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.
We have a Block Editor format option that makes it simple to add inline highlighting.
