Introduction

You may have seen the latest post for my jQuery plugin I packaged it up as a one zip file installation file for wordpress.  Social Sidebar is just a very simple plugin to show Social Media buttons in a non-obtrusive manner on the side of your website.

Installation

1) Download the plugin using the link below.

Download here

2) After installing the plugin through the WordPress plugin page, activate it and you will find a menu under the settings menu to edit ‘Social Sidebar’

3) Edit the settings and specify custom images if you don’t want to use the defaults.

4) You’re done, open your site and post a link back to show us how it looks.

You can view the sample on the right hand side of the pop out buttons and a screen shot of the admin section is included below.

This plugin can also be found in the WordPress plugin repository at

    Hey there. Nice plugin and thanks.
    One point I might make is that if you put the plugin files in a folder within a .zip file, wordpress can’t install and gives a no header error. For the less tech savvy, this might be a bit confusing (I had to work it out too :) )

  2. admin says:

    @Steve Thanks, for anyone who was having this trouble I have updated the plugin to install automatically, sorry for any inconvenience.

    some suggestions:
    -more option to add more social sites
    -how to put the images at the left rather than right
    -putting/adjusting spaces between the images

    It seems to work with Firefox and Chrome but not Explorer. How can I fix this?

  14. I really like your plug-in, it's easy to use but would be nice if there were some pre-made graphics for other social sites like MySpace, BeBo, Friendster, Hi5, etc… sense there are so many of these out there I know it would be a pain… or just have an easy way to tell how big the default buttons are where we can design our own buttons so everything is uniform.

Hi Mark, I have checked out your site and seen that you currently have no usernames set for your social networks.

Please login to wordpress options and click on Social Sidebar under the settings menu.

Click on the second tab and fill out some basic settings and the default icons should load if no images are supplied.

Thanks,
Thomas

Hi Cheryl, thanks for the lovely comment. I am currently working on a feature to position the sidebar on the left hand side.
