Social Image Hover on Featured Images?


I installed a social share plugin that activates when the user hovers over images and enables the easy sharing of said images. However, it does not activate with the featured images, and I would like it to. I tested two different free plugins with the same result.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!



Sorry, no suggestions here. The featured images in Moesia are shown with default Wordpress functions, there’s nothing special about them so the plugins should work.
Can you post a link to your website with one of the plugins activated so I can see the source code?

Thanks, Vlad!

No problem:

The plugin is called WWM Social Share.

I appreciate the time!


…I actually just tested a third plugin – Word Press Image Hover Lite – and it’s not working at all. I leave this one activated. Thanks, Vlad.

Just tried both plugins. None of them are supposed to work with featured images so there isn’t much I can help with. Sorry.

Roger that. Thanks, Vlad! I search for a plugin that does. I appreciate the time.

Hi Tadesco,

I’m in the same boat as you, having tried exactly the same plugins with no luck. I would love to know if you found a solution, or custom-built something instead.

Thanks in advance!

Hi K,

I think I found one. It’s $18 but it appears to be working pretty well with desktop featured images. I just tested it on a tablet, however, and it works well but fails to load with featured images. I’ll post on the plugin forum and see if the developer has a fix.

Here’s the link to the plugin:

And if you want to see it in action:

Good luck!
