A Better Social Sharing Plugin For WordPress
Take Social Sharing to the Next Level with MONARCH, a Social Media plugin with Style.
Social Sharing Made Easy
Social Media is the lifeblood that keeps the internet glowing, and Social Sharing lets you harness that activity and use it as a positive force for your business.
Over 20 Social Networks to Choose From
Choose from over 20 social sharing networks to display on your website. Add and arrange any number of available networks to create a custom collection of sharing options for your visitors. Add Sharing Buttons in 5 Different Locations Different websites, pages, and posts have different social sharing needs. That’s why we’ve included a large selection of locations you can choose to place sharing buttons.
A floating sidebar is a very common, effective, and sleek way to add social sharing icons to any page on your website. We’ve even included unique hover styles for the vertical and browser edge orientation of a social sidebar.
Above or Below Content
Perfect for blog posts and content heavy pages, Monarch allows you to place sharing buttons either above the content area, below the content area, or in both locations.
On Images & Videos
Media is arguably the most shared content on the web, and Monarch makes media sharing even easier. When users hover over media elements within your content, social sharing buttons fade in for quick and easy sharing.
Monarch lets you create automatic sharing pop-ups that can be triggered by timed delays, when a user reaches the bottom of a post or page, and even upon page leave. These are incredibly effective.
Similar to triggered pop-ups, fly-ins are another great way to grab your readers’ attention when they are most engaged. These can also be triggered by time delays, page location, or when the user’s mouse is leaving the page. 6 Automatic Pop-Up & Fly-In Triggers Popups and Flyins can be triggered based off unique user interactions. This allows you to capture your visitors attention when they are most engaged, or when they are most in danger of leaving your page.
– Timed Delay
Choose a timed delay for your pop-ups and fly-ins so that they trigger after your readers have been on a page for a specific duration of time.
– Bottom of Post
Let Monarch auto detect when your readers reach the bottom of a post or page and give your readers a friendly reminder to share.
– After Commenting
After a visitor leaves comment on a post or page, you can present this highly engaged user with a social pop-up or fly-in.
– Upon % Scroll
Tell Monarch to trigger a social pop-up or fly-in to your visitors after they scroll a defined percentage down the page.
– After Purchasing
Display a sharing pop-up or fly-in to your customers after they checkout so they can share your online storefront with friends and family.
– After Inactivity
If a user is inactive on your page for too long, Monarch can be triggered to re-catch your visitor’s attention with a pop-up or fly-in. Build & Display Your Social Following Letting your users see your social networks profiles, follow counts, and easily become a follower is more than important for any business or individual. Monarch makes all of the above possible with just a few easy settings.

Place Follow Buttons in any Widget Area or Display With a Shortcode
Displaying social follow links within your content is as simple as generating and pasting a shortcode within your content. Placing this shortcode inside of a Divi Text Module is a perfect way to take advantage of this feature.
