Install the Plugin (Free and Pro version)

To install the Free version or Pro version from the admin interface, follow the Automated Install method described bellow.

If you purchased the Pro version, you received an email with a unique Authentication ID that will be required to install the Pro version.

Prerequisite — WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons (WPSSO RRSSB) is an extension for the WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) plugin. To install and activate the WPSSO RRSSB extension, the WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) plugin must already be installed and active. Additionally, all Pro extensions require an active and licensed WPSSO Pro plugin — Pro extensions depend on features only available in the Pro version of WPSSO.

Automated Install

  1. Go to the admin section of your WordPress site.
  2. Select the SSO menu item.
  3. Select the Extension Plugins and Pro Licenses sub-menu item.
  4. Scroll down and locate the “WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons (WPSSO RRSSB)” extension.
  5. If you have an Authentication ID for the WPSSO RRSSB Pro version, enter it here and save the settings.
    • All Pro extensions require an active and licensed WPSSO Pro plugin — if the Authentication ID input field is disabled, this indicates that the WPSSO Pro plugin needs to be installed first.
  6. Click the Plugin Details and Install link.
    • If the link is named Plugin Details instead (no “Install” in the name) then the extension is already installed and you can simply activate the extension from the WordPress Plugins page, or install the Pro version update under the WordPress Dashboard > Updates page (as you would any other plugin update).
  7. After clicking the Plugin Details and Install link, click the Install Now button in the overlay window.
  8. Click the Activate Plugin button when WordPress is done installing the plugin.
  9. You can find the WPSSO RRSSB settings under the Responsive Buttons and Responsive Styles sub-menus.
