Preguntas frecuentes

Where are the options, and how can I customize the sharing plugin?

In WordPress, go to Settings > AddToAny.

Setup Follow buttons (like Instagram, YouTube, etc.) using the AddToAny Follow widget in Appearance > Widgets (or Appearance > Customize).

To further customize AddToAny, see the WordPress sharing documentation for the AddToAny plugin. Many customizations will have you copy & paste one or more lines of code into your “Additional JavaScript” or “Additional CSS” box. Those boxes are in Settings > AddToAny.

Something is wrong. What should I try first?

Try temporarily switching themes and deactivating other plugins to identify a potential conflict. If you find a conflict, try contacting that theme or plugin author. If an issue persists on a default theme with all other plugins deactivated, search the WordPress plugin’s support forum.

Feel free to post here, where the community can hopefully help you. Describe the issue, what troubleshooting you have already done, provide a link to your site, and any other potentially relevant information.

The share buttons are not displaying for me. Why, and what should I try?

Something on your own device/browser/connection is likely filtering out major social buttons.

Try another web browser, device, and/or Internet connection to see if the buttons appear. Tools like or will give you an idea of what other people are seeing. The usual cause for this uncommon issue is 3rd party browser add-on software that blocks ads and optionally filters out major social buttons. Some security apps and Internet connections have an option to filter social buttons. Usually a social filter option is disabled by default, but if you find that some software is inappropriately filtering AddToAny buttons, let AddToAny know.

What is the shortcode for sharing?

You can place your share buttons exactly where you want them by inserting the following shortcode:


Customize the shared URL like so:

[addtoany url="" title="Some Example Page"]

Display specific share buttons by specifying comma-separated service codes:

[addtoany buttons="facebook,mastodon,email"]

Share a specific image or video to certain services that accept arbitrary media (Pinterest, Yummly, Houzz):

[addtoany buttons="pinterest,yummly,houzz" media=""]

For Facebook sharing, how can I set the thumbnail image and description Facebook uses?

Facebook expects the Title, Description, and preview image of a shared page to be defined in the Open Graph meta tags of a shared page.

Use Facebook’s Sharing Debugger on your pages to see how Facebook reads your site. “Scrape Again” to test site changes and clear Facebook’s cache of a page, or use the Batch Invalidator to purge Facebook’s cache of multiple URLs.

To change the title, description and/or image on Facebook, your theme’s header file should be modified according to Facebook’s OpenGraph specification. With WordPress, this can be accomplished with plugins such as Yoast SEO or the Social Meta feature of the All in One SEO Pack. Please see those plugins for details, and post in the WordPress or plugin author’s forums for more support.

For more technical information on setting your pages up for Facebook sharing, see “Sharing Best Practices for Websites” in Facebook’s documentation.

Why do share links route through AddToAny?

AddToAny routing enables publisher customization, visitor personalization, and keeps the AddToAny plugin remarkably lightweight without the need for constant plugin updates. In AddToAny menus, visitors see the services they actually use. On mobile, AddToAny presents the choice of sharing to a service’s native app or mobile site and the preference is used on the next share. Publishers take advantage of AddToAny services such as email templates, custom parameters, URL shorteners, localization, and more. Just as service icons change, service endpoints change too, and AddToAny is updated daily to reflect service endpoint and API changes.

Where are buttons such as Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat?

Configure your social media profile links by adding the “AddToAny Follow” widget in Appearance > Customize or Appearance > Widgets.

How can I use custom icons?

Upload sharing icons in a single directory to a public location, and make sure the icon filenames match the icon filenames packaged in the AddToAny plugin. In WordPress, go to Settings > AddToAny > Advanced Options > check the “Use custom icons” checkbox and specify the URL to your custom icons directory (including the trailing /). For AddToAny’s universal button, go to Universal Button, select “Image URL” and specify the exact location of your AddToAny universal share icon (including the filename).

How can I place the share buttons in a specific area of my site?

In the Theme Editor (or another code editor), place this code block where you want the button and individual icons to appear in your theme:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT(); } ?>

You can specify AddToAny service code(s) to show specific share buttons, for example:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { 
        'buttons' => array( 'facebook', 'mastodon', 'email', 'whatsapp' ),
    ) );
} ?>

To customize the shared URL and title:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { 
        'linkname' => 'Example Page',
        'linkurl'  => '',
    ) );
} ?>

To share the current URL and title (detected on the client-side):

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { 
    ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT( array( 'use_current_page' => true ) );
} ?>

To hardcode the shared current URL and modify the title (server-side):

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { 
        'linkname' => is_home() ? get_bloginfo( 'description' ) : wp_title( '', false ),
        'linkurl'  => esc_url_raw( home_url( $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) ),
    ) );
} ?>

To share a specific image or video to certain services that accept arbitrary media (Pinterest, Yummly):

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_SHARE_SAVE_KIT' ) ) { 
        'buttons'   => array( 'pinterest', 'yummly' ),
        'linkmedia' => '',
        'linkname'  => 'Example Page',
        'linkurl'   => '',
    ) );
} ?>

How can I place the follow buttons in a specific area of my site?

See the supported follow services for service code names, then place this example code in your theme’s file(s) where you want the follow buttons to appear:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'ADDTOANY_FOLLOW_KIT' ) ) {
        'buttons' => array(
            'facebook'  => array( 'id' => 'zuck' ),
            'instagram' => array( 'id' => 'kevin' ),
            'tumblr'   => array( 'id' => 'photomatt' ),
    ) );
} ?>

How can I add a custom share button?

