    You should be able to add the sharing buttons there without using my plugin. Try following the tutorial here:
    http://jetpack.me/2013/06/10/moving-sharing-icons/

    You’ll notice that the code given there is similar, but with a tiny difference from the one given in the iThemes codex: the filters used to remove the sharing buttons should be hooked into loop_start instead of loop_end.

    Hi Jeremy – thanks for your help.

    I followed the instructions in the article from Jetpack you provided. I am using a PHP widget in the footer of the site. For some reason, the sharing buttons are not showing, just the PHP code I inserted.

    Here’s what I added to functions.php in the child theme:
    /**
    Jetpack Sharing buttoons
    */
    function jptweak_remove_share() {
    remove_filter( ‘the_content’, ‘sharing_display’,19 );
    remove_filter( ‘the_excerpt’, ‘sharing_display’,19 );
    if ( class_exists( ‘Jetpack_Likes’ ) ) {
    remove_filter( ‘the_content’, array( Jetpack_Likes::init(), ‘post_likes’ ), 30, 1 );
    }
    }

    add_action( ‘loop_start’, ‘jptweak_remove_share’ );

    Any clues? http://victorybox.org/

    Thanks,
    -Cat

    I am using a PHP widget in the footer of the site.

    Could you point me to the plugin in the repository, or a site where I can download the plugin use to create the Widget Content Post Type and the PHP widgets? I’d like to run some tests, so I can give you the exact code to use to display the sharing buttons there.

    Thanks!

    Widget Content post type comes with iThemes Builder theme.

    Here is the one I am using on this site: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80424310/Builder-Depot-5.0.14%20copy.zip

    And here is the PHP widget:

    Thank you Jeremy!!

    I had a look at the theme, and it seems to include an option that will solve all your issues.

    In your dashboard, go to My Theme > Settings > Widget Content, and check the following option:

    Use the the_content filter to format Widget Content entries.

    Once you save your changes, the sharing buttons will appear below each widget content entry.

    You can now deactivate the Sharing buttons shortcode for Jetpack plugin.
