  1. Awesome work!!

    Si there a way to get these social sharing buttons fixed to the bottom of the browser on mobile?

    • Hi Yhonatan, Thank You for the comment.
      Right now there isn’t any fixed social sharing buttons for Mobile Version.

      • Hi, my friend.
        I just found an easy way to have your buttons fixed to the bottom of the phone while scrolling.

        Two steps:

        1) Hook position: Footer.
        2) Add this CSS code:

        @media (max-width: 767px) {
        .wplogout-social-wrapper {
        position: fixed !important;
        bottom: 0;
        left: 0;
        right: 0;
        text-align: center;
        }
        }

    • Hi AK, Thank you for visiting my site. You can use this code in your Class or ID.

      box-shadow: rgba(23,43,99,.14) 0 7px 28px;
      

      Thank You.

        • You can place the above code in your sidebar’s text ID or Class. For Example: If you have class .abc-xyz then add the code like this

          .abc-xyz {
          box-shadow: rgba(23,43,99,.14) 0 7px 28px;
          }
          

          Thank You

  3. Hi again, for some reason, sharing from facebook not include de featured image or any image?
    What would be teh cause?
    And also, is there a way (from mobile) to open the facebook app instead teh web version?

    Reply
    • Hi Gabriel,

      1. Sharing the link to Facebook is perfectly working at my end with a featured image. I have tried again.

        • Go to Facebook Share Debugger Tool, add your URL, and check your URL. If there is any problem fix it.
      2. I think there isn’t a way since Facebook only provides a sharing URL that supports the web.

  4. Looks really good, thank you. How can I align-center the icons so it sits in the middle of the screen instead of the left?

    Nevertheless, I’m unable to identify your twitter handle to replace it with mine. Could you highlight the handle?

  6. Hi Suraj,

    This is excellent. I used GP socials icons, but that had an issues opening pages to edit. So this is an excellent and nice solution. I managed to change to bar to my own colors so that made me happy.

    I want to add a email-social-share but I am afraid I need some help on the code of the Elements to fix this (css, svg is done).

    Thanks, Peter

    • Hi Caitriona, Did you delete the CSS part for Pinterest? Check it
      Please feel free to comment back if you feel something is wrong.
      Moreover, the above code for social sharing is perfectly working at my end.
      Thanks

      • Hi,

        Thank you for your reply. The CSS is still the same, I checked. It’s broken in the floating social sharing bar and the social sharing buttons too. Just the Pinterest one.

        Maybe I should delete all and do it again.

        Reply
        • Hi Caitriona, I think you are using other Pinterest buttons or plugin and that is causing a problem. Please deactivate the plugin or manual CSS code and check again.
          Thanks

          Reply
          • That’s right!! I recently downloaded the plugin for pinning images. But I since deleted it because I felt that it slowed down the site. Manual CSS code seems to be okay. Maybe that’s where the problem stemmed from

  8. Thank goodness for Suraj Katwal…

    Cant believe I have found your post. Been looking for a simple social share option for months now. Been so unhappy with the plugins.

    Your code works perfectly and I am beside myself relieved!
    Thank you for your time and effort and for sharing with us!

    I was busy with a GeneratePress ticket -issue regarding their recommended social share plugin which is not working.. when I happened to stumble upon you.

    Lucky me.

    I did post your link…

  9. This is great! Do you know if there is a way to adapt this to display the total share counts for each of the services alongside of the buttons?

    • Hi Sumit,
      Use media query or GeneratePress has inbuilt classes to hide/show in different devices.

    Thanks for publishing this article.

    I can’t see the code in step 2. Not sure if it’s just me having this problem.

    Would you be able to send me the relevant code please?

  11. Hi,
    am using your buttons on my site (surf-atlantic.com/blog/) in posts.
    Google search console is showing an error:” ‘noindex’ detected in ‘robots’ meta tag.”
    Looking at code, it says for all six buttons: “target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”
    How to change that?
    thanks,
    Tibor

      • Hi Suraj,

        Does answer what I found online apply to this case, then?
        (please, see below)

        “They don’t point to real pages, they’re just placeholders before each Social Network is loaded.
        Here is what Google has to say about nofollow links: Use rel=”nofollow” for specific links:
        Here are some cases in which you might want to consider using nofollow:
        – Untrusted content
        – Paid links
        – Crawl prioritization
        “Crawl prioritization” is relevant here: Search Engines can’t share your posts on Social Networks, so there’s no reason to invite Googlebot to follow these links. Using nofollow on these links enables Googlebot to crawl other pages you’d prefer to see in Google’s index (like other posts from your site).
        You can consequently leave the nofollow attribute here as it is actually good for those links not to be followed by search engines.

      • Hi Suraj,
        the code works fine!

        Is it possible to graphically build a block / hook with the new block elements of Generatepress 2.00? I have an element as a block / hook but I don’t know how to include the php code.
        Do you have a hint for me?

        thanks!

  13. Hi Suraj, thank your for this solution.
    But in the case of sharing to Pinterest site, it shares only a link of the page. Do you know the code for sharing images from the page? I mean I would like to share only selected images from the page, not the link of the page. I have been using Pinterest small button above the image, but I would like to use your solution. Thank you for your help. Milan

  14. I got the buttons to appear but they are overlapping the author name and there are spaces between them instead of being right next to each other. How do I fix that?

    • Hi Heidi,
      You have some errors in the Additional CSS section, that is why there is an error.
      Nevertheless, you can give margin-top to the main wrapper(wplogout-social-wrapper) class in the code.

      Reply
      • I am not very code savvy, but I’m trying to get better.
        Do you mean this part of the code:
        .wplogout-social-wrapper {
        margin: 30px 0;
        font-size: 0;
        }

        If so, I changed the 30 to 100 and still didn’t see a difference. Should the number be a lot larger to see a difference or is that the wrong one to change?

  15. hi Suraj,

    great post. I’ve just implemented all the above, but would like my social share buttons on the side like you have on the website…how can that be done?

    also, how do i add a border on the right of each social sharing container?
