@zack06007 It looks to me like this plugin isn't being actively maintained and I don't even see it in the main WordPress.org repository anymore. It's also possible that with the recent WP 4.7 update some of the functionalities have broken further. The last commit to the code was almost a year and a half ago with the bulk of the code being even older.

If you'd like to maintain a lot of this functionality in a better way with some smaller discrete plugins I would recommend the following:

  • JetPack or Social Media Network Poster for syndicating/sharing your content to Facebook, Twitter, et al. JetPack is simpler to set up, but SNAP provides a lot more customization and has some good documentation.
  • IndiwWeb Plugin for WordPress - This will allow you to add some sub-plugins like Webmention and some simple comment plugins which will let your comments/likes/etc. come back to your pages and posts. The Syndication Links plugin within the IndieWeb plugin will allow you to easily display which services you syndicated individual content.
  • Brid.gy - Connecting to this free service will give you comments, likes, and reactions from major social hubs like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, G+, and Flicker to come back to your original content in a pretty way. It is expandable to other platforms if you'd like to contribute to the code base. Bridgy uses their open APIs to bootstrap the new W3C Webmention spec to send the comments back to your site using the Webmention plugin within the IndieWeb Plugin mentioned above. Webmention is essentially an internet wide @mention functionality much like Twitter and Medium have.

If you need more help in setting these up or using them, feel free to visit http://indieweb.org/WordPress which has lots of documentation or ask in the IndieWeb chat where someone can help point you in the right direction.

The IndieWeb plugin does have quite a few related plugins which all interact well, but you don't necessarily need them all. You can obviously pick and choose based on the specific functionality you'd like to have. Their modularity helps to make understanding what sets of functionality each piece provides a lot easier.

In particular the two that will recreate most of the requested functionality of wp-social above are Webmention and Semantic Linkbacks. These provide an endpoint that Bridgy can target to send your comments and likes from other social media sites. To my knowledge, they don't require any settings or set up other than uploading and activation.

The other sub-plugins within the larger IndieWeb suite add supplementary functionality if you want/need it. This also helps to cut down on code bloat which can slow your site down. In fact, if you only want a few in the suite, you can install them separately from the larger plugin. The others also help to not only extend functionality, but to better automate portions of it.

They are all also are being actively developed/supported on GitHub.

Is there any interest from CrowdFavorite in transferring hosting responsibilities for the app, or at least making available instructions for hosting your own and pointing a site at it?

Either that or at least make it easy for an individual user to set up the hosted parts that's currently the responsibility of CF. But I'd need some communication from them before I can do anything.

Contact with Mailchimp they were the responsibles for that. They answered me that they don't give support but may give you rights to do it.

It looks like you can control the url of the proxy, but without the code for the proxy app, it doesn't really help much.

Based on this conversation in Twitter, https://twitter.com/cswordpress/status/816949099689873409 the original maintainer of the plugin passed away in 2015. The proxy seems to be the key, but tracking it down may be the hardest part, especially if MailChimp didn't /doesn't have it.

Earlier today in the IndieWeb chat there was some brief conversation about possibly pursuing this: https://chat.indieweb.org/2017-02-23#t1487863923718000

Yeah, I knew he passed away :'(. Cancer, I think.

The plugin continued to function, until Mailchimp stopped supporting the proxy. That's really the main issue; that and then publishing an update to the plugin to either point to the new proxy or allow a user to setup & configure their own.

As I mentioned above, I'm happy to help out however I can, but I unfortunately don't see a way forward at this point unless someone can get in contact with the folks @ Mailchimp to get access to the proxy code.

Hey everyone,

Nate from the MailChimp dev crew here. Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of the contents of that proxy, we can't open source it for the community. We shut down the middleware service entirely at the end of last year, which means that you would have to run your own proxy. We definitely appreciate the interest in the plugin, though, and I wish you all the best of luck in its revival!

Let me know if you have any feedback I can pass along to the rest of the team. .

Thanks so much.

Hey @mAAdhaTTah --

Unfortunately the technical explanation goes beyond what we can comfortably discuss here on the Github forums. But since the code is open source, you should be able to chat with a third-party developer about how to set up a service like that. Thanks again for your interest in the plugin!

Hi @nranson,

I am a developer, and I'd like to set up a proxy at least my own use, and look into setting it up for the community if appropriate. If you'd prefer, we can chat offline. My email is jamesorodig@gmail.com – please shoot me an email.

When we say "proxy," I'm assuming this is an application of some sort that is registered with Facebook and sits between the user's site & Facebook. Obviously, that holds some sensitive information, hence the concern you have discussing this here, but I'd really like to see what we can do to make this plugin useful to users again.

Thanks again for your help.

I never got an email. I poked around my contacts, but I couldn't get in contact with anyone who knows anything about this. I haven't done anything more than that since like April.

I'm still interested, if someone from MailChimp is willing to contact me and hand over the keys, so to speak, but I've hit a dead end and have no other leads.

SNAP, as it's known for short, is great at syndicating WordPress content to a variety of social media silos (though it requires a paid subscription/pro account for several). It also pulls back comments from Twitter and Facebook on a limited basis; doing this can also be pretty resource intensive as well as their other caveats. I still find that the Indieweb method of enabling the Webmention plugin and configuring brid.gy is still probably the most robust method of replacing MailChimp Social.
