It’s great to have access to such a great repository of WordPress plugins, but sometimes a great plugin is just, too much for a smaller task of function. Like social media buttons, they have in fact a very simple function and most buttons require only a few rows of code. Social media buttons
If a complex plugin doesn’t provide the specific function I need, it becomes time to think about a custom solution. During the last year I used several plugins or functions to show social media buttons on this blog site. At last I used the DiggDigg plugin, a plugin that offers a great floating bar like they use on Mashable. It’s really a great plugin, but you can’t customize the plugin’s behavior so much.
