Share Count

Easily display the total amount of social shares of your content or page as one aggregate number in real time. This requires that you first set up the Social Share Bar with your desired parameters.

This is an example of the code snippet to use. Please note that if you are using data-path on your share bar widget, you will need to also specify the data-path in the parameters of the share count widget. If you are instead using data-url, then the same would go for that parameter needing to be in both the share bar widget and the share count widget.

<div class="viafoura">
        <div class="vf-widget vf-quote"
        data-widget="sharetotal"
        data-path="/"
        data-realtime="true">
        </div>
</div>
