Support » Plugin: WordPress Share Buttons Plugin – AddThis » Wrong side icons on pages with videos

  • Resolved Trishah


    Reference site:

    On the homepage, in the red “Be Informed” column, you will see images and excerpts from a number of posts. The two posts that have YouTube videos in them also show the icons but they are maybe a tenth of the size they are supposed to be. When I look at the code around them I can see that the <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style" addthis:url=""> DIV is missing. Also, the icons are separated by ‘<br>’. With CSS I’ve removed these breaks so the icons, though small, will line up horizontally.

    This also happens on the Be Informed category page: but I haven’t fixed the breaks on them.

    The icons look fine on the actual pages.

    Can you tell me why this is happening and how to fix it?

    Hi there,

    Is the site currently down? I tried visited the pages you referenced, but they aren’t loading for me.


    I just checked and it’s loading for me just fine. :-/

    Apparently there is an server issue we’re trying to straighten out. I’ll let you know when the site it back up consistently. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hello. We have the server issue fixed now. Please check the site now:

    It looks like there’s a conflict between the AddThis plugin and the way your theme is inserting excerpts.

    To correct this, I’d suggest switching to our Website Tools plugin, which offers the same buttons you currently are using, but it inserts sharing buttons using different class names.

    That worked. Thank you so much for helping me solve the problem.
