I have just installed really simple ssl to redirect m website url from http to https.
But the social counts has not been showing rightly. I have come to know that really simple ssl social can do the trick. I have build in social count button in my theme. Before going to purchase i like you to know will it work for my site to recover social counts on Google+, Facebook and others.

Really Simple SSL social is able to recover share/like counts from Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linkedin and Stumbleupon. While the plugin can work with the buttons from your theme we are unable to guarantee the all likes/shares will return without using the built-in Really Simple SSL social buttons. The built-in buttons retrieve for example Facebook likes and shares directly from the Facebook API, making it work all the time. Other plugins/themes might do this differently. In short, if you want to be sure all shares and likes are returned use the built-in buttons.

hi. Is it possible to use this plugin to recover social count only, without using the social buttons? I have my social buttons in my theme. I switched to https and only want my social counts back….November 13, 2019 at 11:31 pm #300554VidarParticipant
So it only works for me when I use “Build-in buttons”. The buttons with count are sooo ugly.
The only one I like are the last one “sidebar dark”. The problem with that one is that it do not work if the post have to much likes!!!November 13, 2019 at 11:46 pm #300555VidarParticipant
1: when I use “Build-in buttons” it get my facebook liks but not my Twitter and Pinterest
2: The only button that works now is the round and only if I only have FB or the numbers will go in to the other button if it is “to much” likes. And that button do not have a option do be on the side, only top and bottom.
Can you fix this?
