Adding Share Buttons to Listings

Allow vis­i­tors to share your con­tent on social media by adding Share but­tons to your list­ings.

Step 1 — Install the Jetpack plugin

The Shar­ing tools are pow­ered by the famous Jet­pack (Automat­tic) plu­g­in. It should come as a rec­om­mend­ed plu­g­in after theme acti­va­tion.

Step 2 — Activate the Sharing module

Now go to Jet­pack → Set­tings in your site’s dash­board and make sure you have acti­vat­ed the Shar­ing mod­ule.

Step 3 — Add Sharing Buttons

You can final­ly add the shar­ing but­tons to your list­ings in four short steps:

  1. Nav­i­gate to Set­tings → Shar­ing in your site’s dash­board.
  2. Under the Shar­ing But­tons, drag and drop the ser­vices you want to use into the Enabled Ser­vices area.
  3. Choose your pre­ferred but­ton style and where you would like the but­tons to appear.
  4. Save! That’s it!
