Click on the first menu option My Site and then Add Profile. You will see the following screen.
Enter the name of your profile and click Add. You will then be taken to the profile general settings.
Under “General” section you will see ID value. This is your AddThis profile ID. AddThis profile ID will look like “ra-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”. Copy and save your profile ID because you will need to enter in EasyDNNnews module.

Here you can customize the number, design and other options for sharing buttons. When done press Save & Continue. After that, you are done on the AddThis website. Now go to your website. Go to EasyDNNnews module, open Dashboard control and then open API connections Control.
In the AddThis section, enter AddThis profile ID you’ve previously created and click Add or update AddThis profile ID.
Now the sharing buttons you created should appear in the EasyDNNnews module.

All templates using [EasyDNNnews:SocialButtons:AddThis] token will show buttons from the AddThis profile entered in the API Connection control.
You can also override the default sharing buttons in the template. You can create another profile on the AddThis website with different buttons and design, copy the AddThis profile ID and paste it into template token. So the token in the template will look like:
