[resolved] FAils to activate (5 posts)

    i have had AddThis working perfectly but it has suddenly refused to activate -- normally is at bottom of blogs or pages.

    It works in the sidebar widget but that's not where i want it.

    Upgraded with a new version of plug-in 3.0.2 and WordPress 3.5.1 but it seems to be in the Save Changes... it keeps giving me error of ::>> ✖ The username, password, and profile combination you entered is invalid. <<<

    I've been and scoured thru the settings and profiles but can't find the problem.


    Any help would be appreciated!

    We have a validation in place for your AddThis authentication and the profile id. You have to enter your AddThis username and password at the fields in bottom of settings page in plugin, and the profile id in top right corner of the same page. You might be entering wrong combination. Please try logging into AddThis.com . Once logged in, go to publisher settings and check whether the profile id you are using in WordPress plugin is same as the one listed there.

    Thanks Sri, I'll give it a shot but I've already been thru those steps without success.
    I think I might just go back to scratch and trash everything (wordpress plugin) and start a new account. Might save a lot of angst. I really love Addthis and I need it!!! ...so i gotta get it back up and running! rgds bil
