Hi Ningers! I've come across some clean looking floating social share buttons on SharThis.com and added the script to my network.
If you have some time can you swing by and let me know if they look good with the appearance of my network?
They should be floating to the left, please let me know if they are not functioning properly.
Thanks my friends!
To get the code just go to sharethis.com > get sharing tools > "website" platform > "bars" style > get code...
when prompted to sign up just click the "no thanks" link > then copy and paste the entire code into your Custom Code Box (even the part that goes in your Header)
That's the point , i don't know how come they were displayed that way. In addition i think that they need to be displayed like the buttons on http://mycreationz.com/ so everybody can find the buttons without scrolling down to the end of the page.
Anyone have any idea on how to fix it ?
Did you add the codes to your custom code box (where google adsense goes) in the correct order i.e code #1 before code #2?
If that doesnt fix the problem perhaps you have some ther code affecting this one. You should try to run it on your test network to see what the problem is.
Thanks! I just made images using an image editor (aviary.com) and added my facebook and twitter links.
I just tried to upload in my css box both boxes 1 & 2 of code and it is not reflecting on my sit. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance!
You have to put both boxes 1&2 code in custom code box, not CSS. Be sure to put the code in box 1 on the top of custom code box and the code in box 2 on the bottom of custom code box. Hope this help.
Oh I am grateful! That worked! Love it! I would like to see your site! What is the name?
Ok, here is another question. How do I link my Twitter name and Facebook url in the code to it reflects when viewers click on the icons? Thanks!
Hi Karla, these codes just share contents of your network to FB, Tw,...
I am running an Vietnam Aquaculture Network at www.aquanetviet.org.
May you need to see other tip of "follow social button" from SweetPotato.
You cant link your your accounts because these are just "share" buttons but you can make somethimg similar to the links i have on the right side on my layout that say "like us and follow us"
What I would like to have happen is simple for my network name to reflect when viewers click on the floating bar of social links like this with yours: MyCreationz http://shar.es/tJvfK via @sharethis I see now what my issue is. I did not have my co name in the network area so it was not reflecting on Twitter when I clicked on the Twitter share. Thank you for responding! All set!
Nice! :) im glad everything worked out.. best of luck.
