WordPress Plugins – Simple Share Buttons Adder
Recently I have a WordPress project , when I about to complete it , there is a request to add social media sharing buttons on the single content page, I was thinking this is a easy task there are so many social media sharing plugin out there, but the only catch is it need to be support Tumblr sharing. It’s a bit rare that the client request for Tumblr sharing , most of the common request is Facebook and Twitter , some time Google+.
So I thought this should be an easy task and started my plugin searching journey, after spending few hour to search, download and testing , most of the plugin cannot make it.
These are some of the reasons :
- Plugins which is part of big site like Addthis / Shareaholic require you to register an account first before you can use the plugin
- Plugins which is very complex to use.
- Plugins which is not working.
- Plugins without Tumblr sharing.
- Plugins with ugly icons.
- Plugins with poor setting page.
lucky after few hours trial and error, I found this plugin call Simple Share Buttons Adder , some of the features are
- easy to set up and use
- the default icons are good and you are allowed to replace with your own set of icons.
- there are other setting for you to tweak for example shall it display the share count,the size of the button etc.
- it support Tumblr
- quite lightweight
these are all the social media site that support and it support email and print too.
Highly recommend if you looking for a simple and easy solution to make your site easier for sharing among social media, I have replace my old plugin on this site too.
