FAQ

I will not be adding a Instragram share button to the plugin. Instagram does not actually support image sharing the same as facebook, pinterest etc. do.

The only way to post a picture to Instagram is by uploading it yourself as Instagram specifically don’t want users posting/sharing other peoples photos on its platform.

Facebook is a picky social media for sharing and looks for open graph meta tags in your sites code. This plugin includes an option to automatically add these tags, so if you are having trouble with facebook share, turn this on.

However if you have another SEO plugin installed, I recommend leaving them off, else you may have duplicate meta tags.
You can trouble shoot facebook share using their debug tool: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

Reviews

Nice Plugin

Simple to use and blends in nicely with woo commerce and very easy to use – recommended.

Breaks product pages if you have any html in product descriptions

If your product descriptions have any html in them, such as a hyperlink, or even a <p> tag, then the plugin includes that info as part of the meta tags. Since meta tags shouldn’t have html tags nested in them, it messes up the product page, and displays part of the product description 3 times at the very top of the page.

Freezing problem

Hi! There is a problem with this plugin, I just upgraded to wordpress 4.5.3 and I am getting my website freezing when loading page, when I uninstalled it the site seems to work well. Can admin sort this problem please! the plugin is really nice and works perfectly.

Not very convenient

It works as advertised, but is not convenient to use. Button size and shape cannot be customized except by uploading your own images, button labels (“Share” etc.) cannot be edited. Also, there is no easy way to have the buttons added automatically to pages other than product pages, you have to modify your theme code to do that.

Super!

Excellent plugin, easy to use and customize. Love it!
