Sharing Buttons

Sharify adds responsive and beautiful sharing buttons to your WordPress posts and pages. The buttons are responsive which looks beautiful on every device and theme. The plugin includes sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and VKontake. Sharify also provides buttons for Reddit submit, Pocket and even Email.

Fast

Sharify is the fastest sharing plugin for WordPress. The plugin comes with caching which makes your site load faster and reduce server load. Sharify’s Caching will cache the sharing counts – which you can disable from the admin panel. You can also change the caching period from the Sharify Admin Panel.

Admin Panel

Sharify comes with an admin panel where you can customize any settings you want. You can display and hide any sharing button you want. You can also disable caching and change the cache period. I’ll be adding more options to the admin panel soon as well!

If you’ve any problems with the plugin or would like to feedback, please let me know at Twitter: @mehedih. Also, if you like and use the plugin, a review is really appreciated as well!

Thanks for using the plugin!

Reviews

Great find if you can live with its limitations

Thanks for this great plugin, Mehedi!

I had some trouble making the plugin show the buttons where I (or rather: my client) wanted them, but your tipps, gleaned from several support forums, were very helpful.

I have both settings, “Display Sharify buttons at the top of posts” and “Display Sharify buttons at the bottom of posts”, under the General Settings of Sharify set to off, told my client to use the shortcode…

[sharify]

…in those blog posts where he needs the social buttons (probably every one) and added the line…

<?php echo do_shortcode("[sharify]"); ?>

…after…

<div class="entry-inner">

…in my custom attachment.php and — voilĂ ! — I get Sharify buttons that let the users of my client’s website share attachment images and news entries.

It took a few minutes to set it up like this (plus an hour of Google-ing), but it works very well.

So, this may not be the one and only plugin for social media buttons, but it definitely serves me well, especially when one considers the low price (of zero dollars).

too limited

Light and quick to install. Unfortunately too limited and doesn’t allow to embed share buttons as shortcodes on static pages. Useless therefore.

Exceptional Plugin, Nicely Done!

This plugin is exceptional, and is really well designed. I love the flexibility and way it scales down in mobile.

Just a few minor CSS tweaks to make it perfect. But the plugin author provides the necessary CSS tags to do so.

Nicely done!
