PageLines DMS Share Me

Share Me is an add-on I developed for the PageLines DMS theme for WordPress. Share Me adds social sharing icons for Google+, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Delicious, Digg, LinkedIn, & Email and is configured within the PageLines admin interface. For those of you who used PageLines PlatformPro in the past, this section is a complete revamp of the ShareBar.

Installation

install wordpress plugin

Installing the zip file

To install Share Me for PageLines DMS:

  1. Visit your PageLines account and download the Share Me add-on (this tutorial assumes you have purchased the section already).
  2. Upload the original zip file (do not change the file name!) to WordPress admin –> Plugins –> Add New –> Upload.
  3. Activate the plugin.
Note: Share Me is for PageLines DMS only. If you’re looking for a sharing tool for PageLines Framework, check out ShareBar Extended.

What it looks like

After you have installed and activated Share Me, visit the front-end of your website to access the DMS editor. From there, you can add Share Me wherever you want! If you need further instruction on how to use and configure PageLines sections and plugins, view this PageLines tutorial.

Set the Options

Share Me options

Available options

The Share Me options allow you to configure:

  • sharing icons
  • text alignment
  • icon alignment
  • the “call to action” text
  • text font
  • text size
  • text color

Note: If you enable all sharing icons while having a narrow-width content area, Share Me may wrap to two lines. If this happens, change the sharing text to something a little different. Shortening the sentence by a word or two usually does the trick.

Customizing with CSS

If you’re like me and customize everything with CSS, you may find this information handy. The most important things you may want to change use these CSS selectors:

.section-share-me /**use to change the entire section container**/
.section-share-me .pl-section-pad /**use to change the padding and margins of the text container**/
.shareme_text  /**use to change the color, padding, and margins of the text**/
.shareme_icons  /**use to change the color, padding, and margins of the icons**/
