Support for Topsy retweet button?

  1. Topsy came to my attention when it showed up in my spam queue. (Aside: I'm still undecided about whether I want to release the topsy 'comments' as whatever linkage currency they may provide, they are not directly valuable to my readers...) Anyhow: I would like to be able to add a topsy retweet button to my blog, to accompany my twitter button, but best as I can figure, I can't. You can do it on wordpress.org, I think, but not here. Or did I miss something?

    The blog I need help with is insightanalysis.wordpress.com.

  2. Hello there:
    We can't' use this code on wordpress.com blogs because it's a restricted code - javascript. Take a look at the code and support documentation you will see what I mean.
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.topsy.com/topsy.js?init=topsyWidgetCreator"></script>
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/
    Unless a shortcode is developed for Topsy retweets this is a no go.

  3. The Topsy documentation and the wordpress.org documentation didn't look promising, I must say...! Just wanted to double check. tx, H

  4. HI
    Is there anything similar to allow articles/posts to be retweeted directly from a wordpress.com blog?
    Thanks
    Jane

  5. I would suggest sending a request to feedback<aaat>topsy<dawwwt>com (pardon the lame obfuscation but I don't want cause spam). They are usually pretty good with such requests. Can't promise anything but it can't hurt to ask... especially if you're not the only one.

    Disclaimer: I used to work there.