You can add the following example PHP code using a “functionality” plugin such as the Code Snippets plugin:

function addtoany_add_share_services( $services ) {
    $services['example_share_service'] = array(
        'name'        => 'Example Share Service',
        'icon_url'    => '',
        'icon_width'  => 32,
        'icon_height' => 32,
        'href'        => '',
    return $services;
add_filter( 'A2A_SHARE_SAVE_services', 'addtoany_add_share_services', 10, 1 );

How can I add a custom follow button?

You can customize the following example PHP code and add it to a “functionality” plugin such as the Code Snippets plugin:

function addtoany_add_follow_services( $services ) {
    $services['example_follow_service'] = array(
        'name'        => 'Example Follow Service',
        'icon_url'    => '',
        'icon_width'  => 32,
        'icon_height' => 32,
        'href'        => '${id}',
    return $services;
add_filter( 'A2A_FOLLOW_services', 'addtoany_add_follow_services', 10, 1 );

How can I align the standard sharing buttons to the center or to the right side of posts?

It depends on your theme, but you can try adding the following CSS code to your Additional CSS box in Settings > AddToAny.

To align right:

.addtoany_content { text-align:right; }

To align center:

.addtoany_content { text-align:center; }

How can I remove the button(s) from individual posts and pages?

When editing a post or page, uncheck “Show sharing buttons”, which is located next to the WordPress editor. Be sure to update or publish to save your changes.

An older method was to insert the following tag into the page or post (HTML tab) that you do not want the button(s) to appear in: <!--nosharesave-->

How can I force the button(s) to appear in individual posts and pages?

When editing a post or page, check the “Show sharing buttons” checkbox, which is located next to the WordPress editor. Be sure to update or publish to save your changes. Note that, by default, AddToAny is setup to display on all posts and pages.

An older method was to insert the following tag into the page or post (HTML tab) that you want the button(s) to appear in: <!--sharesave-->

How can I remove the button(s) from category pages, or tag/author/date/search pages?

Go to Settings > AddToAny > uncheck “Display at the top or bottom of posts on archive pages”. Archive pages include Category, Tag, Author, Date, and also Search pages.

How can I programmatically remove the button(s)?

You can disable AddToAny sharing using a filter (PHP code) that you can add to a “functionality” plugin such as the Code Snippets plugin.

Disable AddToAny sharing in specific categories, for example:

function addtoany_disable_sharing_in_some_categories() {
    // Examples of in_category usage:
    if ( in_category( array( 'my_category_1_slug', 'my_category_2_slug' ) ) ) {
        return true;
add_filter( 'addtoany_sharing_disabled', 'addtoany_disable_sharing_in_some_categories' );

Disable AddToAny sharing on a custom post type, for example:

function addtoany_disable_sharing_on_my_custom_post_type() {
    if ( 'my_custom_post_type' == get_post_type() ) {
        return true;
add_filter( 'addtoany_sharing_disabled', 'addtoany_disable_sharing_on_my_custom_post_type' );

How can I position a vertical floating share buttons bar relative to content?

Go to Settings > AddToAny > Floating > select “Attach to content” then input the CSS selector(s) that match the HTML element you want to attach to.

Is AddToAny GDPR compatible?

Yes, AddToAny is GDPR compatible by default.

How can I load the buttons after content insertion with Ajax and infinite scroll?

AddToAny supports the standard post-load event.

Ajax and infinite scroll plugins/themes should always fire the post-load event after content insertion, so request standard post-load support from plugin & theme authors as needed.

Use the following line to dispatch the post-load event for AddToAny and other plugins:

jQuery( 'body' ).trigger( 'post-load' );

How can I set the plugin as a “Must-Use” plugin that is autoloaded and activated for all sites?

Upload (or move) the add-to-any plugin directory into the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory. Then create a proxy PHP loader file (such as load.php) in your mu-plugins directory, for example:

<?php require WPMU_PLUGIN_DIR . '/add-to-any/add-to-any.php';

Hello, I’ve been using that plugin for a very long time and I thank you for it but whenever I share articles on Twitter/X on smartphones it does not open the app and thus I can’t share them, I have to copy the title and the url. A fix would be very much welcome. Thanks !
23 de mayo de 2024
Have been using this on my sites for years. Works flawlessly, stays up to date.
30 de abril de 2024
Jeder Klick auf die Share-Buttons wird erst mal auf die Server von AddToAny umgeleitet. Die fragwürdigen Begründungen der Betreiber und dass man dieses Verhalten nicht abschalten kann, sind ein deutliches Alarmzeichen gegen dieses Plugin.
9 de abril de 2024
This must be the best plugin for this functionality on the WordPress environment. Thank you very much developers! 😄
5 de abril de 2024
The AddToAny people responded – promptly – to my forum post looking for troubleshooting tips, and they hit the nail on the head. I had spent a lot of time trying to figure out why the icons were not displaying properly, and they were immediately able to spot a conflict with the javascript in our theme; even identifying the exact bit of code that was causing the conflict. Most other plugin support staff would have resorted to the generic “try disabling all of your other plugins and using the default theme.” But these folks went the extra distance to find the one js file that contained the conflict, examine it, and direct me to the specific line of code that caused the problem! You’ve got to love the WordPress community for generosity like that! Thank you, AddToAny, you folks are wonderful.
