  1. Can I use MyShariff in a module?
    Yes! Go to the MyShariff settings under "Module & Content-Tag" and activate one of the both option: "Plugin & Tag" or "Only tag". After that, you create a custom module with the MyShariff Tag: { myshariff } (without spaces). You can now set the module on your favorite position.
  2. I see more social button rows at the site?
    Other extensions can make problems (e.g. jEvent calender). One solution is, you test the first point. Activate the "Only tag" option and create a custom module.
    The last solution is you can use the "Exclude" Option for the erroneous site areas.
