WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Using the UW Social Share Plugin

If you have wanted the ability for people to be able to easily share posts from your site to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, or even to easily email a post, the UW Social Share Plugin will give you that option now.

The UW Social Share Plugin is only available by request. To have it turned on for your site, please contact cms-support@doit.wisc.edu. We will enable the plugin for you, and you can then follow these steps to begin using it.

Once the plugin is enabled, you will need to identify which Share options you want to make available. To do this, hover your mouse over the Settings menu option on the left, and click on Social Share.

Once in the plugin settings, place a check mark in the options you want to make active and then click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen.

Now that the settings are applied for the UW Social Share plugin, any posts that you have created as well as you create in the future will have icon options at the bottom of each that will allow users to share that post via the choices you had made earlier.
