Pin All the Images

Enabling the Image Hover Pin Button will place a “Pin” button over top of every image inside of your content when a reader hovers their mouse over it. This makes every image on your page highly shareable to Pinterest!

Powerful Share Customization

“I use Social Warfare – Pro because I want my readers to have the ability share my creative works!”
Denver Prophit Jr., Digital Marketing Consultant

Social Warfare for WordPress is among the pioneers of customizing how your content is shared, particularly with Pinterest. The Social Warfare – Pro add-on allows you to decide exactly which image, title and description appears when your content is shared on sites like Facebook. This also applies to any other networks that use Open Graph data for social shares.

On top of that, you can upload a custom Pinterest image and write a custom description so that when someone clicks the pin button, the exact image you’ve chosen shows up with exactly the description you’ve written. No more hoping that your readers choose the best image and write an optimal description for you!

In addition to that, you can also write a custom tweet for when someone clicks on the Twitter button. The exact tweet you wrote will be displayed in the Twitter share box and Social Warfare will automatically add the link to your content and your @username to the end of it.

These capabilities are what professional social media marketers and bloggers have been waiting for.

Custom Design and Placement

Customize which sharing networks you display, how your buttons look and where they show up.

You can choose from 6 different button shapes, 8 different color themes plus the ability to choose custom colors for your buttons. The design combinations are unlimited.

You will also get 6 different Click to Tweet styles and an option to create your own style via your theme’s CSS.

USE SHORTCODES TO MANUALLY PLACE SHARE BUTTONS ANYWHERE

If you want to place buttons in the middle of an article, you can with our shortcode.

Minimum Social Proof

If you would prefer to only show counts after a certain minimum number of shares has been met (to avoid “negative social proof”), you can do that as well. Or if you’d rather just have no counts showing at all, just turn them off altogether.

Share Recovery: Your Lost Share Counts Recovered!

Have you ever changed permalink structures, domain prefixes, connection protocols (http-https) or just flat out changed domains and ended up losing all your social share counts?

We’ve built a tool right into Social Warfare called Share Recovery which allows you to get back your lost share counts if you’ve ever had to modify your permalink settings.

Social Authorship, Twitter Cards, Rich Pins, and Facebook!
