This question could apply to any Studiopress child theme…
I have tried several social sharing plugins (add this, share this, sharaholic, etc) and want to only have it display on posts or pages. But, they all show up on my home page featured page widgets. I’m have the checkbox checked for “show page content”. I’m using the “more” tag for each page to force what text is displayed on the home page text area and the social sharing icons appear on the home page. I notice that when I use “Content Character Limit”, the social sharing plugins don’t show up, but I’m unable to put the exact text that I want in the home page feature page widget area on the home page. It automatically adds too many words, even when I use the exact characters needed.
How can I use a social sharing plugin but not have it display on the home page? This seems like it should be easy! Thanks for the help.http://www.rslcs.org/December 17, 2013 at 11:51 pm #79887

Hello, I have almost exactly the same problem. I’m using the Outreach theme, and have tried many of the same social networking Share plugins, but can’t get the configuration I want: to have social networking icon/links occur only on left-column homepage posts and/or categories, but NOT in the widget sidebar. Also, separately for individual posts on other pages (custom application of social icons per individual posts).
I too get unwanted text, and tag!, showing up near the icons when the plugins are activated.
In general, would love to have simple FB, Twitter, and Instagram buttons for sharing, placed at bottom of individual selected posts (not in widget sidebar), with no extra text showing.
Could probably hard-code individual button images with an href link for each individual post, but this is not a good solution for my client.
Thank you Andrea and thanks jlong230 for the question!December 18, 2013 at 2:55 pm #80013
I’ve activated the Sharaholic plugin again, but I can only do it for a day or so. Barbara, I hope Andrea can help us outDecember 18, 2013 at 4:11 pm #80037

In your Shareaholic settings, are the sharing options for Index unchecked? It’s checked by default. I’ve just unchecked it on a test site and the sharing buttons aren’t showing on the Home Featured areas.

Yes, the Index option is unchecked for both Sharing and Related Content. I’ve tried about 5 other sharing plugins and they all show up on the home page widgets.December 23, 2013 at 7:11 am #80868

That got rid of the “sharing is caring part”, but I’m wanting to get rid of all the sharing buttons on the home page. I’ve unchecked the Index options in the Sharaholic settings, but it’s still displays on the home page.
I’ve tried multiple other social sharing plugins and they all show on the home page. If there is a better/easier social sharing plugin that I can customize not to show up on the home page then I’d gladly switch.
Thanks for the help so far.December 23, 2013 at 7:48 am #80873December 23, 2013 at 7:50 am #80874December 23, 2013 at 8:47 am #80885
Thanks for the help! This worked like a charm. Thank you so much.
