    I downloaded this plugin but as soon as this plugin was active my site responded with a 502 bad gateway so somewhere there is an error in the .php
    Too bad, liked it… But whenever I deactivate the plugin my error 502 bad gateway is gone also.

    Kind regards, Claudia

    Are you absolutely sure about this? It seems quite unlikely that the plugin could cause this.

    Could you try activate the plugin again and see if you can re-produce? If so you can provide more details by using the specific contact form.

    I like this plugin, but is there any way to change where the icons are displayed? THey are showing up at the bottom of the page and I’d like them to be at the top, under the title. Thanks very much.

      You have to use either widgets, shortcodes, or custom code if you wish to move the icons to specific places.

    I can’t get the YouTube icon to show up. Any ideas? Thanks!

      YouTube is only available as a “following” network while you are probably looking at the sharing icons.

    Is there a way to have the social media icons NOT show on one certain page? We have an application where visitors pay an application fee, then are transported to a Thank You page with the download link for the application. I would like the social media sharing to not be allowed on that one page only. Thanks!

      Not yet but this will be possible in the next version, using custom fields. I intend to release it either this or next weekend.

    Nice. Simple and clean setup of icons. Are you adding Pinterest to the icon group sometime soon?

    First, Id like to say thank you for your awesome plug-in. Your work is very much appreciated :)

    I was wondering if you were going to create an Instagram icon in the near future ?

    I like this plugin a lot and thank you for sharing it. I am wandering does this plugin able to show up the sharing icons on the home page vertically on the left side? I have been trying to figuring it out for a while.

      You can do that by using custom markup + css, positioning it based on your theme.

    Hi I have just downloaded this plugin and entered my social media details but the icons do not show up on my website. What am I doing wrong? Plugin is activated.

      You have to either activate automatic appending or use the widgets or shortcodes to make the buttons appear.

      By the way it’s best if you stick to the support forums on for the plugin, these comments are not the right place to report problems.
