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

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..

Spam maker. Sort this out
By , for WP 4.1

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

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.
