I found your share buttons and really liked it. I just didn't like the cost to be able to use it on my blog that should have share buttons built into the template.

I started out on 7.1 and this weekend I rebuilt my entire site in 7.0 so I have it ready to go before next billing cycle so I can go through the steps of switching everything over. I don't mind doing it and my site looks better for it, BUT the reason why I rebuilt is because 7.1 is missing share buttons on the blog. It really is odd that they left this off at launch. I thought they would work because I saw the settings before I built out the blog page. 😞

Two months ago, I asked Squarespace when they plan to have built-in share buttons on product pages on Squarespace 7.1. I received this: "For share buttons,  we don't have any public plans on whether we're adding that or not in the foreseeable future." Very disappointed. I guess we'll have to find a way on our own....😒

That was my exact experience with Squarespace late last year, which I mentioned earlier in this discussion. I have friends with deep pockets who have asked me about Squarespace 7.1, people who are familiar with my old 7.0 site and are impressed with the new one. I've told them all that while I truly do love the new platform, it lacks a native share option. This has been a dealbreaker for all but one. I must admit, however, I haven't told that one person yet. She's looking forward to signing up for 7.1 and I completely forgot to tell her because she was so enthusiastic about it. I don't have the heart to tell her right now. She sells art for tens of thousands of dollars (and more), could you imagine a visitor not being able to quickly share something like that? 

Just this evening, my sister asked me a few questions about 7.1, because the person she hired to build a website for her company suggested WordPress instead. Though she understands that WordPress is a lot more work than Squarespace, she doesn't have much confidence in 7.1 because of the lack of (in her words) "a simple function that even crappy websites have". 

I'm paying for share buttons thanks to someone here in this discussion, but I really would rather not.

I'm trying to figure out a way to add social sharing buttons through code injection on squarespace 7.1 because it doesn't have share buttons. I think there's a way I can manually add at least a like button through say facebook's "like button configurator" but it would be a manual add to every blog post through a code block. I've been told I could circumnavigate this through code injection but I don't know how to change the code to make it a different link for every blog post. Can anybody help me? Here's the code I'm trying to modify to recognize individual blog posts:


<div class="fb-share-button" data-href="https://inktractor.com/fiction" data-layout="button" data-size="small"><a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Finktractor.com%2Ffiction&amp;src=sdkpreparse" class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore">Share</a></div>

@Ophelia123 thank you so much for your help!!! Super easy!
