Custom Social Share Button

+1 vote
1,457 views

While working with QueryHome we were looking how we can have custom share button for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ with the following key target in our mind -

  • The social share button should be flexible enough to have our own design.
  • There should no load of external JS files for your custom share button, to avoid the delay in page loading.
  • Should be Easy for integration.
  • Custom social share button gives an option to share the dynamic contents.(avoid Open graph protocols)

Sample Buttons (you can change them as per your need)

p[url]=<?php echo urlencode($share_url);?>&amp;
p[images][0]=<?php echo $image_url;?>" 
onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href, '', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,height=400,width=600'); 
return false;"><img src="your custom facebook button" alt="Facebook Custom Image"/></a>
