Wow. How wonderful.

Flawless in every respect.
(Unlike many of the other social buttons that carry reporting and spyware overhead)
Thanks for a great plugin!

Thats what I was looking for!

Thanks for the great plugin. I was looking for something simple, not using up resources... This plugin does what it promises and looks great! :-)

Wonderful, easy to use, great icons
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have been searching for almost two months before coming across this plugin. I have no idea how I missed it repeatedly and I'm really glad I located it.

I installed it and within about 10 minutes had it customized and running on my page. I'm using the default WP 2015 theme and it works just a treat. I don't have the readership to warrant the plus version yet but by the end of the year I will be upgrading my version to Plus, and installing Plus versions on my other web site and my wife's web site. For the ~$30 a year, it's soon worth it.

The code is clean and simple, there's not a lot of overhead, and it loads fast. I am very happy with this.

Facebook button bug
By , for WP 4.1

It seems our devs used this plugin to make our blog posts more shareable but on my side when i click Facebook button, in order to share the post on Facebook, i get a blank white page. Is this a bug? Does this work on your side? How can i solve this? It's kinds frustrating.

Addthis pissed me off with their shenanigans...

so i found this as replacement based on the high ratings... and i was not disappointed.

Though it would be nice to have more button options tailored to the vast chinese market (e.g. tencent, sina weibo)... i'm a bit rusty and busy to create them myself.

The best sharing plugin of them all.
By , for WP 4.1

Having trialled about a dozen other sharing plugins, SimpleShare reigns supreme for many reasons.

  1. Responsive.
  2. Easy install and works out-of-the-box once activated.
  3. Highly configurable and yet very easy to understand.
  4. Light-weight in performance this saving on page load time.
  5. Variety of icons sets are available, each set being very pretty (except for Arbenta). Allows custom sets.
  6. SimpleShare branding can be white-labelled (removed) and is off by default.
  7. One of the very rare plugins that offer a premium version without limiting any functionality that you need. The premium options are actually compelling without being essential and priced very low ($9.99).

Improvements I'd like to see:

The link to the settings page should be more obviously titled as SimpleShare to distinguish it from other share plugins that you might having installed when trialling.

It would also be useful to a screen-shot of each of the icon sets without having to activate them and previewing them in the live site. Adding this screen-shot to the plugin screen-shot tab would be sufficient.

Easy install and customisation
By ,

I like the ease of customising the plugin. And the fact that it works straight out the box and does not appear to conflict with any other plugins.

Well designed and I can choose whether or not to show the counter.

Works As Advertised
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin works as advertised. I went in, it had plenty of options for me to choose from to get the thing looking like I wanted, and within five minutes I had the thing configured to do what the client was asking for. Nice work, people.
