[Resolved] Manually inserting share buttons

  • Looking at the “Sharing” settings, we can apparently insert it anywhere we want, as opposed to manually inserting it below the content:

    Advanced. If this option is checked, you must include these files in your theme manually for the sharing links to work.

    However, I can’t find the actual code anywhere.

    What is the code to insert the sharing buttons?

    This option allows you to insert your own CSS and JS files for each sharing button, but won’t change their placement on your posts/pages.

    If you want to add sharing buttons somewhere else in your template files, you can insert the following code somewhere in the Loop:

    <?php echo sharing_display(); ?>

    Another solution would be to use a shortcode to insert the buttons manually, post by post. You can use this plugin to do so:

    If you want to remove the existing buttons from the bottom of your posts, you can add the following function in a new plugin, or in your theme’s functions.php file:

    function jptweak_remove_share() {
    	remove_filter( 'the_content', 'sharing_display',19 );
    	remove_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'sharing_display',19 );
    add_action( 'loop_end', 'jptweak_remove_share' );

    the echo stuff works perfectly…but now i ve got two identical share areas.

    I pasted the remove recipe in function.php but it doesn’t work..

    If the code doesn’t work when adding it to your theme, could you remove it, and try installing this small plugin instead?

    hey jeremy, thank you for your work with the small plugin; i tested it but nothing changed…i work with win 7, i m making a child (or better, a young frankenstein) theme of 2012, i ve got no other plugin installed than your nearly perfect jetpack.

    I tried others plugin with share stuff, but i would prefer your. If you could solve this problem, it would be really perfect.

    normally i put <?php echo sharing_display(); ?> in my content.php .
    it works well because it is exactly where i want (at the bottom of the article, under the post date and leave a comment.
    the problem is that the default ketpack plugin is above the date+leave a comment.

    i could change it with dreamweaver but then i m afraid to have problem with some position elements..

    How About New Features LIKE BOXES? How To Remove and add it manually?

    The function shown above worked until today – when I updated my jetpack plugin. I’d much rather place the buttons manually. Is there a new tweak that will make the function work again?

    Would love to be able to do this as well. It’s the only reason I dont use the share buttons, because I want to have control over their placement.

    See my problem:


    If you try to share a window will open and only one loop to the same page.
