Simple Sharing

Adds a sharing tool to every page and post.

Tired of sharing plugins that route all your shares through their site, or weigh your site down with massive bloatware?

We were, so we made this simple sharing plugin that just adds a few links for your visitors to share posts and pages directly to the selected social media hassle-free.

By using our shortcode [ESSharer] you can add the sharing tool to any page you want, in addition to the one you can find at the bottom of each page and post with content.

We do offer a Premium version with configuration settings that enable you to configure the sharing tool a bit more.


  • Does not route through our servers or any other servers.
  • Does not require any external libraries.
  • A lightweight plugin that only does what it's supposed to do.
  • Requires no extra installation. Works out of the "box".
  • Available in: English, Norwegian (Bokmal), French *, Russian *, Chinese (Simplified) *
* Google Translated

Premium Features


  • Put ESS on top or bottom of page (or both).
  • Decide which social media to share to.
  • Decide which pages, posts or custom posts to show ESS on.
  • Decide if it should show on the frontpage or not.


You decide what you feel it's worth to you and use the Donate link. When we receive your donation, we will send you a copy of the Premium version.
