With all the amazing features that the Social Toolbar Pro has, some of the back end settings can get little overwhelming for some users. In this post we will list every section and show you what they do and how to edit them.
Social Toolbar Options Page
Two options on where to place your Toolbar, select TOP to place it in the complete top header or select BOTTOM to place it in complete bottom footer of your wordpress site.
Image Icon Size:
Two options for the size of your Toolbar. Smaller size is 30×30, which refers to the icons being 30 by 30 pixels. Larger size (default) is 40×40.
Use this to edit the background color of the main toolbar. You can either insert your own HEX# or use the custom color wheel.
Use this to edit the border color. The border is the skinny part (with the hide/show button) on top of toolbar and between the icons. You can either insert your own HEX# or use the custom color wheel.
Recent Tweet Background:
Use this to edit the background of the recent tweet section (only applies if recent tweet option is turned on). Located on to the right. You can either insert your own HEX# or use the custom color wheel.

These settings are for what URL you Social Share buttons will share (Google +1, LIKE and Tweet). If you select HOME, means no matter what website page the user is on those buttons will always share your Home page. If you select individual, then every page the user is on and clicks one of the buttons it will share that exact page.
