In this folder open the user control PostView.ascx and then go to the bookmarks DIV. Comment out the rel=”nofollow” tag and replace it with the code generated by AddThisas shown below:

<!– AddThis Button BEGIN JH DEC 2010
        <div class=”addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style “>
        <a href=”;username=xa-4cf6b59760c9be73″ class=”addthis_button_compact”>Share</a>
        <span class=”addthis_separator”>|</span>
        <a class=”addthis_button_preferred_1″></a>
        <a class=”addthis_button_preferred_2″></a>
        <a class=”addthis_button_preferred_3″></a>
        <a class=”addthis_button_preferred_4″></a>
        <script type=”text/javascript” src=”″></script>
