  • Hello User,

    The link you have provided contains the list of 21 Articles title and ShareThis WP Plugin by default adds the ShareThis buttons below each of the post title and inside the individual posts.

    You can try the solution as –
    Update the sharethis settings for wordpress from here:
    http://YOUR WP BLOG/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharethis.php

    Automatically add ShareThis to your posts?* Yes

    Automatically add ShareThis to your pages?* No

    And if you want to show it on specific pages then please note that it is not possible to control where buttons appear on WordPress post (location on a page) from ShareThis WP plugin. We can provide you the guidelines on how to achieve this using manual installation of ShareThis code. Manual installation can be done after removal of previously installed ShareThis Plugin from WP.
    Its a bit tricky procedure.

    For now, you can refer the link –

    Hope this helps.

    For now I removed it from the pages because it was showing up on my homepage- ideally I would like to to show up on the pages but not the interface.

    Take a look at my search reults..

    Kind of embarassing!!

    I will take a look at the instructions for manual installation, in the meantime.



    Actually, I looked at the manual install from the website, and it when I share things on twitter they say “…via @sharethis” whereas when I use the wordpress plug-in they say “…via @hippressurecook”.

    Is there some variable I need to set in the Javascript to place it manually but refer my website, not yours.



    Ok, I finally installed it manually – my theme has a widget that I can just paste the Share-this HTML code BUT…

    When someone wants to share something on twitter it does not show the post title, instead it shows..

    <?php the_title(); ?> via @hippressurecook

    ..any ideas how to have the title of the post show?
