mashable sharing widget

The great social media blog Mashable is always an inspiration in whatever they do. I came across a great wordpress plugin created by inspiredmagz and they named it as mashable social bar. We downloaded their plugin and converted it to a blogger compatible form. We also managed to solve its compatibility issues for IE and further strengthened its HTML structure. This widget can now be used in every blogspot blog just with an extremely easy installation step. As you can see this widget contains links to your Facebook Fan page, Google+ page and recommendation button, twitter follow button, RSS and LinkedIn links and most importantly an attractive subscription form that will further increase the number of your Email subscribers. The conversion didn't took me very long and I am pleased to present it to all of you. Kindly see a demo first:

Make these important changes:

  • Replace bloggertricks with your Facebook username
  • Replace mybloggertricks with your twitter username
  • Replace tntbystc with your Feedburner title. Your Feedburner title is the word added at the end of your Feedburner link. Example: http://feeds.feedburner.com/tntbystc
  • Replace http://feeds.feedburner.com/tntbystc with your feedburner  link.
  • Replace LINKEDIN PROFILE LINK with your Linkedin profile link
  • Replace http://plus.google.com/44448117245314564536 with your Google Plus profile link

       5.   Hit save and you are all done!

Visit your blogs to see it working just perfectly. :)

Further Customization

I have set the width of the widget to 300px. If in case your sidebar is small or big, you may then have to adjust the two width values in brown highlight color. The first will set the width of the entire container and the second value will set the width of the subscription input box.

Credits

You are most welcomed to share this widget with your readers. You will have to give credits to MBT blog by attaching a link back to this post. You may also give credits to the author for the wordpress version of this sharing plugin.

You can also check 7 other sharing widgets with different look and style:

Do let me know if you needed any help. I am sure this new sharing widget will add a new life to your blogs. Peace and blessings pals! :)
