Slick Social Share Buttons

[faqlist faq_topic="slick-social-share-buttons" limit="-1"]


  • I have a problem with pin button- it’s not pinning anything.The big box from pininterest appears and it asking you what board you want to pin.After I’ve press red button “pin it” it’s not pinning.


    • try the other version of the button

  • Got it — checking the ‘default skin’ option fixed it.

  • I have just installed this plugin — it’s the first one I’ve found that seems to work well with Pinterest. BUT… I have one problem. If I set the Pinterest option to featured image, the Pin It icon appears. If I set it to Preview Image, the icon disappears! Any thoughts on why this would happen or how I can fix it?

    Many thanks!


  • Hi,

    Trying to get this to work with a tumblr feed – I am asked to put a shortcode in the custom are – no idea how to do this – searches on Google and Tumblr have proved fruitless.

    Any suggestions, please?



    • Hi,

      You will need to create a shortcode that generates the tumblr feed output if one isnt already available as a plugin

  • I just updated the plugin and lost a bunch of style settings. Can someone check out my implementation and let me know how to better align the list under the share button, decrease the indent to not cutoff the counts, and remove the bullets? Check out the weirdness on this page: Thanks in advance.

    • Hi,

      You need to add some styles for the button panel. Either use the default CSS file by checking the “default skin” option in the plugin settings or add your own styles to your theme’s style sheet

      • Wow, that was stupidly easy to fix after I reset the style to the default skin. Thanks for this great plugin!

  • great plugin indeed! Only, it doesn’t show the same amount of likes and tweets as my previous social media plugin (AddThis). Are they conflicting with each other? It’s quite annoying as it looks as if I didn’t get any likes at all yet…

    • Hi,

      The buttons and counts are generated by the social network APIs. The counts are specific to a particular URL so if you have changed the URLs at all it would show zero

      • Well that’s the thing – one plugin shows a different count, on the same page, as the other. So I didn’t change any URLs, check out this page (Addthis is at the bottom):

        • It looks like something in the way the theme is coded is interfering with the standard URL that should be available when the buttons are generated. Sometimes a custom query that isnt reset can cause this kind of problem since the slick social share buttons are generated outside the standard wordpress content loop.

          I have emailed you a modified file which may help correct the problem

  • Hi threre. I’ve been trying to install on my site. When I try to activate, it automatically gets redirected to the home page of my website and does not activate. Any ideas how to solve this?

    • Hi,

      Never comes across the problem before with the plugin. If you have access to your server logs check if any php errors are occuring

  • I am attempting to use the slide option for the slick social share buttons plugin but the tab isn’t visible on the site…. any ideas?

    • Hi,

      Check the FAQ section and previous comments for more info and possible solutions.

  • Hi there i am trying to add the plugin to my site. when i did and entered my facebook id it is displaying the wrong like information, i have tried it on a few of my sites and am having the same issue when i use the facebook debug page i get the missing og:title information is there a fix for this? do i need to add something to my header to get it to work. I would appreciate your help if possible and a nice donation to follow cheers.

    • Hi,

      Try using the facebook iFrame button. You shouldnt have to enter an ID to get this to work

  • Hi Lee, cheers for building a great plugin! Just one small issue which is baffling me …it appears on all pages (including custom post types) except for one page where I have a template which pulls in a list of a custom post type and I can’t get it to display here. Had a look at the source and it’s not generating the code in the footer. The only difference between this and the standard page templates is I am using query_posts() to spit out the list under the main page content. Any ideas?

    • Make sure the wp_footer() function is in the bottom of the page

      • Yes it does, it uses the same get_footer() call and wp_footer() as the rest of the site. What else can I try?

  • Hello, great plug-in, unfortunately I can’t use it because it overrides the og:description tag and doesn’t let me use the meta data the way I need to. Is there any way to make this so that it doesn’t override the open graph data?

    • Hi,

      You can disable the opengraph tags via the plugin options page
