Plugin + Read The Rest Of This Entry Button

    When I use the <!–more–> tag, it presses away my Tweet, Like and +1 buttons at the bottom of the post. Can I force the buttons to stay in 1 line?

    For an example, visit http://fastforwardandrewind.com/ and look at the bottom of the ’15 Years Of Drum&BassArena’ post.

    What method are you using to insert the social icons?

    I am using the ‘Tweet & Like’ plugin.

    Yeah, I’m looking at the code now.. Weird, it uses an unordered list to show them.

    Okay, gimme a minute to play with it.

    Have you considered using the sharing option included within the theme? It allows you to include social sharing icons in the top or bottom of the post.

    I have actually though about that a few months back, but a plugin seemed simpler when I wanted it at the time 😉 Maybe this is a good moment to switch methods. Is it hard to get a Tweet, Google+1 and a Like button in there?

    Agreed 😉

    You can mess around with addthis.com or sharethis.com, or you can even build your own using HTML.

    Yeah, I’ve played around with yours, and it’s gonna be tough getting them to behave just right.

    AddThis looks promising! But would your site load faster if you added the HTML yourself?

    It’s possible it could be a measure of nano-seconds here. I use addthis on my site, and I don’t notice any lag whatsoever.

    Hmm, I’ve added this code:

    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style ">
    <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"></a>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-4eb1b0cc416e1e9b"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Button END -->

    To the ‘Social Sharing Buttons’ menu and I chose to show at the bottom of posts, but nothing is happening. I must be doing something wrong?

    Well, I hate to state the obvious, but do you have the “Show Social Sharing Button” checked?

    Ricardo

    #19313

    Yes! Just checked again (and otherwise the field for the code doesn’t appear).

    It’s showing them at the bottom of your posts:

    Look below your soundcloud.

    It’s showing fine for me as well:

    I am seeing them too now, I expected them to be in a different place, my bad.

    I would like to have then on the frond page (so without clicking on the post) aligned left above the tags.

    Update: made a new post about showing them on the front page here:
