Feature Request: Social sharing buttons

Asked on December 9, 2015 in Feature Requests.

Just a feature request for you whilst it’s on my mind. I think there should be a way to add social sharing buttons to posts and pages – I know you can get plugins to do this, but I think it would be a great included feature.

    Hi there,
    This is a feature already included in Layers Pro, which you can learn more about here:

    If you are referring to post-sharing functionality like Facebook Like buttons, it will never be something we include in core mainly because it depends on 3rd party scripts that change too often, or services which already provide their own plugins, such as ShareThis and Add This, and is not customizable from a framework perspective.  In WordPress terms, sharing is plugin territory, so the existing selection of sharing plugins out there is quite good and thorough.  You may also find several child themes that integrate sharing with custom styling.
