Share This not Working

  • 3090861

    Hi everyone,

    I’m installing WP Mu + BuddyPress to launch a social network to rotaract clubs here in Brazil, but my BuddyPress instalation is showing a boring bug. ShareThis is not working in ‘Site activity’ widget, causing this bug:

    Instead of showing sharethis link, apears this code -> SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: ””, url: ”” });

    What can i do to resolve it ?

    The problem can be seen in

    Its happening too in “Activities from ‘username’ ” and can be seen in my profile page



    maybe try using the advanced excerpt plugin + exec-php so that you can call the script through the sharethis php tags, because i think the default excerpt strips everything to only show plain text.


    This could be a way, but not solve Buddypress problem, just make it work by other way..

    Somebody could help me to solve this Bug ?

    First of all, this more than likely is not an issue with BuddyPress, but an issue with the Share This plugin.

    You need to contact the developer of that plugin and ask them if their plugin works with BuddyPress. It does not mention that it does. Second, if you are running WPMU 2.8.1, then ask them when they plan to put out an upgrade for 2.8.1.

    I’m having the same problem with the ShareThis plugin. What’s weird is that you didn’t get that annoying code — SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: ””, url: ”” }); — with BuddyPress 1.0, only subsequent versions. You can see it in action on my site at

    I see the same thing happening with the Popularity Contest plugin automatically adding code into the “Featured Members” part of the site:

    AKPC_IDS += \”,\”;

    Popularity: unranked [?]

    I’ve already contacted the plugin authors to notify them. But anyone on here have an idea what might be causing these issues? As I mentioned above, they’ve only cropped up in the latest revisions to buddypress


    Still needing some help !

    And we’re still going to tell you to contact the developer of that plugin, gugaalves!


    Why can use “Addthis” instead of Sharethis, see my working example:



    Sociable is way less ugly than either of those and does the same thing.

    Finally had a chance to talk to Andy Peatling about this at WordCamp NYC this weekend. These problems are caused by one of the way the activity streams were updated in BP. The quick fix he gave me:

    In /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity/bp-activity-template-tags.php

    Line 255:

    $content = apply_filters( ‘the_content’, $content );

    Completely remove that line and save the file. That should fix the issue.

    Worked like a charm for me.
