Hi Glynis,

Go to Blog Manager then click on the 'settings' tab and add the code inside the 'disqus comments' box. Then your Share This button will appear at the bottom of every post.

Just figured out - if you put the "Share This" code above the Disqus "show comments" code, you then share posts; if you put the code below, you then share the whole blog.

Hello Teena - I'm not able to see the ShareThis code added to your blog page settings. Would you be able to post the code from ShareThis here so that we can take a look and try to add it for you? If you could remember to wrap it in <!-- and --> so that it isn't interpreted in the post:

<!--
add HTML code here
-->

Now, could anyone tell me how I can use these buttons for say a picture (on my site)? Instead of sharing a whole page...how can I make it so it will share an individual item that's on my page?

Hello Teena

I am not aware of a way to add it to a particular picture. As far as I know, the "Share This" is intended for blog posts or websites. Perhaps others who have had experience with this can chime in with their suggestions and advice.
