About Yet Another Social Plugin

Yet Another Social Plugin is a plugin for Joomla! to display Twitter's Share, Google's +1, Facebook's Like, and LinkedIn's Share buttons. The plugin is configurable to most of each button's available options, allowing for quick configuration for your site.

Features Include

  • Quick Configuration - The plugin can be quickly enabled with the default settings and be displayed on your site, or you can review each of the options to customize the experience.
  • Customizable output - The plugin includes logic to enable you to completely override the output in a manner similar to any component on your site by copying the output template to your site template's HTML folder.  Or, you can add some CSS rules using the pre-defined classes to position the buttons just how you want them.
  • Works with other plugins - Thorough testing has been done to ensure that this plugin, regardless of whether it is the first or last plugin to be run, works with all other content plugins installed on your site.  And the plugin won't modify anything in any area that it isn't intended to either.


Yet Another Social Plugin is a free plugin released on the GPL license. Visit the Releases section to download the plugin.

  • Stable
    • Version 2.0.0 for Joomla! 3.4.1+

Currently, Joomla! 3.4.1 and newer supported.  Future versions of Joomla! should be supported as well, but there may be a delay in availability based on changes between each version. Support for a version will end when the Joomla! project ends support for a release.

Certainly! The links for these activities are just below the download links above this FAQ section. Feel free to contribute patches or fork the code and push it back to the master branch on GitHub! Appropriate credit will be given if an idea you code is included.

My time is extremely taxed between my paying job, contribution to Joomla!, and supporting my own extensions. The best way you can support Yet Another Social Plugin is by using the extension, troubleshooting bugs, and contributing new ideas (with code if possible).
