Easily Add Social Sharing Icons To Blogger Posts

Allow users to share your blog posts on popular social networks such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and Email with this quick loading, social sharing widget. It uses 'Font Awesome', allowing you to easily customize the icons using pure css.



Step 1. Adding Font Awesome

Just below the opening <head> tag in your template add the following code.

<link href='//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>

Step 2. Social Sharing Icons


Find the <data:post.body/> tag (usually the second one) in your template and add the following code right below it.

<!-- Social Sharing Icons -->
<!-- Code by: helparchive.blogspot.com -->
<div id='share-btns'>
<!-- CSS -->
<style>
#share-btns img {float: left; width: 60px; margin-right: 10px}
#share-btns ul {list-style-type: none;}
#share-btns ul li {display: inline-block; padding: 3px 5px 0 1px;}
</style>

<img src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-BLgbb6up_zY/U_t74dcn6EI/AAAAAAAADU8/lvYsGSZKhKY/s1600'/>

<ul class='post-sharing-menu'>
<!-- Google Plus -->
<li class='share-gpl'>
 <a expr:href='&quot;https://plus.google.com/share?url=&quot; + data:post.url + &quot;&amp;t=&quot; + data:post.title' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Share on Google +'>
   <i class='fa fa-google-plus'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Facebook -->
<li class='share-fbk'>
 <a expr:href='&quot;http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=&quot; + data:post.url + &quot;&amp;media=&quot; + data:post.thumbnailUrl + &quot;&amp;title=&quot; + data:post.title' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Share on Facebook'>
   <i class='fa fa-facebook'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Twitter -->
<li class='share-twt'>
 <a expr:href='&quot;http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=&quot; + data:post.title + &quot;&amp;url=&quot; + data:post.url' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Share on Twitter'>
   <i class='fa fa-twitter'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Pinterest -->
<li class='share-pnt' >
 <a expr:href='&quot;http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=&quot; + data:post.url + &quot;&amp;media=&quot; + data:post.thumbnailUrl + &quot;&amp;description=&quot; + data:post.title' target='_blank' title='Pin It !'>
   <i class='fa fa-pinterest'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Linkedin -->
<li class='share-lkd'>
 <a expr:href='&quot;http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=&quot; + data:post.url + &quot;&amp;title=&quot; + data:post.title' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Share on Linkedin'>
   <i class='fa fa-linkedin'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Print -->
<li class='share-prn'>
 <a expr:href='&quot;http://www.printfriendly.com/print/v2?url=&quot; + data:post.url' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Create PDF And Print Friendly !'>
   <i class='fa fa-print'></i>
 </a>
</li>
<!-- Email -->
<li class='share-eml'>
 <a href='mailto:?Subject=ENTER_SUBJECT_HERE&amp;Body=Hey! Check out this article...' rel='nofollow' target='_blank' title='Email This'>
   <i class='fa fa-envelope-o'></i>
 </a>
</li>
</ul>
</div>

That's it. The best thing about this widget is that there's no JavaScript used. You can also customize the icons using CSS only. Here are few customizations:

Original Colors


<!-- CSS -->
#share-btns ul li {display: inline-block; width: 30px; text-align: center;}
#share-btns ul li a {color:white;}
.share-gpl {background: #E13728;}
.share-fbk {background: #4A6EA9;}
.share-twt {background: #2DAAE1;}
.share-pnt {background: #CB1F26;}
.share-lkd {background: #0092C1;}
.share-prn {background: #A29F9F;}
.share-eml {background: #7CB09F;}

Rounded Icons in DarkSeaGreen


<!-- CSS -->
#share-btns ul li {display: inline-block; background: darkseagreen; text-align: center; width: 30px; border-radius: 50%;}
#share-btns ul li a {color:white; text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgb(38, 40, 39);}

Custom Icons

You can use your own icons simply by replacing the code "<i class='fa fa-...'></i>" with the URL <img src='URL_HERE'/> of the image you would like to use.

Change Thumbnail Size for Blogger Images, Popular Posts Widget

Blogger, by default assigns a 72 x 72 pixel size for thumbnails generated from your post images. You may desire to change the image thumbnail size on the Popular posts widget or even thumbnails displayed on homepage, generated from blog posts.

In your template, you'll find a couple of instances of the
"<img expr:src='data:post.thumbnailUrl'/>" tag . Using this tag, you can pick up the first image from a post and generate its thumbnail. By assigning a class/id to this tag and using a simple jquery code, we can define a custom thumbnail size for it.

Before you begin, make sure you have jquery installed in your template. If not, copy the latest version from below and paste it above the closing head tag </head>.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

Custom thumbnail Size for Post Images


As mentioned in the begening, a 72 x 72 pixel size thumbnail from post image can be created using the tag:
<img expr:src='data:post.thumbnailUrl'/>

1. To the relevant image tag, simply add a class or id to the tag like this:
<img class="post-thumb" expr:src='data:post.thumbnailUrl'/>

2. Just above the closing head tag </head> in your template, paste the code below.

<script type="text/javascript">
 $(document).ready(function() {$('.post-thumb').attr('src', function(i, src) {return src.replace( 's72-c', 's120-c' );});});
<!-- helparchive.blogspot.com -->
</script>

3. The "120" is your new thumbnail size. You can increase or decrease the thumbnail width by changing the "120" to any other number. Lastly, ".post-thumb" is the class you have assigned to your images.

Changing thumbnail Size In Popular Posts Widget


Changing the thumbnail size for Popular Post images is simple. Just paste the code below just above closing head tag </head> in your template.

<script type="text/javascript">
 $(document).ready(function() {$('.PopularPosts img').attr('width', '100%').attr('height', 'auto').attr('src', function(i, src) {return src.replace( 's72-c', 's120-c' );});});
<!-- helparchive.blogspot.com -->
</script>

Change "120" to any other number to set the desired size for popular posts thumbnail images.

Please give proper credit if you wish to cover this post on your blog.
