ShareThis 2.1

ShareThis version 2.1 is now available for download. I’ve been running version 2.1 on this site for a little while now without incident – it’s working nicely.

This new release adds several often requested features, and fixes a couple of issues:

  • You can now use a template tag to explicitly add ShareThis to your theme wherever you want it to appear.
  • There are now separate settings for adding ShareThis to posts and pages automatically. For example, if you want, you can set up a template tag for where ShareThis appears in posts, and let it auto-add to pages.
  • The JavaScript code inserted into the page header is now XHTML compliant.
  • There was a conflict with the Prototype JavaScript library that has been fixed.
  • Changes were made to better handle other plugins that futz around with the priority of the default WordPress filters. We can’t cover 100% of these situations, but we should be in good shape for the vast majority of them.
  • Fixed a bug where activating any plugin would cause ShareThis 2.1b1 to forget the options you had chosen and revert to defaults.

Also, we’ve launched new support forums, so that’s the best place to report issues and request features moving forward. By posting issues in the ShareThis forums, they will receive attention ASAP.
