AddToAny Blog

Over 200,000 downloads for WordPress Share/Bookmark/Email Button plugin

May 5th, 2009

Holy cow!  Our WordPress sharing and bookmarking plugin has been downloaded over 200,000 times!  Thanks to everyone’s insightful feedback, and over 2 years of development, the AddToAny Share/Bookmark/Email Button plugin is the most popular sharing widget plugin for WordPress blogs.  We’re extra-proud of that!

It’s no secret that a lot of our effort goes into building a better WordPress plugin.  In our last WordPress milestone announcement  (50,000 downloads), we had a call for feedback and many of you responded with several actionable suggestions.  With your help we made some noteworthy improvements:

  • Standalone service links (exclusively on WordPress)
  • More customization
  • Support for older themes and platforms
  • Localization/i18

… and a whole lot more.  We’re continuing our call for feedback and invite all WordPress pros to weight in on how to make the plugin perfect before version 1.0 lands.  Please feel free to get in touch directly or post your thoughts on the WP forums.

In other WordPress/Automattic news, we recently had the pleasure of working with IntenseDebate on a sharing plugin for comments (see post) and developing a sharing solution for publishers.
