    Do not use this plugin - it adds "Tabress Social Media Tracking" on each one of your pages, making your site load time really long if Tabpress takes awhile to load. Find a better, honest plugin that tells you what it's adding into your pages.

    Actually this feature was requested by one of the users, and to add it it requires ssl certificate to be installed on your site and if you don't have one it won't work... so the easiest and more efficient way to make it work for everybody is by using tabress social media tracking. and i was honest.. i didn't encrypt my code.. everything is in front of you...

    Ah, your right. That is very shady. Its not even an option to turn off and he never mentioned it in his description. Shame on you.

    Please make this optional! Because the GA Social Tracking code is referenced by https:// it breaks at least IE7 default installations ... IE7 complains about an https:// src referenced in a non-https-site, doesn't load it so all other JS in the site breaks ... EVERYTHING, every single bit of custom JS you write for the them will not be executed!!!

    The plugin comes with it's own ga_social_track.js, so I changed the line in inc/fun.inc.php to:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/wp-content/plugins/facebook-like-button/inc/js/ga_social_track.js"></script>

    This seems to work but will be gone with each and every plugin update!

    Please make the use of social tracking optional by enabling/disabling it in the plugin settings!
