Super Web Share is a WordPress-based native share plugin that helps users easily share the page/post with others by prompting the native share action. As SuperWebShare only shows the apps installed within the device upon the share prompt, the rate of sharing of post/page will be higher. Due to that reason, website developers can skip the usage of other social media icons upon their website and keep the share more prominent.
The Super Web Share plugin for WordPress helps increase your traffic and engagement by a single quick click to share the website with your friends and social media. Super Web Share works on all supported browsers like Chrome for Android, Edge for Android, Brave for Android, and Opera for Android. It will show the native apps installed upon the device once you share the article with others; due to that, users can easily share the page/post with others super easily in just a click. Upon the native share, which prompts up, they can easily copy the website page link if the users need it.
It takes less than a minute to set up Super Web Share, and we provide a clean uninstall by removing the entire data entry it creates. We also won’t save any settings to your database until you manually save the settings. We also provide a fallback native popup if the Native Web Share is not supported within the browser.
Currently, the Super Web Share plugin provides a share button before and after the post/page content and a floating share button where you can set the color, the text of the share buttons, the position of the floating button, and can also set the pages or posts which you would like to show the share buttons via our Settings page, to easily add the share feature to your websites. As an addon, we are fully compatible with the AMP plugin, which means you can add the native share to your AMP pages provided by the AMP plugin.
