Widget placement customizing (floating and static), Continual updated design collection.
The basic functionality works well for me but as reported in Support, I'm unable to edit the icon sequence, which icons display on the bar or the style of buttons. That functionality comes up blank. So theres some issues with the admin page.
The buttons themselves do work nicely though and I'm happy to have the popup with more user choices.
I've been surprised how buggy many of these Share plugins have been. This is about the 6th I've tried. The prior one had the option to not display the buttons unless a share link was clicked. But it has not been maintained. Another that is updated and is popular has been really buggy.
Hopefully a fix update is coming. Then this would be worth 5 stars.
Was looking both for floating and embedded to posts and pages and found this one. After one evening testing decided to uninstall it.
Plugin is very nice, has good customization capabilities, even "tricks" like buttons trembling, and of course includes floating panel that is very good.
But I found some things after which decided not to use it:
- When sharing to Facebook, plugin adds "shared by Sharexy.com plugin" -- tried to find it in sources and could not. Author answered in support that this will be an option in next versions, but...
- ... plugin is not updated for 4 months and no information when it will be.
- "Sharexy" button is added to others and can't be switched off.
- The words is that there is a popup window when your mouse is on this "sharexy" button, which opens automatically but doesn't close itself without clicking. There was the whole thread about it: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/remove-the-sharesexy-icon?replies=7 but now it is just closed without any answer.
People in the thread and I after my codesearch suppose that this plugin addresses some outer sources, so this was warning to me and I moved to other one.
I've finally managed to find a social sharing plugin which looks and works exactly how I want it to. I've tried the majority of the 'big name' social sharing tools, none of them were what I was looking for. If this plugin were to include analytics, a twitter url shortener, as well as the ability to add a twitter account to the end of tweets for attribution and to encourage more follows, I would be giving it 5 out of 5. Hopefully these extras will be added in future updates.
Sharexy is fast and flexible. Recent updates have fixed nearly all of the issues I had with older versions of the plugin. I've turned off the ad and content generators. It's still a slick social sharing plugin.
