It’s only been a year (and change) since I last released a new version of Local Like And Share so it seems like high time it received some attention!
The title of this post comes from the fact that I just (well, a couple of weeks back, now) added shortcode functionality to my Post Notif plugin. So, I figured it was only fitting to do the same for Local Like And Share!
I appreciate the patience of those of you who, over time, have requested the ability to drop a likeor share button directly into a post’s content, rather than being confined to the corners (i.e., top-left, top-right, bottom-left, and bottom-right), outside of the content itself. Additionally, there have been inquiries made by those looking for a (clean) way to add the buttons to pages. Now you can do some, all, or none of this!
The shortcodes are purely supplementary to the existing functionality. So, for example, you could use the shortcode to add a like button to a specific page, or set of pages, in addition to however you use like buttons currently. Or you could turn off the existing functionality and drop the share button shortcode into your posts, midway through. Of course, you could ignore the shortcode functionality entirely; if you are content with how things work already, do nothing and Local Like And Share will continue to work as it has to this point.
There you have it; I hope this increased versatility proves useful for you!
Please let me know if you notice anything strange or that seems like a bug…errr..undocumented feature. 🙂 And if you are willing to provide some or all of a translation, of the Local Like And Share’s strings, into your native language, please do get in touch.
