Floated Share Buttons: How to enable or disable from specific pages using Targeting Rules

Follow

You may not always want your Floated Share Buttons to appear on your website's landing page or a contact page where there's no real shareable content. Adding a display rule will allow you to remove the buttons from those pages or posts without removing them from your entire site.

To get started, follow these steps:

  • Login to your Shareaholic.com account.
  • Select your site from the My Sites dropdown menu at the top of the page.
  • On the Apps page, under the 'Social Sharing' section, click on the Configure button next to the Floated Share Buttons block.

  • In the Floated Share Buttons pop up, select the Targeting Rules tab.

  • Selecting Show will enable Floated Share Buttons on specific pages.

  • On URL paths beginning with: Grouped URLs (ex: /2015/04)
  • On Desktop: Visitors viewing your page on a Desktop browser
  • On Mobile: Visitors viewing your page on a Mobile browser
