Simple Social Bar

A simple, easy to use, easy to configure social share bar that follows you down the page for sharing your posts.

A simple, easy to use, easy to configure social bar that will allow a user to add social share links to their WordPress website. This plugin came from the idea implemented with the popular Share Bar plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sharebar/), but offers many improvements:

  • Completely new, easier to understand code base making it easier for possible community contribution and personal customization
  • No additional database tables, but instead utilizes a private custom post type for social link buttons
  • Better control over where the bar appears allowing for per-post type filtering
  • Less obtrusive implementation for better caching and minification plugin compatibility as well as control over when the plugin is loaded
  • Simpler administrative interface with drag and drop ordering capabilities

Works in IE7+, Firefox 2+, Chrome 2+, Safari 3+ and Opera 9+; vertical following does not work in IE6. 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.
