Hello, can you please integrate the share buttons/icons (share on Facebook, g+, linkedin, pinterest, ecc) like the social buttons/icons weebly already has integreted in order to post freely where you need on the pages and posts? It is a very useful tool! I needed this option on one website on different places and I had to use www.sharethis.com buttons. Only that I had to customise the template for this and insert manualy the code. I put the code on the wrong place and had some problems until I understud from where the problem was. Thank you! Kind regards dO

Hello @Adam and thank you for your suggestion.
I know well powr and I use it already because I dont't have a native weebly alterative, but I intended something else with sharing options. Something like I already mentioned: sharethis.com and other similar. 

Kind regards.

Best I can see, we can only add the facebook and twitter share buttons to blog posts and in only one (older) icon format. Weebly is way behind on that for blogging!! There should be a full line up of contemporary share buttons that we can utilize for our blogs including Google +, Pinterest, Linkedin, Email Share, etc. This is getting to be pretty key for building brands and driving SEO!!

YES YES AND YES!!! I totally agree. It is waaay too much to ask readers to copy and paste an individual blog post onto their social media platforms.

They would be really useful, I couldn't agree more!

Weebly is totally behind on this. Someone just informed me they tried to share one of my blog posts with an intro comment on FB and the current super basic Twitter and FB "share" icons available only allowed them to 'Like' my post vs. sharing it in a customized way as allowed on so many other platforms EVERYWHERE.

I wholeheartedly agree with previous comments! Sharing has a much more powerful affect on rank than Liking, and there are many more platforms now than the two offered.

I tried putting code on my blog pages for FB Like and Share buttons, but even those are not working the way I would like for them to. The ugliest photo on the page gets shared despite 25 blog posts--don't know why the computer picks one and I can't choose, plus it would be ideal if the post itself could be shared instead of the whole page with my site title which is oftentimes less appealing than the blog post caption.
