    i took a look at the Amazing Social Sidebox and its truly amazing
    a very valuable tool for social networing
    got everything installed (btw installing was a breeze)
    however i notice some quirks
    i try to use the tweet button but upon mouseover the panel with the buttons that pops up
    dissapears. my guess is it is related to the CSS (just a guess)


    any ideas on how to correct this?

    Since most of us don't use that mod, you'll probably have to provide a link to the site so we can see the issue ourselves.

    Well, I'm trying this mod as it's designed for ZC150.
    I found it owesome :) Special thanks to brandonturpin.
    If I'm correct (to be confirmed by brandonturpin), the pop up 'Share This Page" is designed purposely to shows only the "numberring" in a glace. To do the tweet, just click on the tweet button "follow @.." (right below FB button).
    Btw, I also have doubt on the "appId=162410943835993" on subscribe_sidebox.php, I've tried to change the appID to my own appID, but it makes no different.
    Besides that, the <div id="fb-root"></div> is duplicated, one with appId, and another nope. I tried to remove the second one, it makes no different as well. Guess the above two doubts are just for experimental purpose on not live website.
    Lastly, should I follow the msg "<!-- Place this tag in the <head> of your document -->" ? It's not stated at readme file. However, I tried to paste it before the <head> of html_header.php and it makes no different too.

    Thanks, more ppl try it on, hopefully, and share the result with us.

    I am glad you have found this helpfull.

    First off there are 2 parts to the sidebox, the first one is the links in the box. These are ment for a direct link to your social profiles. A way for visitors to follow or friend your profile.

    The drop down box labeled "share this page" is intended to use those same social media avenues for your customers to share the page. If they find something they like on your page. They can "share" that page on their profile. So if its a good products then it will post the page that product is on on their profile or timeline.

    So each had a different role and is important with social media.

    On the subscribe_sidebox.php there are 2 different <div id="fb-root"></div> because there are 2 different facebook applications on the sidebox. The follow and share button. You should not edit or change these for your profile. You should go to the page

    includes > languages > english > extra_definitions > subscribe_sidebox.php

    (note that the file you were editing - includes > modules> sideboxes > subscribe_sidebox.php - has the same name but is a different file)

    On that page there is a link to your profile, and those are the only links you should have to change.

    You should not change anything on this page. The section that says <!-- Place this tag in the <head> of your document --> by being on this page is already being included in the head of the pages. You should not more or edit anything on this page.

    I visited your website and they seem to work for me, what browser are you using and I can try to figure out what is causing it.

    Confirmed that it's tricky in IE9, acts like some drop down menus, sometimes they don't hold and disappear.

    Works in my Firefox and Chrome.

    Speaking of drop down menus, your second to bottom category Local Pick Up and Delivery, the subcategories nearly disappear due to color blending: all my browsers.
