    Hi,

    I would like to use the share buttons similar to this site http://www.shockmansion.com, not only in the excerpts but also after the main post body.

    I have downloaded and activated AddThis share buttons. How do I get the buttons to show?

    Thanks

    my site is http://www.myfaction.com

    @myfaction: After you have installed and activated AddThis Share plugin, you have to configure the buttons from Settings > AddThis Share.

    Select the button style for both above and below the post from the basic settings. In advanced tab, you can fine tune more options. Save it, and check your blog. You will see the buttons. If it didn't work, let me know here.

    webrev, Do you have any other social sharing buttons enabled? I have added the addthis widget in my sidebar therefore it works fine on pages/menus but not posts?

    I have a different widget working on posts but I want the same social sharing options for page visitors.

    interesting

    @myfaction, I tried to get a copy of the theme you were using. It's a paid one and as of now I am not able to get an access to it. If you could, please try switching to a different theme to confirm it's a theme issue. We have some compatibility issues with few themes. I guess it's the same with you. We will be releasing an update in the coming week, adding compatibility to more themes.

    If you have a test site, I can login and check the theme code and may be fix the issue. You can mail me to srijith[AT]addthis.com

    Are you sure it is a theme problem? Addthis is not working on my pages either and we are both using different themes...

    @Vann Are you still having issues at the site? I couldn't see the buttons in your site. Not sure whether it's the issue or you have disabled the buttons.

    @myfaction: In the url you have provided, addthis buttons are displayed after the main post. If you have already configured it to show for excerpts and above the posts I guess there is some issue. I can assist you to resolve this. Can you provide access to the test/dev site if you have one? You can mail me to srijith[AT]addthis.com

    This is the second time you have asked for login details. The first you said you did not know what the problem was. I also see this string has been "resolved"? I fail to see how it is.
    The share buttons below my posts are not addthis buttons but rather RokSocailButtons. I added them and at the end of each post I add [socialbuttons]. I wanted to use the same buttons to keep consistency to the site. I.e. addthis share and addthis follow

    @myfaction: Sorry, I got confused. Yes, I got your theme verified. We are in progress for a generic fix which is scheduled to release later this week. This particular issue will be covered under it. I will provide you a pre-release copy of the plugin as soon as it is ready.

    I assume you have released the update as I had a plugin update in WP? It still does not work.

    @myfaction: Sorry to inform you that you may have to edit your theme file to print the buttons. We couldn't try it further as the theme is not in our collection.

    You can use

    <?php do_action('addthis_widget',$url , $title, $style);?>

    $url is the URL you wish to share. Generally, this should be get_permalink() if you are inside of the loop.
    $title is the title of the URL you want shared. Generally this should be get_the_title() if you are inside of the loop.

    For $style you can use a string 'above' or 'below' to choose the style you have configured for displaying in the AddThis settings.

    If you are not comfortable in editing your theme files, I can assist you there.
