Jetpack Sharing Butttons Shortcode (2 posts)

    I'd love to use this shortcode on my website home page.

    The native Jetpack code puts the sharing buttons in between 2 widgets from another plugin -- I want it below them.

    So I changed the settings to de-select showing sharing buttons on the home page

    I put the shortcode after the 2nd widget -- but no buttons appear.

    Is this because the setting is overriding the shortcode -- or is there another way to get this to work?

    Thanks

    It turns out that the shortcode doesn't override the plugin settings. So if you have Jetpack's sharedaddy or 'sharing' settings 'off' for the page, the shortcode won't display the sharing buttons.

    This is true whether you use the individual sharing settings on the page, or the plugin settings on the settings page.

    That's too bad, because the plugin can't work where it's needed - which is precisely where the Sharedaddy tools don't work.

    Hmm... is there any way to fix this?
