Multiple Options of Buttons
The Social Sharing plugin empowers you with various customization options for your social buttons, blending flexibility and style seamlessly. It offers multiple display modes, including Icon Only, Text Only, and Both Icon and Text, allowing you to choose how the buttons are presented on your site. This feature ensures a customized look that complements your site’s design, enhancing the user interface while maintaining a cohesive user experience.
In addition to display options, the plugin caters to different layout preferences with its Horizontal and Vertical button arrangements. This adaptability is crucial for integrating the social sharing buttons into various design schemes, preserving the visual harmony of your site. Whether your layout calls for a linear spread or a vertical stack, the plugin accommodates these needs, ensuring an unobtrusive yet accessible placement.
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.
The Social Sharing plugin offers an impressive range of options for social media integration, supporting 39 different platforms. This extensive selection enables website owners to tailor their social sharing features to their audience’s preferences, ensuring maximum engagement and reach.
Along with selecting the most relevant social platforms, the plugin provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface for rearranging the order of these platforms. Additionally, you can personalize the platforms’ display names to enhance user engagement. For instance, you can change the default label ‘Facebook’ to a more action-oriented phrase like ‘Share with Facebook’.
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.
Layout Customization Features
Beyond design elements, the Social Sharing plugin provides extensive layout customization options. These include the ability to set the gap between the icon and the text, customize padding, and adjust the size of the icons and text. This level of control ensures that the social sharing buttons match your site’s aesthetic and fit perfectly within its layout. Whether aiming for a compact look or a more spaced-out arrangement, these settings allow precise tailoring to meet your design needs.
The Social Sharing plugin extends its versatility with advanced customization options, enabling a deeper level of control and personalization for your social sharing buttons.
- Social Sharing Popup: An optional popup window can be enabled to provide a focused sharing experience. This feature activates a popup when a user clicks a social sharing button, offering a dedicated space for sharing without leaving your site. 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.
