I've just installed Simple Love onto a client site. It looks good, except it does match the Simple Share so closely that people might not notice it. I plan to try it on other sites. I use Genesis frame exclusively.

Very useful as an additional function of "Genesis Simple Share", but you can turn off that horrible popup? is very old style, like Windows 95... Please ... disabled... PLEASE 🙂
