YooSocial Plugin Syntax

Simply use {yoosocial} in your article text. Social bookmarks will then be displayed using parameters you defined.

How YooSocial prevents social bookmarks from being displayed?

Let's assume you have 5 article categories, whose ids are 1,2,3,4 and 5. In order to display social bookmarks for articles of categories 1, 2 and 3, you should fill in the Categories configuration field with value 4,5.

How can I get the same look as in your demo site?

  1. Show Google +1, Facebook Like, LinkedIn buttons, hide others.
  2. Set Google +1 button size to Tall
