Bootstrap Share Buttons

An often overlooked method of implementing social sharing buttons (without counters) on your site. Super lightweight without any external loaded resources, JavaScript, or CSS. Fully customisable using CSS and WordPress filters.

The social buttons are designed to work on sites already running a Bootstrap theme with FontAwesome icons. The plugin does not automatically load any JavaScript or CSS resources.

If you don't want to use Bootstrap or FontAwesome, you can still use this plugin by providing your own CSS or by using WordPress filters to change the button and icon classes.

composer require bostondv/bootstrap-share-buttons
