This question relates to plugins for Linkedin Share buttons, Twitter Tweet buttons, and Facebook Like buttons.
These are for blog posts on a WordPress blog which is at a subdomain of a site that is built in CakePHP.
Considering the possibility that plugins can become outdated, and that if this happens there is a possibility of losing the counts of shares / tweets / likes, I'm wondering if it's better to add in these sharing buttons manually into the
single.php theme file.
Is it better to use plugins to add in these buttons, or to add the buttons manually into the
single.php theme file?
