Easy customization of active buttons and position in the Settings menu. Facebook Like and Twitter Share buttons are loaded by default. Other buttons, including Digg, Facebook Send, Flattr, LinkedIn, Google "+1", Goo gle Buzz, Stumbleupon, Hyves, Email, Reddit (and the deprecated Facebook Share b utton), can be added through the `Settings->Really simple share` menu. Please be careful when selecting the `Show buttons in these pages` options : it can interact badly with other slide/fade/carousel/sidebar active plugins. If you want to place the active buttons only in selected posts, use the [really_ simple_share] shortcode. If you want to hide the share buttons inside selected posts, set the "really_sim ple_share_disable" custom field with value "yes". For more informations: imple-facebook-twitter-share-buttons-per-wordpress.html == Installation == 1. Upload the `really-simple-facebook-twitter-share-buttons` directory into the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory 2. Set your favourite values in the `Settings->Really simple share` menu in Word press 3. Activate the plugin through the `Plugins` menu in WordPress 4. Enjoy! == Frequently Asked Questions == = What's the difference between Facebook Like and Share buttons? = Facebook Like's behaviour is similar to Facebook Share: it is a counter and if y ou click it a story is published inside your Wall on Facebook. We suggest you to use Facebook Like because it works better identifying title an d text for the story to be published and it's the only one currently developed b y Facebook. = Why users can't choose which image to share when using Facebook Like button ? = This is an automated Facebook behaviour: clicking Facebook Like the user can't c hoose each time which image to share, but you can set the right image inside the code using the <a href="">Open Graph Tag</a> og:image.

= When I activate the plugin it messes up with other plugins showing post excerp ts in different ways (fade, carousel, sidebar). What can I do? = Uncheck all the "Show buttons in these pages" options in the `Settings->Really s imple share` menu, except for "Single posts". This way all the share buttons should disappear, except the one displayed beside the post in every Single post page. = Is it possible to modify the style/css of the buttons? = Yes, every button has its own div class (e.g. "really_simple_share_twitter") for easy customization inside the theme css files. Plus, the div surrounding all buttons has its own class "really_simple_share". = Is it possible to show the buttons anywhere inside my theme, using a PHP funct ion? = Yes, you can call the really_simple_share_publish($link='', $title='') PHP funct ion, passing it the link and the title used by the buttons. You shouldn't leave the parameters blank, unless the code is put inside the WP l oop. For example, use this code to create buttons linking to the website home page: echo really_simple_share_publish(get_bloginfo('url'), get_bloginfo('name')); = How about other social networks? = We'll see! == Screenshots == 1.
