Tagged: social sharing
I’m looking for tips/tricks to have customized social sharing buttons at the bottom of a post. I’d like to be able to change the color on initial view and hover. I’d also like to be able to adjust the size. I’d also like it to show the count for the sharing.
I haven’t found a plugin that lets me do all of these things, but I’m sure there is one I’m missing.http://www.krizzydesigns-test.com/test1/
Jetpack sharing does all that.
You can also drag out the sharing module and install it as a standalone plugin.
If so, I don’t see the option to change the color of the icons, etc. Maybe I’m missing something or I have the wrong one?
@Braddalton I’m not following what you mean by using the module all on its own. Forgive me if that’s a silly question.
You linked to a plugin which is the sharing module on its own without Jetpack.
Did you install it and add the CSS code i wrote, tested and published on my site?
Thank you @braddalton, I thought you meant to use something else. Yes, I have it working, but for some reason,
can’t edit the width properly to match that of the site, can’t reduce the font size (I’ve been messing with firebug as well as adding css and it won’t change:(
Got the width..I was adding the 100% in the wrong spot. Can’t figure out changing the fonts of the buttons.
Never mind figured that all out! Now I’m just thinking about swapping the text for background images, but have to see how the numbers look.
@braddalton is there a way to use the hooks to put the social sharing under the meta data, maybe using the ranking so it’s in another order?
