To add social share buttons below the image in a WordPress post, you can follow these steps:
- Install and activate a social sharing plugin: There are several reliable social sharing plugins available for WordPress, such as Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress, Social Warfare, or MashShare Share Buttons & Social Media Icons. Choose and install one of these plugins from the WordPress Plugin Repository.
- Configure the plugin: Once the plugin is installed, go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to the settings page of the social sharing plugin. You will typically find it under "Settings" or in a dedicated menu tab. Configure the plugin as per your preferences and select the social media platforms you want to include.
- Specify the share button position: In most cases, these social sharing plugins offer options to choose where the share buttons should appear on your posts. Look for an option to display the buttons below the image. This may involve selecting a theme option or customization tool provided by the plugin. Check the plugin's documentation or settings to find the specific option.
- Update and save settings: After specifying the desired share button position, save your changes by clicking on the "Save" or "Update" button provided by the plugin. This will ensure that the share buttons will be displayed below the image on your WordPress posts.
- Add images to your posts: Now, when creating or editing your WordPress posts, make sure to add an image that you want to display. You can do this by clicking on the "Add Media" button within the post editor and selecting an image from your media library or uploading a new one.
- Preview and publish the post: Once you have added the image and completed the post content, preview the post to see if the share buttons are displayed below the image. If everything looks good, publish the post.
