Have you, as a web developer, ever wanted a social media bar that you could just drop in somewhere in your wordpress template and have it just work without having to mess with plugins, or strange behavior? Heh, I sure have.
Dealing with the various social media site’s buttons can be fairly maddening to deal with.
Today, https://plus.google.com/107658987396380937151/posts/eiGXKvwZpUp ) in a community that had sharing links to all the social media sites.made a post (
Now, in and of itself, this is pretty cool, but I wanted to take it a step further than that, so using the links they provided, I created a full fledged Social Media Bar.
You can see what the bar looks like here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B25BbZxm93S9OHk0eFhnY1E2d0U/edit?usp=sharing
The bar itself does not use sizing. Instead it relies on padding and margins to size itself. You can increase padding and margins to make it bigger or smaller as you see fit. Moreover, it uses percentage margins to space itself out, so you will need to set that where applicable (default: margin-right: 8.772%; ).
Uses CSS transitions for the hover effect which looks really nice.
Hope you like it! 🙂
P.s. It should be noted that of course it will work outside of wordpress, however, you would need to edit a few obvious variables.
It can be seen live in action on this site, in the footer.
