Easy sharing and connecting on social networks. Display on posts or use widgets or shortcode. Also Twitter name/hashtag to link converter.
Well what to say? Suddenly I had some phone call: what is this new link?
NIce! If you wont money say but this is a really bad and annoying way to steal time to people that is working.
Suddenly an unremovable LinksAlpha button is added - not very surprising as the plugin is adopted by LinksAlpha. But my customers cannot live with this button due to privacy regulations (cookielaw and such). So, had to remove the toolbar (or stay with the previous version).
Waiting for someone else to adopt the old version and to maintain that one.
I downloaded the Social Sharing Toolkit plugin to my WordPress site so I can have social sharing buttons within my posts. After activating, my website crashed. The screen went blank. I tried re-loading WordPress and entering the site URL – and nothing came up. I contacted my hosting company thinking the problem was on their end; but they told me that the problem was with the plugin I installed. Somehow it jackknifed my site. They quickly disabled all the plugins and got me up and running within minutes.
The Social Sharing Toolkit plugin has four stars. I thought it would be good to use. Maybe it’s because I have a newer version of WordPress. Since things didn’t jive, I’m warning all to beware against this plugin. I’m not risking another download.
MY HAPPY SEO
Like many others, I was disappointed to see LINKALPHA turned on and not allowing the user to disable it. Very poor from the developer imo.
The older versions work just as well so best sticking to the older versions if you can't find an alternative that you like.
Solid plugin until the LinksAlpha update.
Same most other users, though I will point out one additional item:
Each instance of the social sharing tool now links to LinksAlpha, passing SEO value to LinksAlpha. That's some shady SEO right there.
Happily now using WP Socializer and noticed more shares with the floating sidebar style sharing. This actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise!
Last update ruined the plugin. The share button of the new company that can NOT be disabled renders it unusable for the purposes of an average WP user.. It was a good plugin but no more. Uninstalled.
Used it for a long time, but now suddenly, there is an advertising link right in the social bar...
Old version works fine but do not upgrade to 2.1.2. Mandatory LinksAlpha button has made plugin unusable.
Terrible plugin now. Developer has gone and added a Linksalpha button that cannot be removed. Also reports of increased memory usage.
Avoid, not just a way for new developer to spruik own service.
Linkalpha have essentially ruined this plugin by unethically stealing your sharing data without asking for permission, the plugins page load time has now increased and they have forced you to include their crappy looking linkalpha sharing button.
If you wanted to profit from the plugin why not include a pro version - I certainly would have upgraded rather than making the changes you have done.
Why ruin such a great plugin? I have now had to uninstall and waste my time looking for other plugins.
