Are share buttons free?

Yes. Thay are free and will always be free. And you do not need to open any account to use them.

Are share buttons using Javascript?

Yes. Javascript is required for sharing buttons to function properly and it must be enabled. Counters load javascript code from Twitter, Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Pinterest or from other social services that are selected. Interface for share buttons is loaded from our servers via javascript at run-time. This enables us to add minor enhancements and fix browser bugs the moment they are discovered without forcing you to upgrade the plugin all the time. Some button images are loaded from your local WordPress installation and some from our servers. Clicks on share icons can be redirected to target social network throught our servers. One of the benefits of such setup is that share buttons keep working properly, even when there are API changes at social networking sites. This can be a major advantage for websites that do not plan to update plugins regularly.

How can I hide/show share buttons for specific posts?

You can hide share buttons for specific post using shortcode [hupso_hide]. Add [hupso_hide] anywhere in your post's text and buttons will be hidden.

Email button does not seem to work on some devices. Nothing happens when I click on it. What can I do?

Clicking on e-mail button invokes default e-mail application on the device. If default e-mail application is not set up, it will not do anything. On Firefox and Chrome you can use web based e-mail (such as gmail.com or outlook.com) as your default e-mail application if you like, so clicking on the email icons will open your web based e-mail account.
