Ruined a good plugin with new updates
By , for WP 4.2.2

It was a good plugin which was so easy to work with, now as of the latest version the widget is gone, AND I need to login to their website to use. Disabled and deleted..

Warning - Can not fully unistall and hogs lots of bandwidth
By , for WP 4.2.2

After deleting the plugin, the following stayed on my website and I am unable to determine how to remove it in the source code. I went through all the source code to locate the issue. While it appears on the surface that it isn't there after I removed the plugin, the source code tells a very different story and this code adds about 256KB. Here's what every page has when I click view source from the browser.

I recommend not installing this plugin!

Very good plugin

Spam maker. Sort this out

This has a serious problem with a hack. You will NEVER be able to remove the plugin files. they will always be with you.

Do NOT use this plugin until THEY sort it out.

This is coming from the application not our side.

Login with your social media account so they can spam you!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Why do I have to login to create an account on addthis.com?
Why do I need to sign in with my facebook account?

Oh yeah, so they can keep spamming you more efficiently. This was a good plugin but its been taken over by greedy marketers

5 star plugin and support
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have been using 'addthis' for several years now and have never experienced any issues.

I recently updated to 4.1.1 and found that the toolbar had disappeared from my website. I contacted support and within the hour everything was working again. Thanks to Matt who explained how to resolve this. Very good and flexible plugin with very good support.


Useful to me

I personally prefer to use addthis.com and this plugin,
is a easy interface and you can get a handful of stuff into it,
ofc - one critic is - not controlled via WordPress admin interface, somehow it is good and a plus point to me,

Infinite Loop - really?
By , for WP 4.1.1

SO incredibly frustrated on 3/19/15. Spent HOURS trying to figure out why all of a sudden my high traffic wordpress sites would not load. Had to install Firefox, load Firebug, and learned it was this plugin that all of a sudden brought everything down.

I lost revenue, hours, and got a big headache from this. Can't believe this was the culprit.

I am going to try the new version since I need this feature and it says the infinite loop is fixed, but proceed with caution.

It does not work at all.

What the hell?
By , for WP 4.1.1

I've used AddThis before, but now I'm totally dissapointed by it. 1 star is too much for this plugin. Too bad I can't rate it with a half star. It can't be called a plugin.
