Oh my god…I think I fixed it!
Okay, so here’s the deal…I’ve been trying for a month to get rid of this link bar that floats on the left side of my SimplySmartDinnerPlans (WordPress.org) website….to no avail.
Searched and searched, and no one seemed to have an answer (but lots of folks had the same problem.)
(Are you starting to feel my pain?)
Hovering over the “Share” button showed a reference to “AddThis”
Naturally, I deleted every reference to AddThis, and the AddThis plug-in I could find, I changed my cache plug-in, even changed my theme…everything that anyone even remotely suggested might work…nothing did.
Then…today…I was cleaning up and reorganizing some of my widgets, and I didn’t like the way the Facebook Like Box (Jetpack) widget looked in my sidebar, so I opened it up to explore my options.
Look what I found…
Except…where it says, “Enable Other Social Buttons”, mine was toggled to “Yes”.
I switched it to “No” (because there wasn’t a “Oh, HELL No!” option…) hit “Save”, and then refreshed my page. BOOM – floating link bar GONE!
Opened up my iPhone and iPad and checked the pages from there, and there was my beautiful, unobstructed website in all her glory!
Now, I don’t know if this is THE fix, but I can say that it worked for me, and I hope it does for you as well. Now, I’m off to share this link on about a hundred forums, lol.
