Add sharebar to listed post

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,


I see that listed post (i.e. blog page) has karma icon under the author avatar.

Just wanna ask if there is a way to add also other social icons?

Perhaps not under the avatar but under the post text/excerpt.


I've tryed to edit section.php adding a line such as "add_shortcode..." calling for "get_shares" function but this got me a syntax error.

I'd really love your built-in sharebar look and I prefer tu use this instead of official icons called by shortcodes.


Hope you can help


Best regards

Hi Carlo,


I recommend whatever changes you have made to the section.php file, we do not recommend nor support changes to the core files, this can actually void all support.


In regards to adding social icons beneath your posts excerpts, you will need to use a hook and then add the icons, your self. You can find more information about hooks here.




I will also make a not of your idea and add it to our feature requests.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi Danny,


thanks for your suggestion but using hooks is not was I was looking for since I think shortcodes will be more useful composing a custom layout.

Hope this feature request will soon be satisfied ;)


Thanks again

      Recently I noticed that the Social Share count were reset to zero across several sites I manage.   Some had very high numbers that some clients liked to see.   Can this be refreshed to get the old counts back?

      After changing protocol http to https I have lost all count information next to the icon in the Sharebar extension. All counts is set to zero. Is there any chance to give number of sharing take back?

      The counter next to the icon in the Sharebar extension adds more mess than value for us. 
      Is there an easy way/code to hide the counter? (so that the icons line up closer?)

      Is there an easy CSS fix to change the social media icons in Sharebar so they are colored, not just on hover?

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.
