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

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.

Downgrading My Rating
By , for WP 4.1

I really like the functionality of this plugin. Unfortunately it is not validating properly and it inserts over a hundred lines of css right into the live header. This causes SEO concerns for me, and I can no longer use it. I paid for the plus version too. If the developers cleaned up the code and eliminated all that extra "live" css I would go back to using it and recommending it. For now, I have to disable and move on. It's a shame; I really wanted to use this one.

Simple & does what it should
By , for WP 4.1

Does what it should with enough options to personalize. From what I can tell it doesn't drop all kinds of cookies like Shareaholic does. Thumbs up!

Easy to install...Easy to set up...Easy to use!

I just found this plugin while watching a tutorial on YouTube and the instructor mentioned this one. I downloaded it and have spent less than 10 minutes setting it up on my website and it looks great!

Good plugin
By , for WP 4.1

Just downloaded. Really nice for a free plugin. Nice style choices in terms of the buttons, and nice variety of buttons too aside from the big 3-4 you expect. You have options like Tumblr, Buffer, etc.

5/5 plugin!
