Share your WordPress page URL on social networking website by using a simple function

Share your WordPress post on facebook & other social networking website.

 

If you want to share your WordPress page URL on social networking website, it’s very simple to do.

Just place this function in your functions.php file, and call the function where do you want it to show.

 

[php]
<?php

function GetShareLinks() {

/* Your current page URL */
$URI = get_permalink();

/* The js script used for goolge plus share button */
$sharestring ='<script type="text/javascript" src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script>’;

$sharestring .='<a href="https://pinterest.com/scriptarticle/" target="_blank"><img width="16" height="16" alt="Follow Me on Pinterest" src="http://passets-lt.pinterest.com/images/about/buttons/small-p-button.png"></a>
<a href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=’.$URI.’"><img src="’.get_bloginfo(‘template_url’).’/images/facebook.jpg" alt="" /></a>
<a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=’.$URI.’"><img src="’.get_bloginfo(‘template_url’).’/images/twitter.jpg" alt="" /></a>
<a href="http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=’.$URI.’"><img src="’.get_bloginfo(‘template_url’).’/images/in.jpg" alt="" /></a>
<g:plusone count="false" size="small"></g:plusone>’;

return $sharestring;

}

?>
[/php]

 

You can also use this function in other website (non WordPress) site, you have to just replace the get_permalink() function by current page URL and update the social icons images path.
