    I would like to offer a “flip” button as a sharing option to have posts flipped to flipboard. Flipboard provided code:

    Add to Flipboard Magazine.<script src=”https://cdn.flipboard.com/web/buttons/js/flbuttons.min.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>

    Can you add flipboard flip/share button please?

    This doesn’t need to be a theme feature. Just use a Graphene action hook widget area, add a text widget to that area, and add the following code to that text widget:

    <a data-flip-widget="flipit" href="https://flipboard.com">Add to Flipboard Magazine.</a>
    <script src="https://cdn.flipboard.com/web/buttons/js/flbuttons.min.js" type="text/javascript">
    </script>

    Other options for flip buttons are available here:

    I thought it much nicer if the flip button would be in the line up of other share buttons? is a reddit share button a theme feature? or facebook or… why not flip?

    Are you talking about the buttons in the top bar? Those aren’t for sharing; they’re for linking to your facebook page/twitter feed, etc.

    Maybe I got it mixed up? It is not a theme issue but a Jetpack issue?

    If you are using Jetpack to generate those sharing buttons, then it’s most like a Jetpack issue. Can’t tell for sure without a link.

    Kenneth;

    I have been able to figure out one or two things myself. There are two use cases for share bottons.

    1) in the #top-bar I have share buttons now directing to your my other presences on the web. With the custom options in graphene options I have created also a flipboard magazine link. (www.leika.nl) setting up these buttons is a very nice solution, thanks graphene! I used the custom mode to create monochrome buttons.

    QUESTION: how do I arrange these icons in the TOP-BAR on the RIGHT side of the #top-bar?

    2) Jetpack has share buttons as well. These buttons can be placed on pages, posts etc. The services offered are not expandable unfortunately, or I did not find a way to figure it out… my initial question was about this jetpack option.

    I would be much obliged if you could answer my alignment question.

    Thanks for your help

    Add this to custom CSS:

    #profiles {
    float: right;
    }

    I have found the Addthis code to be the most expandable.
