Feature requests

Last Updated: 04.28.24

If you have a feature you would like added, feel free to contact us. Below are features we either have already planned or are discussing. Make sure to also check out our changelog.

Note: We take performance very seriously, and it will always be taken into account. Thankfully developing the plugin with this in mind from the beginning allows us to more easily add features while ensuring they aren’t loaded everywhere if not enabled.

Not possible

Not planning to implement

  • [12.06.22] Automatically generate custom social media images per post. Reason: Our friend, Andy Feliciotti, already has a great plugin for this (MightyShare), and it can be used alongside Novashare.
  • [06.01.20] Auto-posting to social networks based on a schedule. Reason: This is beyond the scope of our plugin.
  • [11.25.20] Options to incentivize clicking share buttons or integration with GamiPress or something similar. Reason: This is outside of the scope of what we’re planning to do with our plugin. 2x
  • [11.30.20] Add share icon next to share counts. Reason: We prefer to keep things clean and minimal where possible.
  • [07.25.21] Social share content locker. Reason: We aren’t a fan of this method for gated or locked content.
  • [08.02.21] Popup with CTA to subscribe or follow after you share. Reason: We don’t want to implement two of the same workflows together, as this can create a bad user experience.
  • [09.03.20] Add floating bar option to stick to the top of the screen. On mobile, users sometimes have ads running on the bottom. Reason: Not user-friendly on mobile.
  • [06.17.20] Different styles for desktop and mobile, for example, medium/squared for desktop and small/circular for mobile. Reason: This would harm performance.
