Support » Plugin: Sharedaddy » Sharedaddy plugin causing background problems in IE8

  • When sharedaddy is activated the backgrund colour in Internet Explorer 8 (normal mode) doesnt show. It just shows white not the colour that it should be. When in compatibility mode the backgorund colour shows fine. Any ideas whats causing this problem with sharedaddy and IE8?

  • Hi aquastar.
    I faced the same issue today.
    Noticed that my page had a duplicate call to jquery, whitch call was made by Sharedaddy…

    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

    After desactivating Sharedaddy, everything gets OK again.
    Now, looking for a way to make Sharedaddy use the existing call to Jquery without calling it again.

    Hi fxbodin, Im glad that someone else is getting this error, Im sure many others are too but they haven’t noticed it in IE. I searched the Internet high and low for 1 month now trying to find a solution. I like the sharedaddy plugin as its very clean but just had to delete it in the end as I couldn’t solve this. So are you saying just deactivate and reactive and the backgorund colour should display fine in IE?

    Unfortunately, no: desactivate Sharedaddy to restore the bg on IE8. But you lose the sharing services. I’m looking arround for a way to keep Sharedaddy on. Trying the checkbox at the bottom on the plugin settings page solves the pb, but you miss the ajax effects as well as the design. Is there a way to move the .js and .css in a right folder manually and get the complete Sharedaddy behavior without the side effect?
