    Would be cool to be able to manually insert the button either with a shortcode or php.

    Awesome+ I was just coming to the forum to ask the exact thing: "Please add an option to manually insert the button and a template tag to insert it".

    I can now just leave both boxes unchecked and use do_shortcode('[pinit]') to place it in next to my other sharing buttons

    One note, unless it was turned off when updated, I think you changed where you stored the option because after updating (and before putting code in to manually display) the pinterest button stopped showing… could haven't just been me though.

    Also, personally I really don't like the settings for this being added to the sidebar instead of under Settings :(

    I also don't think it it deserves its own spot on the sidebar because it is really just a set it and leave it type plugin. The sidebar should be only used for plugins we access regularly.

    Not complaining though...

    I'm glad I was able to add it next to my social media buttons too.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    #1) I understand wanting to have it in a submenu, but I had several folks tell me they didn't easily find the plugin settings after they installed it. I wonder if you can add an option to move it to the submenu...

    #2) Of the top things to add is styling options. There are a ton of share bars out there so CSS adjustments will be different for everyone.

    Many people will ALWAYS have trouble finding plugin settings, but it's probably most often because they've never used a plugin with settings before.

    One setting I'd like to see is the ability to show the count bubble even when the count is 0. It makes for a more consistent look. Just put it on http://foodpractice.com/ using manual placement to appends it to manually placed sharethis buttons.

    The other option that is sometimes. I've with these types of plugins is to disable it on a single page. (ie. metabox post editor saying check here to not display pinterest on this post)... Might be a bad idea for performance reasons though...
