Adding sharing buttons below post titles or at post footer are best locations to increase your social shares and social media referral traffic. You can now easily add branded sharing buttons in your wordPress themes at the bottom of blog posts without paying a penny. It is far more advanced than AddThis's Jumbo Share Counter plugin which costs $10/month!

JSC Horizontal Sharing Bar by default includes the following 10 popular share buttons:

  1. Facebook
  2. GooglePlus +1
  3. Twitter
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Pinterest
  6. StumbleUpon
  7. Buffer
  8. Viber
  9. Whatsapp
  10. Print

The following features makes it the most advanced sharing plugin:

  • Mobile responsive,
  • SEO friendly,
  • Lightweight & Lightening fast,
  • Animated number counter on scroll,
  • Natural in design
  • Customizable
  • Expand/Collapse option
  • Hosted on cloud servers 
  • No copyright links
  • Free of cost!

We have both Horizontal and Vertical Sharing bars in stake. Today we will learn how to install the Horizontal Jumbo Sharing bar in your Wordpress themes and later in our next tutorial we will also discuss how to install the vertical jumbo sharing bar in WordPress.

Lets get to work now!

Install Horizontal Jumbo Sharing bar in WordPress

Adding plugins in WordPress themes often require the use of hooks i.e. Actions and Filters. If you are using Genesis or Thesis frameworks then you can easily add the JSC plugin in any location you want but to make sure we keep the installation steps as simple as possible, I will share a standard method that will work on all frameworks.

NOTE:
Please Keep your FileZilla FTP connected, you may need it to restore function.php file if in case something goes wrong.

1. Go to your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Editor

2. Choose the stylesheet file i.e. style.css and paste the following CSS code at the bottom of style.css

    It's a nice plugin indeed. I want to ask you that how do I install the jquery part just above </body> in Genesis Child Theme. I have added it using Genesis' Theme Settings but unfortunately it's not working (Counter and Animation effects are not working). Waiting for your reply.

      For Gensis install the simple hooks plugin buddy. It will give easy access to different locations/filters of your blog.

    2. @Mohammad
      I have also tried using Simple hooks plugin but still the widget was not working. I don't know what's the problem but I have figured out the solution.
      Firstly,in jQuery code I replaced all '$' sign with 'jQuery' and made a separate .js file. Then I imported that file using wp_enqueue_script function. I added rest of the jQuery (Plugin settings and Animation Setting) in genesis theme settings under footer scripts. Followed rest of the tutorial and widget started working. Thanks for this brilliant widget.
