AddThis: Superior Service, Inferior Plugin (5 posts)

    As much as I am impressed with AddThis.com bookmarking service and analitics capabilities, I am disappointed with AddThis plugin:

    - "Menu type" = "Static" breaks and completely messes up the web page.

    - "Button style" option does not work.

    - "Show stats in admin dashboard" does not work.

    - "Brand" option does not work.

    - "Dropdown/Toolbox Services" option is not documented so I couldn't even try it.

    Thanks for letting us know!

    In the development branch, we've fixed
    - the "static" menu type bug
    - the brand option

    The services option we've added more links to our help docs for. The button style stuff we'll be fixing soon.

    What was the problem with your stats showing?

    (FYI, those two bugs are now fixed in 1.6.4.)

    @_mjk_: Great service, thanks.

    The plugin needs to allow me to configure the EXACT configuration that I want using the API in an "Advanced" box instead of settling for the selection of options you have chosen.

    I would say that generally this is a good plugin for the non coding users but you should make it so that the coding users get the full benefit of the GUI with easy integration of their knowledge and skills.

    It would also be convenient to have the version number emitted on the configuration page, maybe right after the title.

    at http://fireofliberty.com/ I am using WP2.9.2 and AddThis 1.6.4

    Menu->static worked fine.
    Button Styles: all worked for me.
    Dashboard: Works fine (if you type your password correctly ;)
    Brand: Works, but how do you set colors? No Dox.
    I didn't test the dropdown/toolbox sections, No Dox.

    I also think the interface should be condensed so you can see it all on one screen. Currently it is one long column and a huge amount of wasted space.

    :)
