    Hello,

    ShareThis icons show correctly for posts and pages.

    However in *Categories*, the icons display TWICE for each post.

    How do I correct this so the icons only display *once* for each post in *categories*?

    Thank you!

    I am having the same issue as bloguser2012. At first I thought it might be related to the issue with buttons not showing up on individual posts due to the changes to Jetpack with Publicize and Media Sharing, but I have deactivated both of those modules and I still have doubled icons on my categories pages. For the time being I have reactivated the publicize module; however, if this needs to be deactivated for troubleshooting, please let me know.

    Hi Sir,
    Sometimes the template being used for a wordpress blog results in some issues.
    You can add the buttons manually to your wordpress blog .
    Here are the steps:
    Sharethis script and span tags go on the page where you want the buttons to appear and they also determine what kind of button appears as well as what URL and title it shares. You will have to put 'script tags' in your Main index template(index.php) and 'span tags' in Single Post template(single.php).

    Here is the basic span for just the ShareThis button: <span class=""st_sharethis"" st_title='<?php the_title(); ?>' st_url='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' displayText=""ShareThis""></span>

    You can change the class of the span to determine the button that appears. For example class=""st_twitter"" will make a twitter icon and class=""st_email_vcount"" will make a email vertical counter button.

    However, adding code in index.php and single.php will not display sharethis buttons on the blog page but will show buttons whenever an individual post is opened.
    If you wish to display sharethis buttons on the blog page ,you will have to put 'span tags' in (loop.php).

    In loop.php,
    1. put span tags just above the line "<div class="entry-utility">" to display buttons at the end of each post on the blog page.

    <span class='st_twitter' ></span>
    <span class='st_facebook' ></span>
    <span class='st_yahoo' ></span>
    <span class='st_gbuzz' ></span>
    <span class='st_email' ></span>
    <span class='st_sharethis' ></span>
    <div class="entry-utility">

    2. to display buttons at the beginning of each post on the blog page,put span tags just below the lines

    <h2 class="entry-title">" title="<?php printf( esc_attr__( 'Permalink to %s', 'twentyten' ), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) ); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <div class="entry-meta">
    <?php twentyten_posted_on(); ?>
    </div><!-- .entry-meta -->
    <?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>

    Hope this helps.
    Regards,
