    Thanks for the response, have you consider making a pro version of the plugin, that has the updates? If you do please let me know :)

    I notice the plugin hasn’t been updated in 2 years, is it dead? It looks really promising, I try installing it but, the button doesn’t displays.

      Hi Jacquie,

      To be honest I haven’t had the time to update the plugin. Be it still works pretty well. To get the plugin to display the link button you can embed the WP shortcode inside a post or add the function to your theme file. Please check out the plugin FAQ page for further instructions: https://wordpress.org/plugins/copy-url-button/faq/
