NGFB Shortcode for Sharing Buttons

You can add one or more social sharing buttons to your content by using the [ngfb] shortcode anywhere in the content text. Make sure the “Enable Shortcode(s)” option (on the NGFB Advanced settings page) is enabled, or the shortcode will be ignored. ;-)


You may use several arguments:

A list of buttons to include, as shown in the example above. You must include at least one button name.
A specific URL to share, instead of the current webpage or Post URL.
A picture ID to share for the Pinterest and Tumblr buttons. NextGEN Gallery picture IDs must be in the form of ‘ngg-#’ (for example: pid="ngg-123").
A specific photo / image URL to share for the Pinterest and Tumblr buttons. The photo argument takes precedence over the pid argument.
A CSS class name to wrap the shortcode buttons.
A CSS id name to wrap the shortcode buttons.
A custom filter id that can be used to modify the default options filter name. The default filter id is “shortcode” and the resulting complete filter name is wpsso_sharing_html_shortcode_options. You can hook into this filter to modify the NGFB options before the plugin generates the shortcode buttons HTML.
The id of a button preset to apply – for example, “large_share_vertical” or “small_share_count”. The default is to use the preset value from the NGFB Buttons settings page.
