Sharethis Buttons for Dynamic Pages (Page 2, 3, 4 etc.)

Issue

I am using this Social Sharing tool called “Sharethis”.
I gives you some header J.S. links to add to your HTML header.

Then, you’ll need to add some SPAN in your code to add the social buttons, like this:

<span class='st_fblike_hcount' displayText='Facebook Like'></span>

Then, on load, you’ll see your buttons to click on and get some social activity feedback.
Look at my page, if you have no idea how it looks like: http://www.seoroger.com/seo_quotes_archive.php

Problem is, I make dynamic pages like: /seo_quotes_archive.php?page=2, page=3, etc.
And this widget considers each of these pages a separate one (which is true somehow), and keeps each page’s statistics separately.

I think the right thing to do for this instance, is to have one account for all of these pages and if the user clicks on facebook button on /seo_quotes_archive.php?page=5, for example, it increments the general facebook count.

If you agree, and you know how this is feasible, please help!
Thanks in advance!

PS. This case is the opposite of Multiple Sharethis buttons per page. In Fact, it’s looking for a way to have one Sharethis statistics for Multiple pages.

Solution

You can add a “st_url” Parameter to specify the shared url. Insert the current url without the page-parameter to share the same url across multiple pages.

<span class='st_fblike_hcount' st_url='http://www.example.com/seo_quotes_archive.php' displayText='Facebook Like'></span>
