Very lightweight and fast. Convenient settings. If only there was an opportunity to mask social network links or disable their indexing

Отлично, наконец хоть кто-то Лайкли к WordPress присобачил, огромное спасибо. Сделаешь опцию, которой можно будет выбирать, где отображать кнопки, а где нет (например, если они мне нужны только в записях, а на страницах вообще наболт не упали), то цены плагину не будет. Ну и обновлять не забывай, когда новые версии Лайкли выходить будут.
