I am trying to add the following 'add this' code to my website but it isn't showing. Have tried putting it in <p></p> which has worked with other codes in the past?

<!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style">
<a class="addthis_button_facebook"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_email"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_print"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_compact"></a>
<script type="text/javascript">var addthis_config = {"data_track_addressbar":true};</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<!-- AddThis Button END -->

a little info about where you add the code and such, would be helpfull.

remember to add ?flush=1 to the URL when making changes to template files - this forces SS not to use cached files.

I want to add this directly to a web page.

If you are trying to add the code in the TinyMCE editor, i guess the script tags will be stripped out.
Try having a look at the source code, what is actually coming out from the editor.

I think you should add the code to your template file instead.

Another option is to create a simple Textarea (without editor) and output the in the template.

But tinymce can be configured to allow script as well right....?? I have tried it by adding HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOptions(array(
'extended_valid_elements' => "*

  • "

    to mysite/_config.php...but script tags are getting stripped...any idea where this is happening?

I would create a new text area field and drop the code in there.. or put it directly into the page template
