Support » Plugin: Social Media Share Buttons » Article excerpt starts with “Share List” if I have social buttons at top of post

  • Resolved daydull


    Hi, thanks for this plugin. I do like the look and design of it and the setup is pretty simple.

    One problem I ran into was when I set the plugin to display the social buttons at the top of all posts, after that all of my article excerpts then started with the words “Share List”. Most of the posts don’t have a custom excerpt entered, it just uses the first few sentences of the article.

    Is there any way to fix this so this plugin doesn’t show that text in an excerpt? (Other than manually entering excerpts, which I don’t want to do for various reasons.)

    I believe I fixed it.

    I just went to edit the plugin in WordPress and searched for “Share List” in all of this plugin’s files. It was in 2 or 3 locations and I deleted that small section wherever I found it. For example I deleted the following from the file sgmbwidget.php

    <span class=”sgmbButtonListLabel’.@$data[‘id’].'”>Share List</span>

    Everything else seems to be working fine still and now my automatic post excerpts don’t start with “Share List”.

    Do you plan to update the plugin to fix this issue for everyone else (or if I were to install it on another site?)


    Dear @daydull,

    It’s great that you have find a solution for this issue!
    We’ll add it to our tasks for future updates, but I should be honest and tell you that we can’t estimate exact time when the update will be released with the fix.
