Documentation: AccessPress Social Share Pro

Once the plugin is installed and activated you will find a menu named “AccessPress Social Pro” in the left menu bar of the admin menu. When clicked or hovered on it, you will see sub menus of the plugin. Clicking on the submenu ‘Social Share Pro’ will redirect you to the Social Share settings page where you can set the plugin’s social share options.

The social profiles with share option can be implemented in your site by either using a [apss-share] Shortcode and/or a AccessPress Social Share Widget from Appearance’s widget section. They can also be displayed inline and/or in a popup, and/or a flyin, and/or floating sidebar and/or as a sticky header, depending on your requirements . All of them are described below.

Before proceeding with creating an inline button, popup window or flyin window, lets understand what all settings we will need to set that will be common for all of them.

When you click on Social Share Pro, you will see that it has a total of 5 main tabs, The tab on the top – Social Share will have further six sub tabs inside it. All the settings that you will set in these sub tabs of Social Share will be common for all the buttons through out your site, unless you use a shortcode to display the buttons with social profile. However, the values set for the other two main tabs – Url shortner and Share Counter Settings will be common for the shortcode aswell.

  1. Social Network
    You can configure the social media you want to display and sort the orders of selected social medias here
  2. Share Options
    From Share options tab, you can configure the options for display of the social share icons. You can show the social shares in posts, pages, archive, categories, custom post types, custom taxonomies.
