    Went to activate my sharing, and the drop-down does not appear.

    What gives?

    Have you created a "Menu" ?

    Have you installed a sharing plugin?

    First things, first. Will install "Share This" and most likely, the 'sharing' drop-down will appear.

    I'm not sure exactly what sharing features you are looking for. I believe wordpress.COM has a built in sharing feature.

    Jetpack is a plugin for wordpress.ORG which brings in a load of features from .COM. There is a module within jetpack named 'Sharing'.

    I haven't used .COM ever, so I'm not certain the 2 are the same, but it's something you could look into if you like.

    Share This - activated
    Really simple Facebook Twitter share buttons - activated

    Really simple share - is there
    But Share This is NOT.

    "Once you have successfully installed and activated the ShareThis plugin. A link to a new settings page in the sidebar will be generated where you can customize the plugin."

    ArtShop - are you sure you have installed the correct plugin? There are 2 very similar plugins. The one you linked to is named ShareThis while the other that doesn't provide a settings menu is named as Share This (a space).

    If you look at your plugins page the correct sharing plugin should say

    Version 5.0.0 | By ShareThis, Manu Mukerji | Visit plugin site
