Quickstart guide:

  2. After installation has finished a new component will appear in under Octobers 'CMS > Components' tab. You have the option to add this to only one page, or add it to a layout making it appear on all pages that use the layout. Whichever you chose the instructions are the same.

  3. Open the your selected page/layout, and add the component to it.

  4. Add component code anywhere on the page/layout.

  5. That's it. You now have a working YandexShare on your page. It has no outside dependencies, so you don't have to worry about anything else.
