Tagged: nice social buttons that works
Giving up. Hours spent browsing the net for nice social share and follow buttons. But there is nothing I like that works.
What Im looking for is the nice simple icon style that for example can be found at the studiopress site. With follow site in the header and share after each post. They need to include FB, email, instagram and g+
Any advice in this matter would be highly appreciated.
They should work on all my pages
thank you. Trying simple social icons. But they dont "follow" you do not happen to know of a "follow" plugin?
I hope I don't confuse the issue. It seems to me that "Following" is a matter of the visitor going to your social media site and choosing to follow you there. Are you wanting them to initiate the "follow" from within the wordpress site?
I've use Simple Social for that purpose and while it doesn't have an exhaustive list of social icons, it's pretty solid and works with Genesis out of the box.
In terms of Sharing, I'm looking in to ShareThis I've tested it in a non-Genesis environment. From the share button a popup asks the visitor to login using a variety of connection methods (Google, Facebook etc.) and it initiates the share. It requires java added to the header and someone more familiar with this stuff would have to comment on anything "custom" that would need to be done in a Genesis environment.
Hope this helps.
