GetSocial

GetSocial adds an intelligent, lightweight, quick to setup floating social media sharing box on your blog posts.

How to add additional social media sharing buttons to the GetSocial box?

Simply add the HTML code for the additional buttons under the 'Additional buttons' options in the settings page. Enclose each button within <div class="sharebutton"> and </div> tags. For example:

<div class="sharebutton">
<!-- Code for additional button 1 -->
</div>
<div class="sharebutton">
<!-- Code for additional button 2 -->
</div>

Nothing happens when I hover over partially hidden GetSocial box. What should I do?

Set the Browser Width option in the GetSocial settings page to suit the maximum width of your theme. For example, if your theme's width is 1000px, you may set the browser width to 1140px (1000 + 140) or slighly higher. Try out different values of browser width and set the one that gives desired behaviour.

I have activated the GetSocial plugin but the GetSocial box does not show up. What could be wrong?

Make sure that you have selected the desired Display options on the GetSocial Settings page and saved the changes. If the GetSocial box still does not appear, it could be because your theme does not use the standard WordPress function wp_footer(). You can try one of the following options:

Add following code to your theme's template (possibly in footer.php) just before the </body> tag:

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

OR Add following code to footer.php just before the </body> tag:

<?php
if (function_exists('add_getsocial_scripts')) {
add_getsocial_scripts();
if (function_exists('add_getsocial_box')) {
add_getsocial_box();
}
}
?>

How do I add the email and more buttons from Addthis.com?

Please refer to How to Customize GetSocial with CSS3 Buttons.
