Hi I have had this widget shared on blogger for some time now and it has suddenly disappeared from my blog posts.

I need it back on or will have to go find another share widget site that works.

Hello User,

It seems you have blocked the ShareThis widget DIV in your code -
<div class="widget-content" style="display: none;">

Please remove the display:none property and it should work.

Hello Kelly,

It seems that something in your website code is conflicting with ShareThis cod and hence the buttons are not showing-up.
We suggest you to try manually adding the ShareThis code to your site. You can check the screenshot -

This is coming after adding the below code to your existing code of Blogger -

<span class='st_sharethis' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_facebook' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_twitter' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_email' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_pinterest' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_plusone' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_googleplus' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_linkedin' displayText=''></span>
<span class='st_stumbleupon' displayText=''></span>

Or below are the complete steps, if you want to add the complete code manually to your site -
Please make sure that you are following the precise steps to add the ShareThis code manually.
If you want to add the buttons manually to your blog, here're the exact steps:

1. Login to blogger.
2. Navigate to dashboard. On this page, you will see the list of blogs. Select "Template" from the drop-down for the blog to which you want to add the buttons.
3. Click on "Edit HTML" button.
4. Proceed->Check the checkbox "Expand Widget Templates" for the blog.
5. You can get the sharethis code (by selecting website platform )from here;

Please put sharethis <script > tags in the header (between <head> and </head>) and sharethis<span> tag below the lines:

<div class='post-header'>
<div class='post-header-line-1'/>
in the code of your blog and save template. This will add sharethis button to your blog(in each post below the title of the post).

If you wish to add the buttons at the bottom of post, you'll need to add span tags below the line:
Please note that sharethis buttons on each post share the blog page url by default .

You can use the span tag as follows, in order to share the link of a post :

<span class='st_service' expr:st_url='data:post.url' expr:st_title='data:post.title'></span>

I hope this helps.
In case of any issues, please feel free to contact us
