Thanks for this module - it's just what we needed. Works great right out of the box, and the instructions for customizing each part of the module are very helpful. Thank you!

It is very easy to use with good support documentation. I am a complete newbie and managed to install it and get it to work, having tried and failed with another addthis extension. Perhaps would prefer it if it was in the article itself, rather than as a module, but overall really happy with it.

Thanks for the good words, I'm glad you were satisfied with it. In the near future there is a possibility to make a plugin that utilizes the script from AddThis. For now you could use Joomla's own "Load Module" plugin, in order to display the module within an article. I have a tutorial on my website on how to do that, check it out if you want.
