Where is the Pinterest option?
By ,

The description states "including Pinterest icon". 2 months ago someone posted in the forum that they couldn't find how to configure it, 10 other people responded but the developer has not addressed it yet.

I installed this plugin in hope of using the shortcode. But there is no shortcode offered. Plus I am not seeing the social under my admin setting, instead there is an empty space that when I click on it goes to the social admin page. This might be due to a conflict with other plugins or something.

Otherwise nice job, thanks

Fast and easy
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have been looking for a plugin like this, for all day know. Actually, I installed this, and then had to re-install, because I could not see where I could configure. So after trying another plugin, that suddenly killed my site from loading Facebook, I went back to this. Finally, I found the config settings, which for some reason, is not located under SETTINGS in my WP site. But, I configured it, and like the options.

Floating bar doesn't show up

Maybe it's me but the floating bar doesn't show up. Otherwise, good plugin. You might look at other similar social plugins out there.

Scrollbar on icons under Chrome and Firefox
By , for WP 3.5.2

Works fine under IE but when using FF and Chrome the "Facebook Like" "Tweet like", etc., shows scroll bars under icons (which doesn't look nice).
Tried to tweak sociable.css but couldn't make it work...
A fix would be highly appreciated.

Used to be OK, now full of bugs!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I used to rely on this plugin because of its easy installation and usage. Unfortunately, it has now degraded to such a degree that I had to uninstall it.

Apart from the validation errors that it causes and that have been known for over a year, it creates empty menu entries in the admin panel and spreads malware. It is obvious that those issues won't be addressed any time soon.

Bloated & broken
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin is too large and despite frequent updates keeps missing a wide range of fixes involving G+, pinterest and others just to mention a few.

A quick glance at the support list shows that the same items keep cropping up again and again. There is a serious need for quality control and optimisation so that it doesn't slow down your site.

sociable.css doesn't validate for CSS3 http://wordpress.org/support/topic/sociablecss-doesnt-validate-for-css3?replies=2 is one of the more annoying ones

This Plugin is easy to set-up, easy to configure and works perfectly.

This is a great Plugin and I honestly have nothing negative to say about it.
