Share buttons on Oxygen showcase page

    Hi,

    We’re trying to turn share buttons on for excerpts on the showcase page of the oxygen theme, but no buttons show when we select ‘ Front Page, Archive Pages, and Search Results’ in the sharing settings.

    Is there a different way to show share buttons on the showcase page using Oxygen theme?

    Thanks for your help!

    Howdy!

    Since Oxygen uses post excerpts on the Showcase page, it’s not possible to display sharing links for individual posts there. Only themes that display the full content will also display sharing links (the reasoning being, a user would wait to read the full post before they decide to share it.)

    I hope this clarifies!

    Hi sixhours,

    Many thanks for your speedy reply! That makes perfect sense, we were just hoping to maximise sharing potential.

    One last quick question – is it possible to have sharing buttons at both the top and bottom of a post? We’ve moved our share buttons to the top using CSS but agree that people should be able to read content before deciding to share as well(!), so it would be great to have both…

    Thanks again,

    Happy to help! With the sharing buttons, is only possible to select top or bottom display, but not both.
