IntroductionThis module is compatible with Joomla version 1.5 and it uses the Bookmarking services of AddThis.com. For a complete list of the AddThis features take a look at this page. The module ValAddThis allows the easy configuration as well the display of the AddThis Button or AddThis Toolbox. It produces valid markup for XHTML as well as for CSS. ValAddThis is free software, which has been released under the GNU/GPL v2.0 license.
Current version 2.0.2 supports the latest AddThis Menu API 2.0, in combination with the old API 1.0 (which is still used to display an RSS-Feed button). With the new ValAddThis you're also able to display the new AddThis Toolbox.
Go to your Joomla administration backend and on the menu Extensions and click on "Install/Uninstall". Upload the file contained here by clicking on "Browse..." and selecting the zipped file. Click on "Upload file & Install". Now the module "ValAddThis" is installed in Joomla and you can use it.

4. Open Issues
The following are issues of the AddThis script and not of the module itself:
When the AddThis Button parameter "Display on" is set to "Mouse click" and used in conjunction with the AddThis Toolbox, some of the Toolbox icons (like email) don't behave properly. This isn't an issue of the module itself, rather an issue of the AddThis script and thus it cannot be fixed from me, unless AddThis fixes it. AddThis seems to have some bugs in their script, regarding IE 6 compatibility. Users that try to open a web-page with the AddThis button are getting a "runtime error"; at their Forum they said they will fix all these IE issues as soon as possible. Try their Forum for further support.
Please vote for the module at the web-page of Joomla Extensions. Thank you!
