AddThis button's alignment / stats out of whack with recent update? (4 posts)

    Dear AddThis Support,

    Yes, I'm another that's wondering if the recent update has caused some problems?

    In my case, not only did it make the buttons' stats out of whack (i.e. fb's 9 likes and shares=47 in all of the posts whereas it should only be a few each and a different amount for each post, etc) but also that it made the buttons out of alignment to the point that I had to temporarily deactivate the plugin as to not to make the page look messy.

    I suspect that it may have something to do with the "$addthis_new_styles = array(" codes, so you could look in there.

    I also currently have the following code in the setting (i.e. without the ".", of course)

    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <.div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style ">
    <.a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"><./a>
    <.a class="addthis_button_tweet"><./a>
    <.a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"><./a>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->

    And the following in the footer:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=dansbanners"></script>

    And the following in my site's stylesheet:

    .addthis_default_style {
    float: left;
    margin-left: 30px;
    margin-top: 10px;

    And if you're wondering where the buttons are supposed to be, it's in the gray bar below the posts:


    Hope you could help. I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

    To Your Success,
    Daniel "Dansbanners"

    P.S. All of the above codes, settings, etc, were working prior to the most recent update.

    I think you have disabled the buttons now. We are working on a fix, and an intermediate build is available at our development branch ( http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/addthis.zip ) . I suggest you to try it out, and let me know if the problem exist.

    Ok, I tried the zip file from the branch and it now works! : )

    You could now also see the buttons on the bottom of the posts with its correct alignment and stats:


    Thanks, I appreciate it!
