Upgrading to 1.0.0

Version 1.0.0 comes with a number of improvements, which can be read about here, and a full list of changes can be found in the changelog.

In order to get the same (or even better!) button style with the new version, you shall almost definitely need to take a few moments to get everything in place. After the update has been applied, first visit the ‘Styling’ page for Simple Share Buttons Plus and review all the settings that are there.

Firstly, click the save button, then reload the page. This will delete and recreate your unique ssbp.min.css, ensuring that the new HTML for your share buttons are styled up correctly. Afterwards, review the styles available to you using the built-in live preview beneath the settings.

Almost all issues

CDN/Cache/Minify: There have been changes to the HTML, CSS and JS files resulting in the potential for buttons to display or act differently. If you have anything in place resulting in the latest code being utilised, your share buttons will have issues. Simply clear/purge as necessary. The main files you need to ensure are up-to-date are ssbp.min.css, ssbp_standard.min.js and ssbp_lazy.min.js

Browser Cache: Your browser may have cached your share buttons’ CSS but to display them using the latest HTML, causing unexpected output. If you are unsure of how to completely clear your browser’s cache, this website will help – http://refreshyourcache.com. Note that this issue should likely resolve any admin styling issues too.

After making any of the changes above, submit your URL here to check if it is just something your end – www.browserstack.com/screenshots

Icons missing

White icons: If the background of your buttons are white, they may be there but white as well. To fix this, select the ‘Colours’ tab and remove any colours there – save then reload the page.

Async CSS: Loading CSS asynchronously will not allow the SSBP font to be loaded in time to display them within your share buttons – ssbp.min.css must be ignored from this feature. If it is requested enough a workaround for this could be possible.

If you’re still having problems and none of the above has worked, please submit a support ticket in the forum with a link to an example page (if possible), and any information that you feel may be appropriate.

Back and Frontend Issues

If both the admin panel and share buttons are affected, it may be the .htaccess file from SSBP that is clashing with some of your hosting provider’s configuration. This file is no longer deleted, so it can be deleted safely, likely fixing the issues you are experiencing.
