I am having the same problem as the below poster, who asked this question in september. I cut and pasted this code as instructed, but it does not work. Did you write the code correctly? I ask because after entering it and saving, the addthis settings panel always deletes the first line of code dealing with position. It appears there is a positioning problem with the code you provided below. Thank you!
I downloaded the AddThis plugin for Wordpress to my hosted site (not at Wordpress.org or Wordpress.com but at a third-party WP host). I'm using the default horizontal bar/buttons, but I'd like to have a floating vertical bar instead...and I don't see the option for that, even though AddThis apparently does make these available elsewhere. How do I get these? And, how can I configure what's shown without knowing how to modify code? I'm not a coder. I'm a novice. I want E-Mail, Print, Facebook Share and maybe Save shown as option besides Facebook Like, Tweet, Google +1 and the Share box. Please advise me ASAP. Thanks!

Click the "more options" link on the AddThis settings page, then select "Custom Button" and enter this into the text area:
<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_floating_style addthis_counter_style" style="left:50px;top:50px;">
<a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="box_count"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_tweet" tw:count="vertical"></a>
<a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="tall"></a>
Then save the changes. You might have to adjust the left and top values to get it to display correctly.
