csbuttons is a cross-browser jQuery plugin which has the ability to help create your own custom social share buttons/links with share counts. Supported services: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

How to use it:

1. Just put the main JavaScript file jquery.csbuttons.js after jQuery library and we're ready to go.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.csbuttons.js"></script>

2. Create the social share buttons/links using the following data attributes:

  • data-url: url to share
  • data-type: facebook, twitter, google, linkedin, pinterest
  • data-txt: Text to share
  • data-via: Your twitter account name
  • data-count: set to false will disable the social count
  • count_position: right, left
  • data-apikey: for google plus

<a href="#" class="csbuttons" data-type="facebook"><i class="fa fa-facebook fa-4x"></i></a>
<a href="#" class="csbuttons" data-type="twitter" data-txt="Text To Share" data-via="jQueryScript"><i class="fa fa-twitter fa-4x"></i></a>
