Destroys site speed
By ,

Slows down site - Monarch doesn't, is lighter and half the price - plus far cheaper options out there for exactly the same functionality - and without any branding -

Confusing. Very confusing.
By , for WP 4.3

I just wanted to add some social media buttons to my site, but I have no idea what this is. I can't customise which buttons appear, and which URLs they link to! (Well, maybe I can if I spend a couple of days ploughing through all manner of APIs and such on their website and take a masters in programming). Uninstalled.

Violates the regulations of the European Union WCAG 2.0

I do not have anything as outraged as yours this ad.
Such a mess, mess, nowhere is a link on which you could click. It is not there to find Pinterest, or Google Plus, I have never seen such a hash.

It always changes. Every time there is something different than I've set.

Higher CPU loads with this Plugin

This plugin puts your CPU through the roof. I tried to use it many times and always causes issues. Pass...

Don't track my visitors without permission
By , for WP 4.2.2

After installing discovered every visitor of my websites (after refreshing landingpage) gets 3 extra cookies weborama.fr,adnxs.com and crwdcntrl.net. Look it up in google and you know why i am not using Addthis anymore.

Broke site, zero privacy
By , for WP 4.2.2

In addition to this completely breaking my site they will sell your user data all over the world

Blew up my site
By , for WP 4.2.2

Installed this -- now my main page is blank (no posts will show up). Uninstalled, still the same problem. I guess I'm going to have to reinstall wordpress or some such to figure out what this did to the php.


This plugin wrecked my site
By ,

This plugin messed up my blog. It moved the sidebar to the center of the page and messed up the layout. This happens in every browser. I have disabled and deleted the plugin and it is still happened. This only happened after a recent update to this plugin. As another reviewer said, even if you delete this plugin it still leaves a bit of code. I'm even sure how to remove this code. DO NOT use this plugin if you want your site compromised, I'm still trying to figure this mess out.

what happened?
By , for WP 4.2.2

i used to use addthis all the time but now its so much more cumbersome. looking for alternatives.

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..
