Social Master Individual Shortcode

Social Master version 4.3 and up uses TechGasp v3 framework. The Indivdual Shortcode is easy to use and can be found when you edit a post or a page under the wordpress text editor.  The Individual shortcode allows you to have different, unique shortcodes in each page or post. Once you have created your shortcode, Just insert the shortcode anywhere inside your text.

If not open, click the tab to open the Social Master Shortcode box. You can drag and drop the tab into any other bottom or sidebar position.

All settings are the same as the Advanced Widget settings but, since the shortcode is to be used inside pages and posts, there is no Vertical Display option.

Social Master Universal Shortcode

techgasp-social-master-plugin-menu

The display options are very much like the Individual Shortcode but instead of unique shortcodes per page, the Universal Shortcode allows to have the same shortcode across several or all pages and posts. The shortcode can be found under the plugin Menu Shortcodes.

Shortcodes Professional Display

The shortcodes are perfect to show the typical horizontal social sharing buttons inside all your wordpress blog pages and posts, almost all blogs have it. The professional blogs use Social Master because the buttons are always aligned and have asynchronous fast page load times. But that’s not all, you can select which social network buttons to display and their order according your social network relevance.

How does it work?

You have 3 rows to display the available 15 Social Network Buttons with full control to select which buttons to display and their order.

Each row per default shows a max of 5 buttons in a typical template page width of 600px.

Row 1 = Button 1 – Button 2 – Button 3 – Button 4 -Button 5

Row 2  = Button 6 – Button 7 – Button 8 – Button 9 -Button 10

Row 3  = Button 11 – Button 12 – Button 13 – Button 14 -Button 15

Having full control over the display you are not obliged to display all Rows and Buttons, .ie

Row 1 = Button 1 – Button 2 – Button 3 – Button 4 – Empty (no button)

Row 2 = Empty ( no buttons)

Row 3 = Empty  ( no buttons)

What if your wordpress template Blog page width is smaller than 600px!? Easy…

Row 1 = Button 1 – Button 2 – Button 3 – Button 4 – Empty (no button)

Row 2 = Button 6 – Button 7 – Button 8 – Button 9 – Empty (no button)

Row 3 = Button 11 – Button 12 – Button 13 – Button 14 – Empty (no button)

or even smaller,

Row 1 = Button 1 – Button 2 – Button 3 – Empty (no button) – Empty (no button)

Row 2 = Button 6 – Button 7 – Button 8 – Empty (no button) – Empty (no button)

Row 3 = Button 11 – Button 12 – Button 13 – Empty (no button) – Empty (no button)
