    I've uploaded the whole folder but firefox will not load the pictures, it just loads the text. When I open it in another web browser (like IE or safari) it shows its trying to load the pictures but they are empty

    the site is http://www.resumeplay.net

    thanks for the help :D

    Quick-and-dirty howto:
    1. Update plugin
    2. Comment this
    //$sociablepluginpath = plugins_url('', __FILE__).'/';
    3. Insert this (function Edit in Admin interface) from the old plugin
    $sociablepluginpath = WP_CONTENT_URL.'/plugins/'.plugin_basename(dirname(__FILE__)).'/';
    4. Ready.

    That can be an compatibility issue.

    the plug-in is trying to use:
    /wp-content/plugins/images/email_link.png

    instead of the correct url:
    /wp-content/plugins/sociable/images/email_link.png

    The fix from aka-es will not work unfortunately.

    It's not just pics. WP also fails to load sociable.css.

    This latest version (today) isn't fixable (for me) - going back to past version with icons showing.
    :)
    It's a great plugin, thank you.

    does anyone know where the previous version is available from? It appears that 2 versions were quickly put out one after the other.

    I had to replace the line of code in the plugin where it determines the path, back to the way it used to do it before the current update.

    Specifically, in sociable.php, near the beginning, I changed the line of code back to this:

    // Guess the location
    $sociablepluginpath = WP_CONTENT_URL.'/plugins/'.plugin_basename(dirname(__FILE__)).'/';

    from this:

    // Determine the location
    $sociablepluginpath = plugins_url('', __FILE__).'/';

    That seems to have made the icons appear again.

    Thanks for all the comments everybody, but sadly none of this worked out for me. I use the atahualpa theme but shouldn't be a problem.

    I changed the code... nothing... I even went back to an older version (3.3.1) and changed the code around... nothing.

    This is such an awesome plugin that i really want to work with but its being stubborn for me. let me know if there are any other fixes you can think of

    Sorry for the rookie question, but how do I access the sociable.php file mentioned by ardee00 in order to change this code below. is it within the wp admin dashboard, or via ftp to the actual plugin? specific instructions are appreciated. thanks in advance:

    ardee00 thanks! Worked for me on a WordPress 2.7.1 installation.

    Using WP 2.7.1 The last two updates of Sociable have gotten worse and worse. This last update shows a vertical list; instead of the Horizontal list that we used to have. And, this time, there are no images.

    Never had a problem til now. Tried lots of other plugins of this type in the past, and Sociable is definitely my choice. Not so sure now.

    I hate to complain about a free plugin, but it used to be such a good plugin. I'd pay if I had to. I hate to start looking again for another plugin. Maybe an patch or another update might come along pretty quick. Will Disable for now. Not worth the time to go in and make my own changes to the code. One purpose of plugins is so we don't have to continually edit code to get a specific functionality. That way, we can spend our valuable time on other activities.

    I am using WP+BP, latest versions of both. Prior versions of Socialble worked fine, but I've had to deactivate it sitewide because of the issues noted earlier.

    @ardee00 - thanks for the fix. However I'm not in a hurry and will wait for an update to the plugin.

    I am using Sociable 3.3.4 on WP 2.7.1 with a Custom Hybrid Child Theme FWIW.

    Same issue - no images just text.

    Same Issue - No Images, vertical text links, and every upgrade seems to get worse. I will Disable for now. I hate to complain about anything free (I would pay for this plugin) but Sociable has become more of a problem than its really worth.

    I would tell any new WP users to not install Sociable and to look somewhere else for a similar plugin. If you do install, you will dread every time the plugin needs to be upgraded.

    Hmmm.. the fix posted above worked for me. But I am spotting a pattern with the 2.7.1 versions being reported lol

    I guess all us cautious types waiting for 2.8.1 are to blame ;-)

    nommo I tried upgrading to 2.8 and it screwed things up as expected. Sticking with 2.7.1

    I am using 2.7.1. Same behavior - css file not loading. And the patch given by ardee00 DID work for me!

    I am using the company-website-001 theme but heavily customized.

    ardee00, thanks for the fix, however...

    Some of the icons are still not showing up even though it's no longer vertical, and most of them are showing up.

    Joost, did you not test this with 2.7.whatever versions before the last update? My blog looked like shit until I found the fix for it here. Many complaints from my readers. <insert roll-eyes smiley here/>

    Missing icons are Sphinn, Furl, Spurl, Twit This and Scuttle. There may be more, but of the icons I've selected, those are missing. Any idea how to regain those images?

    In checking my other blog, I see that YahooMyWeb, and Pounce are also missing their icon pictures.

    When I add ardee00's line of code, i get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in D:\Hosting\3152827\html\wp-content\plugins\sociable\sociable.php on line 32

    Can anyone help me out with this one? The code is in the correct place as I followed the directions and have since re-checked severyal times???
