Custom service list? (13 posts)

    I try to use the custom service list function, but nothing whatsoever happens to the services showing up. No matter if I deactivate/activate, uninstall/re-install the plugin, change button type, clear/deactivate cache and other possible plugins in conflict with it.

    I have a slight memory of if working just a short while ago when I tried it out on a previous installation of the same theme etc. But no more.

    Hello @MattyX,

    Share me the custom code you are trying to use. I am sure I can assist you here. If you prefer, you can mail me to srijith[AT]addthis.com. It will be helpful if you can share the site you are trying to make it work as well so that I can check what's going wrong.

    It wasn't more complicated than the shortcodes at your page, separated by commas like: facebook_like,twitter,tumblr and some more. Nothing changes.

    I'll drop you a mail.

    I have the same problem as well. I've entered the appropriate codes into the "custom service list" but my site doesn't show the buttons that I want to show.

    I might share with you, that I got to know that "this function is currently disabled", but it will be re-enabled again in some update.

    It took me quite some efforts to squeeze that out of one of their guys. It's not like I'll send their office anthrax spores due to this, I was just glad to get to know. I wonder why people just can't be straight with you, and prevent you from wasting time and energy trying to solve something which can't be solved?

    So, expecting it to be solved in some future update. Not much more to say, I just wished they could be more open about such things instead of ignoring questions or "beating around the bush" with all sorts of weird pseudo-support questions and excuses.

    Hello, the functionality had a bug in one release, and it was fixed in one of the release after that. The current version available for download have the custom service list fixed.

    Please share your blog url here with the custom service list you have applied. I can verify why it's not working.

    @MattyX: Sorry if you had trouble in getting a timely response from us, but be assured that we are trying to respond to all issues reported here as soon as possible.

    FYI - I'm on the latest version of the plugin.

    My site's address is http://www.whyisuckatguitar.com

    The sharing buttons are only in the articles, so you'll have to go into one of the articles.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Hey @dvuksanovich: I checked your site and it seems like the custom buttons are available.

    I can see from the code that you are using

    facebook_like,google_plusone,reddit,stumbleupon,digg

    as the custom service list configuration. Please note that facebook_like/google_plusone are not supported in custom service list (This is not clearly defined in the documentation and I have reported to make the correction).

    PS: Custom service list allows you to configure the buttons in the drop down menu (that orange share button), not the buttons directly printed.

    Thanks for taking a look. I really don't care about configuring the buttons in the dropdown menu. I want to control what buttons appear right on the page.

    ... and I do apologize for hijacking this thread. I'll start my own if I need more help.

    I agree with dvuksanovich. I don't care about the dropdown either. I'd like to configure what people actually see.

    Okay I got it! For the custom buttons, you can use the custom code section. Configure your preferred buttons from here: https://www.addthis.com/get/sharing (Use "Disable and select your own buttons" option to hand pick the buttons)

    Use the generated code in the "Custom Code" section in WordPress AddThis Share plugin option. You need the HTML part only.

    For example, if the code generated from AddThis Site is:

    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
    <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_pinterest_pinit"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"></a>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-517014c03ffc324b"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->

    you have to strip the javascript part and use the html for buttons as:

    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
    <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_pinterest_pinit"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"></a>
    </div>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->

    Considering the feedback from the support forum, we will be providing a more flexible configuration option (as we have in the AddThis Site) in this plugin soon. Till then, please use custom code to hand pick the buttons you wish to show in the site.
