Hey now, WordPress Share Buttons have arrived to WordPress.com blogs!
The new Sharing Buttons include the new Twitter Tweet button, Facebook Share or Like, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Email, Print, Press It, and WordPress’ own Like button. This is a well deserved and needed addition for those us that are WordPress.com bloggers that have been having to add their own Share Buttons for some time. I’ve been using the AddtoAny button allowing using users to share posts to various social sites as well as the TweetMeme Twitter button for re-tweets. They are both easy to add to your blog posts, but they were continued manual additions at the end of each post. With this update the Share Buttons appear automatically at the bottom of your WordPress post and/or your blog pages. This is a must add tool to your WordPress blog!
Here’s how to add them:
Under “Settings” click on the “Sharing” category link. That will bring you to the Sharing Settings page which will display all the available services/share buttons. Simply drag and drop the buttons of your choosing into the Enabled Services area. The buttons will appear in the Live Preview area which gives you a glimpse of what your share buttons will look like on your post and page. You can leave the buttons as traditional small logo icons or your can enable and convert the buttons to Smart Buttons. Read More…
