Copy - Paste issue due to change in ShareThis plugin (4 posts)

    Since today (Feb 27, 2013), the ShareThis plugin started pasting - "See more at: ....&action=edit#sthash.mOyzIP9P.dpuf" in the WordPress edit screens without a warning.

    According to JesperB, you can disable this new functionality by adding the following JavaScript after the ShareThis-code has initialized:
    stLight.options({doNotCopy:true});

    The description for this new functionality can be found here: ShareThis CopyNShare Settings

    This is all great but what bugs me that this is also activated in the backend of WordPress. I can easily add that line to the theme of my site, but how do I add it to the backend of WordPress when my theme is not loaded?

    A client noticed this as well on their site today. Unbelievably annoying.

    Setting the doNotCopy:true works, thankfully.

    ShareThis has proved themselves untrustworthy.

    Thanks for solution. It worked. Though I would appreciate if plugin creators at least warned about something like this...

    I have the same issue. It is not linked to a "sharethis"-plugin, but to the remote loaded sharethis-script.

    So if you have embedded any of the buttons, hardcoded of via a plugin, you'll be affected.
