Here is a URL: http://www.mikeshupp.com/music/

If you click the Facebook "Share" button, when the Post to Profile window pops up, you will see in the content excerpt that the very first word of text is "Share"... now granted, you can click on that text and edit to your liking, but I doubt most users want to be bothered with that, or will even notice that option to begin with. My question is why is that word there, where is it coming from?

I've done quite a bit of troubleshooting on this to no avail... Also, as you can see I have the Sociable plugin buttons at the bottom of the post -- I have tried deactivating the Sociable plugin, but that has no effect on this issue.

There is a way to prevent it from showing. But you have to do a very small editing work.
1. Open the file socializer-facebook.php
2. Goto line no 94
3. Remove the word "Share"

Code: Select all

'<a name="fb_share" type="' . $wpsr_facebook_shstyle . '" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=' . $permalink . '&amp;t=' . $title . '">-----------------> Share <-------------</a>' .

(the arrows are just indications)
4. Save the file.

Also this is already corrected in the version 2 which is currently being developed.
Regards !

I made the edit:

Code: Select all

'<a name="fb_share" type="' . $wpsr_facebook_shstyle . '" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=' . $permalink . '&amp;t=' . $title . '"></a>' .
(it was at line 90 in my file, btw) however, to no avail -- the word "Share" still appears in the content excerpt. Interestingly I've noticed it also appears in Google search results of my site, also when a Trackback is posted...
Any further thoughts?
