Description

The authors of ShareThis have rebuilt the plugin "from the bottom up." I don't think our version works very well anymore. Can we deprecate it in favor of the new plugin?

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Scott. The new plugin has a different slug, making it a totally different plugin. I assume this means that there's not an automated upgrade from the old version. I suggest installing the new one, and keeping the old one but hiding it from being activated. Does this seem correct to you?

Sounds good to me. Thanks
