Flipper Sharing Widget

flipper sharing widget
Two years ago we released a simple sharing widget using the flapper Icon set. We made use of CSS sprites in order to make the roll over effect more quick and effective. Now when we have already taught most of you how to apply CSS3 transitions, its time to apply them in a different way. I just designed two additional flapper icons for Pinterest and Google Plus and now this new version has several benefits over the previous. The Icons rotate vertically and flips upon mouse hover. The time taken by the effect is so small that the user rarely notices image shift. We will be releasing some more social media icons in coming days with some unseen CSS3 effects to let you take the full bliss of animation without using jquery. Please see a demo first:

Live Demo

Update: Google Plus link has been corrected and now you can share your posts on Google+ too with both thumbnail and description.

Our Lab is too over crowded with gadget and plugins so please wait for a minute for the page to load.

How it works?

We used our predesigned icons and packed them into one image. Then we created separate classes for each icon by specifying the background position property in order to connect the sub classes with the main class containing the Packed image. For the vertical flip effect we used the property of ease-in and timed it at o.15 seconds.
Flapper set includes a total of 12 icons but we have excluded Technorati, yahoo and YouTube icons in order to make use of the more useful ones like:
  1. Google Plus
  2. Facebook
  3. Twitter
  4. Pinterest
  5. Delicious
  6. Digg
  7. Stumble upon
  8. Reddit
  9. RSS

Why use it?

  1. It uses only CSS and no Scripts,
  2. It loads from your very own blog and does not connect to third party servers,
  3. It loads fast and looks great!
  4. Attracts readers and increases chances of social circulation

Make these changes:
  • To change the color of the text that appears on top of widget edit #333333
  • If in case you wanted to remove some icons then just delete its code. For example if we wish to remove the Digg icon from the list then we just need to delete the code:
<a class='digg' expr:href='&quot;http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&amp;url=&quot;  + data:post.url' rel='external nofollow' target='_blank' title='Digg this :&gt;'/>
The HTML has been cleanly indented and structured so you would not encounter any trouble playing with the code.

Play with the code

If you are looking to rearrange the icons or shuffle them or even to remove some then you would enjoy using our HTML editor.
Tip: Copy and paste this entire code inside the HTML editor and hit preview!

    Hope you will give it soon..


  10. its showing error on my blog
    please help

  11. @haider @freen8apps
    Since no direct script for G+ share is available or may be I could not get one. I have provided a link directly to the users profile. If you found a code for G+ or pinterest icons then please share it.

    @ aswath

    If you think you don;t like the transitions then you can delete the following code:

    -webkit-transition: ease-in 0.15s all;
    -moz-transition: ease-in 0.15s all;
    -o-transition: ease-in 0.15s all;
    -ms-transition: ease-in 0.15s all;
    transition: ease-in 0.15s all;

    This will remove the flipping effect.

    I will check your mail bro. Actually the number of emails per day are increasing daily and its getting difficult to manage blog.

    @Abdul Rafay
    I just updated the code. it works fine now. Apologies for inconvenience.

  12. Bro
    The google plus and Pinterest sharing are not working
    Why cant you use the same code of your floating widget ( google +1 , Pin it ) for fixing the problem ?


  13. Mustafa bhai just see how i did on skfanclub.com

    i think for time being we can use like this .....

  14. Brother,
    How do you solved the Error problem ?
    Please explain
    When i created a subscribption box below post, I got an error saying " Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: Element type "form" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>". "

    but i closed form tag. Then whats the problem ???
    Please help me to solve the problem

  15. in my template is at 2 places where should i paste this code now

  16. it doesnt appear on my blog :( I pasted your given code on right place.. what i do ? :S

  17. @twinkle The widget is working just perfectly. See another demo here Flipper Sharing


    The google plus button would still take the visitor to his profile where he can share your link. So it works pretty good though we don't have a direct script for it.

    for that error, make sure all div,form,a,p tags are closed properly


    the first occurrence buddy.


    You didn't try it :)

  18. Thanx Alot Mohammad Bro !

  19. How to show the share counter?

  20. looks great but the only one that is linking is pintrest? too bad.... anyone else have this issue?

  21. Yes, the only one which is working is Pinterest...

  22. Why we need RSS button in this sharing widget?
    because it showing codes, what user will do with that code? only SE can understand it.

  23. i am confused ..in new blogger template data:post.body/> shows are 3...
    what is a place to paste these codes??1data:post.body/> or 2 data:post.body/>
    3 data:post.body/> ????

    1. Furqan, I had 2 and it only worked when I added to the 2nd. Hopt his helps

  24. Thank you so much for this wonderful tool. I was able to install it and am glad to see it in my post. However, is it possible to have it under each post? By that I mean that on the home page none of the posts show the plugins, only when you go to each individual post. Since people can read the post in its integrity from the home page, they may not see them. Thanks again.

  25. Admin Ki Himat hai k hum jesy logon ko sambhal rakha hai. Koi hurR hota to Jutiya marR maRr k bhaga deta :v

  26. hi, thanks for al your work. I, like many others it seems, don't have anywhere in my code... any ideas?

  27. sorry I did write it but hasn't shown, I don't have 'data post body' anywhere

  28. ok so I instead just added it as a widget through html, but pinterest is the only one linking, as mentioned a while back. was there ever a solution?

  29. Thank You So Much For This Nice Widget
