AddThis.com – Please Help Me!

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

As you can see on my main page, I’m having a little difficulty with the AddThis plugin for WordPress… I’ve sent multiple requests for support to AddThis and have received no response… Sigh.

Maybe one of my readers can help me?

The issue:

The plugin has no options functionality and the button just appears automagically. The problem is that it appears when on calls to the_content() as well as the_excerpt()… on very short posts, this means that the addthis code is added, but then stripped (poorly) by WP’s excerpt process…

The solution:

Only fire the plugin calls are made to the_content() and not the_excerpt(). I think, however, that WordPress’ plugin hook doesn’t distinguish between them. Am I out of luck here?

AddThis.com WordPress Plugin

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

This is the coolest little plugin I’d never heard of. Last month, AddThis.com released a new plugin for WordPress allows your users to bookmark blog posts at any of about a dozen different social bookmarking services with just one little button.

Cool.

UPDATE: I’ve temporarily disabled the plugin until I’ve resolved a couple issues…

UPDATE 2: I’ve re-enabled the plugin while I troubleshoot the issues… you may see some weird text at the end of post excerpts… AddThis has been completely unresponsive to my support requests – so I’m trying to figure this out on my own – any help would be appreciated.
