Social Plugin for Wordpress

Hey all,

I am desperately trying to pick out a good social plugin for my websites. I have tried out several but am having a tough time finding the right fit. Ideally the plugin would allow me to have a small section at the end of posts where people could Facebook like, Tweet, or Google+ the article. I was thinking about having the sliding module on the side of the screen too.

Any thoughts on which plugin could help me out that isn't super complicated to set up? And what do you think of the sliding modules for posts? Too aggressive or a good thing to have?

Thanks

Hi swarlley,

I think the sliding module is good enough. You can try the Slick Social Share pluigin. You can find a good list of the best social media plugins for Wordpress at:

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hey Cecille,

Nice to hear from you again. And thanks for the recommendation.

I was able to get the look and functionality that I waned by using two plugins. I have 'Slick Social Share Buttons' for a floating sidebar on the home page and posts and I have 'Page/Post Specific Social Share Buttons' to add the small clickable icons at the start and end of the posts.

I noticed that on my work computer the floating sidebar doesn't appear to the left of the articles though so I am playing around with some settings to get it straightened out.

Hi swarlley,

I'm glad to hear you've found good ones to use on your site! :) For the Slick Social Share i use the codes found on their demo page to get it to work the way I want. Maybe it will help you too. :)

Have a great weekend!
