Good but server greedy
By , for WP 4.4.2

I used it on a few sites, it's easy to install and set up.

But there are a couple of downsides:
- The analytics don't show the number of shares, which is important.
- Increases server load in up to 4 times with requests like that: GET /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=shareaholic_share_counts_api&url... (from the server log).

Had to delete under the risk of hosting suspension.

An Excellent user friendly tool

Hi,

Thanks for creating such a remarkable and yet simple tool. It helps me to reach out to many to share my website updates, and definitely shares lots of time. The share buttons are also presented very well.

Would appreciate if the sharing to multiple networks can be automated so that it saves lots of time. Please consider this option for future enhancement of the tool.

Regards
John

I love the way the buttons look. I love the way you can show how many shares you've gotten. It's super easy to customize the buttons. Well done, Shareaholic.

Timeouts slow site
By , for WP 4.5

I had an instance where my site slowed to a halt and it was the Shareaholic plugin:

  • curl_multi_exec() /www/wp-content/plugins/shareaholic/lib/social-share-counts/curl_multi_share_count.php:71
  • get_counts() /www/wp-content/plugins/shareaholic/public.php:444

In reviewing that code, I see a timeout set, but not a catch in the event the remote site can not be reached nor resolved. I think a try catch would improve this and handle the error more gracefully. I also noticed that you're utilizing CURL when WordPress has its own API method:

wp_remote_post()

Really love this plugin, otherwise.
