[resolved] AddToAny Plugin Issue (3 posts)

    I used to use social network sharing plugins at my site but decided i can live without them so i removed this plugin from the WordPress Admin and i also went into my PHPMyAdmin interface and removed all instances i could find from the WP_Options table.

    The problem is that part of the plugin just does not appear to want to be removed.

    I have Googled the subject matter and cannot find a way to get this off my site, so help would be great.

    The file is static.addtoany.com/menu/page.js and seems to be connected with mediadegrees a marketing firm or at least thats what the research i did indicates.

    Basically it's an unnecessary lookup that i wish to remove from the site and if anyone has information on how to get this file or cookie off my system i would be grateful.

    Ok i fixed this.

    It seems when you add Polldaddy polls to your site it also adds tracking related to AddToAny as they use it at their site and the code shows up when using their polls and quizzes embedded on the site.

    I removed Polldaddy and my page is a quarter of a second faster, not much and nothing i'd worry about but i'm happier for discovering where it was coming from.

    Hi, if you disable the option "'Share This' link" option in the WordPress poll editor, the AddToAny javascript file reference will not be called.
