You can select which social sharing buttons show on the specified area with this new configuration. Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard to select multiple items in each box.
You’re able to add social buttons to individual CMS pages, by using our new CMS Widget. Simply go to the content of the CMS page you wish to add social buttons to, and click on Magento’s "Insert Widget..." button. You’ll see the “MageRewards Social Buttons” option there.
Social features are at times target for abuse by customers. For example, customers are sometimes able to cancel a social action before submission, and because of the privacy factor of social networks, we’re not always able to verify if a social action was actually carried out or not.
To combat abuse scenarios like this, in addition to encouraging smaller reward allocations towards social features, we’ve implemented a simple, yet powerful security mechanism to limit social earnings per day, per week, per month, per year, and per lifetime of a customer’s account.
Each limit will count the number of times points have been awarded to the customer for all social actions. Customers will be notified of exceeding such limits on the front-end, if any limits have been set by the administrator. The counts will reset at the end of the calendar period of each limit. For example, Daily earning counts will reset at 12am every day and weekly earning counts will reset on the first day of the week (usually Sunday) at 12am!
The new functionality allows you to set configuration settings for social rewards per store view and website in your Magento admin-panel.
