Greetings:

I'm coming to you all with yet another WordPress-related question.

Does anyone have advice regarding an accessible Share Widget plugin
for WordPress?

We've discussed share widgets on the WebAIM list, in the past, and
I've not encountered many that are accessible (for WordPress or
otherwise) unless people build their own.

. I'm bcc-ing some WordPress folks who may be on the list, so please
reply on list so as to help others, if you are a subscriber, and
pardon the duplication.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts, advice, links, pointers about
"gotchas," etc.

Best,
Jennifer

Hey all,

Jennifer, I’m assuming by accessible share widget, you mean a set of links that enables a user to share a page via a social networking service.

I can’t think of any plugins for this that I’ve tested. Usually when I need these, I just put them in the theme itself since they’re simple links.

If may be worth pinging Joe Dolson on Twitter, as he’s a bit more familiar with popular plugins.

Good luck!
DK

Hi David, plus everyone.

I mentioned to Jennifer that I'd created a plugin for that a couple of
years ago.

It's not in the WP repository (yet) but I can distribute it if people are
interested.
