Hello,

I copied a bit of add-this code onto the site and it was working quite well for a while, but now it is displaying strangely. I tried to simplify the code I copied in, but it still comes up with "recommended" links that look like broken links of some sort. Do you have any suggestions? I quite like add-this and I'd like to keep it.

I took a look at this over the weekend.

1st... the recommended items are vertical. That will unlikely to look ok. Can you switch it to horizontal?

2nd... I'm not sure 4 books will fit ever on the home page. Perhaps it can do a 2 x 2 grid?

3rd... I disabled the home page and moved the code to the footer. If horizontal it should work there but is at the bottom of the page.

Hello,

I appreciate you taking the time to look this over. I'm not sure exactly where the recommendations even came from. I'm not opposed to having them be horizontal, or having them disappear altogether, but I don't know where to adjust them. It looks like they are part of addthis, so I'm not sure if you would know that either, but I don't see that I have any recommendations turned on. The weirdness even appears to happen when I remove the code altogether, so I'm afraid I'm really in the dark!

I have tried again just now simply to remove the code. When I delete it or overwrite it, and then save, it simply returns when I log in again. I am looking at the 'general store settings' page in admin.

Thanks, that seemed to fix it.
