Social Sharing icons under all posts

The following article will help you get a social sharing widget under each blog post as I have in my blog.

It consists of four parts of template Editing :-
  1. Adding CSS.
  2. Adding XML.
First Backup your template.

Adding CSS
  • Goto Dashboard > Template > Customise > Advanced > Add CSS
  • Paste the following code in the appearing box,
    .sharebutton{
    padding:10px;
    background-color:transparent;
    border-radius:5px;
    box-shadow:0px 0px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
    border-top:5px solid black;
    }
    .share, .share:hover{
    cursor:pointer;
    padding:5px 10px;
    box-shadow:0px 0px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
    color:black;
    text-decoration:none;
    }
    .link_share{
    width:100%;padding-bottom:3px;border:3px solid transparent;;border-radius:2px;
     -webkit-transition-duration: 1s;
      -moz-transition-duration: 1s;
      -o-transition-duration: 1s;
      -ms-transition-duration: 1s;
      -goog-ms-transition-duration: 1s;
      transition-duration: 1s;
    }
    .link_share:focus{
    border-bottom:3px solid black;
     -webkit-transition-duration: 1s;
      -moz-transition-duration: 1s;
      -o-transition-duration: 1s;
      -ms-transition-duration: 1s;
      -goog-ms-transition-duration: 1s;
      transition-duration: 1s;
    }
Adding XML
  • Press Ctrl + F and Find <b:if cond='data:post.hasJumpLink'>
  • The code around it will look like,
    <b:if cond='data:post.hasJumpLink'>
    <div class='jump-link'>
    <a expr:href='data:post.url' expr:title='data:post.title'><data:post.jumpText/></a>
    </div>
    </b:if>
  • Right after that place the below code,
    <p class='sharebutton'><b>Share this post</b><br/><br/>

    <span class='post-icons'>
    <a expr:href='&quot;http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=&quot; + data:post.url + &quot;&amp;title=&quot; + data:post.title' target='_blank' title='Add To Facebook'><img alt='Add To Facebook' border='0' class='icon-action' height='36' src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_vLeiVavkV_M/SnleIlLdGwI/AAAAAAAABd8/RfHnWIGGMEY/s200/facebook.png' width='36'/></a>
    <a expr:href='&quot;https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?button_hashtag=howtoblog&amp;text=&quot; + data:post.url' target='_blank' title='Tweet this'><img border='0' class='icon-action' height='36' src='https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ucOlsxvAWoE/UCDHPcOSvDI/AAAAAAAAAC4/CK71lyjuWPw/s512/Twitter%2520Icon.png' width='36'/></a>
    <br/><br/>
    <krish style='width:100%;font-weight:bold;font-style:italic;'>Share Link : <input class='link_share' expr:value='data:post.url' onfocus='this.select()' type='text'/></krish>
    </span>

    <font size='2'>Click <a href='http://howtoblog.krishnainfotron.com/2012/08/social-book-marking-buttons-in-all.html'>here</a> for <b>Social sharing icons V2</b>.</font>
    </p><br/>
After completing these, click on "Save Template" and view your blog. You should see the social sharing icons appearing on the template.
