Plugin works as intended and alright, however admin popups to install their themes are just too annoying, and there’s no way to disable them (well if you don’t want to install other plugins lmao). If you hide them, next day they are shown again. Sometimes I have to hide them 3 times or more in a row to stop appearing. Sad times, didn’t want to write this review

Does the main job really well although some CSS work is needed to get the styling right on AMP enabled pages e.g. the color settings don’t work as expected. Not a deal breaker though for a super-light plugin. It would be good to have a shortcode built into a future release to enable adding the share buttons manually e.g. on Pages where one may want to selectively put the share buttons. Until such point, anyone who is interested in achieving this can use the following code in their functions.php or custom plugin. function meks_share_buttons() { ob_start(); meks_ess_share(); return ob_get_clean(); } add_shortcode('meks-share-buttons', 'meks_share_buttons');

Remember the days when Wordpress plugins were light weight, minimal bloat and the entire focus of the plugin was it’s functions? I have used a lot of social share plugins and this has to be the best yet. Simple, light weight, efficient, no slow down, Zero issues with caching, it just works perfectly. Look forward to more plugins from this developer. Amazing work!

I care most about clients finding something easy to use. This social share plugin is extremely easy to use with a simple, clean, minimalist layout and all the functionality that is needed. You have social share icons in seconds. Other plugins have interfaces that look like spam adverts, are overcomplicated and, worst of all, many allow you to select your preferences before informing you that you should go premium to use your selected icons. This is the best. Thank you!

I like the option to format the icons with simple black & white. Also, I tried a few social sharing plugins — but uBlock Origin and even the native adblocker in Vivaldi browser would block the icons due to embedded tracking. Meks Easy Social Share isn’t blocked, so I can be confident visitors to my site actually can see the sharing icons!
