Crafty Social Buttons

Adds social sharing and link buttons, including Ravelry, Etsy, Craftsy and Pinterest.

Can I add a different set of icons?

Yes! There are instructions in the help section of the Plugin (pull down the help menu in the top right of the WordPress admin, or at the plugin webpage (http://sarahhenderson.github.io/Crafty-Social-Buttons/#adding-icons).

Can I add a different social/craft network ?

I'm happy to take requests for new services to add.

Can I have more control over where to put the icons?

Yes! The buttons can also be included in any post or page by using one of these shortcodes:

  • [csblink] for the Link buttons
  • [csbshare] for the Share buttons
  • [csbnone] will hide the Share buttons on a post/page where they would otherwise normally appear

If your theme doesn't have a widget area where you want the buttons to be placed, you can include them by editing your theme template. Just include one of these links in your template to generate the buttons:

  • <?php do_action('crafty-social-link-buttons'); ?>
  • <?php do_action('crafty-social-share-buttons'); ?> (inside loop)
  • <?php do_action('crafty-social-share-page-buttons'); ?> (outside loop)

Since the Share buttons are page/post specific, the shortcode is usually best, and since the Link buttons are site/site owner specific, the widget or action hook will normally be a better choice.
