The problem

Currently, the only way for people to promote their favorite things online is through spamming their networks with messages
hoping to drive friends, family and followers to do something. We’ve all received these kinds of messages promoting causes,
good deals, events and more. But what if there was a better way to build awareness and drive people to action?

The solution

A picture is worth 1,000 words. The social web is a big conversation, and through Shortbord, people are able to promote anything
they want without changing the conversation. This is not annoying and most importantly, its not spam!

The product

Shortbord’s brand icons can go anywhere you post content, thus enabling you to build awareness for your cause within your
networks as well as to the web at large. Its simple, effective and most importantly, fun. By installing the Shortbord plugin you’re extending the reach of the Shortbord network and enabling your users to promote their favorite brands and causes just by participating in your community.


Upload the Shortbord plugin to your blog Configure the plugin by going to Settings > Shortbord Done!

If you wish, you can configure a widget for your site that pulls in your Shortbord endorsements. Just go to Appearance > Widgets and configure the Shortbord widget in whatever sidebar you wish.


  1. Why is automatic endorsement insertion not working for my post titles?

There are a few reasons that automatic insertion of endorsements for post titles may not be working. First, it only activates on single post pages. That is, a page that is designed to display a single post or page. Second, it will only work with the first call to the_title() inside of the loop. That means that if you have some markup where you use the_title() inside of an attribute, the endorsement won’t display appropriately.
