So, just installed this plugin today because all the others I found were far too full of fluff – I just wanted to be able to put in some sharing buttons without coding it myself – I didn’t want any of those like buttons that counted the likes or anything, I just wanted some sharing buttons.
- Installation was instant.
- Settings were long winded, but pretty quick because most of them were the same settings just for different social networks so you quickly realised what you could skip over and what needed setting.
- Decided to exclude the icons from a couple of pages – easy & quick so long as you read the instructions when you were setting up
So yes, dead easy, pretty quick, works perfectly.
However, having completed the website, I ran the P3 plugin on the site 3 times (as I always do) – and found that this social sharing plugin was the slowest 1 of 3 times, and marginly second slowest 2 of 3 times.
What’s wrong with that you say? Well, the other plugin that was around the same mark as it was the All In One Events Calendar – a HUGE plugin (notorious for being slow, but in this case performing pretty well) – I just can’t see any reason a lightweight social sharing plugin should be as slow as an events calendar.
It is not slow enough to be a problem on it’s own for me and fortunately this site has only 4 plugins in total – but, this is an area I would recommend looking at Synved, after all, you are marketing it as a lightweight plugin.
At some point I may pit it up against some of the bigger social media plugins like shareaholic.
