Please read: The Genesis Simple Share plugin has been moved to the WordPress plugin repository. You can now download it there.
Many of you with a keen eye have spotted some social media sharing buttons on a few our sites such as Copyblogger and StudioPress. Some of you have even noticed them at the bottom my posts here as well.
I’ve been asked by a number of people if they are available or how they can get their hands on them. In most cases, I sent the plugin via email and mentioned that we were internally testing it for our Rainmaker Platform.
We’ve always been generous with our customers and today is no different. I’m very pleased to announce that the Genesis Simple Share plugin is now available for everyone to download for free.
When downloading the plugin, please understand that it is in beta version. This means there’s a chance something might not work quite right. If that’s the case, just get in touch with me and I’ll relay it on to our team.
Genesis Simple Share Options
One of the great features with the Genesis Simple Share plugin is that it’s easy to setup. We built an extremely simple options page for you.
Just enable the social media buttons that you want to show on your blog posts. You can even rearrange the order you want them to display as well.
Increase visibility with the Genesis Simple Share plugin.
We’ve provided a few options for displaying the buttons. You can choose between a small bar, medium bar or have them in a box. You get to choose if you want them before your content, after your content or in both places.
Updated: Now you have the ability to reposition the Simple Share buttons.
Configure your sharing buttons with a simple settings page.
You might be wondering how to customize the Genesis Simple Share buttons. Below is the CSS that I used to change from the branded social media colors that come by default to a single color that matches my website.
