A New Design for Sharing and Reblogging

Interaction is integral to the blogging experience. We've just redesigned sharing and reblogging on WordPress.com to make joining the conversation even easier.

Today, we’re launching a refreshed sharing and reblogging experience. We’re bringing both visual and functional improvements to how reblogging, sharing, and liking posts on WordPress.com works. Let’s take a look at some of the changes we’ve introduced.

Reblogs

We’ve redesigned reblogged posts for clearer attribution and more intelligent excerpting. If the reblogged post contains pictures, those images now really shine — even in the reblog.

To accompany the new reblog design, we also crafted a brand new Reblog button to show next to the Like button, and both have a fresh, clean look:

Sharing

Speaking of new buttons, we also overhauled your blog’s social sharing buttons:

sharing-text-icons

With a more subdued, streamlined feel, these buttons lend your posts’ footer an airier, lighter look. They now also share the same visual style as the Like and Reblog buttons.

We replaced the previously-used graphics with an icon font — which means the new icons look great on any screen, regardless of resolution, even when you zoom in. In fact, if you have the Custom Design upgrade, it’s now easier than ever to customize these buttons further. Changing the color of an icon font is as simple as one line of CSS.

If you miss the colors, we made an extra-colorful option for you, but still kept things simple:

sharing-icons

To select this gorgeous, round version, pick the “Icon only” option from your dashboard, by going to Settings  Sharing.

We really hope you enjoy these improvements!
