  • @omarfaizan – sorry you’re having problems with the plugin, we’re still working out some issues. I see that code is being inserted into your page, but unfortunately, it’s being escaped which is breaking the actual code. I assume you have the latest version of the plugin, 1.0.3, right? To fix this, could you try switching to the Custom API Configuration option, saving, switching back to WYSIWYG option and then saving again. This should clear out the bad configuration and update it with a correct configuration.

    Hello, I appear to be having the same problem. Smart Layers plugin is installed, activated, and configured. Nothing is showing on my website. I switched to API config, saved, switched back, re-saved again but nothing is showing still. Is there still bugs being worked on? Should I just use the AddThis Javascript provided on If so, where exactly should I paste the code in WordPress – in the header.php file? If so, which I assume yes, where exactly in that file?

    @davidroose – could you provide a link to your site so I can see if any code is being inserted into your template? And please make sure you’re using the latest 1.0.3 version of the plugin. Thanks.

    It didnt work I did exactly as you said I switched to the Custom API Configuration option, saved, switched back to WYSIWYG option

    How do i go abt this?

    @omarfaizan: Sorry for the plugin failing in your server. We have identified an issue and an update is on it’s way. We will update you as soon as the update is released. Thanks for your patience.

    Any idea what could be the approximate time until the next update, cuz i need to put things live on a few sites, so ill see if ill do the manual code pick up from

    Finally it worked for me 🙂 🙂 🙂
    can u tell me is there any way to keep the follow buttons always active on the header, they fade as i scroll?

    @omarfaizan: Good to hear that it worked for you!

    The Smart Layers are designed to cause minimum distraction and maximise interaction for the viewers and that is the reason why we hide follow button while scrolling. Currently we don’t have an option to keep Follow buttons always active, but you may have other customisations as explained here:

    You have to use the “Custom API configuration” option in Smart Layers plugin to customise using APIs.

    Hi Sol, I just went ahead and removed the plugin, and installed AddThis using traditional JS code provided by AddThis into the footer.php file before the closing body tag. It works fine now.

    Thanks, David.

    @davidroose – thanks for the update. Again, sorry for the inconvenience while we work out the issues with the plugin. Glad you were able to manually insert the code. Hopefully in the future, you’ll be able to use the plugin.
