Furthermore, the plugin offers multiple button styles, such as Links, Outlined Buttons, and Solid Buttons, each providing a unique visual appeal. This level of customization allows for a more personalized touch to your website’s design, catering to diverse aesthetic preferences. The platform-colored options for icons, text, borders, and backgrounds enable the buttons to dynamically adapt their color scheme based on the social media platform, ensuring a visually coherent and engaging user experience.

Social Platforms

Along with selecting the most relevant social platforms, the plugin provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface for rearranging the order of these platforms.

Styling Options for Buttons

The Social Sharing plugin offers a rich set of styling options that vary based on the chosen button type. Whether you opt for a link or an outlined button, you can customize aspects like the text, icon, border, or background colors. These options also extend to hover states, allowing for a dynamic interaction experience. Notably, for solid buttons, an innovative feature enables color adjustments on hover using HSLA values. This means you can subtly darken or lighten the platform-colored options, adding a sophisticated touch to the user interface.

The dimensions of this popup are customizable, ensuring it fits perfectly within the context of your site’s design.
  • Customizable CSS Classes: For those who require specific styling needs or want to integrate the plugin seamlessly with custom themes, the plugin provides options to assign custom CSS classes to the button and container elements. This flexibility allows for intricate styling adjustments and ensures that the plugin’s appearance is in complete harmony with your site’s unique design.

Efficient Performance and Lightweight Design

The Social Sharing plugin is exemplary in its efficiency and optimized performance. It intelligently creates a single SVG sprite map containing only the icons for the social platforms chosen by the user. This approach significantly reduces the load on your website, as it avoids loading individual icons for each platform and instead loads just one file.

Coupled with CSS that is customized based on user-selected options, this ensures that only the necessary styles are applied, further enhancing the site’s loading speed. The plugin’s social sharing popup feature, powered by a vanilla JavaScript script, lacks extra library dependencies, ensuring fast and responsive functionality. This design focus on efficiency and performance ensures your site remains swift and responsive, delivering an optimal user experience without the burden of unnecessary resources.
