    This plugin use different domain to post and share , say wd.sharethis.com to post on any social site, what if wd.sharethis.com is down,
    Will be okay with it, but seen another thing which was sharing a link of facebook was not be original url instead by small url shar.es url,

    Means wff? this plugin is generating own money with our website, first using own api not default social website, and second sharing their own urls on your page or facebook profile or where ever possible.
    Come on developers do you think we are fool.

    Hello Abhishek,

    Thank you for your review.

    We would like to know exactly what issue you are facing regarding ShareThis widgets so that we can further assist you and answer your query more precisely.

  3. Excuse me Abhishek while I go off topic for a minute.

    @sharethissupport You seem to be using a signature on these forums and that's just not allowed. It's why 100% of your posts here are moderated and need to be approved before anyone else can see your replies.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Signatures

    It would save the moderators a lot of work if you substituted your signature with this HTML instead.

    <em>[ <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Signatures">Signature moderated</a>. ]</em>

    That way if you do insist on continuing to break the rules you will at least save people like me the effort of modifying all of your posts.

    Much thanks and please do continue to support your plugin users.

    Abhishek? I'm returning this topic to you now. ;)

    @jan dembowski ofcourse, it took time to get my reply from developers. :)

    @sharethissupport hi, as a developer i like your plugin and appreciate your work.but here thing is about multiple backlinking or using own private url.

    i really dont consider this fact as good idea and its done for benefit not for user covenience.Please try to add option or remove own url so that plugin becomes real companion with wordpress.

    Hi Abhishek,

    For your queries here are the answers :-

    Disabling the URL Shortening –
    If you have installed ShareThis WP Plugin then just login to your WordPress site from here:

    http://YOUR SITE URL/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharethis.php

    Scroll down the page and click on " [+] Click to modify other widget options. "
    A box will open containing the code like

    [ Moderator Note: Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. ]

    <script type="text/javascript">
    stLight.options({publisher:"YOUR PUB KEY", shorten: 'false'});
    </script>

    Here you will have to add the "shorten: false" parameter as shown above.

    If you have added the ShareThis code manually, then from your websites ShareThis's code, you can turn off the URL shortener by using the above code directly.

    The “wd.sharethis.com” query -
    Supporting all the social operations on 2.4M websites requires ShareThis to crunch an enormous amount of data. To do it, we use multiple robust architectures to power an array of technologies, including Hadoop, Hive, Cassandra and Kafka. ShareThis runs completely on the AWS Platform and uses many of its components, including EC2, S3, SQS, RDS, ELB, Route53 and IAM. Our system is designed with built-in redundancy and is distributed across multiple regions to provide our clients fast access.

    Hope this helps.
