AddThis WordPress Plugin Redux

As a holiday present from us to you, we’ve finally updated our WordPress plugin. It’s way more customizable, and integrated with the WordPress dashboard so you don’t have to know anything about PHP to make changes.

Download it here:

As always, we appreciate your feedback! Many of the features of this new plugin came straight out of forum discussions.

Enjoy!

  • Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /var/www/path/to/website/wp-content/plugins/addthis/addthis_social_widget.php on line 35

    I am using wordpress 2.6.5 any idea why this plugin is failing?

  • I love the plug in but when I tried to update it this morning, I get the following fatal error message in wordpress:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ on line 35

    I was on version 2.6.1. I just upgraded to version 2.7, deleted the old plug in. Installed it fresh and get the same error.

    Hey guys, as you probably have figured out, our plugins were only compatible with PHP5.

    However, we’ve backported to PHP4! You’ll see the old-school version in the /php4 directory if you download it fresh from

  • MJK. I am afraid that even with the new version I still get the same error message. I think it is something to do with the PHP version. Any help would be great!

  • Thanks. I love this plugin (and I have had no problems using it with WordPress 2.7 with PHP5).

  • It would be great if your WordPress plugin would provide the ability to choose where the button is placed within the post content itself – like options for it to appear “top left”, “top right”, bottom left” or “bottom right”. The WP-SphinnIt plugin provides that functionality and it would be great if your AddThis plugin did the same.

    Hi there!
    I’ve installed the plugin and it works fine. Thanks for it!
    I would like to know how can I change the place the plugin button appears.
    I want to place it on the right side of the posts.
    Thanks and regards.

    Is there an AddThis Moveable Type plugin?

    Running WordPress 2.7.1 with PHP5 and still getting:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /home/.abreactions/rmspangler/robspangler.com/wp-content/plugins/addthis/addthis_social_widget.php on line 40

    Anyone find a fix yet?

    It would be nice to offer a version of the plugin that is stats-only. Or offer a better way to place the widget on the page.

    I customize it heavily, especially where I place it. Plus I just started using an email button – which I just read about in the customizing section.

    But it would be nice to be able to see the stats right in my WP dashboard instead of having to log in here. Especially if people run more than one site with addthis widgets.

    Activated the addthis plugin (1.5.3). But the Settings menu does not show at all for me to add my site specific details. So nothing shows up in the posts. I’m using WP 2.1.7 with Php5.
