,

You're a star! That worked perfectly :) Thank you!

For anyone else experiencing the problem, I changed that bit of code within
/skins/basic/customer/addons/addshoppers/hooks/products/buttons_block.post.tpl

I've never used an addon like this so it will be interesting to see if it increases sharing.


AddShoppers - I have a couple of questions:

1. I put that bit of Social Analytics javascript code in the Google Analytics hook :P As I wasn't sure where to put it. What's the better location? When will addshopper.com detect the code? (the orginal flashing bar is sooo annoying.

2. Curses. forgotten what I was going to ask.

Found a bug that will stop you from usingcertain button styles as the Customer Code container is not big enough.

e.g.

If I want to use the following style (your most popular one):


<div class="share-buttons-multi">
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-fb-like" data-style="button_count"></div>
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-tweet" data-style="horizontal"></div>
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-gplus" data-style="medium_bubble"></div>
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-panel" data-style="wide_h" data-counter="true" data-oauth="true" data-hover="true"></div>
</div>


it will save as:


<div class="share-buttons-multi">
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-fb-like" data-style="button_count"></div>
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-tweet" data-style="horizontal"></div>
<div class="share-buttons share-buttons-gplus" data-style=

I found another problem, if you have different options (e.g. Sizes) then the addon will disappear if the user changes options. I've onyl tested with one option.

Feature Request - It would be nice if the picture the user last selected is the one that get's submitted (to FB).

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay in responding, it seems my CS-Cart Forums email notifications aren't working?

Anyway, let's see if I can address everything:

First, the v3 plugin has been updated to unescape custom button code, however, if you're adding custom button code, please see below first.

Custom Button Code on CS-Cart v3
It looks like CS-Cart v3 limits the number of characters in textarea fields for add-on settings, so the Custom Button Code field can only hold a certain number of characters. If you're trying to add custom button code longer than ~250 characters (which seems to be the limit), you'll have to add it manually (see instructions below).

Custom Button Code on CS-Cart v2
CS-Cart v2 seems to strip out HTML tags from add-on settings text fields, so the Custom Button Code field doesn't work (see instructions below for installing custom button code).

Instructions for Adding Custom Button Code Manually
First, uncheck the "Show Sharing Buttons" checkbox under the add-on settings for AddShoppers. Then, add your button code in the template where you want the buttons to appear. The exact location is up to you, but if you're not sure where to add it then try adding it to /skins/YOUR_ACTIVE_THEME/customer/blocks/product_template/YOUR_ACTIVE_PRODUCT_TEMPLATE and paste your sharing button code where you want the buttons to appear.

If you're not sure what your active product template is, it's probably default_template.tpl. It would only be something else if you have changed your "Product detailed page layout" setting.


AddShoppers - I have a couple of questions:

1. I put that bit of Social Analytics javascript code in the Google Analytics hook :P As I wasn't sure where to put it. What's the better location? When will addshopper.com detect the code? (the orginal flashing bar is sooo annoying.


You shouldn't have to put the Social Analytics code anywhere as long as you have the plugin installed and your Shop ID entered. What's the URL to your store? I can take a look at it and see if it's installed. The flashing bar should go away as soon as you track your first view.


I found another problem, if you have different options (e.g. Sizes) then the addon will disappear if the user changes options. I've onyl tested with one option.

Feature Request - It would be nice if the picture the user last selected is the one that get's submitted (to FB).


I see what you mean about the buttons disappearing -- we're working on the best way to fix this issue.

Thanks everyone for your interest! Please let me know if I missed anything.

hi AddShoppers,

Thank you for the response. I did what you said and the longer html code now works :)

I've PM'd you my site url and addshopperID, could you take a look please?

I'm sure the addshopper code is loading once only but feel free to take a peek.
Also:

1. something odd is happing in the sense that the ShopReward red tag does not appear next to Facebook (but does with other social sites).
2. There appears to be a large gap between the Tweet icon and the Pin It icon
3. Should the currency mark i.e. "£" be appearing when the page is about to be posted? You'll see on my site it does not.

Thanks for your help. Although my site is new, the stats you guys extract are very interesting to look through :)

 

Posted 27 July 2012 - 05:33 PM #19

Having trouble replying here....I have updated the add-ons to solve the issues where buttons are disappearing when changing size/color and currency code isn't showing up.

apple, please check your PM box... it's not letting me reply to your post here.
