Hideable Share Bar
Another popular request by users of Simple Share Buttons Plus is the main feature of version 0.5.2 – A hideable share bar feature!
Users stated that the share bar obstructed some of their content and wanted to be able to toggle its visibility. Simple Share Buttons Plus now has this feature, and on top of that you can select from a number of effects for how they should appear. Not only that… you can specify the direction for desktop and mobile separately!
As with most releases, there are of course some other changes which are all listed in the changelog.
The most important extra feature is with regards to performance optimisation. Simple Share Buttons Plus now generates a JSON file to store your settings, dramatically increasing load time of the plugin and required database calls. In tests all SSBP load times were between just 0.007 – 0.008 seconds (times will likely vary depending on your hosting environment).
