Here’s another nicely designed social sharing buttons tutorial for you. It’s from a blogger named Debbie Navarro of TheYellowBulb from the Philippines, and it’s a set of shiny icons that look as though they’re resting on top of a reflective surface, that rotate at a specified degree clockwise or counter-clockwise once you hover your mouse cursor over them. This rotating animation is accomplished using CSS3’s transform property.

Demo page

To install, follow the steps below.

  • Go to your Blogger dashboard and head over to the “Template” section
  • Click on “Edit HTML” and then “Proceed
  • Click to check the “Expand Widget Template” box
  • By pressing “Ctrl+F”, look for ]]></b:skin> in the template code
  • Copy and then paste the following CSS code right before it:
/*------------ TYB Image Rotate--------------*/ 
.social img:hover 
transform: rotate(-30deg); 
-ms-transform: rotate(-30deg); /* IE 9 */ 
-webkit-transform: rotate(-30deg); /* Safari and Chrome */ 
-o-transform: rotate(-30deg); /* Opera */ 
-moz-transform: rotate(-30deg); /* Firefox */ 

NOTE: The current rotation value is set to -30deg, which means the icons/buttons will rotate at a 30-degree angle counter-clockwise.

  • To change the rotation to clockwise, just remove the negative (-) symbol.
  • To increase the degree of rotation, simply indicate a higher value (e.g. 360 for full rotation).
  • Save your template.
  • Now go to the “Layout” section on your Blogger dashboard.
  • Click on any “Add a Gadget” button where you want the social sharing widget to be placed.
  • Select “HTML/JavaScript” on the gadgets list.
  • Copy/paste the following code in to the content box:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><center>

<span style='color: #7AA1C3; font-size: 16px; font-family: Verdana;'><b>Thank you for making this possible ! Kindly Bookmark and Share it.</b></span><br><br>

      I think the problem is with “href”. You can try and just remove the “expr:” and replace “&quot” with the actual single quote symbol (‘).
