WPSocialite

Long page loads aren't fun for anyone. Use WPSocialite to take control of heavy social sharing links and load them how you want!

Not responsive and not greatly styled.
By , for WP 4.1

Not responsive, at least not my current theme.

Evenly spaced buttons rather than floating left which produces an undesirably styled gaps between buttons on wide, 100% width or no-sidebar layouts.

Options page isn't obvious to find and the presentation of the options isn't intuitive and therefore can difficult to interpret.

e.g. Apply to Excerpt, Apply to Single only, Post Types

I couldn't tell what's overriding what.

It works but it's nowhere near as configurable as SimpleShare, another light-weight plugin, that I have instead opted for.

Very useful

This is the only plugin which provided this functionality without slowing down my blog.

Simple but awesome social share plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have strict requirements regarding social share plugins so I compared many different Javascript solutions for social sharing. Then I found a Javascript plugin called Socialite and have been satisfied with it so far.

I just found out that this WP plugin (WPSocialite) is based on the JS plugin that I've been using.

Although simple, this plugin satisfies most of my requirements, so for now I am going to steer clear from other WP plugins which in my view are too complicated and unreliable.

The only feature that I long for in this plugin is the facebook-share button (which by the way is already available in the JS version), so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be available soon in the WP version.

Keep up the good work, guys. Thanks for the awesome plugin!

Works great

Social buttons were a complete PITA and taking ages to load.

This plugin lets the page load, then loads social code afterwards. fantastic.

I would like to have the @via parameter added to tweets though.

really happy you made a plug-in from it, I was just about to follow tutorial but plug-in is so much easier.

Good stuff!

minifies (...) the page loading times and has an actively supporting plugin author. 5 stars, Thanks a lot!

Great plugin, but more flexability needed
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love the concept and it works really well. Occasionally a few glitches - one button may not load, but I think this is usually a browser issue.

I would like uses to be able add their Twitter username, so tweets go via @USERNAME. I have had to edit the plugin to add in this capability myself.

Also the ability to make style modifications via settings, as opposed to having to edit the plugins CSS code would be good.

We are currently using the plugin on Technology Bloggers and it works a treat!

Overall a great plugin :-)

Works Perfect

Significantly improves page load performance and looks great.

Would like to set the ability to separately specify the position of the buttons on posts and on pages, but that can be overcome by manually placing it.
