And PS -- I have this installed on my site currently to NOT open the pop-up. Instead, I'm allowing it to open into its own page, until I have get a handle on how many of my readers actually keep Javascript on! (Which is about 50% of my site's viewers at current count.)

Alex, Is there any chance you can update this plug-in to work across pages in 2.3? I would be greatly appreciative if you did this for the community (and well, me too!) I would like to implement Share This for the basic premiss that I feel has the most potential to become an actual standard icon. I like some standards. Some standards just plain make all the sense in the world.

Oh - and one other thing I thought would be cool... A "Print" tab to go with the other two.

I've had to drop this plugin since moving to Wordpress 2.3 and MistyLook 3.5. No problem on the post pages but the About and Archives and Email pages were messed up. I suppose it was the theme, but fyi anyway.

planner, the Share This plugin has always opened an inline window by default. It only reverts to a full page view in the event it has been incorrectly installed. Chris, the plan is for the platform plugins (WordPress and others) to all be Open Source. Consider the Share Icon in the same manner as the feed icon. The feed icon is owned by Mozilla, but they have released it for all to use. ShareThis is doing the same with the Share Icon.

Hey Alex, congrats. Your Share This plugin certainly is a good one and I'm glad to see the work continued on it. I'd like to repeat two questions that you asked yourself to try to get a clearer answer: first, will subsequent versions of the plugin remain open source? Second, have you considered a continuous, ongoing license for the Share This icon? I know you said that the new owner will do the right thing, but whuffie is non-transferrable, and so saying they'll do the right thing is a lot different from *you* saying you'll do the right thing. In any case, I do hope, since the logo went through a community process in the beginning, that it remains available under an open-license and that the new owners don't attempt to assert ownership or control over it now that it's being used in the wild.

just from the share this blog site and noticed that they have a share this icon to email a post to firends that opens in a lightbox. Very neat. Hopefully the ShareThis bookmarker will have the same feature.

Suggestion: It would be really nice if the default behavior of ShareThis is to open in a popup window, or even better, a lightbox window instead of opening in the parent window,
