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.

Waiting for static.huspo
By , for WP 4.1.1

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 3rd

uses a 3rd party website for sharing which is NOT clear in the description

Needs to be updated
By , for WP 4.0.1

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

Great plugin, and the ability to add custom URL's was just what I needed. Thanks!

Great Plugin... when it works /
By , for WP 3.9

This plugin works great on some of the pages of my sites.

However, there are Javascript errors appearing with the plugin, and I can't figure out where they are coming from.

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.

Everything I expect from a social network sharing plugin !
By , for WP 3.8

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) :
Javascript is required for sharing buttons to function properly and it must be enabled. Counters load javascript code from Twitter, Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Pinterest or from other social services that are selected. Interface for share buttons is loaded from our servers via javascript at run-time. This enables us to add minor enhancements and fix browser bugs the moment they are discovered without forcing you to upgrade the plugin all the time. Some button images are loaded from your local WordPress installation and some from our servers.
-> 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 :
#footer-area {
position: static; /* instead of relative */

Calling home
By , for WP 3.8

As others mentioned before, the plugin redirects through its own website.

please avoid calling home

As said by others, there's no reason for this plugin to call home

Best Share Buttons Plugin Out There
By , for WP 3.6

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.
