Many of you have asked about sharing to Google’s social network, Google+, within your universal sharing menu. Our response has generally been, ‘We are waiting for Google to release a sharing endpoint for Google+,’ But then we got tired of waiting and developed a interim workaround.
Of course, as soon as Google+ releases a traditional public sharing endpoint, we’ll switch over to it immediately and automatically.
Enjoy sharing to Google+!
Lockerz is best known as the leader in rewarding social expression and together we’re working on some awesome new things in the universal sharing space.
Primarily just the front-facing name, dear developers. The original mission continues. AddToAny will be branded as Lockerz Share, and Lockerz Share will continue as the best universal sharing platform and widget.
Speed, efficiency, customization, and innovation will be at the heart of continued development, and we’re super excited about the upcoming months. You should be too. :)
As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or thoughts: http://www.addtoany.com/contact/
AddToAny’s sharing plugin for WordPress is one of the most popular plugins for WordPress. Having been downloaded over 1.6 million times by WordPress publishers from all over the world, AddToAny is also the top plugin for sharing.
We love WordPress. We love feedback.
Today we are releasing version .9.9.8 of the plugin, and two little features are sure to please.
#1: WordPress widgets!
Not to be confused with the generic term, a WordPress widget is something that can be easily moved and manipulated in a theme without having to delve into code. So this new AddToAny plugin “widget” feature makes it very easy to move your sharing elements where you want them.
#2: Shortcode for sharing!
Ever wanted to display sharing buttons in the middle of a post? Or wanted only certain posts to be shared? It’s pretty easy now. To output AddToAny right where you want it, just type the following in a post:
Want to customize the shared URL to share something other than the current post? Try it like this:
[addtoany url="http://www.example.com/page.html" title="Some Example Page"]
Thank you to everyone in the WordPress community who has supported the plugin through recommending (sharing!), feedback, translations, and patches. It’s been a big help for over 4 years of active development. (We’re almost at version 1.0!)
