Update 03.09.2010: This extension got approved in JED. If you like this extension pls write reviews and vote in JED.

All share count or “Social share/Vote button” is a joomla plugin that shows social share or vote button in articles. It contains all popular social network or share/bookmark sites that supports button/badge for vote/share. I was inpired by the wordpres plugin “Digg Digg WordPress Plugin” which I am using in my blog for many days.

Social share/Vote button


Social Share/Vote Button plugin supports the following social network:

  • Facebook
  • for facebook share)
  • Twiter
  • Topsy(Alternative for twitter share)
  • Tweetmeme(Alternative for twitter share)
  • Diggg
  • Delicious
  • Stumble
  • Google Buzz
  • Yahoo Buzz
  • Dzone
  • Facebook Like
  • Flattr
  • Reddit
  • linkedin

Social Share and Vote button now supports other components!

  • Content (com_content)
  • K2(com_k2)
  • Quickfaq (com_quickfaq)
  • Eventlist(com_eventlist)

Button positions

  • Before Article
  • After Article
  • Left Aligned
  • Right Aligned

Button Visibility and Control

  • Control Each button’s visibility(Show/Hide)
  • Exclude for specific section
  • Exclude for specific category
  • Exclude for specific menu id
  • Show/Hide on front page
  • Sort button as weight

There are options to show before content, after content, left float, right float

Again, there are options to show/hide button for home page/front page, category view, section view or for any sepecific category whatever you need.

I am working to sort by weight to show buttons oder as you need. Also will add redit. If you have other ideas let me know. Btw, adding lazzy load like the digg-digg plugin of wordpress will be cool, hope to add in my joomla plugin.

How to install

  • Download the plugin as zip
  • Install from joomla admin panel like any other joomla extension
  • Go to plugins page and “publish” the plugin
  • Configure the plugin as you need
  • Change order of that plugin for all content plugins to change the plugin action order so that buttons show near content perfectly…
  • that’s it baby!

So use it, enjoy it and don’t forget to let me know how you like this new baby. Have a nice joomla time.


  1. I was wondering if there was a quick and easy way to add the button positions BOTH before & after the content at the same time.

    Thank you, can’t wait for the next update 🙂

  2. Hey there, I have to admit this is by far the best plug in for social buttons so well dont mate. I do however have a problem with one of my sites that it will not down load so I was wondering if you could shed some light on this for me.

    The error is as below.

    It was not possible to copy the selected file.

    JInstaller::install: Failed to copy file: /home/mjjcommu/public_html/site/tmp/install_4d028cb2589d1/socialshareandvotebutton/delicious.png to /home/mjjcommu/public_html/site/plugins/content/socialshareandvotebutton/delicious.png

    I get that when I am trying to upload in Joomla via the install functions

    Many thanks.

    Luca: Hi,thank you again for this great plugin, it works brilliantly.I have a small issue with my rockettheme template. When I use the roktabs module (it scrolls articles via a tab system) your plugin does not recognize the IDs of the articles or sections in the exclude.I exclude the articles/sections that are used in roktabs, but the share buttons appear anyway.Is there a way around this?Anyway thanks for the great plugin,Luca

    send me a copy of rocktab, I will check.
