[resolved] Error in IE 6, 7 and 8: Invalid character in addthis_widget.js (2 posts)

    Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 showed an error when using the AddThis plugin 1.6.4:
    Invalid character in addthis_widget.js (Line: 1, Character: 1, Code 0)
    URI: http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#username=xyz

    I have fixed this by replacing the # with ? in addthis_social_widget.php on lines 338 and 354.

    I'm still getting this error today on version 2.1.2. The code to be replaced in the above solution is any reference to addthis_widget.js, you replace the parameter # with ?.

    However, after doing this I just get another set of errors.

    Even when manually adding the AddThis buttons to the site without the plug-in, I get these errors.

    Any fix for this?
