This sharing gadget for blogspot blogs is a lightweight version of JumboShare Counter. I will thus call it JumboShare Simplified. It loads faster and takes up negligible load time. Load time is a major SEO factor and Google will rank you higher in SERPs only if your webpage loads faster and provides a user friendly interface.

I have created this lightweight sharing gadget by aligning all major social media buttons inside a horizontal row. Users can toggle the gadget to expand or collapse the number of sharing buttons displayed.    

This gadget includes the following social media buttons:

  1. Facebook
  2. GooglePlus +1
  3. Twitter
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Pinterest
  6. StumbleUpon
  7. Buffer
  8. Viber - Will automatically display in mobile devices
  9. Whatsapp - Auto displayed in mobile devices
  10. Print

These buttons have the exact same look and style as their official counterparts. It uses the official stylesheet for Facebook, Google, Twitter and the rest.

The viber and whatsapp share buttons will display only in mobile devices such as smartphones. Your visitors can now share your blog posts with their viber contacts and whatsapp friends. I am using IsMobileRequest condition to allow these buttons to display only smartphones instead of using CSS display:none.

You can choose to display this social sharing gadget just below blog post title or you can display it at the bottom of every blog post. Lets get straight to work.

Note: If you are using Jumboshare counters plugin, then you will need to remove them first.

Add Social Media Buttons at Top/Bottom Of Every Blog Post

add sharing buttons in blogger

Follow these easy steps to add sharing buttons just below every blog post title or the post footer:

Inside your theme, search for  <data:post.body/> . This code is located twice, once for mobile view and once for desktop view. Therefore consider the second appearance of <data:post.body/> only.

Note: If you want to show this horizontal sharing bar below post titles, then paste the following HTML code just above <data:post.body/>   but if you wish to display the sharing bar at bottom of each blog post then paste the following HTML code just below <data:post.body/>

If you want to display the sharing buttons both at top and bottom of each blog post, then paste the following HTML code once above <data:post.body/> and once below <data:post.body/>.

Customization Guide:

  • All button locations are labeled for easy readability. You can easily change/swap the locations of button within the widget.
  • Replace stc_network  with your buffer handle or profile username or simply your blog title without spaces.
  • If you wish to display a social media button in mobile devices only then paste its code inside the yellow highlighted tags.
  • All buttons inside the purple highlighted tags will remain hidden when page loads and will be displayed only when the user clicks the +/- toggle button. Buttons will display using this toggle button which we named the switch.
  • If you wish to add more buttons inside the switch then simply copy its code and paste it inside the purple switch tags.
  • To remove buttons from inside the switch, simply copy the button's code and paste it above the switch tag i.e. <div class='switchoff2' style='display:none;'>

Save your template and you are all done!

  2. Awesome thing brother..
    Just a quick question, you removed total count from this, was that increasing the load time?

    ReplyDelete
  3. The new blog I am working on have super simple theme with super fast load time. The only things I am adding is this social media plugin. I also use different compression tools to reduce image sizes.
    Usually, I add images with quotes and other useful things on it, so I want to add Pinterest plugin which allows readers to Pin images (A plugin that shows Pinterest button on every image). I am unable to find it on your blog, Let me know if its in the pipeline.
    As I don't want to increase the load time. Do you recommend adding it?

    Thanks :)
