Want highlight sharing like Medium on your WordPress blog? Use Epic Sharer.
Medium is beautifully designed.
Every feature has just the right amount of discoverability and usability. One such feature is the Medium sharing popup.
The first time I saw this, I wanted it for my blog.
When it was recently needed for Epictions Blog, I finally decided to go ahead and create a WordPress Plugin for this purpose.
With some testing and a couple of changes, I was able to roll it out for use on any WordPress blog.
Right now, it is available in WordPress Plugin Directory. You can download Epic Sharer here.
Or you know, just go to Plugins → Add New and type ‘Epic Sharer’. It’s right there. :)
I have made minimal options available for the plugin as now. You can:
- Set a via handle for tweets.
- Show only on posts, pages or homepage.
I have some changes in mind that will make the plugin better. Including:
- Adding hover state (turn the Twitter/Mail icon any color you want when you mouse moves over them)
- Adding Facebook sharing.
If you have features or suggestions, drop me a tweet, comment here or drop me a mail.
