Social Share bar (Digg Digg Alternative)

Description

Get super optimized sharing tools with the Share plugin

The AA Digg Digg Alternative is a floating toolbar for your WordPress website that is lightweight and clean. The reason for this plugin is Digg Digg was causing many speed issues with our website “Android Advice & Tutorials” so we decided to create our own. After doing so we received requests by others for our toolbar. The result is a plugin available to all.

We ran speed tests using the Digg Digg social plugin and our own and every website it was tested on came up with better results using our Digg Digg alternative than the Digg Digg bar itself.

Benefits of Our Toolbar over Digg Digg:

* Faster load time
* Cleaner code
* Substantially less code
* Easy to customize
* Less settings to run through to get it working

You can now social share with:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. Pinterest
  4. G+
  5. LinkedIn
  6. Reddit

If you have questions about the toolbar, bug reports, or feature requests (like other sharing services) we will hear you out and make changes hopefully quickly. We will be adding other networks although wanted to release this for testing first.

FAQ

My Toolbar is not Floating where I want it to?

If you go to the settings for the toolbar “settings -> dig digg alternative” you will see location settings. You need to change those numbers to move the toolbar around. (i.e. changing the first number from 500 to 550 will move it further left by 50 pixels, changing the second number from 50 to 60 will move it down 10 pixels)

If you have any questions please visit the Digg Digg Alternative Plugin Page and leave them in the comments.

Reviews

Improper HTML structure!

This plugin injects <div> and <span> tags into the <head> with
add_action(‘wp_head’, ‘moki_add_social_content’), and breaks W3C HTML validity, thereby lowering your search engine rankings.
