Installed this plugin in ALL my sites... WHAT A MISTAKE!
Apparently, it runs the Social Media links through their own HUPSO.com website. Which has been down over 24 hours... so their plugin doesn't work at ALL.
Not sure why they would do that, and not run it locally, but I'm done. There are other, better plugins that look and do the same thing, only THEY WORK.
My suggestion: back away, with your hands in the air.
Not sure I've ever been so pissed off by a plugin.
My site often stalls during loading because it is waiting for the external resources (images etc.) from static.huspo . If you are going to server resources from your server, make sure they LOAD and that they LOAD QUICKLY. Or provide an option to host resources locally.
I wonder how many visitors have abandoned the site because it gets stuck loading, waiting for external resources for this plugin.
uses a 3rd party website for sharing which is NOT clear in the description
It's had minor issues before that were fine to deal with, or have been fixed. Now it has not be updated in over 6 months and does not work right. The og:image data is not the right image.
Great plugin, and the ability to add custom URL's was just what I needed. Thanks!
This plugin works great on some of the pages of my sites.
The support for this plugin is non-existent. 0/9 threads have been resolved in the last month. I posted my error last week, and no one has responded.
I'm in the market for finding another one ASAP.
Rating 5/5 for the features, but unwillingness about connection to the server http://www.hupso.com/
- After testing the major plug-in social network share buttons,
I found this one which is exactly what I was looking.
- It is easy to implement and allows the choice of the French language for buttons.
- You do not need to open any account to use it.
- What you need to know, disadvantage (excerpt text from readme.txt) :
-> See about that, the good explained response of the author
- I finally abandoned all plugin social sharing buttons.
I use to Pages, "pinboard_social_bookmarks" function already implemented for items in wordpress theme pinboard.
- Note : I had changed the following CSS in the WordPress Theme so that the window button "Like" appears on the footer :
position: static; /* instead of relative */
As others mentioned before, the plugin redirects through its own website.
As said by others, there's no reason for this plugin to call home
Have been using this plugin for a long time and despite some of the negative comments about the call to home this is still the best share plugin out there.
Looks great on the website and works perfectly. The author is really supportive too and actively works to resolve all issues unlike many who just do not even bother to respond. Have to agree with mattrock1 "No 3rd-party subscriptions required, with lots of settings and configuration options". Setting up social sharing comes with many issues and having tried and tested many of the other WP social share plugins really believe you cannot get a better plugin than this.
