I’m getting e-mails (and comments) from people asking where they can get a copy of Share This (my social web/e-mail plugin for WordPress) for:
- Moveable Type (and TypePad)
- Firefox Extension
- Safari Extension
- Greasemonkey scripts for inclusion in web-based apps like Bloglines, Google Reader, etc.
- Add more in the comments…
I haven’t built add-ons for most of these platforms before, so I’d love to work with folks who do have experience on these platforms port it over. I set up a Share This/Share Icon developers forum to help get things started.
If you want to port Share This to another platform leave a comment, head over to the forum or get in touch and we’ll get it built.
This post is part of the following projects: Share Icon, ShareThis. View the project timelines for more context on this post.
Movable Type users can use the Promote This plugin: http://www.majordojo[...]ote_this.php
That will be great as a code sample. Of course, it doesn’t work at all like the Share This plugin so one is still needed.
I could see this being useful beyond simply blogs, but also in message boards. Being able to easily share a thread from a message board would be fantastic. I’m very biased and would love to see a phpBB version of it. 🙂
I just wanted to drop a line and let you know I absolutley love your Share This plugin and am using it on my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to develop and share this with the WordPress community!
I just created a port for Expression Engine, which can be found here:
I added an additional paramater (orientation) to let the user decide where to put the layer.
Alex, I really appreciate this plugin and use it in my blogs.
I have a question (as I’m not much of a techie): I’d like to use it on .htm pages (older articles I wrote on my websites). Is there any way to do that with the plugin as is or would it require special coding?
Thanks a lot
Hey, Alex. Love your blog. And, I’m amazed by the beaty and simplicity of your Share This plaug-in. It makes me wish I were a WordPress user. Alas, I am not that technical and kidna need the turnkey aspects of TypePad.
I hope you will consider making a TypePad version of Share This. I think it would be very popular. While I can’t say I have the money to help fund development, if you sell it as a product, I’d pay $50 for it. I bet others would too. Take care!
I want to be able to put this on my website… in place of Add This bookmarker.
I like the idea of one icon… any plans or any ideas how I can just put this in the pages of my html website?
I’d love to use this on blogger. It’s fantastic!!
There is a widget version available now:
Thank for getting a widget version of it. Great job
I am pretty new to your blog, but it definitely has some great information. I will definitely be coming back for more. Thanks man!
I think ShareThis is the best social sharing plug-in currently available. Most plug-ins slow down page loading times while icons and other information is transferred from a remote host. With ShareThis the transfer only occurs when a user clicks on the “ShareThis” link.
It is a shame to see that the last post found in the developer forums is from 2007.
Ohh cool. I’m on blogger now and I’ve always wanted to try out the ShareThis plug-in. Its one of the best plug-ins I’ve come across. Please let us know when you release the plug-in for the other platform. thanks in advance. Cheers

I’ve been looking for a plugin like this for ages. Thank you very much. Traffic is already up in the little while I’ve been using it.
