The Social Sidebar allows you to deploy a global set of links on your website using a number of different styles and options for extreme customizability. Everything from the position of the sidebar, colors, shadows, label styles, link shapes, you name it, it’s in there and if it’s not in there, we have a handy CSS editor design to help you go even further than the options.

Website integration is automatic with options for page and post inclusion and exclusion. Additionally, a manual mode is offered for better theme handling (using either a shortcode or PHP function call).

With the sidebar positioning being anywhere from fixed on the page to absolutely positioned, we also have mobile options to better handle devices. Choose to show or hide the sidebar or turn the links into usable buttons so your mobile users still get the full effect. Detection can be handled through WordPress or via a customized media query.

Links come in two modes: Regular and Sharing. Share links come in standard share mode or using the AddThis.com API. No signups are required, but if you do, you can add your publisher ID for AddThis.com to track stats.

Links can be highly customized, using built-in Font Awesome icons or if you can’t find the icon you need, you can upload an image to use instead. Need a popup window? No problem. Custom per-link colors? We gotcha covered.

This plugin is great for getting global links onto your site and getting your visitors attention.
