FAQ

Find a complete documentation on this official documentation

New 2.0.0 installed, weird stuff happens in my site

Double check that you have saved your plugin settings (Settings > Nobs Share Buttons). Sometimes it happend, simply double check your settings and save.

Since the update to 2.0.0, I don’t have the same counters

Indeed, because of brands like Facebook and Twitter shutting down their counters, a lot of data weren’t accurate anymore. I decided to treat the counters as internal tool for your website. They are now YOUR counters and not facebook’s or twitter’s anymore.
Counterpart is that it now reset. No worries, a way to recover your old counters to add those to the new counters will come soon with 2.1.0 ;p

Since the update to 2.0.0 my activated networks have changed

Yes it can happen sometimes. 2.0.0 is a big update and the core of the plugin changed a lot. It’s typically the only change you will notice, please just update your networks selected to the one you like, it shouldn’t be an issue in the future.

Why “Nobs”? What does that mean?

Ha ha 😁 Good question.
Nobs stand for 3 different things:

  1. “No BS” (AKA No Bullshit),
  2. The humble accronym “Number One Button Set for Social Sharing” (Nobsss 😅 but I truncated it).
  3. It’s also a pun for “knobs”, the actual buttons you find on your shirt or drawers. Thank you Myriam for the funny name.

Twitter counter doesn’t appear OR the count seems to be not exact

Yep, sorry about that, but Twitter decided to shut down counter as well as Facebook.

Use the version 1.4.3 or above of this plugin to get an alternative of the native counter. But, keep in mind that alternative is not 100% precise, but better than nothing, I guess.

The text shared by default is very ugly, something like “Share the post “YOUR POST TITLE” FacebookTwitterGoogle+E-mail [SOME OTHER WORDS]”?

You certainly activated the buttons in the top of your post. It’s your choice, but in this case, you need to improve by yourself the SEO-description of your article/page. You can try using the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast.

Can I add a “Like” ou “Google +1” button with this plugin?

Yes, but not with the page options of this plugin. You need to use a hook to add an item in your buttons list.
See the juiz_sps_before_first_item or juiz_sps_after_last_item hook in the documentation.

I have a fatal error or a 500 server error since update to 1.2.3

Yes, you surely use pinterest button. It’s a bug, update to 1.2.4 or above.
Thank you.

I can’t just use shortcode by deactivating all the checkbox display option in admin option page? since 1.2.0

Yes, it’s a bug, please, use the plugin version 1.2.2 or above.

New style is not visible?

Please update to 1.1.3 or above

Some options are not visible (if it’s not the first installation, but an update of the plugin)

Deactivate and reactivate the plugin to force the rebuild of the options.

Had to contact the dev for some help as I'm a noob. The support I was given for this free plugin is even better than paid products. I'm so happy to stumble upon this amazing plugin.

I have tried several plugin before : - most of them do not display properly the social buttons on smartphones (third-party are blocked on browsers) - basic functionalities are not covered (LinkedIn share or direct Mailto) Yours is quick to load and works well ; )
