  1. I added it without any problems, but it doesn't seem to work. It says it had shared, but when I look at my FB wall or twitter feed, there's nothing there.

  2. hola i liked the post, what's your opinion about addthis and wibiya compared to sharethis?

  3. @ Sylvia - Thats odd, I use it on another blog and never have trouble with it.You can connect your social profiles with Share This to make it easier but it should work anyway.Quickly check that you added the script in step 6 correctly.

  4. @ Actualidad - Addthis is probably still the most popular "all in one" type bookmarking site, i think wibiya is a differant type of service.There are also sites like addtoany, onlywire and sharepost.They are all great but in my Humble opinion Share This is the best.That is just an opinion and the others might suit other people better.

  5. thanks for sharing,i'll bookmark your web,keep sharing

  6. i still don't understand..can you explain it more? btw,thanks for sharing

  7. @ Fonsat - I dont think it is possable to explain more than a video and text tutorial.Exactly what part dont you understand ?

  8. Thank you so much for sharing this info. Very useful I have now decided to add the social sharing buttons, I will be adding you blog to my website as a recommendation to people that visit my blog.

    All the best and keep up the good work

  9. This worked well, but I see your blog has a slightly different side-sharing bar. Does anyone know how I could put something like that on my site?

  10. @Elazar Krausz - I would also like to have one like the one on this blog. Also the one in this tutorial did not work for me.

    1. I doubt it's worth saying, but I too would love to have the share bar on this site. It's much more clean and professional looking than the one provided in the tutorial.

  11. Thank you sooooooo much. I just added the hovering button!!! You make this so easy for us non-technical folks. Yesterday, I added the vintage buttons. Followed along with your video instructions, which are spot on. Thanks again.

  12. Thank you very much! It work on my page!

  13. Thanks for this mate, your blog is great and you give good advice.

    I will contact you soon, as I need some advice.

  14. I'm trying to do this, but when I go to the Share This site I don't see the option for the vertical hovering column. They only let me put the horizontal bar at the bottom of my posts, and it doesn't get rid of the old sharing bar I had before. Any advice?

  15. Hello,

    there is no more "The Fixed Share This Widget" button on Share, lab section. Are you able to help?

    Furthermore, I'm looking for a nice sharing button (Fb, Twitter, Mail, etc.) I like to place at the right upper corner. Where did you found yours? It looks fine.

    Cheers, Nico

  16. Thanks for sharing your info. I really appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting for your further write ups thanks once again.
