Need social sharing lightweight plugin

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi, my client is a blogger and really needs a lightweight social media sharing plugin at least for facebook, twitter and reddit, anyone know of a good one, Pro version. We have tried several, purchased and free and they have either slowed down the site or actually killed it with php errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks Andrew - good point I should have thought of that

Speed will be an issue with it connecting up to Facebook

Thank you Paul, I told my client and he is very happy, we had to disable sharing about 2 weeks ago and that really hurts a blog!

Hi Paul, I took a look and actually installed the Module, but I 'm not sure I can get it to work how my client needs,

he has been using a plugin which shows the Sharing buttons with counts on all Articles, even in a Category Blog on Home page, this module does not appear to be able to do that, I can put it on pages, but what he really needs I believe is a Plugin, not a Module, especially one that would show counts of shares. (perhaps you could post that on the fb group?

The most important part is to show te Sharing buttons on the home page articles which are in a Category Blog menu item.thanks again!!

Hi Carin

I've asked some other members and got back

demo.storejextensions.org/jsitemap/

It does not support reddit - not sure if that is a deal breaker?
