    I have installed Hupso Share Buttons in my wordpress site and I like it very well. But it does not work last hour. Is it something wrong or just making upgrade? Thank you

    Yes, there is an upgrade going on, which is taking some more time than expected. I expect it will be back and fully operational in the next few hours.

    The plugin seems to lag on all pages that it is used because your server is down. Why does the plugin need to contact your server to work?

    Please don't use the excuse that dot.png is needed for loading .js or keeping the .js up to date without updating the plugin.

    Upgrade is complete. Buttons should be loading correctly now.

    I have noted this previously -- this plugin needs to fail in a more graceful way. If your server goes down, it should not bog down pages where the plugin is installed.

    Thanks for the work you've done on this plugin. I hope you can improve it so this does not continue to happen.

    Yes, you are right. I will try to rewrite the plugin so that it will load asynchronously. This way it will not bog down pages even if the server is down.

    please write it, that logo's are loaded from own server\hosting. And only make contact with your server when absolutly necessary. It gives a lot of time lag

    Hi there,
    despite you saying the upgrade has completed I am still having problems with the buttons not showing properly and my website is loading really really slowly on pages where Hupso is included so have had to deactivate the plugin.

    Didn't realise that the plugin was making a call to your server and it could impact my website. Not sure if this is possible but agree with fort123 is there any way the logos can be loaded from my own server without any reliance on your server.

    @karenaj - Maybe you could do as I have done and simply deactivate the plugin until such time as the hupso server or plugin is fixed :-)

    There's no share buttons that way, but your site(s) will work.

    We have deactivated the plugin as well. I was afraid this would happen because the plugin has been performing really bad lately.

    Its a free service anyway so donĀ“t have much to complain, but it would have been nice to have a paid reliable version.

    As I wrote in another thread today, and as others say here - hupso.com being down, almost means our sites being down. And I guess it's a quite legitimate reason to move away from this plugin. I like it otherwise, but I can't be dependent on some other website to be up for mine to work properly, it's the main reason I picked Hupso's buttons to start with - because they are (usually) way faster than other services who force your site to make a dozen nonsense requests upon load.

    So, yes - at least make it load totally asynchronously, or to even load without your site at all if it's down.

    Would really like to know when this will be fixed.

    Have disabled the plugin on our blog but we also have the buttons all over our main site and would be a lot of work to take them all out.

    Hope you can get this sorted as soon as possible.

    Good luck!

    There are some DNS propagation delays. The buttons are working properly for majority of the world, except for China and some parts of Europe and US. I guess the buttons will be working properly from all locations in the next 6-12 hours when all ISPs update their DNS servers.

    If your site it slow, I suggest that you deactivate the plugin, wait for 24 hours and then turn them back on.

    I thank you all for your feedback and suggestions. And I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I will try to make the buttons more robust in the future as many of you have suggested.

    Thanks a lot!

    One suggestion: Would it be possible to put the buttons in order like the non wordpress version.

    Really would like the G+ at the beginning or end.

    Thanks Danny
