Once again this week we take a look at some of the WooCommerce customization I personally added to A Piece of Sicily, a Sicilian crafts and food marketplace I run together with my very-soon-to-be wife.

This week we take a look at the single product page. There are hundreds of social media share plugins, but I decided to go lightweight and simply embed the Twitter Share and Facebook Like buttons, so that I don’t need to worry about plugin updates, conflicts, etc. You can see the final result on one of my product pages, such as https://www.apieceofsicily.com/en/shop/sicilian-food/confetture-iddu-e-idda-e-arancella/

So, here’s how it’s done. Enjoy!

Here’s the final result: some handy social media share buttons on the WooCommerce product page, without using a plugin!

PHP Snippet: Add Twitter Share and Facebook Like Buttons @ WooCommerce Single Product Page

Note 1: you can go to https://publish.twitter.com/?buttonType=TweetButton&widget=Button and https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-button/ respectively to generate your own HTML that you need to include in the snippet below.

Note 2: both social media platform give you some HTML for the frontend, and some JAVASCRIPT as well. You have to make sure you place these 2 in the correct places below.
