This module is by far one of the best I have seen! 5/5 stars

Owner's reply: Thank you for the positive review AwakenHumanity :)

Easy and powerful

Once you understand how to use the numerous options, this module comes in really handy. It's quite easy really to simply list the AddThis services you want to use...

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind words OldLodgeSkins!

Excellent plugin!

Excellent add in. Actually makes Add This a little bit better - and it's already sweet!



I really liked the option for the larger icons, which I find pretty - albeit you can customise add this, it has saved me some trouble!



Adds a tonne more options besides! Really takes a sweet add on to another level.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the review and the feedback too Eoin!

Almost perfect

Almost flawless, except the Google Plus options only show on the first article when viewing multiple articles in blog mode (J 1.5).

Owner's reply: This is a module and thus it shares only the URL of the current page. For sharing multiple articles use the plugin ValAddThis. If you really found some bug please let me know by writing to me the details. Thanks.

Having researched numerous options to start adding Social Media Links to our websites I can say that this is a truly excellent module (and the Plugin's great too) having used both.



The speed and ease this module gives for multiple posts to the different social media sites is awesome. Dead easy to install as well. And it works on iPads/iPhones.



Only one suggestion, a bit more choice when it comes to positioning (allowing the buttons to appear centered for instance) would be good.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review jfrewin5. Actually it is possible to position the AddThis buttons or toolbox however you want, just by using the "Module class suffix" option which applies a user-defined CSS class to the module.

Simply Perfect

Owner's reply: You're welcome zaczac and thanks for the vote too!

Awesome module

Created an account just to leave this review. Excellent module, installed easily with excellent configuration (once you get the hang of AddThis). Thanks to the developer.

Owner's reply: Thank you too for the kind words meddison :)

Great Docs


Posted on 25 January 2011

Firstly - I would have given 5 stars but nobody's perfect, there are a couple of additions I'd like to see.



I run joomgallery and have been looking for a way to add social bookmarking to it (not included by default or joomgallery plugin which is a little strange). The component has a couple of it's own module positions so I wanted something to plug straight into there. Tried a few of the facebook/twitter modules but none were exactly what I wanted.



This module fitted straight into the gallery, previews worked and I had it looking exactly the way I wanted to within a few minutes.



Documentation on their site is great, considering it's a fairly small and straightforward module they have several pages worth. Would be good to see this level of documentation for more extensions!



In future versions I'd like to see features like the beta sharecount buttons, an option for the 32x32 icons (although I just added " addthis_32x32_style" to the module class suffix and it works fine) and perhaps a dropdown with a few popular combinations of services for the toolbox.



Great module!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the vote and the suggestions recedo. Some of these features (sharecount button, 32x32 icons etc) are already implemented in the plugin version of ValAddThis; a future version for the module will include them as well.

5 Stars!

This is really great! Thank you very much for this! Installation and configuration is so easy!

Owner's reply: You're very welcome and thanks for the vote senyorito!

Great extension!


Posted on 25 November 2010

I like this extension very much, it's the best there is!

I just wish there was an option to modify the default "send to" tooltip, just as there is in the plugin.

Thanx!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words Chwiszczuk! The option for a user-defined "Send to" tooltip text will be added in the next version of the module.
