Your approach is pretty poor and probably illegal in the EU, by mistake I dismissed the ‘new privacy notice’ and only noticed calls to sharethis when we were profiling the website.
I will be removing this plugin once we have found a suitable replacement, in the mean time anyone who is in the same position – you can edit the following file within the plugin directory to stop the sharethis script being called by wordpress.
Remove/comment out the following two lines (lines 653 and 655) from social-media-feather/synved-social/synved-social-setup.php
wp_enqueue_script('feather-sharethis', $url, null, null); add_filter('script_loader_tag', 'synved_social_wp_script_loader_tag', 10, 2); */
This will give you sometime to find a suitable replacement.
So sad to see this change. This is the same kind of BS that ruined the share plugin I used previous to this one. Time to move on and look for another 🙁
un-believable. – just earned this plugin a one star review.
selling out so many people – I hope you got more than 100,000 $ for doing this. Anything less than 10K makes you real *edited* – .
anyone know what country plugin author resides?
Have you find a suitable replacement? I am looking for but didn’t find it yet.
