Adding a Google+ button to sharebar, and a Pin it button too, is pretty much essential when setting up your wordpress plugin.  They do not come as standard when you download the plugin, but thankfully they’re both really easy to add.

  1. Go to Settings in WordPress and select Sharebar
  2. Click “Add New Button”
  3. Name your button
  4. Input the desired position of the button
  5. Copy the code below and paste in the “Big Button” field
  6. Click “Add Button”
  7. Enable the button by checking the box to the left and click “Update” at the bottom
