    Great plugin! How do I modify this WP plugin so that the Tweet/FB are all the same height and layed out completely horizontally? I don’t like how the Tweet box is bigger than the FB like box as per the general implementation.

  2. rovingsign says:

    Yep – 3.01 – the buttons are staggered in the 2010 theme…not in row.

    They should be in single line.


    Like This.

  3. Daniel Hauca says:

    Thank you for your replies, but can you tell me the names of the themes and where can I download those themes? I will try to sort out the problem and solve it.

  4. web r-sn says:

    nice plugin ..

    please add Buzz button

  5. Daniel Hauca says:

    web r-sn, thank you. I’ve decided to do it in the new version of the plugin.

  6. Carsten says:

    Plugin works fine with Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox (buttons in same line), but with IE 7 and Chrome the buttons are not in line.

    Seems to be a CSS issue?


  7. Daniel Hauca says:

    Carsten, thank you for your reply. But I tested the plugin in Chrome and everything is OK. Can you write here the URL where the problem can be seen.

  8. Hussein says:


    Nice plugin. When I recently upgraded the version, the google ‘Buzz’ icon began to show alongside FB and T. How can I remove the Buzz icon?

    thanks in advance!


  9. Daniel Hauca says:


    Open the file share-buttons-simple-use.php from the plugin directory and delete the line 379. I’ll add a feature to choose which buttons will be shown, in the new version of the plugin.

    Thank you.

  10. Dustin says:

    Like the plugin. Wondering how I can eliminate the word “Tweet” from the excerpts on my home page and also would like to display the buttons within the excerpts. Is that possible? You can get a better idea of what I’m talking about at my site http://www.dustinschmidt.com. Thanks for your contribution to the WordPress community.

  11. Hussein says:

    Thanks Ruben,

    Sorry, but first time I do this: do I have to manually look for line 379, or I’m assuming there’s an easier way?

    thanks again

  12. Daniel Hauca says:

    Dustin, I cannot see the buttons at your site http://www.dustinschmidt.com. And I want to inform you that the new version will show the buttons within the excerpts too. It will be created soon.

    Hussein, the easiest way to do it is to use 1.0 version of the plugin. :) I only added the buzz button in the 1.1 version of the plugin, which you want to delete. :)

    Thank you.

  13. treakk says:

    why my button have a reset?after more like people?

  14. Daniel Hauca says:

    treakk, what button do you mean? And have you changed the post link?

  15. Monica says:

    I also didn’t want the Buzz button… my first instinct was to look for another plugin, when I didn’t find the configuration possibility to remove it. But luckily I got here and found the solution. I removed that line and it is perfect now.

    You should however be careful, not many people are whiling, or even might not have the possibility, to manually go to that file and remove the line. I think the option of which network you want and which you don’t should be a top priority.

    In all, great job on this plugin!

  16. YourDealz.de says:

    I think it would be nice if there is a method to integrate the code manually in my site. is that possible?

  17. Daniel Hauca says:

    YourDealz.de, sorry, but I didn’t understand what do you mean. Can you write more details, please?

    Thank you.

  18. Droid says:

    hey, this is like addthis plug
    is that the only button you can provide?
    i would like to have stumbleupon button too..
    and more better if it can auto submit after post :)

    nice to know you, Ruben

  19. Daniel Hauca says:

    Droid, Facebook Like, Tweet and Google buzz buttons are the buttons which I can provide for now. Maybe it will be more buttons in the future.

    Thank you.

  20. Droid says:

    great. I’ll be wait for your update news. thanks

  21. narin says:

    This plugin is wonderful. It’s not too complicated. I like it.

    For some reason, I got a few space below the share icons http://dekisugi.net/archives/9980

    Do you have any idea how to fix it?


  22. Steve Weston says:


    Firstly, Narin, I think you need to adjust the facebook height to clear that gap? It looks like its the facebook button causing you grief!

    Is there any way you manually put this on pages, as I dont need it on all the pages?

    Many Thanks

  23. Daniel Hauca says:

    narin, please change the height of the facebook button and try again.

    Steve Weston, unfortunately, there is no way to put the button only on the pages you want. But it is a good idea and I will include that feature in one of the new versions of the plugin.

    Thank you.

  24. Julia says:

    Nice plugin.

  25. St├ęphane says:

    Hey Ruben!

    Great plugin, simple to setup and nice-looking.

    Just a quick question though: faces don’t seem to appear when the like button is clicked. Has anyone else had that issue?



    PS: when are you releasing the new version? ;)

  26. Daniel Hauca says:


    Have you tried to change the height and width of the like button and try again? Or can I see the problem?

    I’ll start to update my plugins after this month.

    Thank you.

  27. Red Rivera says:

    Awesome plugin! Would be more awesome if you integrated the Facebook Share (post to wall) button :D

  28. Daniel Hauca says:

    Red Rivera,

    Thank you for your proposal, I’ll think about it.

  29. Rob says:

    awesome plugin, but one question: since you’re plugin is called Share Buttons, why does it only say “Facebook Like”? Like is different than share…. or am i missing something in the settings.
    Please advice.

  30. Daniel Hauca says:


    In the Facebook docs I’ve read this: “The Like button lets a user share your content with friends on Facebook.”, and I think if a button share something it can be called “share button”. :)


  31. DSWfoto says:

    Great plugin. Is there a way to tell who ended up clicking the like button on a post?

  32. Daniel Hauca says:


    I think you can see them if the checkbox “Show Faces” is checked in the plugin options page.


  33. Reni Jenkins says:

    Facebook share does not show in Chrome. Can you assist?

  34. Daniel Hauca says:


    Can you write here the URL where I can see the problem?


  35. Genti says:

    Hello, I have activated the plugin in the site http://incominghealthinsurance.com, but it is not showing anywhere.
    Is there any tutorial or should I put the code in the templates?


  36. Vitor says:

    Hi Ruben,
    I noticed that “like” action now appear as recent activites in Facebook, not as full stories as before. I’ve seen other like buttons that are action like full stories, using instead of .
    Any chance you could update this / gives us the option? Sharing the ful stories is a must…

  37. Daniel Hauca says:

    Genti, please write here a post url of the site and I’ll check it out.

    Vitor, I’ll think about that.

    Thank you.

  38. Wayne says:

    hi i am trying to use your plugin but I cant get the tweet count to work!? I have tried tweeting 3 times and the count does not go up? The like buttons count works fine though…. Please advise

  39. Daniel Hauca says:

    Wayne, I think the problem concerns to twitter website, not to plugin. :)

  40. zen10 says:

    Great plugin Ruben!

    Displays in all my posts via single.php but never on front page (index.php) using the same code calling the_content();

    Any advice?

  41. Hi Ruben, thanks for this Plugin – it is really nice and simple to use.

    It think it would be useful, if you can integrate an option to use the button above and below content (both simultaneously). Or maybe to integrate it manually in the templates.

  42. Mike says:

    I found that when I send a post to facebook it adds a avatar before the post that is not mine. It appears to pick my last registered subscribers avatar. My ideas?

  43. Mike says:

    When I post to facebook the post on facebook show a different avatar then mine. Any suggestions?

  44. Daniel Hauca says:

    zen10, it is impossible to exclude pages in this version, but it is a good suggestion.

    Hardware Test, you can’t do it now, and your suggestion is good too.

    Mike, you have to add Facebook Open Graph protocol into the website head to fix that problem: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/. Maybe you cannot do it yourself, but unfortunately the plugin doesn’t do it.

    Thank you.
