addthis.update is not a function

03 Jan 2020, 05:14

Hi,

On some occasions I am getting the following error when entering a page with gallery view enabled. I am not using the addthis account at all. Once the error is thrown, the page is not rendered and stays blank (only icon shown). All pages accessed from now are blank as well. Only a forced reload shows the content again. I was only able to reproduce this behaviour in Google Chrome. Opera, Firefox and Safari do not show that behavior.

I can clear the browser cache and the error disappears, but comes back after several visits.

Does anybody has an idea what is causing it?

Is there a way to completely disable the addthis code?

Thanks!

In your Settings > Accounts > AddThis, you have "ra-5debd13bc8473550". Also in Settings > Toolbar, you have enabled AddThis. It's not clear to me why you have enabled it, if you want it disabled. I strongly recommend against using AddThis ... It's bloatware, includes ads, probably tracking, and the javascript is almost 400kb (crazy).

  • Share button is disabled

I have disabled all plugins (removed Google Analytics, Facebook, EU cookie consent) and I still get trackers. Do you have any idea where it comes from?

DoubleClick comes from YouTube as I have embedded videos on my site. I am now using https://www.youtube-nocookie.com domain to disable DoubleClick. 

However, addThis remains available. If not blocked, it loads Moat.

Ok, found the issue. Disabling the toolbar seems not to inherit the setting to all other subsettings. AddThis was still set to true and this caused the injection of the tracker. After re-enabling the toolbar, disabling Addthis and disabling again got the tracker removed :-).
