The Fixed WordPress Social Share Buttons Plugin shows social media icons on any window position you like. Plus: it protects the users privacy because it does not load any data from the social media platform in the users browser. BUT it does show the current number of shares (if available). Nice!
In fact: it’s perfect for all european website owners because only WordPress sends requests to the social media platform (to retrieve the number of shares). No privacy issues here!

Support & Testimonials
- Our products are made in Germany by a German engineer.
- All technical requests regarding the plugin will end up in the engineers email account not in asia or anywhere else.
- You will get support from the guy who wrote the plugin.
- Maybe this are the reasons why our customers are so satisfied.

- This plugin requires: PHP 5.4 running on your webserver (if you don’t know how to update to the latest version, read this)
- A WordPress Version higher or equal 3.7 is needed.
- Unfortunately we cannot check the plugin with every theme out there. For this we have integrated a “Custom CSS” field where you can correct issues.
- The functionality to retrieve the number of shares, likes, tweets and Google +1’s. is already included. If you like to add your own custom icon and retrieve shares from another platform you have to code that on your own. We provide more information about this on our FAQ page.
