[resolved] Sharing Buttons not appearing on Front Page (8 posts)

    Hi,
    I can't get the Sharing buttons to appear on my Front Page. They appear just fine on blog posts.
    All 4 options under Settings -> Sharing -> Show sharing buttons on.. are checked, including Front Page.
    I am using theme Sunspot 1.0.1, but I found the same issue on zeePersonal 1.1 and Twenty Ten 1.3 as well.
    I am using I.E 9. Clearing cache has not helped either.

    Please help!
    Regards,
    Rickie

    sharing buttons show up on all posts on your front page. the ones showing: email, facebook, tweet, and print.
    I'm on a Mac and using SeaMonkey browser.
    IExplorer almost always has these problems. suggest you use Firefox browser. good for both PCs and Macs.

    Thanks for trying. I feel I wasn't clear on my problem. The buttons appear on the posts on the Front Page. I would like to see sharing buttons for the website itself - as part of the right column where I have all other "general" menu and links.
    Is that possible?

    You need to add widgets for that. check plugins for widgets, sidebar, social media.
    there are numerous ways to do that.

    You can see some of the ways I did it on my two blogs:

    Thanks! I took your advice and installed EP Social Widget, which was the simplest of them all!

    I have the assumed problem.

    The sharing buttons show up on my posts, but only when I click on the actual post and it takes me to the post page. But I want the sharing buttons to appear at the end of my posts on the FRONT page, as well as the category pages.

    Help??

    My website is new, http://www.coconouveau.com.
