Support » Plugin: Sharedaddy More Control » Removal of Sharedaddy in Post Excerpts

  • Resolved cmcdoniel


    Your plugin is great, however, when I choose Posts Only (which is what I want), your plugin seems to insert the Sharedaddy options into the post excerpts I am using on my home page through the Category Posts Widget. Is there a way to remove those so that the Sharedaddy options only show on the posts themselves rather than the excerpts on my home page?

    Please try the 0.3 version, there were some problems with 0.2 version regarding proper filtering of selected content.

    I am using version 0.3. Downloaded the plugin yesterday…

    Can you give me a link I need to check the theme and/or maybe the theme locations? Or if that is an free theme, a download link.


    Here’s the theme we are using:

    Here’s our site:

    I don’t have the plugin turned on right now as it messes up the index page (even without selecting index pages in Sharedaddy) due to the excerpt problem.

    As this is a commercial theme, we cannot really help. You need to seek support from the theme vendors.
    Themeforest Support:

    We just won’t use your plugin…I would have hoped for support based on the plugin, but I’m sure another plugin will work.

    Whose plugin? I’m not the plugin’s developer but a forum mod.

    Stas Suscov is the plugin’s developer. He and I have been posting back and forth.

    Because you are using a commercial theme with it’s own support forum.

    So I can’t talk to the plugin’s developer on this forum as he and I have already been doing?

    Of course you can. But no one on the forums can access that theme as it’s a commercial theme. So the support that you might receive could be limited by that lack of access.

    Thanks. I’ll keep talking to the plugin’s developer and go from there.

    I’m afraid @esmi is right.
    Another reason would be that sharedaddy itself hooks into a post action/filter, and it is likely doing it wrong since you get sharing options printed inside excerpts.

    If you can confirm this happening with WordPress default theme, I will happily check it.


    I’ll try to test that out on the default theme and let you know.


    I’ve recreated the problem that cmcdoniel first reported. It’s not a problem with a bad theme, as I did it with my own theme as well as theme Twenty Eleven, although with an edit to modify the site’s header meta description.

    Here’s the issue:

    1. I have the most recent version of Sharedaddy activated.

    2. In the header, in defining the meta description, I’m using this code:

    <meta name="description" content="<?php if ( is_single() ) : ?><?php the_excerpt(); ?><?php else : ?>General site description<?php endif; ?>" />

    3. In the output in a post header, I get the single post excerpt, plus the Sharedaddy code, e.g.:

    <meta name="description" content="Single Post Description<div class="snap_nopreview sharing robots-nocontent"><ul><li class="sharing_label">Share this:</li><li class="share-facebook share-regular"> etc." />
