Help to get BIG social share buttons

Help to get BIG social share buttons was created by artctrldel.info@gmail.com
Hi guys,

I would like to get BIG social share buttons below all articles.

Something similar to the ones on the image attached.

I have "Add To Any" plug-in with small social share icons.

I read Add to Any has a new Share as SMS feature, I would love to get that one aswell.

I want it to say SHARE on the buttons.

I'm in doubt of the best way to do this, I know there are many. I want the lightest one.

Any sugestion would be a great help.

Thank you

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

Check in the plugin settings to change the button size, from Extensions > Plugins > "AddToAny Share Buttons"
In the Add to Any Options tab define a bigger icon size.

To add SMS button, in Service Buttons HTML Code add a new line with this code:
<a class="a2a_button_sms"></a>

Hi Valentin,

First of all, thanks. You're always a great help.

I would like the buttons to become more rectangular and say sHARE in 'em, so the user is never in doubt of what the buttons do.

Thanks

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

Unfortunately the plugin doesn't have a setting to customize the look of the buttons neither add a custom "share" text.

Unfortunately, "Add to any" is the best choice in my opinion, since include SMS button and a huge list of media sharing providers.

The list of similar extensions is here , in case you want to compare.

Hi Val,

I agree. I'm keeping add to any. I have sized 'em up.

To make sure users know they're share buttons I have made a png. (Attached)

I want to place it above my add to any buttons in a custom html module.

Thing is, since add to any is a plugin, I dont know how to place it above it. (Image attached)

I can place it above Taboola.

In other words, I can't seem to find add to any's position on afterburner 2, so I can place the png above it.

Since add to any is a plugin it's not displayed?

Thanks

Hi Benjamin,

There is no module position to place the "share this article" and below the "add to any" plugin since is component territory.

There may be a tweak with rereplacer. May I have the URL of the page from the screenshot?

Are you familiar with Rereplacer? We have a tutorial to help you get started .

Do a replacement to look for the opening div of "add to any":
<div class="addtoany_container">

Replace with:
<h3>Share this article</h3>
<div class="addtoany_container">

Be sure the rereplacer plugin from Extensions > Plugins is ordered as last.

Hi Val,

It seems a bit difficult, but IØ'm prepared to do it.

Just a thought, Add to any has a place to post singel buttons code. Can I insert a png in there?

By using the <img> tag:
<img src="path/to/your-image.png" />
Replace path/to/your-image.png with the right location of your image.

I tried this:

<img src="/www/artctrldel.net/templates/rt_afterburner2/css/billede" />

With this result (attached file)

Any suggestions or back to plan A?

Maybe I'm missing some information, but the img src should probably be just:
/templates/rt_afterburner2/css/billede

So eliminate the "/www/artctrldel.net"

Kind regards,
Nick
