Support » Plugin: Share Buttons by AddThis » Plugin not working for the home page

  • Resolved pierino84


    Hello Srijith, the issue regarding custom code appearing on facebook popup seems to have misteriously resolved by itself.
    Now I have another problem: the addthis share is almeost never showing up in the home page, under any excerpt or fetured content, as it was doing just days ago.
    I haven’t made any substantial modification to the site. Sometimes If you reload several times, eventually it will show up. Is it a problem with the Addthis server?
    I don’t have any cache plugin.
    This is happening with the follow sharing tool at the bottom, the first design selected.
    Moreover, if I use a custom markup taken from the addthi website, something like this:

    "<!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
    <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->"

    Nothing will show up on the home page, and if I surf to the single blog posts, the three sharing icons are not lined together. Several javascript errors are reported by Safari.
    Do you need the access to my test site? Let me know!
    Thanks for the support.

    Hello Srijith,
    I am glad to report that after some testing I was able to make it work again.
    The button disappearing from the home page remains a mistery, since it restarted working by itself, without me doing any major edit to WP.
    The custom code was behaving erratically because when entering the custom code in the plugin, some ‘
    ‘ were placed between the buttons codes.
    You might want to inform the plugin users to paste the addThis custom code in the same line, so no brackets are added.
    I also had to edit the space after the twitter button, and I used your reply to another topic involving this issue.
    Thanks again!
