More Info, Credits & Links
- When a post is displayed with the Tweetmeme retweet badge included the whole thing is cached by b2evolution to make displaying the post faster in the future. Therefore if you want to change the location of the retweet badge using the above settings you will need to clear the cache before the changes will be reflected in your posts. You can do this by going to the Tools -> Misc tab and clicking on the link called 'Delete pre-renderered item cache'.
- If your Tweetmeme retweet badge is not looking or working like you expect then please head over to the Tweetmeme FAQ page. This will answer a few of the comon questions like why you are seeing a ? in your retweet badge and why the retweet badge is white and not green. If you can't find an answer there then head over to the plugin homepage and post a question to the blog and I will try to answer it the best I can.
- The position of the Tweetmeme retweet badge is controlled by its own custom css file that ships with the plugin. This css file can be found in the folder /plugins/tweetmeme_plugin/css/tweetmeme.css and can be edited to further tweak the position of the badge in your specific skin. The whole badge is wrapped in a div with a class called tweetmeme_plugin and the left and right possitions are controlled with classes called tweetmeme_left and tweetmeme_right.
