I have %sociable% in my Footer and it is showing up faded, with the icons only becoming bright when the mouse hovers over them.

I have tried removing the color and background of the Footer but the icons are still faded.

How can I keep the icons in the Footer (or alternatively, place at the bottom of the Body box) appear at their normal colors?

Thanks so much!!

That's supposed to be a feature, not a bug

At HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Insert, add

HTML Code:
.sociable-hovers {
    opacity: 1;
    -moz-opacity: 1;
    filter: alpha(opacity=100);

Hi Flynn ...

Thanks for your fast help! You are so awesome. :-)

I added the code you wrote to the CSS Insert section, but it didn't seem to fix it. The icons are still faded. Any ideas?

Uncheck "Use CSS" at the Sociable settings page (the settings page of the plugin). There are more tips like this to better align these plugins (Sociable, WP-Print, etc...) with the theme at Theme Options -> Page Info Items

Or, add !important to the CSS Insert

.sociable-hovers {
opacity: 1 !important;
-moz-opacity: 1 !important;
filter: alpha(opacity=100) !important;
