Works well. Highlights the possibility of social sharing to members much better than the XenForo defaults.
No support after one week is totally unacceptable and just shows disdain for the users of this extension, at least in my case.
Excellent! Very useful for me! Thank you so much for your efforts! And please, PLEASE add support RESOURCE MANAGER & XENFORO MEDIA GALLERY! And make copyright little smaller. =)
A must have if you care about social media presence and website performance. Easy to use and customize, author is helpful and keeps improving it. Thanks!
Great add-on. Simple, intuitive and fills a function gap on xF. My preference wasn't to have it responsive but to make the buttons small on both mobile & desktop. Doing that took minimal effort.
Thanks for the review, I'm glad you like it and appreciate it. :)

If you have any suggestions for improvements please do let me now.
This is a good addon but the branding afterwards wasn't mentioned. The response of the author was also not one that i like very much. The only thing you can do now is pay 20$, use the branded version or the old one with bugs. Anyway, good luck with it.
This is a ---> [BETA] <--- version, still need to improve some things and fix bugs. Is not working properly yet. Now the addon have a big copyright. uninstalled and deleted. Thank you. good luck!
Its Beta with the inclusion of sidebar support. What "things" and bugs need fixing? There was no mention from you of those anywhere?

There is nothing stopping you using the previous version without the branding if your not willing to support the amount of time put into creating and supporting this addon.
Great addon - I like this one more then the default XenForo share. Easy to download, install and set up. Great looking share buttons. Thanks for creating this one.
Amazing, simple, intuitive... broader scope for users to share, better return for the community as a result, faster page loading getting rid of default social button calls... well done.
This is one of the best add-one. Much better the default sharing buttons. I love it and my forums members do too. Great work indeed and please consider adding share count in your next update if any.
