    Can anyone help? Quite sometime ago I installed a plugin for social sharing on my blog - now I cant remove or edit it and I no longer want to use it. I have been through all my plugins, old and new, but it seems to have disappeared leaving me no option to edit.....any ideas? It appears on every post

    FTP into your site (or use whatever file management application your host provides) & delete the plugin's folder inside wp-content/plugins.

    Try resetting the plugins folder by phpMyAdmin.

    It could be that your theme has sharing buttons hard coded in and is not part of a plugin.
