    Keep getting error in sharebar.js line #27

    Need to add a check to see if top is null. This error only happens on pages (not posts) at least on a few of my sites. So the error is not always thrown. Please add an if check to validate offset().top.

    It seems like every-time an update is made I have to go in and fix it. I have submitted this bug several times and it keeps getting ignored. I would greatly appreciate it if someone who has access to the source branch could fix it as I love this plugin. It is frustrating that I have to go patch it every-time an update is made, let me fix it again and I’ll post the solution.

    Thanks much!

  • Posting code fix. It doesn’t look like the developer answers or checks the threads as most of the forum questions remain unresolved.

    So if you get a JS error like the one above open the sharebar.js file and look for a function named function sharebar_init()

    Replace the contents with this:

    function sharebar_init(){
    	var $sharebar = jQuery(sharebar);
    	if ($sharebar.length > 0) {
    		if (o.position == 'left') jQuery(sharebar).css('marginLeft',(0-o.swidth-o.leftOffset));
    		else {
    		if(w < o.minwidth && o.horizontal) jQuery(sharebarx).slideDown();
    		else jQuery(sharebar).fadeIn();
    		jQuery.event.add(window, "scroll", sharebar_scroll);
    		jQuery.event.add(window, "resize", sharebar_resize);
    		return jQuery(sharebar).offset().top;
    	} else {
    		return 0;

    I have marked this as resolved but in future updates you might have to fix this unless the developer reads some of the forum threads…

    Hope this helps someone.


    Here is my patch, found this issue after I coded it up and was looking for a way to send it to the developer. Hope s/he starts checking these issues.
