SexyBookmarks WordPress Plugin Review

by Simrandeep Singh on May 13, 2009

One reason why I love WordPress is that you can customize it to the way you want. There are many ways to integrate social media buttons to your WordPress blog. Some methods are by editing your theme file and some methods are by using WordPress plugins. If you remember last month I shared a tutorial for blogger users to add sexy bookmarks to their blogs. In this post I’m going to share similar buttons for WordPress users.

WordPress users can add those buttons by using SexyBookmarks WordPress plugin. This plugin adds a bar of social media and social bookmark buttons in your post content area. You can decide to show it above the content or at the bottom of the post content. Like many other WordPress plugins, this plugin also provide you the feature to choose the buttons that you want to show in your content.

When a visitor hover his mouse over any of the buttons, the button pops up and the visitor can click on the button to share the content to that particular social site.

The plugin provide you the option to show it below or above the post content but you can also add it to any other place manually using the following code:

<?php if(function_exists('selfserv_shareaholic')) { selfserv_shareaholic(); } ?>

I love this plugin… Really Sexy… The CSS can also be customized in the settings page to increase the visibility of the icons. Cool…

a very nice plugin. I like the way they jump up when you hover over them. I think I’m going to try it. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi again,

I have added a few and they are all showing underneath each other, am I missing something here?


Simran May 14, 2009 at 12:26 pm

Did you manually insert the code ?


George Serradinho May 14, 2009 at 12:38 pm

If I add the code manually in the post then it shows up underneath each other. If I add it via the auto then it does the same.

If I add it manually above the post then it shows right. I will add it above the post and in the post so that you can see the effect. Pls visit my site and have a look at one of my posts.

Any ideas?


Simran May 14, 2009 at 1:13 pm

Its looking great above the post title. It don’t have any option to show up the icons underneath each other. There may be problem in your template coding. I suggest keep it above the post title. If I found the solution, I will surely contact you :)


George Serradinho May 14, 2009 at 1:19 pm

Thanks Simran, I will keep it above the post for now.

Great plugin this is. Downloaded to use at the initial days of blogging..but i a inbuilt bookmarks now.


Gagan May 14, 2009 at 4:09 pm

Hey Simran,I personally do not like this bookmarks. Its better to put simple icons that are eye catching, what say ? :(


Simran May 14, 2009 at 4:15 pm

@ Gagan

These icons are also eye catching. I think you didn’t like its Sharing is Sexy text. This plugin has option to remove that also. You can use it in simple way too :)

I’ve downloaded this plugin and although they mentioned that they have worked on the performance issue side, I still see it slowing down my pages. Now, I’ve read on multiple sites that by loading the code on the footer the site actually loads faster, but how do I do this if this is an automatic process?
