I am trying to test the ShareThis module on a blog post. I have installed the ShareThis module on my site using SilverStripe 2.3.3. I followed all instructions (unpacked, installed, /dev/build?flush=1). I inserted the line of code in _config.php to activate sharing with Digg, Stumbleupon, and Email. In the behaviour tab, I have the box checked for "Show Share Icons on this page ?" and inserted the $ShareThis code in my content. When I go to the page, I see the code instead of the icons. Here's the url to the page in question:

I'm wondering if there is a compatibility issue with SS 2.3.3 or if there is something I need to do that I haven't in order to make it function properly.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

You have to put $ShareThis in the template - NOT in the content/wysiwyg in the CMS :)

Beware though that it's an old module, and I just found out it uses code that doesn't exist anymore:

You'll have to change line 97 of ShareThis.php from

$page_url = Director::absoluteBaseURL().Director::currentURLSegment();


$page_url = Director::absoluteBaseURL().Director::currentPage()->URLSegment;

Also note that Magnolia is dead. :)

Thanks for the reply. I was unaware that the module is outdated. I think I'll avoid the possible conflict it could create.
