    Hello
    We also have an issue with this plugin running WordPress 3.4.1.
    Our live wordpress site is running 3.3.2 and it works fine. We have a test platform setup offline, so that we can test upgrades and changes before going live.
    On testing the upgrade to WordPress 3.4.1, the AddThis icons no longer show.

    Our blog homepage only shows the blog post excerpts, rather than the full post. The AddThis icons do NOT show on our homepage anymore, but do show if you go to the full blog post.

    I have discovered, that the issue is with excerpts only, regardless of the template used.

    In the code for "index.php", we have the code "<?php the_excerpt(); ?>". If this code is changed to "<?php the_content(); ?>", which shows the full blog post on the homepage, the AddThis icons show up!

    I have posted directly on the AddThis support forums, but have not a response yet that helps solve the problem.

    Any help will be appreciated, as we want to keep on the latest version of Workpress where possible.
    Thanks

    Apologies for the delay.

    @graycreative and @nesta747, can you explain your problem? What isn't working? Just not showing up or creating an error?

    @russ_s By design we do not modify the_excerpt unless you set "Show AddThis on excerpts" to true in the Advanced tab of the Settings page. Does that resolve your problem?

    Best,
    Matt

    Matt thanks for your reply.

    We have the "Show AddThis on excerpts" set to true on the Advanced Tab. The issue is the AddThis icons do not show up on excerpts.
    This appears to be regardless of which template is used.

    I have to-date only attempted to upgrade WordPress to 3.4.1 on our test platform, as i need to know all is working correctly before i upgrade the live blog site.

    Thanks Russ.

    I also have the issue of icons not showing up. I'm showing the_content() but I use "more" tags occasionally to generate a read more button. I thought it was an issue of not calling wp_footer(), but I've tried adding that to no avail.

    Thanks.

    @drokkon Can you post a link to a page that demonstrates the problem? Or barring that, could you share your theme with me or some other code that I could use to set up a problem site locally? (matt at addthis dot com)

    @russ_s Is your test platform publicly addressable?

    Best,
    Matt

    Hi Matt
    MY test platform is not public unfortunatly, it is local to a machine.
    However, i have disabled the AddThis plugin and am now using "Social Sharing Toolkit", which is ultimatly more configurable and works fully with Wordress 3.4.1.
    I have since upgraded my live blog to WordPress 3.4.1 and all is good.
    Thanks anyway...

    Sorry we couldn't help you, Russ. What features in particular from SST would have been nice to have in our plugin?

    SST gives you the ability to add three types of Facebook sharing buttons and also allows you to pick what social buttons you want to show. Therefore you can have as few, or as many as you like. Also it gives you the ability to re-order the buttons, so you can show them it a chosen order.
    I have not removed AddThis, just disabled it. If the AddThis plugin begins to work correctly on Excerpts in WordPress 3.4.1 at a later date i may re-enable it, as we use AddThis plugin on our Joomla website.

    Cool. We do support that custom ordering through the plugin as an advanced option, but we believe our personalized ordering for each user tends to have higher throughput.

    We'll definitely let you know when we figure out your excerpt problem!

    My icons aren't showing up on posts, but only on pages, or other boxes i check in advanced settings. But not on posts at all.

    The sharing icons aren't showing for me on Posts either (WP ver 3.4.1 and Plugin ver 2.4.3). Loved the Plugin when it worked so would love for this to be fixed.

    @americangreenroofing and @ecksteing, can you link to your sites?

    @ecksteing did the icons suddenly disappear with the update?

    @matt Yes, the icons disappeared after the latest update. The icons should be appearing at the top and bottom of any of the individual Posts at http://eckstein.id.au/blog/
    Thanks

    @lucidnz Luke, it looks like it might just be a JS error (your body has an undefined load function). Try removing onload="initialize" from your theme's body tag:

    <body ... onload="initialize()">

    @ecksteing Hmm, yeah, it's definitely not being output there. Can you send me a screen shot of your basic and advanced config? matt at addthis dot com. Thanks!

    @russ_s I was able to set up a blog with this problem. Tell me if this mimics your setup:

    - example.com/ - home page, no sharing desired
    - example.com/blog - page template with a blog excerpt loop.

    If I just enabled excerpts but did not enable the "home page" checkbox, nothing showed up -- because WordPress considers that /blog template to be the "front page" and right now we consider "home page" and "front page" synonymous although technically they're not. If it's really easy for you to test, I'd be curious to know if enabling the homepage and excerpt display resolved your problem, or if the buttons still didn't display after excerpts even with homepage checked.

    Hi Matt
    Our setup is not quite how you mention above.

    We have 1 lot of FTP space / webspace. Within this webspace is our website and blog, in the following configuration:
    ourdomain.com/ - main website run using Joomla
    ourdomain.com/blog/ - blog site run using WordPress

    The homepage to our blog, is a list of blog posts using excerpts. We do not have a static page as our homepage on the blog - we have our Joomla based website for that. Each part of our website has its own database.

    I have checked in my test environment and i have both the "hompage" and "excerpts" tickboxes enabled on the Advanced tab within the AddThis settings. If i disable the "homepage" option it makes no difference, the AddThis icons still don't appear.

    Interesting. Would you feel comfortable emailing me your theme as a zip? I'd love to be able to reproduce the problem our dev environment.

    I am using the "Red Modern" theme, which is freely available via the WordPress built in theme search.

    However, i don't believe it matters which theme you use. I have even tried the built in themes you get with WordPress as default. If you change the way it displays blog posts (i.e. change "<?php the_content(); ?>" to "<?php the_excerpt(); ?>" in the code), the AddThis buttons disapear.

    I have even followed a online tutorial to create my own very basic theme and when displaying excerpts no AddThis buttons show.

    @russ_s I've updated our development version with a possible fix--the developer of the excerpt functionality is no longer actively contributing, but I think my change makes sense. I'm going to talk to him and regress it to make sure it doesn't break something else, but if you'd like you're more than welcome to try it out now!

    Actually @russ_s I noticed something else, which is that in the production plugin (2.4.3), excerpts are only set to display if you've enabled buttons at the BOTTOM of each post. Can you confirm that was or was not the case?

    Hi Every one.
    How do I set to show the buttos at the bottom of the post? (in summary blog post option).

    @leo4all, you can set it from your admin settings. Navigate to Settings > Addthis. There you will have an option "Choose the sharing tool to display below the post". Pick the right one you want and hit save.

    Incase you want to show it along excerpts in home page, switch to Advanced tab and select Excerpts.

    Let me know if it didn't work.

    Hi @srijith.v
    - I have enable the first option at Settings > Addthis
    "Choose the sharing tool to display above the post"

    - Also the excerpts option is enable,
    - And in the template-blog.php file force excerpts to show

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    Using WordPress 3.4.1.
    Addthis Version 2.4.3

    But still doesn't appear.

    Hello. I got two pages:

    1 - http://www.aotopo.com.br/servicos/
    2 - http://www.aotopo.com.br/blog/

    In both pages I inserted The addThis plugin.
    Local testing is perfect for both, but online just the first one is working.

    P.S. In 2nd the addThis plugin is located at post-content ( just before the "Leia Mais" buttons.

    If somebody knows why, please help me.
    Thanks

    @Erick: I couldn't find addthis_widget.js being imported to the page. How did you add AddThis? Did you use the plugin available for WordPress?

    You will need to include http://s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js to the page to render the buttons.
