I really like the simplicity of the Genesis Simple Share plugin. It’s easy to use and does exactly what it needs to do. In my upcoming theme I changed the styling so it fitted more into the design.
Interested in how I changed this:
Just follow these steps.
Add the following code to the functions.php of your Genesis child theme. With this function we deregister the styling of the Genesis Simple Share plugin.
the second step is to add some CSS to create our own styling. Because the stylesheet of the plugin isn’t active we can write clean CSS without any !importants. Add the following CSS to the stylesheet of your Genesis child theme:
For the icons I use the Genericons font set that is automatically loaded by the Genesis simple share plugin. This makes my CSS relatively simple. Of course you can also use Font Awesome or another font set. This is beyond the scope of this small tutorial though.
The Genesis Simple share plugin has serval options in the backend. In the example CSS above I’ve styled the outlined, the filled, the small bar and medium bar options.
You may change the colors and size to your liking.
