    I have placed the shortcode on my page however the search buttons do not appear.

    Please see here - http://brokenvault.com/portfolio/ben-rix/

    The middle section - share this artist - is where the shortcode is placed.

    Could you go to Pages > All Pages in your dashboard, click on that page, and make sure the sharing checkbox is checked for that page?

    Let me know if it helps.

    I am having this same problem. I put the shortcode in the template for the desired page, then made sure that I had a checkmark in the sharing checkbox in the page as per your instructions. It isn't working.

    I have the shortcode executing this way in my template file, btw:

    echo do_shortcode('[jpshare]');

    Thank you for any help you can give me!

    @julie Instead of using do_shortcode, and if you do not use the shortcode itself in your posts, you can delete my plugin and use <?php eho sharing_display(); ?> to display the sharing buttons anywhere within a loop in your template files.

    Of course, Jetpack has to be activated, and the Sharing module should be active and configured under Settings > Sharing in your dashboard.

    Thanks for the quick and helpful answer. I tried what you suggested:

    1. Disabled your plug-in
    2. Added <?php echo sharing_display(); ?> inside my loop -- just before the content.
    3. I verified that sharing was on.
    4. Still no icons.

    I currently do not have a checkmark next to pages because I do not want the share icons to show on all of them -- only a few select pages. So, is that what the problem is -- I need to have a checkmark next to pages?

    If so, do you know a good way to get these share icons to appear on only selected pages?

    Thanks again,

    Oh, never mind. I'm stupid. I just unchecked the sharing box in the individual pages that I do not want to have it show up -- duh! Very stupid of me. Thanks again for your help!
