This plugin uses the ShareThis buttons to allow users to share your users' stuff on various social networks.

To get this plugin working follow these simple steps (kindly note that as such it won't work at all):

A. Before you install the plugin:

1. Go to and register

2. Choose the format of the sharethis plugin you would like to see working on your community

3. Copy the body part of the code

4. Open mod/Sharethis/views/default/Sharethis/Sharethis.php (currently void)

5. Paste the code and save.

B. After the modifications are applied:

1. Upload the Sharethis plugin to your '/mod' directory by FTP

2. In the Admin panel, activate the plugin

3. Flush the cache

4. It works.

Do not change the elements/head.php as it is loading the javascript from sharethis.
