Howdy! As you may have noticed I’ve installed a Tweetmeme button in the Share section of each post. Basically, it’s just a retweet counter which lets you promote the current post via a retweet on Twitter. More info about Tweetmeme and how it works can be found on their website and the official Tweetmeme WordPress plugin page is here.
Anyways, I found it a little bit nasty having only three options for display in the Tweetmeme configuration (display button before post, after post, before and after post) – that kinda freaked me out cause I couldnt place the button right next to my Sociable share buttons, so I’ve jumped into the plugin code and added a fourth option – Manual. You can now place the Tweetmeme button in any div/span/p/em/.. you like (from within the loop of course).
Interested? Download my version of Tweetmeme for WordPress. The installation process is the same. Then go to plugin settings and pick the manual display mode. Use it in your theme within the loop like this:
if (function_exists('tweetmeme')) echo tweetmeme();
UPD 6.05.2009: It seems that this update was included in the most recent update of the plugin. Thanks so much, Tweetmeme! Lovin’ your service! Keep up the good work.
