Highlight and Share
Your users highlight text. Let them share it.
Highlight and Share is a free plugin on the WordPress Plugin Directory
A Note From the Plugin Author: Ronald Huereca
A co-worker of mine was on Vogue.com and noticed that when she highlighted text, a social option popped up. She asked if I could do this as a WordPress plugin.
The code was minimized, so I did my best to reverse-engineer it and bake it into a plugin.
I came up with the name Highlight and Share, and luckily the WordPress Plugin Team allowed me to use this name on .org.
As of this writing, the plugin is installed on 2,000+ sites. Although it’s not the most popular plugin out there, the users love it.
Highlight and Share Features
Here are several useful features that make social sharing very easy.
The sharing interface only shows when highlighting text and is out of the way so users can optionally use it.
Customize What is Shared
Eleven Built-in Themes
There are button themes for just about every need.
Click to Share Block
Allow your logged-in users to edit their comments indefinitely.
We have a Block Editor format option that makes it simple to add inline highlighting.
Highlight and Share supports shortlinks. It is compatible with most shortlink service plugins.
A Few Glowing Testimonials

Does everything I’d hoped, plus some!
And thanks to Ronald’s quick fix workaround, works with Elegant Themes Divi – perfectly! I love it.
Great addition to your site
Adds some convenient functionality that fits right in. If you miss some of what Medium provides on your WP site, this will add part of it.
Good experience with developer as well.
