4What design & animation do you want to give your icons?

A good & well-fitting design is not only nice to look at, but it increases chances that people will subscribe and/or share your site with friends:

  • It comes across as more professional and gives your site more “credit”
  • A smart automatic animation can make your visitors aware of your icons in an unintrusive manner

The icons have been compressed by Shortpixel.com for faster loading of your site. Thank you Shortpixel!

5Do you want to display "counts" next to your icons?

It’s a psychological fact that people like to follow other people (as explained well in Robert Cialdini’s book “Influence”), so when they see that your site has already a good number of Facebook likes, it’s more likely that they will subscribe/like/share your site than if it had 0.

Therefore, you can select to display the count next to your main icons, which will look like this:

Of course, if you start at 0, you shoot yourself in the foot with that. So we suggest that you only turn this feature on once you have a good number of followers/likes/shares (min. of 20 – no worries if it’s not too many, it should just not be 0). New: In the Premium Plugin you can define a threshold (min. number of counts) when it will automatically switch to showing the counts. Go Premium.

Enough waffling. So do you want to display counts?

6Any other wishes for your main icons?

New: The Premium Plugin gives several more alignment options:

Go premium now or learn more.

New window

If a user clicks on your icons, do you want to open the page in a new window?

Sticky icons

Make icons stick?

If you select «Yes» here, then the icons which you placed via widget or shortcode will still be visible on the screen as user scrolls down your page, i.e. they will stick at the top.

This is not to be confused with making the icons permanently placed in the same position, which is possible in the Premium Plugin.

Sharing texts & pictures?

On the pages where you edit your posts/pages, you’ll see a (new) section where you can define which pictures & text should be shared. This extra section is displayed on the following:

Note: This feature is currently only available in the Premium Plugin. Go premium now or learn more.

Mouseover text

Note: Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
