Social media button not loading

Hello. I’m trying to get the social media button working on my site but nothing is happening. I’m putting this snipped in my template, copied from the plugin itself: <?php echo espresso_show_social_media($event_id, 'facebook'); ?> I get a “call to undefined function” error. Ideas?

Hi Josh,

The social media buttons should appear on there own once the addon has been enabled:

Are you seeing any errors on the page if you inspect it with a tool like Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools?

I don’t see any errors that should break the page. The link.

It looks like the registration page has been modified. It is possible then that the code for the social tags to appear has been removed or commented out.

You could test by temporarily renaming the uploads/espresso directory to force the plugin to use the default template files.

If the social media icons appear, then you will need to re-examine your modified templates.

You may also want to empty your site and/or browser cache as it’s possible the links are not appearing because you are viewing a cached page.
