Časté dotazy

Why are the share icons not aligned properly ?

Share icons are aligned using CSS. This alignment can sometimes be disturbed by the active theme used. This can be corrected by CSS. Please refer this image for the list of CSS classes used by plugin to modify it or else please post your issue in the support forum I’ll try my best to give a quick CSS fix for the misalignment.

Social icons are not displayed in the page !

Social icons or other feature may be hidden if the option „Hide in all pages“ option is selected in „Conditions to display“ section. Please select „Show in all pages“ option to display the buttons. If the buttons are still not displayed, please raise an issue in the Support forum.

How to disable a feature in specific page alone ?

WP Socializer has a feature called „conditional display“ where a feature can be made to shown only at desired places by creating rules. Please look for the section „Conditions to display the template“ under every feature page to add rules as per the requirement.

How to disable/hide share buttons in all pages ?

Please select „Hide in all pages“ option under „conditions to display the template“ section in all the templates to hide them being displayed.

I was very impressed with the support, especially since within 24 hours of me asking, they had added Etsy at my request in an update. The plugin works as advertised, the support response was incredible and frankly, you can't ask much more than that. Very professional indeed!

The plugin does a great job. Offers almost every social button that your site needs and doesn't ask for a "Pro" upgrade to add any particular button or Sticky layout. Quite feature-rich yet free and clean. Kudos to the developer for his work 🙂
