Let your visitors make your site popular by sharing your pages thanks to colorfull and attractiv social buttons.
Set nice fixed social buttons on right side.
This plugin will add fixed social buttons on top right side :
twitter, facebook, myspace, reddit, delicious, technorati, digg, linkedin, flickr and rss feed buttons.
1. Extract fixed-social-buttons.zip in the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Go to **Settings** and then **Easy Buttons** to configure the plugin.
Since version 126.96.36.199, your wordpress theme must have the function in the file footer.php
Most of themes already call this function. If not, buttons don’t appear : you have to insert it yourself.
How to insert this function?
Edit the footer.php file here : /wp-admin/theme-editor.php
and insert before
If the zip file is named « fixed-social-buttons.X.X.zip » (because of file version), you have to rename it « fixed-social-buttons.zip » before extracting it in order to have the plugin directory named « fixed-social-buttons ».

hi, i am using your great plugin in my blog http://www.crazybulb.com
I have a problem though, I use different themes for my mobile users and desktop users. I don’t want to show fixed social buttons on my mobile themes.. plz help me rectifying this issue…
When changing to any page, the buttons turn to code text above in the respective page. How can I Fix this?
Thanks for plugin,
I’d also love to see the addition of an email button. Very useful.
Very nice plugin – I have tested it on my test-blog and I want to set it live if Google would be added..
On Wordpress the Plugin-Version is at 188.8.131.52 and here at 184.108.40.206..!?
Google would be very interesting… (bookmarks)… or buzz!
Kind regards from germany
Indeed, an email button would be great.
I love this plugin, very useful and something I’ve been waiting for a long time.
I need help in making the vertical top function to lower just a few px. How would you do this?
My rss button isn’t working. Do I have to do something?? I click it and it just reloads my blog.
What about a code snipet to insert it in any other place of the site?
Hi there, first of all, we LOVE your plugin. May we suggest three improvements? 1) Facebook needs to have two buttons – one for Sharing and another for Joining as a fan. 2) There should be an option to make the list of buttons bigger too. 3) The ability to reorder the buttons would be really nice. Thank you!!!! You rock!!!!!
at the moment i am using this plugin on my blog, it’s very useful. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs to take visitors for social networks accounts.
this is to developer of the plugin: please add much more icons to next version of the plugin. i am hoping to see last.fm, tumblr etc. icons.
As a lot of people are led to my home page rather than to a post’s page, I think an option to add these buttons to the bottom of each post would be nice and not having to know code to do it. Also, I could not find the ability to create an optional message that would be added when a person hits the share button. This would be a nice option. I did not see FriendFeed either.
As a reader can hit the share button and it not go to the exact post’s page, if hit from the homepage, is why I have currently taken this plug in out. People that read the first post on my homepage thought they were sharing that post, but if I added a new post the people would not be taken to that original post, instead they would see a new post on my homepage. Please advice if I am missing anything here. PS: I do not know code!
PS With all the possibilities for buttons and the requests you’re getting, it’ll probably need a scroller before long! I love this plugin, it’s a standard on all my blogs. One of the first things I install after the comments/texteditors ;-p Any plans on possibly making it where users can add their own buttons so you don’t have to?
Please add Google Buzz button!! NIce plug in.. 5 Stars!! Thanks
Hi, is it possible to hide the social buttons or change it’s position in wptouch for iphone rendering? At top right it is overlapping some crucial function of the mobile theme and I would like to correct this.
Hi, just found the solution!
At the WPtouch setup, check “Enable WPtouch Restricted Mode”.
This will disable any other plugins. Worked for me
Simple suggestion, add examples to the profile options. I was typing in the entire URL and hence getting an error. Though yours is simpler its not the wp standard. Also give an option to go to all the site profiles such as LinkedIn profile instead of just sharing the page on LinkedIn. BTW LI isn’t working for me at all but that’s not my focus so no biggie.
I have the word ‘button’ over all my buttons… what’s the deal?
I have installed and activated Fixed Social Plugin. Absolutely love it, but I’m having a bit of an issue with Twitter. I have entered my Twitter URL on the settings page. However, when Twitter is selected, it is directed to a page that says « Sorry that page doesn’t exist », but selecting « home » on that same page will direct to my Twitter page. I’m a novice- please tell me what I’m doing wrong.
Fixed social was working fine at top right going vertical then just stopped showing all of a sudden? Please check this out for me at Wezeemall.info/blog…I still have it as ACTIVE.
Guys, Love the fixed social buttons. It worked originally, now it does not want to work, Any clue why it does not show on my home page? Its activated and worked before. now it does not… email@example.com
Since I updated to the latest version the buttons disappeared from my site. Any ideas?
AWESOME plugin. Question: I typed in my twitter name, but now I want to allow users to click on that button and go to their own twitter to share. But the page will not save my changes after I erase my twitter name. Any ideas? Thanks!
Loane : try to insert a blank in the twitter line
@ igg and dtbsz
Same thing happened to me…so, I had to manually delete the plugin folder from within my cpanel then uploaded the latest version from this page using the my WordPress Admin .zip plugin uploader and the buttons showed up again.
Can anyone help me… When I use the standard wordpress them the plugin works fine…. but with my custom theme you can’t see it?! anyone know why????
The same here, I tried removing the social buttons and re installing and nothing. It used to work fine. I am also using a theme and suddently I think i either updated wordpress of the the social buttons and it stopped working. Help..
If buttons don’t appear any more you have to follow the FAQ
I tried some of the bookmarking plugins but most of them don’t match my theme. Thanks that this bookmarking plugin works well
Thanks for sharing it. I would recommend this to all my readers.

Is there a way that you could add a blogger icon button to link to a blogger profile?
Hi! Just a comment to say that I’ve upgraded my WP to version 3.0 and the plugin works fine! Fully compatible. Thanks
