Social Charge your Content with ShareThis - features Social Analytics, CopyNShare, Open Graph Sharing, and the Hovering Bar!
This is plugin is literally the worst I've ever used. It creates a GOD AWFUAL popup asking users to share your content that overs over the top of the page with out any option to turn it off. It also places it's own analytics pixel on your website to track your site visitors.
DO NOT USE THIS CRAP.
As the title states, I'm not one to leave a negative review without first discussing things with the author or trying to come up with some form of solution, but the issues with this plugin are way beyond a small patch to fix it.
First off, this plugin has caused a tremendous number of issues on one of our clients sites.
First, this plugin saves the settings via ajax, so if there is any js errors on the page things just won't work.
Second, the amount of time/weight that this plugin has added to the site is astronomical. This has increased our clients page load times 10 fold.
st_log(). This function is actually tracking user activity and sending data over to the plugin authors Google Anaalytics account. This is strictly against WordPress plugin repository rules.
I have used this plugin in the past without any issue. But since this major re-haul of the plugin there have been some extremely major bugs and errors that have gone un-resolved.
Anyone looking to integrate share this, I would stick to the standalone embed code that you can generate on there site.
Do avoid this plugin as it has far too many problems to be run on a production ready site.
Stay away from this plugin.
This plugin will ad 30 seconds of load time, install multiple tracking codes, and conflicts with many other plugins.
So bad, that I created an account just to review!
Not to mention that in a year and a half, not one visitor out of millions used it.
add spam , spyware and a lot of crap to your site
Do not install!!
I installed it and it did not work could not configure plug in, posted problem on their site - no response and my question has disappeared!!
Wasted over an hour on this plugin.
Seems to insert spurious tags onto the end of page/post names (url)...
1) So the page/post links that get inserted into twitter feeds are not correct!
2) Because I have the <base> tag set within header.php, whenever I refresh any page it goes back to the home page instead of staying on the current page...
i am able to remove the plugin but am still seeing sharethis popup on my website. my website name is http://www.faceovercase.com . I have no clue of coding so i please need a step by step process to COMPLETELY remove it.
It works, it's fast and simple to use. Great one! I would suggest it.
I Can't save settings after making any modification
