How to Customize Your Share Buttons on the AMP for WP Plugin

We are excited to announce our Share Buttons are integrated with the AMP for WP plugin!

WordPress users that have activated the AMP for WP plugin will automatically have our Inline Share Buttons installed on their site so that no initial setup is required.

The default option includes five share buttons using our Smart Sorting feature. This feature works by detecting which social networks a user has most recently and most frequently interacted with and displays those social networks to that user. For example, a user who shares frequently to LinkedIn will see the LinkedIn button, but a user who doesn’t have a LinkedIn account and has never used LinkedIn will not see that service recommended to them.

These default share buttons cannot be modified and analytics data will not be available. However, you can replace the default share buttons with your own to have access to analytics data and customization options.

How to Customize Your Share Buttons

To customize your share buttons, create a free account at AddThis.com, then activate the Inline Share Buttons. Once your buttons are activated, replace the default Pub ID and Tool ID with your personalized IDs.

You can find the Pub ID for your account under Profile Settings, General, then ID.
