Feature Suggestions for O3 Social Share
Great job on the plugin. I’m using it live on my site here. There are 2 features that I’d like to request.
1. Pinterest sharing. Seems pretty popular at the moment, especially among females and photographers.
2. Bit.ly support for Twitter. You’ve got to admit it, sometimes when sharing a lengthy link on Twitter it becomes imperative to use a 3rd party shrinking service. You might check the code in the WP to Twitter plugin for some ideas on coding it.
Good suggestions. The Twitter button actually will use t.co to shorten the URL. However, it’s not evident to the user that that’s actually what will happen. Your character count will only be used in the t.co format, not the full URL. This is a Twitter thing and I think it’s poised for an update. When Twitter does do this, it will automatically be reflected on the plugin.
On Pinterest: I’ve thought about this. However, sharing with Pinterest requires an image (obviously). For pages that don’t have images, I don’t think the Pinterest button should appear. If that seems logical to you, I may patch this in to the next update.
Ah, awesome. I was wondering about that myself actually cause I had known about t.co but was surprised that Twitter was implementing it. Sounds like it is though.
Having a logic-driven Pinterest button seems logical to me… even if it mean additional coding for you. But hey, it might set your plugin apart from others. 🙂
Please make it easy to override CSS. I had to delete all of it to override with custom css OR offer custom css option within plugin…
Otherwise great plugin, simple and it works!
