    I have make php now of 5.6 now go also twitter.
    But the social button over the content don´t want
    i can´t see it also not.

    I have enable “AddThis Social” but nothing to see
    Must i also have a “AddThis Publisher ID”?

    Maybe you have a idea?


  3. Jörg

    The circles from google+ show not, what can it be?
    Have you a idea?

    1. Jörg

      Now i can also not see the followers from twitter, is everytime count 0

      1. Richie KS

        did you save the twitter dev api? i would recommend try other social plugin, the social jet plugin had some deprecated functions and not PHP7 compatible at this version.

    2. Richie KS

      google+ count on this plugin is currently deprecated.

    First, thank you for the awesome plug-in!
    I use Mesocolumn theme with Social Jet plug-in. I enabled ‘first image grab for featured thumbnails’ and inserted an image in the post only. When click share via Facebook, the image is not displayed. I inserted an image and set up as a featured image for a test, but same, that image is not displayed either for Facebook sharing. Please advise how to display an image with the post on Facebook when click the sharing icon?

        Hi Richie,
        Thanks! It’s magically working after debuting the URL of the post. The image of that particular post is displayed on Facebook through the share icon, but is ‘debug (through the link tool I just did)’ required every time when I share any particular post from the website? Is there any permanent fix?

        1. Richie KS

          not sure, if debug pass then sharing shouldn’t have error and there’s no need to debug everytime.
          although if you had just publish the post, and share it within second, it might need to refresh a bit before it share properly.
