It NEVER Said it Would Put Ads in my Related Content
By , for WP 4.1

When I first installed this plugin I looked at my related content. It was all my articles - just as I wanted it. But a few days later I look and there are ads strewn into my related content for weight loss pills, testosterone enhancers, and the like. This is NOT OK - especially since I advocate loving your body as it is. There is NOTHING in the description or the back end that says that the plugin will do this and no way to make it stop.

THIS IS UNETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICE SHAREAHOLIC and I hope you take this into account in future versions. I am majorly pissed.

I love using shareaholic - the options they give you for follow and share buttons, the ability to connect multiple social media outlets, provide different sites to share on, and related content. Customer service is top par if you ever have a question or are stuck on a troubleshooting issue.

If you DON'T want affiliate ads...don't check that box! Simple as that.

Loads out of date jQuery
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin breaks one of the most important plugin rules: "Do not load your own version of standard WordPress libraries".

It currently loads jQuery version 1.8.0 which has the potential to break other well behaved plugins.

The last version of WordPress to use jQuery 1.8 was 3.5

¡¡¡Mucho mejor EN ESPAÑOL, ahora eso vale CINCO ESTRELLAS ENORMES!!!
Muchas gracias por el esfuerzo.

Un gran complemento para tu web hecha con WordPress, hoy en día imprescindible.

Limpio, ordenado y muy fácil de usar, sólo le faltaría estar traducida al español, el día que lo esté: 5 estrellas. Pero, de momento, sólo 4 GRANDES ESTRELLAS.

Destacar el gran soporte y su estupendo equipo personal: te resuelven cualquier problema que tengas a la velocidad del rayo. :D

¡Ánimo y seguid así!


Much better IN SPANISH, now it worths FIVE BIG STARS!!!
Thank you very much for your effort!

A great plugin to your website made with WordPress, which is really essential.

Clean, neat and very easy to use, just missing it to be translated into Spanish, this day it will be rated 5 stars. But for now, only 4 BIG STARS.

Highlighting the great support and great staff team: they solve any problem you have at lightning speed. :D

Awesome and keep it up!

Great plugin. Free and I love it ...

All I wanted from this plugin, I got it plus some advance features. At first reading some of the reviews here got a bit puzzled relating to “Promoted Contents”. It is a monetization feature if you wish to use. If not - turn it off. Do not know how, ask support for the link. I love this Plugin. I have tried few others but this one wins the trophy.

Very good

One of the best way to show social buttons. Keep up good work!

Works with WP 4.1., but was a bit tricky...
By , for WP 4.1


thanks a lot for this great plugin!!

First I was a bit sad as it seems not to work with Visual Composer (simply in the back end the edding part was blank).
So I deactivaded Shareaholic and activaded again... :-) then it worked.

My theme is The7 version 7.2
VC is version 4.3.5 (+VC addons 3.7.0)
Revolution Slider 4.6.5 also ok in combination
... + some others of well known plugins.

Ads I don't know yet, didn't test it, because I don't need it.
All the other points othe people complain I can't eveluate. However it's not so easy to understand... me as user had to read your advises really carefully and twice.

Thanks again,

Seems Powerful but confusing
By , for WP 4.1.1

The setup is tedious and bewildering. I have been back into setup so many times that I can't count it. If one can make it through all this it might be a great plugin.
The popup which appears upon clicking an up/down vote is way too intrusive, and I've found no clear way of getting rid of that.

Settings keep changing
By , for WP 4.1

Uninstalled this. Every time I update this plugin, there are new default options that change how this plugin appears on the page. I have to go into the settings and figure out how to turn off the new feature they surprised the user with.

Sneaky advertiser!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Love the floating share buttons but hate EVERYTHING else about the plugin - mostly adding affiliate ads to related posts. I was never notified and read nothing about it; I can only conclude these folks are a bunch of scummy jerks.
