  • Hi. This looks like an amazing plugin! The install went great. I took your advice in another post to prevent it from showing in feeds, which worked fine. So it was in place and it looked great, but it has one little problem (or maybe just a problem to me). When the blog post has a YouTube video embed and the hover-over popup appears, the video disappears leaving a big white area. When you move off of the icon, the video reappears.

    Otherwise, it’s the best plugin to come along in months. 🙂

  • Funny you report this just hours after we pushed out a release that makes that happen. 🙂

    The reason we’re now hiding embedded content (like YouTube videos; other Flash objects) when the menu is displayed is so that the drop-down menu is guaranteed to display on top of embedded content in all browsers. (Usually it doesn’t display on top of embedded content in most browsers without some ridiculously code wrangling.)

    Luckily, if you find this annoying or you’ve already solved the problem another way, you can add this bit of code within the plugin:

    a2a_hide_embeds=0;

    Place that in add-to-any.php, like in this example:

    <script type="text/javascript">a2a_linkname=document.title;a2a_linkurl=location.href;<strong>a2a_hide_embeds=0;</strong></script><script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.addtoany.com/menu/page.js"></script>

    To give you a heads up, we’ll add this as an option in the next release of the plugin.

    Thanks for the kind words, and feel free to let us know if you have any more thoughts this issue, or the plugin itself.

    Actually, the above example should look more like this:

    <script type="text/javascript">a2a_linkname=document.title;a2a_linkurl=location.href;a2a_hide_embeds=0;</script><script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.addtoany.com/menu/page.js"></script>

    (without the tag)

    The latest plugin release (0.9.2) includes an option to disable this method.

    You can go into the plugin’s settings panel and un-check:

    Hide embedded objects (Flash, video, etc.) when the menu is displayed.

    Note that disabling this option may result in the menu not displaying over embedded objects in most browsers, unless you’ve taken other measures to address that issue.

    Let us know if you have any concerns!
