    I had another question for you.

    I just turned on the mobile share bar, and really like it.

    But with that enabled, it brings up a question. Is there a way to turn off/disable the follow bar and/or share buttons whenever my site is viewed on a mobile devices? I see the option to disable the sharebar on desktops, but don’t see a comparable setting for the others (i.e. share buttons, floating sharebar).

    Thank you, Aakash!

    I’m running through the changes now.

    Question for you – what is the purpose of the “Mobile Sharebar” tab in the admin?

    I thought it was to configure the sharebar for mobile devices? And the design seems very well suited for a mobile device. But considering the new option is called “Hide in mobile device”, I presume that’s not the case.

    With that in mind, I tested that option out, and indeed, it does work! When checked, it hides the bar on my mobile phone. However, being a “Mobile Sharebar”, I think I was expecting the opposite – like “Hide on desktop”. In other words, default to show on mobile and have option to hide on desktop (and/or tablet – not sure about that one???)

    On another note. . .

    I tested the same feature on the floating sharebar, and it does hide it on mobile. But I discovered that if you resize the browser on the desktop to a mobile size (I do this when testing the site for responsiveness), it disappears as expected, but when I resize larger, the icon does not come back. I have to refresh the page to get the icons to reappear.

    On that same tab, I noticed a really super cool feature – called “Minimize when screen width is less than”. But when I tried it out, it didn’t seem to be working.

    I’ll keep testing.

    Allen,

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    1. ‘Hide on desktop’ I’m planning to add in the next version by today or tomorrow.
    2. There are two different features.

    a) Hide on mobile – When selected, a mobile user won’t see the share buttons ( even when page is resized because this decision is made even before the page is loaded ( based on user-agent )

    b) Minimize when screen size is less – This one is dynamic and it shows/hides based on the live screen size. Set it to ex: 900px and resize the window. The sharebar will minimize. Expand and it shows up again.

    Thanks,
    Aakash
