How to set up and use more networks (+) button (Share Button)?

Article sections

    Overview

    The more/share buttons are made to reveal networks after the button has been clicked. Those buttons have the pretty same settings and functions. The difference is that the Share button can display custom text, custom icons, and the share counter. Which of those you will use depends on what you try to achieve.

    • use the more (+) networks button when you have a list of networks and you need a tiny button that will open the rest.
    • use the share button when you have a single button displayed, showing networks for share. You can also use it just like the more button – to break a long list of networks.

    Example of the more button

    Example of the share button

    General button setup

    Both buttons have a general setup that you can use to control the functionality. Those options are located in the Sharing -> Global Network Options.

    More Button

    The button has a few different display functions. You can choose those from the More Button setting.

    • Display all active networks after more buttons – with this design the button is added to the list of networks. All networks that are behind the button will be hidden and appear when you click the button inline.
    • Display all social networks as pop up – this will show a pop-up with all active in the plugin social networks for sharing (not just those you pick for sharing). In this setup, you don’t need to add any networks after the more button.
    • Display only active social networks as a pop up – with this setup, you add more buttons to the list of networks (like the first method). When you click it the additional networks will reveal as a pop up.

    Available options

    • More button – choose the function of the more button
    • More button icon – choose the button icon
    • More button pop up style – choose the pop up networks style. That reflects the pop up panel when the function with the pop up is chosen.
    • Template of social networks in More pop up – pick a template for the share buttons in the more networks pop up. If you don’t pick anything custom, the plugin will use the default theme you pick for the position.
    • Customize “Share via” text – set up custom pop up title text.

    Share Button

    The share button has a few different display functions just like the more button. You can choose those from the More Button setting.

    • Display all active networks after more buttons – with this design the button is added to the list of networks. All networks that are behind the button will be hidden and appear when you click the button inline.
    • Display all social networks as pop up – this will show a pop-up with all active in the plugin social networks for sharing (not just those you pick for sharing). In this setup, you don’t need to add any networks after the more button.
    • Display only active social networks as a pop up – with this setup, you add more buttons to the list of networks (like the first method). When you click it the additional networks will reveal as a pop up.

    Available options

    • Share button – choose the function of the more button
    • Share button icon – Choose the button icon
    • Share button style – choose the style of the button. It can be icon only, text only, or button with icon and text.
    • Display the total counter with the following position – Choose to show in the button the share value (total share counter).
    • Share button pop up style – choose the pop up networks style. That reflects the pop up panel when the function with pop up is chosen.
    • Template of social networks in more pop up – pick a template for the share buttons in the more networks pop up. If you don’t pick anything custom, the plugin will use the default theme you pick for the position.
    • Customize “Share via” text – setup custom pop up title text.

    Additional Buttons Setup for Display Position

    Both buttons support position-based options. This means that you can modify the display function or style for each position. To do so you need to have the “Overwrite Global Share Button Styles And Networks” enabled. After that in the Additional Options, you can change the global settings you have made.

    Using the More/Share Button

    The usage is quite simple. Just add the button in the share networks just like you do with the rest of the networks. Place location based on the function you will use.
