    The Share Post plugin is a new plugin that generates unique social bookmarking buttons. Share Post contains many new concepts, setting itself apart from all other social bookmarking button plugins. The buttons generated by Share Post does NOT require Javascript, does NOT break HTML validation, and is 100% cross-browser compatible. In addition, every button has a counter that displays the number of clicks that each button has.

    Does not require Javascript:
    Many users who visit your blog may not have Javascript or choose to disable it. If you use other social bookmarking plugins, those users will not see your buttons. Or even worse, they may see a random blurb of text because the buttons did not render properly. However, Share Post has a workaround that enables the buttons to be displayed perfectly with or without Javascript.

    Does not break HTML validation:
    Most social bookmarking buttons will break HTML validation, meaning that it may not display correctly on some browsers. The buttons may look distorted or malfunction on older browsers. Some of the most popular buttons (Tweet, Like, Reddit, etc) will break HTML validation. A unique solution is implemented in Share Post to make these buttons valid HTML. No other plugins can do this.

    Cross-browser compatible:
    Different browsers display HTML differently. Some social bookmarking buttons may look fine in your browser, but look distorted in someone else's browser. Share Post was coded to work perfectly in all major browsers; many similar plugins don't even work in Internet Explorer.
    How does Share Post do this? Share Post detects the browser that the user is using and displays different content based on the browser. This way, Share Post can display browser-specific codes to work in all browsers.

    Final tip
    Share Post can display many different social bookmarking buttons but did you know that Share Post can be used to display one specific button as well. For example, there are many plugins that display the Tweet button. However, the Tweet button may not work without Javascript, may break HTML validation, or may not work in all browsers.

    In conclusion, give Share Post a try and see the difference :)

    I downloaded this plugin and it works perfectly! I tried about 4 or 5 other plugins, but none of them were as good as this plugin. Keep up the great work, Linksku!

    I'm using the share-post plugin (recent download this week) and it works perfectly in Mozilla.
    In IE(8), I see no icons just the HTML (at the top of the page vs the bottom where it shows up in Firefox)
    This happens regardless of the WP template I use (I'm building several websites)
    Is it IE or me?

    It could be an issue with the plugin...

    Maybe...
    If so and there isn't a work around, might have to investigate a different plugin...
    This plugin advertises it's ability to work in any browser

    Try contacting the plugin's developer about this.

    Can you provide an URL or a screenshot?
    I haven't tested the plugin with 3.1.2 yet, it could be the problem if you are using 3.1.2
