Share.Plugin How-to

Does anyone have any experience with the Share.Plugin. I need to share a link and can't determine what is needed for that. Any help is much appreciated. I currently have SharePlugin by James M. and Jquertl, version 4.0.3 installed

thanks

    I figured it out. Simply replaced

            CrossShare.Current.ShareLink(url, message, title);
    

    With:
    CrossShare.Current.Share(new Plugin.Share.Abstractions.ShareMessage
    {
    Text = "Download mobile app",
    Title = "Share Mobile app",
    Url = "https://www.mysite.com/mobile"
    });

    I am sorry about the false alarm Pierce.

    thanks

    The plugin is operating, however, I dont understand it. I see an icon for reminders, "Add to Reading List' COpy, and 2 More(s). I just want to be able to share a link. I am sure there are some configurations, however, I don't know how to manage the settings. Thanks in advance.

    @PierceBoggan Being forced to update the share plugin, as a result of other packages requiring updates to Android support packages. Is there an updated tutorial on the updated plugin?
    thanks
