How to Add Sharing Buttons to WordPress

Add VK Sharing Service to Jetpack in WordPress

One of our users asked for a way to include sharing buttons in their WordPress site.

VK is a large European social network with more than a 100 million active users.

This is certainly possible to do by using the Jetpack plugin.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to add a VK sharing button to WordPress.

Step #1. Install sharing for Jetpack plugin

  • Log in to your WordPress site.
  • Go to Plugins > Add new and search for “ sharing for Jetpack”.
  • Click “Install Now” and activate the plugin. Sharing in WordPress

Step #2. Activate sharing

  • Go to Jetpack.
  • Be sure “Sharing” is active. Sharing in WordPress

Step #3. Enable the sharing button

  • Click the configure icon next to “Sharing” label. Sharing in WordPress
  • You will see the button listed in “Available services” section: Sharing in WordPress
  • Drag-and-drop to the “Enabled services” section below: Sharing in WordPress
  • At least, one of the options from “Show buttons on” should be checked. In my example I marked “posts” in order to show the share buttons in that content type. Sharing in WordPress
  • Save changes

Step #4. Check the end result
