Displaying Blogger's Default Share Buttons


Simple Blogger Tutorial, a collection of cool blogs this time sharing an article entitled:

Displaying Blogger's Default Share Buttons

Share Buttons are very useful for blogs because they can be a means for visitors to share our posts on social networking sites. Share Buttons or Blogger's default sharing buttons consist of Email, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus.

In the downloaded template, the share button is usually not displayed, or intentionally deleted, so we have to take several steps to re-display the blogger's default share buttons.

For those of you who want to re-display the default share buttons of the blogger, please follow the following tutorial:


  • Login to blogger.com
  • On the blogger dashboard, select Templates.
  • Click on Edit at the bottom of the blog post.

  • Check the Show Sharing Buttons, then click Save.

Please check on your blog, if the share buttons are still not there, please proceed to the following steps:

  • Click on Templates. We recommend that you backup your template first.
  • Next, click Edit HTML and click Proceed.
  • Put a check mark on Expand Widget Templates.
  • Look for the code <data:post.body/>, if there are two select the second one, then put the following code below it:

    <div class='post-share-buttons'>

    <b:include data='post' name='shareButtons'/>

    </div>

    You can also put the code under the <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'/> code, it's up to you where you want to put it.
  • Save the template, and check your blog.


If the share buttons still don't appear, continue to the following steps:

  • Look for the code below:

    <b:includable id='shareButtons' var='post'>

    blah, blah, blah,,,,

    </b:includable>

  • Replace with:

    <b:includable id='shareButtons' var='post'>

      <b:if cond='data:top.showEmailButton'><a class='goog-inline-block share-button sb-email' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=email" ' expr:title='data:top.emailThisMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.emailThisMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showBlogThisButton'><a class='goog-inline-block share-button sb-blog' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target =blog"' expr:onclick='"window.open(this.href, \"_blank\", \"height=270,width=475\"); return false;"' expr:title='data:top.blogThisMsg' target='_blank'><span class=' share-button-link-text'><data:top.blogThisMsg/></span></a></b:if><b:if cond='data:top.showTwitterButton'><a class=' goog-inline-block share-button sb-twitter' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=twitter"' expr:title='data:top.shareToTwitterMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToTwitterMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showFacebookButton'><a class='goog-inline-block share-button sb-facebook' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target =facebook"' expr:onclick='"window.open(this.href, \"_blank\", \"height=430,width=640\"); return false;" ' expr:title='data:top.shareToFacebookMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToFacebookMsg/></span></a></ b:if><b:if cond='data:top.showOrkutButton'><a class='goog-inline-block share-button sb-orkut' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "& target=orkut"' expr:title='data:top.shareToOrkutMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToOrkutMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showDummy'><div class='goog-inline-block dummy-container'><data:post.dummyTag/></div></b:if> share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToFacebookMsg/></span></a></b:if><b:if cond='data:top.showOrkutButton'><a class=' goog-inline-block share-button sb-orkut' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=orkut"' expr:title='data:top.shareToOrkutMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToOrkutMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showDummy'><div class='goog-inline-block dummy-container'><data:post.dummyTag/></div></b:if> share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToFacebookMsg/></span></a></b:if><b:if cond='data:top.showOrkutButton'><a class=' goog-inline-block share-button sb-orkut' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=orkut"' expr:title='data:top.shareToOrkutMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToOrkutMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showDummy'><div class='goog-inline-block dummy-container'><data:post.dummyTag/></div></b:if> goog-inline-block share-button sb-orkut' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=orkut"' expr:title='data:top.shareToOrkutMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToOrkutMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showDummy'><div class='goog-inline-block dummy-container'><data:post.dummyTag/></div></b:if> goog-inline-block share-button sb-orkut' expr:href='data:post.sharePostUrl + "&target=orkut"' expr:title='data:top.shareToOrkutMsg' target='_blank'><span class='share-button-link-text'><data:top.shareToOrkutMsg/></span></a></b :if><b:if cond='data:top.showDummy'><div class='goog-inline-block dummy-container'><data:post.dummyTag/></div></b:if>

    </b:includable>

  • Save the template, and check your blog.

If until this step the share buttons still don't appear, I don't know what template you want?!?
