Introduction

Social Multi Share, Social Web, Social Share

Social Media platforms (Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+, Whatsapp, Mix, LINE, Telegram, Viber, Pocket, Facebook Messenger, vKontakte, SMS, Reddit) are a growing driver for traffic to your blog and integrated responsive Social Media sharing buttons are facilitating community engagement and promotion. But often integrating Social Sharing buttons on your website can break your website's performance (because they load a remotely hosted script) and look-and-feel. Often you are limited as to where these Social sharing buttons are placed on your blog or website. And what are those cookies for that they place? Who asked them to track your visitors? What are they doing with that data?

  • Favourite
  • Report

Time to take control again over your website and protect your visitors!

This Joomla! content plugin integrates the open source js-Socials script seamlessly into your web pages. The script itself is only 10K big and because it is installed locally it can be cached and thus is lightning fast!

You get full control on where you want to place the responsive Social sharing buttons: simply by entering the tag {jssocials} anywhere in your blog / article.

Facebook Like integration

New: integrate a Facebook Like share box any where in your content by placing the tag {jssocials fblike}. You can even point the like box to another URL... imagine what that will do for growing your Facebook followers!

New functionality:

you can add parameters to the tag like: {jssocials url="https://the url to be shared" title="a different title to be share" buttonorder="L,F,T}
This enables to you set eg the social sharing buttons on a 'thank you for buying' page where the share url is not the thank you page (default behavior), but e.g. the products page!

Languages:

  • de-DE (partial)
  • en-GB
  • es-ES (partial)
  • it-IT (partial)
  • nl-NL
  • pt-BR
  • sr-RS
  • sr-YU
  • tr-TR (partial)

Don't like the labels on the buttons? Change them via Joomla language file.... It's your site, you decide what to do with it :)
Don't want certain buttons to be shown on tables or phones? No worries, you can configure which buttons(s) should display on what device!

Or you can place them automagically in the top / bottom / read more (or any combination of) positions on your Joomla! articles (configurable per category). And that's not all! you can even choose to have the buttons automagically appear on your featured or category (blog) view: this makes sharing articles from those pages very easy for your visitors.

With one click of the mouse you can change the look-and-feel of all the responsive Social sharing buttons all over your website: all from the plugin's back-end. You want the look and feel to perfectly match your website? No problem: with the custom css option you can make them look (and feel) exactly the way you want them to!

For the marketeers among us: it is even possible to measure (via e.g. Google Analytics) the effectiveness of your buttons / Social platform via built in UTM support!

And that is not all... it's free for you to use on your website!
