I was wondering if there is any chance you could add a (premium) add-on for some simple social sharing buttons?
If I’m not mistaken you already developed something along those lines for the WP Show Posts Pro add-on.
Or, if you could recommend a plugin that’d be cool as well.

If you want social icons in the menu like the site you linked, this should help:
If you want the icons in widget, then checkout Tom’s lightweight social icon plugin:
Let me know if this helps 🙂March 1, 2017 at 7:03 am #285648Nick
Hi Leo, thanks for your reply.
Though what I’m looking for, are *share buttons* for posts/pages – not icons/links to profiles 🙂
But I understand the confusion as the page I linked has both lol. (If you scroll down to the content on the page you’ll see the kind of buttons I’m referring too).March 1, 2017 at 10:11 am #285718TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
There’s definitely a void when it comes to sharing plugins.
The slowness typically comes from fetching share counts I’ve found.
It’s something I might look into one day 🙂March 1, 2017 at 4:30 pm #285879LeoStaffCustomer SupportMarch 2, 2017 at 2:57 am #286009Nick
All good Leo, could’ve been a little more clear myself.
I guess I’ll test a few plugins and make sure to disable the counting, thanks!March 2, 2017 at 9:11 am #286182TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperAugust 31, 2018 at 2:52 am #665063André
Nick, curious – what plugin/solution did you end up settling on?August 31, 2018 at 4:35 am #665132DavidStaffCustomer Support
if you’re not in need of share counts then this is super lightweight and built for GP:
For share counts, i been using Sassy Share by Heator just recently.September 27, 2018 at 2:38 pm #688105Jon Ander
I´ve tried gp-social-share-svg and you´re right: it´s super light and well done. But, what about the security of SVG in WP?September 27, 2018 at 3:51 pm #688127DavidStaffCustomer Support
due to the nature of the SVG file format it is possible that they could contain malicious code. Hence why WP doesn’t natively support them. This is only an issue if you get SVG images from ‘unsavoury’ sources.
As you cans see in that plugin the SVG is added in-line and there is no visible signs of links or code so you can be assured they are super safe.September 28, 2018 at 12:01 am #688288Jon Ander
all right! Sorry for my lack of knowledge in the matter.
I´m already implementing the plugin in several of my websites. It works great and it is a pleasure that is well oriented to the development possibilities and well thought out for GP.
thanks for the info!September 28, 2018 at 5:22 am #688470DavidStaffCustomer SupportMarch 21, 2019 at 5:02 am #845371Jorge
I am using GP Social share and would like to know how can I deactivate it from just one post. Can you provide a code for simple CSS, please?
I have asked support but it seems that they do not answer. There is also another threat which has not been answered in three months…

i would deactivate the Hook in the plugin settings.
On the plugins wp page you will find a shortcode that can be used instead.
Then use the Hook Element to add it to posts and exclude the one you don’t want it on:
