Support » Plugin: Social Media Share Buttons & Social Sharing Icons » Adjust top/vertical margins on floating icons

  • Resolved jaco44


    The “Spacing between icons” under option #5 only seems to adjust the margins on the floating icons when they are aligned horizontally. I am semi-proficient in using Firebug in finding and adjusting margins but for the life of me, can not figure out how to reduce the margins/spacing between the floating icons when aligned vertically. Any ideas?

    Hi Jaco, that’s correct, the spacing is only referring to the horizontal spacing. Let us investigate what we can do about vertical spacing (may take a while, we’re currently working on a major update). Rgds, John

    Thanks, no rush on that issue. It would be a nice aesthetic & functional improvement to have the vertical floating icons not so spread out. As you’re working on the next update now & these aren’t really support issues that warrant a new thread, let me throw out my three big improvements to the plugin that will certainly garner a 5-star review plus a donation (at least from me):

    1) Hide/show arrows for the floating icons (with the option to use a cookie to remember each users preference).

    2)Different settings for both the color/style and which buttons to show for the floating buttons as well as those that are added to the bottom of each new post.

    3) Related to the improvement above, the ability to select from ANY of the AddThis buttons vs. just the handful current listed. e.g.: I would like to add the following buttons to the bottom of each post: Print, Email, Pocket, & Google Translate. All of those buttons are available under the (+)Share button and are more suited to my individual posts vs. my entire site.

    FYI- I have a few similar plugins installed on my local site but run yours on my live site. The ideas above were taken from those other plugins which I’d be glad to share with you to help assist in a little reverse engineering, should you decide to look into any of those features now or in the future.

    Thanks for the inspiration Jaco, quite a list. I’ll put them on our improvement to dos. Rgds, John
