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

If it’s not installed, go to Plugins → Add New → Search for “Jetpack” and click on Install Now. Once it installs, click on Activate.

Step 2 — Activate the Sharing module

Now go to Jetpack → Settings Sharing → under the Sharing buttons tab activate the option “Add sharing buttons to your posts and pages.”
