How to Setup Custom Share URL for The Social Share Buttons

Article sections

    With Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress you can set a custom share URL. If such URL is provided the plugin will use it instead of the post/page address that is automatically assigned.

    Important! Almost all social share networks read the custom share details using the custom URL you provide. In the custom share options the key parameter that you need to fill is URL.
