If anyone is using the 'ShareDaddy' plugin for their self-hosted blogs I have finally had success with it.
First I edited the plugins 'sharing-service.php' files to remove the following lines: (you can find them right at the bottom of the file)
add_filter( 'excerpt_length', 'calculate_excerpt_length' );<br />
add_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'sharing_display', 19 );<br />
add_filter( 'the_content', 'sharing_display', 19 );
The next bit is dependant on your theme files but somewhere you should have a 'loop.php' where your theme builds each post. Find this file and insert the following code wherever you want the ShareDaddy line to appear.
<?php echo sharing_display(); ?>
That should work. All the options in the settings page will still work, but this way you don't need to fiddle around with excerpts! Plus this way you have control over where it goes... realistically this plugin should never have been released without such a basic option!
Hope this can help some of you.
