[resolved] Jetpack Sharing - change service label text (5 posts)

    Is there a way to change the text for a sharing site's link, like changing "Facebook" to "Share this on Facebook"?

    If the only way to do this is to add the site as a new service, is the "Sharing URL" that each of the default services uses stored somewhere for me to copy, so that I can make the new buttons work just like the defaults do?

    Thanks!

    I am afraid you cannot change the button's label. You can indeed create a new custom sharing service to work around the issue.

    Try creating a new service with these parameters:

    • Service Name: Share on Facebook
    • Sharing URL: https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=%post_full_url%=%post_title%
    • Icon URL: _YOUR_SITE_URL_/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/sharedaddy/images/facebook.png

    Great, thank you! I'll also need to make custom services for other sites: would the sharing URL for Twitter/Pinterest/etc. work like the Facebook example, or is there somewhere else I can find a list of how to format the URLs so that they work just like they do by default?
