    I too noticed this around the same time. The problem occurs across browsers and websites. I never would have associated it to my WordPress Blog. I’ll give this a shot and see what happens. — thanks

    I read this post with fascination, as I am suddenly plagued with 90% of my blog’s URLS not linking properly. All get 404’s.
    I had noticed recently that all my URLs had the /#.(characters) appended after the URL.
    I didn’t know why, concluding it has something to do with tracking. Boy, was I mad when I discovered my links are all broken.

    I tried unchecking that setting in AddThis, refreshing, emptying cache, etc, but the issue persists, Also tried deleting my Google Analyitics ID from AddThis settings, as that was mentioned in another post on this same issue.

    Can you possibly check my blog and see what might still be causing this maddening issue?

    Im getting emails about it, and I’m stumped!

    thanks a TON!

      Hi Dave,

      my money would actually be on your permalink structure or web server configuration. I’d check that everything is correct under Settings -> Permalinks. Ensure also that your .htacess file matches what you see on that page.

    I was about to post this in Blogger Help. But you solved it so easily. Can anyone tell me, if it affects SEO or Google analytics stats??

      It only affects AddThis’ analytics, so both SEO and Google Analytics are unaffected by this.

    Thankyou for your post. Initially I thought my site was hacked, but reading your post saved my day.

    Thanks for posting this! It was driving me crazy trying to figure out where the extra URL text was coming from. This was the only site I found on the topic.

    I just had a client that was experiencing a variation on this AddThis problem. They had installed a widget manually on their site and used the script option

    I changed that from True to false

    That solved the problem and removed the odd tracking code at the end of the url.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I got planning to publish this specific inside Doodlekit Aid. However you resolved that thus effortlessly. Can anyone show me, whether it influences SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION or perhaps Yahoo and google statistics numbers??

    One unticked box ( address bar shares: ) solved the issue. So damn simple 😀
    However, you’ve made it simple with your blog post.
    Thank you very much.
