    Thanks for your Jetpack Extras plugin–I really liked having the share buttons at the top and bottom, for mobile users. The activation of this plugin, however, changed my various Featured Categories Slider widgets on my home page ( The buttons started showing up at the top and bottom of the excerpts of each of the featured posts in the sliders–obviously overkill! (Previously the buttons were not there at all.) Since this is special case, I don’t expect you to have a fix, but if you HAVE run into this with other users of your plugin, please let me know if there’s a solution. I had to deactivate your plugin in the meantime.

      That is a odd one. I’ll see if I can figure out a fix!
