[addthis] "Custom / Build your own" - how?! (6 posts)

    I must be blind because I simply cannot find a sample code or explanation for "Custom / Build your own". How do I do it?! Preferably without manually adding the buttons to my templates.

    I want Facebook, Twitter and Google +1 WITH counts all next to each other. Unfortunately there is no option for that in the updated version.

    I am trying to figure out the same things and I can't find any guides anywhere.

    The service codes are on this page.

    In the Basic tab of the plugin's settings, do the following:

    1. Click "additional style options" (available for top and bottom separately)
    2. Click "custom/build your own"
    3. Turn on the "services" tickbox and enter your preferred services (mine are "facebook_like,tweet,google_plusone")
    4. Turn on the "more" option, which displays the orange plus sign (optional, but good idea)


    See sample results on here.

    I get as far as Step 3 - I don't see a "services" box anywhere. Where can I find it?!

    @galbaras instructions' are good but here's what step #3 means:

    Below the "custom/build your own" radio button is a checkbox for "Services to always show" - check this option and then put your preferred services in this box.

    (in case anyone knows more - I couldn't get the "Custom Service list" on the Advanced settings tab to work for this at all even though it seems like that's where this should be implemented.)

    I updated to the lastest version yesterday and I now see that infamous service box, etc.
