AddThis Social Sign In

    I got this plugin installed and successfully make it work for FB, Twitter, and Gplus. Well, 3 buttons shown at the bottom part of each blog post. All are working when user sign up at http://www.url/wp-admin. When user reading an article and at the comment section log in using his/her social FB and Gplus working fine. But twitter is not responding. The twitter button is there but when you click it nothing happens. It seems unusable.

    Here is my Science Blog for where plugin was installed.

    Funny thing, in my case the Twitter sign in is the only one working at the moment.
    Facebook and Google do actually show up, but after the "Authenticating" yellow box nothing happens, the page won't redirect and let the user log in.
    Someone got the same issue?

    Example article

    As you can see I had to completely remove the Facebook and Google sign in in the comment form. Pretty sure it's not the template either, I've tried it on a demo website and it works well.

    @LawHero, yes I do have that issue as well when I embed codes inside comment template which is located at public_html/wp-includes/comment-template.php which buttons are just good located at below "Leave a Reply." However, buttons are clickable but not refreshing so then I removed the short code of addthis and relocated it to my exact theme comments.php. The placement of buttons now located at my comment form at the very bottom part which is not ideal for readers. Temporarily, I deleted the plugin. I'm waiting for addthis to fix it. Guess, this plugin has a lot of issue right now.

    your suggestion was great, I really didn't try to put it elsewhere in the template (I know, sounds absurd). Now it seems to be working, but still wondering why Facebook and Google do not work when inclucled into the comment <form>, putting them elsewhere doesn't seem really user-friendly.
    Guess I'll disable it too for now, hoping they'll fix it!

    Yeah, let's wait for the developer to have it fix. My website almost crashed when I made some other experiment. Addthis Team please fix this for us. This would be the best social sign in if incase bugs will resolved.
