    has anyone used social share with Umbraco? I have it working but I was wondering if anyone new how to auto assign the urltoshare property based on the current page. There is an umbraco tag for the current page ($current_page/@id), but when I try and insert this into the property UrlToShare I get an invalid id.

    Hello Colin,

    The RadSocialShare uses the URL of the current page (location.href to be more precise) when no other properties are set, so I suggest you leave this logic up to the control. More information on the order of precedence for the UrlToShare and TitleToShare properties can be found here: As for the UrlToShare server property - it takes a string that can be root-relative (e.g. "~/mypage.aspx") but I am not familiar with this tag from Umbraco and I doubt it will resolve properly in the code.
