I am using Feedburner for my feeds and I am also using Sharedaddy from Jetpack to display the sharing icons. I'd like to disable these buttons in the feed, how can I do this? Thanks

What have your tried already? How are the icons added to the feed? – toscho May 12 '12 at 5:44
There is no option to disable or enable display in feeds, so I'm just running on default to display the sharing icons on posts. – drtanz May 12 '12 at 16:53
How are the icons added programmatically? – toscho May 13 '12 at 12:23
I think Feedburner just reproduces the posts, as in feeds.feedburner.com/WordPressBlogsites, how do you take off the sharing icons? – drtanz May 16 '12 at 15:26
I think Feedburner is using the feed output, not the regular blog post. So somewhere Sharedaddy adds these icons on the hooks 'the_content_feed' or 'the_content'. Find that code and add it to your question. – toscho May 16 '12 at 15:29

The icons are added to the feed per filter in modules/sharedaddy/sharing-service.php:

add_filter( 'the_content', 'sharing_display', 19 );

sharing_display() does check for is_feed(), so there shouldn't be a problem … seems to fail for no obvious reason.

You could add another check; something like this:

add_action( 'init', 'disable_sharedaddy_in_feed' );

function disable_sharedaddy_in_feed()
    is_feed() and add_filter( 'sharing_show', '__return_false' );

Toscho with his beautiful minimal code. – Brady May 16 '12 at 15:55
thanks im adding it let's see if it does the trick. – drtanz May 16 '12 at 16:01
till now it still displays them, not sure if it takes time for feedburner to show changes. – drtanz May 16 '12 at 16:03
@drtanz Feedburner has a force refresh button somewhere. I don't use it, so you have to find it on your own. :) – toscho May 16 '12 at 17:22
even after resyncing it still works the same, maybe there is something wrong with the theme :S – drtanz May 18 '12 at 8:46
