    Greetings – thanks to all for the help thus far. I’m trying to add share buttons for various social networking sites (Facebook, Linkedin, etc.) I went to Settings, Sharing, etc., but when I added the buttons they posted to my Static homepage (triciaannemitchell.com) and not my Blog page (triciaannemitchell.com/blog).

    How can I get the share buttons to post on my actual Blog page, and not my Static page?

    Many thanks for your help.
    Tricia

    @triciaannmitchell Make sure that you’ve selected to have them show on “posts, pages, and index pages.” You can then disable them on any selected posts or pages if you don’t want them there.

    That option is right at the bottom of the page near the save changes button.

    @mmadfan – Super! Thank you so very much! I spent more than an hour seeking out this fix, and your guidance allowed me to make the correction in a matter of seconds.

    Hi there, I followed these instructions many months ago and it worked like a charm. But this week on my most recent post suddenly the like button no longer works. It’s there but it can’t be clicked on. Is any one else having this problem? Is it possible wordpress has disabled my ability to have both share & like buttons?

    Important update for everyone: due to a change in the way Sharing Services work, you need to make sure to set your Button Style is “Official Buttons” for this workaround to be succesful. Otherwise, you’ll end up with two Facebook share buttons.

    I can’t send you the link because I can’t access your dashboard.

    Another user asked for more detailed instructions, I gave them and she was able to change the settings perfectly, so you can do it too.

    The “right down arrow” is no longer there.

    Thank You. Simple two words, but there is lot more said behind them.

    @thejakob: This (very very long) thread is about Facebook. For the sake of organization, please start a separate topic and we’ll take it from there:

    How is this new functionality? Hasn’t the “make your own” custom share buttons been around awhile or is there something specifically new that happened on Sept 4th that added additional functionality? I’ve had both FB buttons for over a month and don’t see anything different in the way they function (..at least I hope not!)
