URL available in HTML block?
« on: March 08, 2019, 10:14:54 PM »
I'd like to make a Facebook Share link on individual product pages, so visitors can share the product pages with their friends. Seems I could make a custom HTML block to show the link. Are there field codes available in the HTML editor that I can embed the current URL? Or another trick to accomplish something like the attachment here shows.

Thank you. It looks like an easy implementation, but I'm hoping for something even simpler and without oversharing to fourth parties.

Stumbled across this code for a Wordpress implementation. Would something similar work with AbanteCart? Are php variables accessible in this manner?

<a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" target="_blank">Share on Facebook</a>

Found a solution, I think. Any drawbacks to this?

<a href="#" onclick="window.open('https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u='+encodeURIComponent(location.href),'facebook-share-dialog','width=626,height=436');return false;">Share on Facebook</a>

PHP vars are not accessible in HTML.
