Previous versions used to be great
By , for WP 4.2.2

Not working properly since version 5.0.9.

Site down for malware script trought the plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

my hosting provider shut down my website (http://www.scambieuropei.info/) this morning after tracking malicious scipts inserted in it trought this plugin. I love Addthis features and they're very usefull for me, so please take action to provide a good service also to WordPress users. Most important: SECURITY, I want to be sure I'll have no issues of this kind on my website.


Broken a good plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

The latest update has broken some of the widgets on my themes so I have had to remove the plugin. Not good.
I put a a support request but it was never answered even though I paid for the Pro Version.

No imagen...
By , for WP 4.2.2

When i try share something on facebook, on the pop-up i can see the image from the post. But when I fo to the facebbok, there I have only the text, no images there. How to solve it?

By , for WP 4.1

Free version is fairly middling compared to other offerings, and Pro price of $12/mo or $99/yr is laughable. Not ha-ha funny.

how about NO

BIG NO ...same problem as others

Nice, but breaks the theme template
By , for WP 4.0.1

I notice many are saying similar, and also suggesting to hold onto your older version. If you are not lucky enough to have the older version, you can get it here... https://github.com/wp-plugins/addthis/tree/3.5.10 by clicking the 'Download ZIP' button on the right :)

Not easy to set up & need addthis account
By , for WP 4.0

the addthis plugin has changed considerably since I first started using it, and in my opinion has gone downhill. It is not easy to set up, there are no options in wordpress to set up the plugin it has to be done via the associated addthis account. The addthis website is confusing and lacks easy to use/find documentation.
You can no longer choose to show the share buttons on wordpress pages which renders it pretty useless unless you want to manually add the code. If you're going to have to do that, what's the point of the plugin? That's if you can find the place on the website that offers the code to add to the pages.... not a good experience over all.
It's a shame addthis is such a difficult service to use as it offers so much.

Bad Update
By , for WP 4.0

updated the plugin and now i don't have share buttons below my excerpts but at the bottom of the page right before the footer.

Good but bad spacing
By , for WP 3.9.1

Good but bad spacing between buttons, which makes your site have poor appearance.
