    Hi David,

    Great plugin and easy to use. Just want to find out if it's possible to place the icons in a specific location in a template apart from Above / Below?

    Hi barrycrous,

    Thanks for your post.

    At the moment this isn't possible, it's been kept pretty simple to keep the number of options down and stay true to its name!

    This is also only my second plugin so I'll need to research into that, I have a feeling with the obscene number of themes out there that it could cause some problems for people so I'll have to do some pretty thorough testing.

    If your theme offers the ability to add HTML to a particular place on your pages I'd happily help put together a plain hard-coded option for you.

    Hi David,

    First thanks for a great app! If the offer is still on the table, would you be able to offer the hard-coded option you were talking about earlier?

    Note that you will need to replace the urls that I have set to be shared and add the image src for those images that you wish to use.

    If you need any help doing this just let me know!

    Hi both,

    Version 1.8 now includes the option of using shortcode to add your buttons wherever you like!

    I've not tested this with many themes but it should be fine to have a try!

    Simply write [ssba] wherever you would like to use it!

    Any questions/problems just let me know.
