Updated share this, buttons not showing on front page blog snippets (18 posts)

    Updated ShareThis to latest version. Buttons are showing on individual posts, but they no longer load on bottom of blog excerpts on home page. You can see by visiting here:

    vs. an individual post like this: http://smellslikeinfinitesadness.com/captain-america-the-winter-soldier-review-superhero-conspiracy-movie/

    I've tried every single setting and configuration I can think of, but I can't fix it and need to have it working. Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    I would also like to add that it keeps deleting the user id for my instagram account in settings.

    Looks like you got the reverse problem of what I am experiencing. Prior to updating the plug-in, the buttons never showed up under the blog excerpts on the homepage of my blog. Now they do and I don't find a way to switch them off.

    I started a thread about this a couple of days ago but no word from support so far...

    How weird! It's very odd, I've tried everything I can think of but they won't reappear. Hopefully they'll respond soon so we can figure out a fix for both ways!

    We have already fixed the issue at our end and it will be available on production in our next plugin release. It will be out in a weeks time.
    Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    For now,
    Can you please try un-comment the following lines in sharethis.php (line number around 340)
    // 2008-08-15 Excerpts don't play nice due to strip_tags().
    add_filter('get_the_excerpt', 'st_remove_st_add_link',9);
    add_filter('the_excerpt', 'st_add_widget');

    Thanks for the info...I noticed there's a new update as of last night...so there's another coming in next few weeks or would updating to latest version possibly fix? Just wondered before I went and edited the code.

    Thanks!

    The only thing that is slightly frustrating is that I can't make different settings for home page and blog posts. Basically whatever positioning you use for blog posts will show up in truncated form in snippets.

    Perhaps it was always this way before we had ability to put share buttons at top of posts? I like having them on top/bottom in posts but only show up once on front page. Only issue I have at this point.

    In ShareThis plugin file called (sharethis.php), can you try commenting these lines at line number 344.
    add_filter('get_the_excerpt', 'st_remove_st_add_link',9);
      add_filter('the_excerpt', 'st_add_widget');   

    Let us know if this works for you.
    Our developers are looking into the issue in detail.

    Commenting means, removing the code from the page.

    Having another related issue; after changing my settings to show buttons at top of posts it defaulted again to showing them on top and bottom. I re-saved the settings so working at the moment, but why would it revert back?
