Support » Plugin: Simple Share Buttons Adder » Some issues regarding twitter and facebook sharing

  • Resolved ckubs


    Looked for something with a little more customization that all those sharing plugins with default buttons and found Shareaholic that’s kinda bloated, Flare that I don’t know if it has shortcode support and yours.
    This plugin is good, thoug I’ve had 2 issues with it:

    Solved first one with custom placement of sharing buttons by calling <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[ssba]’); ?>

    Second one is about twitter and facebook buttons. When I click to share on twitter the text to be shared looks like: When I click to share on facebook since the plugin doesn’t have any sort of popup option the needed content opens in a new page but shrinks my browser as it would be a pop-up and after I finish sharing and close that page i need to manually make it fullscreen again.

    Hey, thanks for giving the plugin a try, I hope you like it besides the couple of problems you’ve mentioned.

    Could you please provide a link to an example so I can investigate for you?

    As for the Facebook window-resizing issue, that must be browser-related, as I’ve not spotted that before myself. Which browser and version are you using please?




    I also agree that this is a great plugin.

    I too am having the issue with twitter not pulling the post title like ckubs mentions above – it is currently pulling ‘

    An example can be seen at

    The SSBA Twitter button is at the top left of the screen – it’s the large button that reads “Share This On Twitter”



    Any ideas on my issue above?

    You could try editing the main simple-share-buttons-adder.php file (please take care when doing so!).

    Replacing line 654

    $strPageTitle = $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"];


    $strPageTitle = get_the_title($post->ID);

    This has been untested so please make a backup of the file before making the change!
