@arpowers@Witte Until this is sorted out you need to provide a bespoke option as this isn't nearly professional enough for the brand you're trying to promote. I can see offering these as a config option but you should "at least" offer the old style as a config option too. At this point I'd resist upgrading for this reason as it seems to cheapen the brand of my website.

Sorry to be harsh but a little "javascript cool" can be pretty uncool when you're using mixed implementations, it creates layout delays, you loose layout control, and the various providers have inconsistent layout. I really think for your target audience (aka, professional and willing to pay $$$ for the theme) they're going to line up much more strongly on the "make it look professional" versus "make it look cool" side of the fence.

I like the direction but not the implementation of the new sharebar. I think you're going to need to provide a few more config options to please the masses too. For instance having numerics against the share icons is good for some site and bad for others. Also, you need a simple way -- not unlike what Wordpress offers as part of their new Jetpack -- to embed sharing at the summary level on the main blog page rather than just at the individual blog page. Let's face it ... people are often just reading summaries and then wanting credit for having read the whole thing. ;^)
