  • 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.


    It will go in next release..

    is this already fixed? i still cant see share this on the front page of blog snippets

    I just updated to the current version and it’s working on my site! Hopefully it will for you too.

    i just updated the plugin too.. but its not working.. dosen’t show up on the front page.. im using thesis 2.1.8

    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.

    i see, i also tried to put the buttons on the top of the posts but nothing happens in the blog frontpage… well i hope i get a reply from the support team how to fix this…

    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 meaning replacing, right?

    okay i already replaced it but nothing happens

    Commenting means, removing the code from the page.

    oh sorry, lol… anyway i just removed
    add_filter(‘get_the_excerpt’, ‘st_remove_st_add_link’,9);
    add_filter(‘the_excerpt’, ‘st_add_widget’);

    at sharethis.php

    still nothing happens..

    im using thesis 2 as my theme.. and in the home page i used excerpts only to show..
