    There are no jquery conflicts caused by this plugin. all jquery is coded correctly. if you are having problems you need to look at what other jquery based plugins are doing as some do not correctly load the jquery library.

    If you can give me the link to your site I can take a lookand check what the problem may be

    As for the tweet button this could be a local/temporary problem from twitter, which sometimes occurs. all buttons have been functioning on both the plugin main site as well as the demo pages.

    I take it you rated it 1?

    Thanks for your response.

    In your FAQ you write this:

    If your theme files or another plugin are not using the WordPress standard method for loading the jQuery library this may result in jQuery being loaded a 2nd time, causing the plugin files to be overwritten.

    Check the page source code to see if there is a second instance of jQuery and if so, remove the code from your theme files.

    That's obviously not very helpful as you can sort of assume that there will be other jQuery instances running on most modern websites.

    You as the developer of this plugin should make it so that if jQuery already has been loaded, it doesn't load for a second time. If it is not loaded you can load it. Hence my comment and rating. If you fix it, the rating goes up, very simple principle really.

    And as a matter of fact, your FAQ section is not really helpful at all...

    Regarding the tweet button not showing, screenshot of your site: http://senl.in/nfZ81U
    Other plugins show it perfectly fine.

    Actually you have the issue reversed.

    Only one instance of jquery should be loaded on any page. This is a built-in feature of WordPress and there are functions which are supposed to be used by both theme and plugin developers to add jquery from wordpress core files

    unfortunately some developers do not follow the standards. Fortunately we do and all of our plugins utilise the enqueue_script function, which will manage the loading of the jquery library across the site. If another plugin has previously loaded the file ours will not

    you can therefore be 100% confident that jquery conflicts cannot occur as a result of utilising this plugin

    Our FAQ is therefore correct - if jquery is being loaded incorrectly elsewhere in the site this code must be removed otherwise jquery based plugins will continue to break. Unfortunately there is no other fix than correct the offending theme code or plugin

    For the tweet button do you also see the same problem if you visit the website home page? http://www.designchemical.com

    These are using 2 different plugins to create the buttons so it may give some clue as to what could be causing the problem you are seeing

    if jquery is being loaded incorrectly elsewhere in the site this code must be removed

    Which then obviously will break other functionality...

    there is no other fix than correct the offending theme code or plugin

    So the developer of the theme/other plugin should correct his code, that is a better solution than to tell people just to rip out code form their website...
    Apologies for assuming the Slick Social Share plugin was used on the website of the Slick Social Share plugin! Then I would really be interested to know why you would not be using your own plugin...
    You know what? This discussion is not going to help anyone, so I close it. I will up my rating a bit as it seems I have hurt your feelings tremendously...

    I would if I could, but I have already deleted your plugin from my site as I need a solution now.

    Will try your plugin again on a virgin single install to see how that goes.
