Still one of the nicest except ...
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin does the best and most comprehensive job of all the similar ones I tried. You do have to watch it like a hawk every time you update it to keep it honest if you are not wanting sharaholic affiliate link rewrite features.

It has one fairly major flaw that I knock off a star for. It adds share buttons to custom post types with no way to prevent except checking boxes on every single custom post individually. Fortunately there is an easy fix. Add the below code to your theme functions.php (or your own plugin if you want to be theme independant). You can modify the post_type test to suit your needs. Mine are to only have share buttons on post and page types.

add_action('the_content', 'sharaholic_fix_types', 1);
function sharaholic_fix_types($content) {
	global $post;
	remove_action('the_content', array('ShareaholicPublic', 'draw_canvases'));
    if ($post->post_type != 'post' && $post->post_type != 'page')
    	return $content;
    return ShareaholicPublic::draw_canvases($content);
It's very nice!

I would say perfect except 1 thing that bothers me. Often when i post something, posts go public in facebook faster than opengraph gets the correct info, resulting in blank picture links. I tried the randomize time option but i think it doesnt work.

Anyway great plugin!

Good support pinterst button

I think it is a good idea to describe this feature better.

Nice but...

Nice plugin, but no FB "Like" button.

Love it....but
By , for WP 3.8.1

I absolutely adore this plugin....however.....in that I have to FTP my updates to ALL my websites, the ridiculous number and frequency with which they continue to roll out updates is quickly making this my least favorite.

The changes are minor and while I know I don't have to update, I can't stand seeing that red (1) staring at me each morning. But these almost daily updates are driving me insane!

Unfortunately, I've started looking for an alternative plugin.

Works Great!

Not able to give a full review because I've just started using it. I do have to say that the user interface is clean and looks good. Time will tell about the rest... loading pages and the other external processing.

It would be 5-stars..

..if only they would add a simple Social profiles widget. :)
Just perfect for everything else, from analytics to promoted content network.

it's a good plugin

I really liked this plugin when I first started out using WordPress 3 years+ years ago. And any time I had questions or issues, the Shareaholic team was quick to answer and help. Over time, I noticed that this plugin was using more resources than I liked on my server. I noticed a significant drop in load time when it was disabled. This is not a lightweight plugin. The plugin does what it says and has all kinds of bells and whistles. And if you have very few plugins installed, then this one will work for you. Thanks for the ride, Shareaholic!

NIce Work
