This is a very simple and FAT FREE share button plugin that adds Google plus one, Facebook and Twitter share buttons to your blog posts.
Why Use This Plugin (Advantages of this Plugin)
There are many, many Social sharing plugins available for WordPress but I needed one that is ultra lightweight and compact so it does not affect the page load time of my site (I don’t like to add heavyweight plugin to my sites).
The following are the main advantages of this plugin:
- Loads on single view only (only in your single posts)
- Only 3 share buttons for the ones that really matters (Google plus, Facebook, Twitter)
- It shows the share buttons in a compact form (takes up less real estate of your webpage)
Obviously this plugin will not full-fill everyone’s need but if you have similar requirement(s) like mine then this plugin should help you out (a lot of our customers have noticed the use of this plugin on our site and requested us to release it).
When you install this plugin it will add the share buttons at the end of your WordPress posts which will look like the following:
Plugin Installation and Usage
- Go to the ‘Add New’ plugins screen in your WordPress admin area
- Click the ‘upload’ tab
