Current Version: 2.5.4
The module ValAddThis is compatible with both Joomla! versions 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 as well as 2.5+, and it uses the Bookmarking services of AddThis.com. For a complete list of the AddThis features take a look at this page. The module ValAddThis allows the easy configuration as well the display of the AddThis Button or AddThis Toolbox. It produces valid markup for XHTML as well as for CSS 2.1. ValAddThis is free software, which has been released under the GNU/GPL v2.0 license.
This version of the module supports the latest AddThis
Menu Client API 2.0, in combination with the old API 1.0 (which is still used to display an RSS-Feed button). With ValAddThis you're also able to display the new AddThis Toolbox as well as several other special buttons (such as: LinkedIn and Stumbleupon counters), which aren't supported officially by AddThis yet; for more details on the various configuration options read on. New features in this latest version of ValAddThis module will be marked with this icon:
All the documentation screenshots were taken in Joomla! 1.5, but they won't look much different in newer versions of Joomla.

- Click on "Upload file & Install".
Now the module "ValAddThis" is installed in Joomla and you can begin using it.
