  • Cc added

You can only share URLs (not texts) with Google Plus. But I agree that this is misleading, since the text above implies that you can share the number.

@Sven: So should we change the text then or rather ignore this?

  • Status changed from assigned to new

The assigned state will be dropped by #403

This might be combined with #142

known problem but google+ doesn't deliver the option to prefill the text that a user want to share. therefore we give users the option to click the g+ icon to share the numbers manually as the best solution here.

Obviously not working.

...but it sounds like you decided to not change anything, so it is rejected.

I came across this issue when I was testing the following one from Passbrains:

After doing some research, I found this information from the Google developers' website where it seems it is possible to add prefilled text:

Would it be possible to implement a preset share text as described in the website (data-prefilltext)?

I'm pretty sure that this didn't exist back then. But it might be an option now.

The linked documentation refers to Google's JavaScript API but we are currently using the "Share Link" functionality which still only allows us to specify URL and language.

Therefore we'd have to switch to the JavaScript API (e.g. within a sandboxed iFrame) which would only be possible under the condition that it can be used securely within an extension environment. In any case, this would require us to rethink how we implement the share buttons on the icon popup. That's why I'd consider it out of scope for now.
