Reviews

Just what I wanted – can we also have a "Share" option

It took me a while to find this plugin, but it does just what I wanted. Thanks!! I can show the Like button on all posts and pages, positioned as I prefer, with the option for an exclude list.

I’ve written a plugin like this for another PHP-based program, and based on what I did then, I’d really like the option for a “Share” button alongside the “Like” button. Given the plugin’s title I was expecting this. It’s only a small about of extra code to include data-send=”true” as option. I’ve hard coded this in myself at the point where I need it (and it works), but it would be a great option for others to have as well.
