Will you tell me, which social sharing plugin you use yourself here on your site? thx in advance Reply Karlo August 22, 2013 at 6:31 am Hi derHu, Social buttons on top of our post pages are called directly from our theme files so we don’t have to use any of the plugins. For Facebook button you may check their Developers page for more information. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ Reply derHu August 22, 2013 at 12:31 pm Hi, Karlo Thx for your prompt reply 🙂 Reply Paul Ramsden September 3, 2013 at 9:07 pm Thanks Karlo.
