How to use it
Activate the plugin through the plugin page, there no need to do anything else. Below is a link to the YouTube video on how to use the plugin –
Position of the “Share” button can be done according to your liking by changing the “style.css” file in the WordPress editor. For example, add the the following code to “style.css”, and change left padding to your liking.
Like that you can change other CSS values to position the button according to your liking. This happens because sometimes I have to work around the WordPress core, and modifying the theme may not be the ideal solution. It works, I have tested it many times from my end, but if any problems arise I am available for support.
