For example:

wp-content/plugins/simple-share-buttons-adder/inc/ssba_buttons.php:267

I can see:

plugins_url() . '/simple-share-buttons-adder/

WFT!? I use plugin to hidden plugins where urls should be for example:
http://localhost/wordpress/extensions/6fa62fe88fbb3b789674ed3d584b2b62/

but for this plugin I have url:
http://localhost/wordpress/extensions/simple-share-buttons-adder/

Great Simple Share Button Plugin That Works Great!
By , for WP 4.4.1

Love this share plugin. It's highly configurable including share button and text size and has a toggle to add nofollow to it's links. Plus it's short code [ssba] is handy to add share to specific pages or posts.

Had been using Add This Share previously but they have bots scraping pages at a high rate. Somewhat concerned where my data is going and what it is being used for. So long add this.

Does not work with Chrome

This plugin works fine with Firefox, but on Chrome, any text or title you add to the buttons shows up fine, but the buttons themselves do not

Lovely Buttons!

Thank you Simple Share for this lovely button widget. Great job!

A great little plugin
By , for WP 4.4

Simple, light and with plenty of options. I would have given it five stars if the 'font-family' options were not so limited; 'inherit from website' option looks up body font style, I wanted to use style I had set for headings, in my case Time New Roman.

Keep up the good work :)

My site is down because of this plugin
By ,

I just registered right now to review this plugin. Bought the Plus version, site speed goes from 50 to 18. Aaaaand, worst of all, my site now is down.

Asked for a refund, let's see what happens.

Stay away from this one.

Nice design, works well in standard format posts
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is a very easy plugin to set up, and looks very elegant on the page. Has good customisations for padding, placement top or bottom of posts/pages, font (including inheriting from your site), several styles of buttons.
I've found this plugin works best with Standard image format posts. The Video and Quote formats, even with a Featured Image thumbnail, were throwing up all kinds of random images from my blog posts when shared on G+ and LinkedIn (I don't know if that happens with the premium 'Plus' version). On my (Hueman) theme, the image being grabbed on sharing to G+ and LinkedIn is whatever is at the top of the post, rather then the 'Featured Image' thumbnail (and a random image from other posts if no actual image is at the top of the post, as when a video, etc, despite there being a set Featured Image).
But I have still given this 5 stars, as I like the look of these buttons and ease of setup, and this is a free version.
