Flare

Flare is a simple yet eye-catching social sharing bar that gets you followed and lets your content get shared via posts, pages, and media types.

The Flare plugin isn’t in active development because we’ve created a hosted app version of Flare that works with virtually any website or CMS, including WordPress.

Flare Lite is here, and it's awesome - go sign up for a free Filament account to use it.

For more info on the differences, check out this Forum post.

 

About the Flare WordPress Plugin

Up your website's social score with a little social Flare! Easily configure and share your blog posts across some of the most popular networks.

Flare allows you to:

  • Add a Follow Me widget - place widgets on your site with links to your social networks to get more followers.
  • Configure multiple share icons for some of the most popular sharing services like Twitter, Facebook, Stumble Upon, Reddit, Google+ and Pinterest! More coming soon!
  • Easily order your icons, customize their icons' appearance
  • Control which post types your Flare appears on
  • Display your Flare at the top, bottom, left or right sides of your post content
  • Flare displayed on the left and right of your post follow your visitors down the page as they scroll and conveniently hide when not needed

Flare buttons work in IE7+ as well as current versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera; vertical following does not work in IE6. Admin interface requires a modern browser (e.g. anything not IE 6-8 :). Utilizes jQuery for JavaScript processing, although it is setup to work properly with other libraries, your experience may vary. Requires PHP 5.2+.

This plugin is free to use and is not actively supported by the author, but will be monitored for serious bugs that may need correcting.
