Thumbs down Removing Shareaholic!

IMPORTANT: I will be removing this plugin from every blog I manage and recommending everyone I know to do the same.

Their announcement certainly generated a lot of "feedback", didn't it?

I have a feeling the FTC would be VERY interested in Shareaholic's decision to implement this without the users specifically opting in. I am guessing this is a very SERIOUS violation.

Done.

Beware, while I updating one site to deactivate this I updated to WP 4 and am now locked out of my own blog.

Have you found any other reports on issues with WP4?

Do you happen to have a plugin called "Better WP Security"?

I updated 2 hours ago and have had no issued... had a few plugins to update in which I suggest you update the plugins first before updating to 4.0

Some plugins may be the cause of your issue.

I have not use sharaholic in a few months. In fact, I didn't use them when I started my new blog in May. I have a sharing plugin that is not released to the public for download yet. Only certain people have access to this plugin for now. I just use another plugin for the related posts.


(I have to see if I need to update my theme files but no issues so far)
