Adding sharing buttons below post titles or at post footer are best locations to increase your social shares and social media referral traffic.

JSC Horizontal Sharing Bar by default includes the following 10 popular share buttons:

  1. Facebook

  3. Twitter
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Pinterest
  6. StumbleUpon

The following features makes it the most advanced sharing plugin:

  • Mobile responsive,
  • SEO friendly,
  • Lightweight & Lightening fast,
  • Animated number counter on scroll,
  • Natural in design
  • Customizable
  • Expand/Collapse option

We have both Horizontal and Vertical Sharing bars in stake. Today we will learn how to install the Horizontal Jumbo Sharing bar in your Wordpress themes and later in our next tutorial we will also discuss how to install the vertical jumbo sharing bar in WordPress.

Lets get to work now!

Install Horizontal Jumbo Sharing bar in WordPress

Adding plugins in WordPress themes often require the use of hooks i.e. Actions and Filters. If you are using Genesis or Thesis frameworks then you can easily add the JSC plugin in any location you want but to make sure we keep the installation steps as simple as possible, I will share a standard method that will work on all frameworks.

NOTE:
Please Keep your FileZilla FTP connected, you may need it to restore function.php file if in case something goes wrong.

1. Go to your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Editor

2. Choose the stylesheet file i.e. style.css and paste the following CSS code at the bottom of style.css
