[resolved] Sexy Bookmarks Bar (6 posts)

    I have searched the forum here and cannot find this specific answer.

    Can I turn off the Sexy Bookmarks sharing bar at the bottom of a post / page and still have the Twitter / Facebook / Google + sharing options at the top (or where ever designated).

    I see where the options SHOULD let me but when I check the "NO" on enable sexy bookmarks the little share buttons at the top go away. I just want those at the top as seen here. http://oursimpletraining.com/, but no buttons on the bottom of the post OR anywhere on the post.

    Just the little ones at the top only and MAYBE the classic icons on the bottom.

    What are the correct settings?

    Hi Jen,

    I could tell you how to accomplish this, but it would require some manual placement of code, and as we are about to retire this version of our plugin, in favor of the one we have in active development, having you go through the steps may be more trouble than it's worth.

    Now, a better option would be to transition over to our latest release where you have many more button style options and finer control over the placement of the apps we offer.

    We've completely rewritten the share buttons app along with the entire plugin to offer a cleaner interface, more customization options and greater flexibility in tailoring the sharing experience as well as a easier setup process to get you rolling.

    Let me know if you run into any problems!

    You are using old version (v6), please update to v7...

    This feature is a little bugged, or I had some issues with this... I think this is one of the main reason why this feature is not present in v7 anymore. Maybe in future release @Celeste?

    It wasn't exactly a bug, but because of how the settings were tied together, the Additional Buttons set was an extension of SexyBookmarks and dependent upon some of the options. It wasn't the most efficient coding, but we've worked to make everything very standalone in the new version so that it is easier to customize what appears where and also target apps specifically if you want to disable certain things on individual posts but not all features.

    The plugin has been rewritten to be very developer & designer-friendly. :) It ends up you actually have many more customization options available to you than before and much better control over how our plugin integrates with your blog.

    It is not bugged, but the functionality was sometimes really bad... I use another plugin for this, but it would be nice to have this in this plugin together

    Hey Guys,

    As @eldenroot and @celeste suggested, try v7. v7 allows you to customize buttons on top of the post and bottom independently to get exactly what you're looking for. You can have classic style small buttons on top and sexy at the bottom, nothing below, etc. v7 also comes with a variety of new theming options!

    Get v7: http://wordpress.org/plugins/shareaholic/
