Vk.com sharing for Jetpack

Description

Extends the Jetpack plugin and allows you to add a Vk.com sharing button to the list of sharing services available under Settings > Sharing in your dashboard.

Important: for this plugin to work, you must activate Jetpack first, and activate the Sharing module.

If you find issues, you can report them here, or submit a pull request on GitHub.

Note: Once you’ve added the button under Settings > Sharing, it won’t appear on that page. Save your changes, and look at one of your posts to see the button in action.

Installation

  1. Install the Jetpack plugin, connect the plugin to WordPress.com
  2. Activate the Sharing module
  3. Install the VK.com Sharing for Jetpack plugin via the WordPress.org plugin repository, or via your dashboard
  4. Activate the plugin
  5. Go to Settings > Sharing, and drag the Vk.com button to the sharing area.
  6. Enjoy! 🙂

FAQ

Can I use VK’s Like button instead of the Share button?

The Like button requires an app ID and a Vk.com account. To use the Like button you would have to create your own app on Vk.com. I wanted this plugin to be simple to use, so I chose the Share button instead.

Why is this not in Jetpack yet?

If this Jetpack addon becomes popular, I will propose that we add Vk.com in Jetpack’s Sharing module.

Reviews

Works perfect

Thanks a lot! For vk.com sharing I first made my own button, but it didn’t share specific page, only the main page of site.

Большое спасибо! С возложенной на него функцией справляется на 100%.
Для vk.com я сначала делал кнопку самостоятельно, но она не делилась к конкретной записью, а только с сайтом. Да и надпись выходила мелкой, ввиду ограничения размера иконки в jetpack sharing в 16px.
