Why is "Share" not an option under Settings at my dashboard (9 posts)

    I'd like to find the Share option under Settings so that I can publicize to FB and Twitter. Right now I'm using HootSuite to do that, but would like the immediacy of a Share function at the dashboard. It is not listed under my Settings menu. Here's what's there: General; Writing; Reading; Discussion; Media; Privacy; Permalinks; Register Plus Redux; Subscribe 2.

    When I open each of these, there is also nothing about Share in any of these settings (which I didn't expect, but wanted to be sure I wasn't missing it).

    Thanks for what you can tell me.

    P.S. My theme is Misty Look. My blog, http://www.inspiritualwonder.us, is a wordpress.org blog.

  3. Because it's not a part of WordPress. You can build it into your theme or use a plugin, but it's not natively part of WP.

    Interesting. The WordPress info about this shows the diagrams of the Settings boxes as if it'salready there, and writes about it as if it is.

    Thanks much.

    You sure you're not looking at WordPress.COM stuff?

    Yes, as I mentioned in my P.S. following my post, I am at wordpress.org, which obviously explains why this isn't on my dashboard. Thanks.

    The information I read was maybe in a What's New section on the main page of Help and getting started info.

    We're just trying to check that this info was on wordpress.com and not wordpress.org

  9. I know YOU are at wordpress.org, I'm trying to sort out if the INFO you read is at wordpress.org or wordpress.com :)
