works but hurts w3c validation
By , for WP 4.0.1

The plugin I feel is great in terms of interaction and functions. Unfortunately it needs better coding.

When using this plugin it will cause W3C validation errors for your site.

Enough to go from passing to failing. Once the coding is corrected, I think this would be a great plugin!

Admin of plugin, please create a demo site, then add plugin to see W3C validators errors that will hurt websites when it comes to performance, Google and other search engines.


Nice but not always working with facebook
By , for WP 4.0

I used this plugin for a while and loved it. I'd give it 5 stars BUT...

But some weeks ago i noticed that facebook count were reduced to zero for all my posts. Author says here that Facebook change policies for its own API. Cool, but the workaround is available only for paying users.

Sorry, i understand the effort behind maintaining the plugin, but now i cannot say that the free version is working with me anymore.

I'll be looking somewhere else, or came back and give 5 stars if the workaround is made available to free version as well.

Uninstall left code behind
By ,

I tried to configure but it wasn't working right, and since I was only looking for the share feature. The plugin seemed clunky anyway so I uninstalled. But now I keep seeing the message "Your Simple Share Buttons need configuration before they will appear. View the tutorial video here" so the uninstall must have left something behind.

EDIT: and a few minutes later it stopped showing the message when editing plugins. Nevermind, issue solved

Simple but Powerful

Most of the time I install Jetpack just for the share buttons, now I can say goodbye to it after I try Simple Share Buttons Adder. Love it.

I'm not normally one to leave reviews but I've been struggling with Shareaholic for a few weeks, which has some nice features but slowed the site down and threw up an Unresponsive Script this morning that completely stopped my home page, which I'm told was a conflict with another plugin except I'm not using the other plugin. So today I looked for alternatives.

I gave Simple Share Buttons a go and it's just brilliant. Heaps of easy configuration options, heaps of button alternatives including custom buttons which I used with no problems, lighter on the website load time and more.

Absolutely brilliant. Thanks!

Just what I needed
By , for WP 4.0

I manage the layout design of four separate sites and I used this plugin on every single one of them. I was previously using Jetpack share buttons, but it seemed like every site I was on had the same share buttons. This prompted me to hunt down a plugin so I could customize my own buttons. With the help of picmonkey and this plugin - I now have the cutest little monster share buttons on my own site. I've also custom designed the other three sites I manage. The option available that aren't custom are decent too just wasn't what I was looking for at the moment. Love this plugin.

Quick Load

I'm very happy with this simple plugin. It loads before the header, it's exciting. Congratulations, David S. Neal :)
