It is not full width for me, the width setting is weird (7 posts)

    The width of the share-slide-down-bar is not the full page width. It starts at horizontal offset aligned with my posts and other site. This looks ugly. The behavior is different from the expected.

    Check out my site http://brijux.com/2010/08/07/i-often-do-this-at-movie-theaters/

    I use thesis theme. I have tried changing to "full width framework" and "page framework" but it doesn't make any difference.

    WordPress version: 3.0
    Plugin version: 1.1

    Did you disable it?

    The default width is set at 800px but you can change it in the settings. It doesn't currently support fluid width so you have to decide how wide it should be. Maybe that's something we should add in the future.

    You also mentioned on twitter that it breaks the facebook like button. What's it doing exactly? Does it change the styling? Does it make the button not work? If you get a change I'd appreciate a screenshot. There is an issue where any elements with the class of "fb_share" might get different styling. That's a problem with the way facebook handles differently styled embeds. But I'm not sure if that's the same issue that you're experiencing.

    Thanks for commenting and helping us make it better.

    Yes I have disabled it for now as it was breaking other things.

    When I have this plugin enabled, it just doesn't show any facebook like button or facebook widgets at all. I don't know what is causing that but all works fine after i disable this plugin.

    And the width setting doesn't make any difference if I change it from 800px as the starting of the bar starts from where my posts starts horizontally. Here is the screenshot

    Do you have a specific plugin you use to get your facebook shares? If so what are they, that way I can install them and then figure out why they're conflicting.

    1) For "like" button I use this plugin

    This facebook "like" button does not appear when active-share is enabled.

    2) For "Find us on Facebook" I use the following code in my sidebar widget (which also fails to load when I have active share enabled)

    <fb:like-box profile_id="278292228289" width="195" stream="false" logobar="0"></fb:like-box>

    3) And the 3rd issue is the width for which I have attached the screenshot earlier.

    I have currently disabled active-share plugin until these issues are resolved. You can see the item (1) and (2) working flawlessly at my website at http://brijux.com

    By the way, its a great plugin if it works correctly, I have always been looking for plugin similar to okcupid blog

    Just checked your twitter reply. Here are my updated inputs.

    1) Screen width issue is resolved with v1.02. Thanks for updating.
    2) Other facebook plugins work fine if I disable facebook in active-share settings. Hope you will fix this one soon.

    Thanks a lot for your efforts :)

    Digg button has also stopped showing now. It seems its because of the recent changes in Digg
