    I have addtoany subscribe and share both installed in a website and WordPress. Something wrong with static.addtoany.com page, very slow to load, so the message "waiting for static.addtoany.com is eveywhere, and stopping loading of other scripts after it ...

    Please look into it ...

    Same problem. I had to remove the code as I was losing a lot of money not having my posts up.

    astrasuite: do you know how long it's been doing this? I had just noticed this morning but hadn't been on my sites for a few days.

    I see addtoany's site is down.

    This is the scary thing about relying on developer's website's uptime. I have AddtoAny on a couple sites that make a helluva lot of money, and when I looked this morning they were virtually unusable just due to this plugin. I hope it was just an hour or two.

    A couple of hours now ... I have deactivated the plugins for now. But I can't deactivate those in the website (not wordpress) without doing some work.

    I am looking for alternatives at the moment - Sociable, AddThis, Socialize ... must be fast loading, and not holding back the rest.

    I asked Lockerz before how to load asynchronously (both
    Subscribe and Share together) and in the footer so it doesn't prevent the other plugins from working, but no answer. Such a basic thing for performance improvements and no answer.

    I really try to have few plugins as much as possible for that reason, one never knows when these plugin makers lose interest and quit. They don't earn anything out of it after all. Lockerz is different, it must be earning money with the secret programs they inject (thankfully, I have a plugin that prevents their injected code from loading, so I don't mind).

    I posted 1-2 days ago about Twitter button, g+ share and google+ buttons no longer displaying (though they are selected in the setup page to be displayed).

    Still no answer. Are any of you having this problem? I have used AddToAny for a couple years now, but am also thinking I might have to find a new alternative.

    AddToAny has long been one of my favorites, because over the years, they have always debugged problems very quickly. Not sure what is happening now?

    Thanks for the reports. There have been some other reports of slowness being caused by issues with some upstream providers. Most users are unaffected and work is being done to resolve this for everybody.

    micropat:

    Is there a way for the plugin to be used in a way that if your servers are having problems, that the display of the page does not halt where Addtoany is supposed to display? If not, I can't really use it: scared the heck out of me this morning seeing that none of my pages were showing. If I had not checked I'd have lost about 20,000 page views today, all with real money being generated.

    So, could you address that please? I like your plugin and would love to continue using it.

    Thanks, working again. Not easy to find an alternative, especially Subscribe :)

    Thanks astrasuite :)

    @slobizman the sharing plugin actually is optimized to load asynchronously; however, the Subscribe plugin is still synchronous.
