Add Quora Sharing Button on WordPress

Quora LogoQuora is growing fast, mainly because of the rich user-generated content. Like other social sharing buttons, I’ve came across the need of Share to Quora button.

This button can be made in WordPress.com, and WordPress.org users can also use by installing JetPack Plugin.

Go to Setting > Sharing > scroll to Sharing Button Area

Add a new service

Service name: Quora

Sharing URL: http://www.quora.com/board/bookmarklet?v=1&url=%post_url%

Icon URL: https://tweetpluslike.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/quora-icon.png

Now move your newly created button in Enables Services Area. 🙂 Done!

Please post your comment if you need help with.


Furthermore, if you want to create Custom URL to Share on Quora for any webpage, or pdf file. Just add the following URL

http://www.quora.com/board/bookmarklet?v=1&url=XXXX

Don’t forget to replace XXXX with your URL.
