Whitelist Communication with Shareaholic APIs

Follow

In order to use Shareaholic's Admin Console, it needs to be able to communicate with Shareaholic.com API's to fetch and save settings. You will see this (or very similar) message in the Admin Console if this communication is being blocked:

To fix this, you need to make sure either shareaholic.com or your website (depending on where you're accessing the Admin Console) is whitelisted from any browser ad or content blocking programs. This will allow the Shareaholic Admin Console to work while still allowing you to browse other sites without ads. The steps to do this are similar across most blockers.

How to fix this for the most popular ad blockers:

If you don’t see your blocker listed or if you require further assistance, please contact us.
