Here’s how to add a Tweetmeme button to your blog posts. w/o plugins or long cod
I would just like to share this knowledge with anyone who isn’t aware.
It seems that not many people are aware of this, but WP.com has implemented the Tweetmeme code onto their site. So to use it, all you need to do is use this shortcode:
*if would like to specify you twitter name, include this: source=”your_twitter_name” (Keep the quotes)
In that case, it should look like this: [tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name” http://www.URL.com%5D
*If you would like for the button to appear on the home page and not not only the single post view, the add this: only_single=false
Altogether, it looks like this: [tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D
Hope this helps someone!
The blog I need help with is freshcookiezblog.wordpress.com.
thanks, I have you on my blog surfer and I saw the code and it works great.
Just a note, I dont think you have to include the post link. When I tried it all I did was the [tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name”] and the post link automatically was added.
hope u get what I mean
Thanks! I didn’t know about this new feature!
very useful, thanks a lot…
@ lolavibe oh wow really? haha thanks for telling me that. I wasn’t aware of that. saves me some time.
and to everyone else you’re very welcome! I’m glad u found it helpful!
Thanks I bookmarked this thread for future reference.
I seem to be missing something. Where would I put this code?
I don’t get it either. I’m back on WordPress after several-year hiatus. My blog is hosted on WordPress. This sounds like it would still work even if I don’t host my own blog. But I tried entering the HTML into one of my posts and it’s not working …
Ah, never mind — I got it to work! writeronboard, you have to leave the brackets ON. I tried to insert the code without the brackets. So freshcookiezblog is correct, it’s like this: [tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name” http://www.URL.com%5D. I inserted the HTML near the end of my post, and the retweet is also at the end …
You can post the entire complete code on the forum between backticks. The backtick is found on the same key as the ~ only in lower case. The way to do it is like this
post the code
Don’t laugh, but I know nothing about code. Where exactly do I paste the code on the CSS?
You don’t. You put it in your post.
Thank you so much for posting this – and for all the follow ups – that helped a novice like me use such a great little tool
When I used that code my twitter name did not appeared. Then I used this one and that works perfectly for all of our needs.
[tweetmeme source= ‘yourtwittername’ only_single=false]
That code creates a link of the page automatically and you can see your twiiter name on that retweet also with this code your retweet button will appear at your home page and the page of the post.
cpekyorur: make sure u include the quotation marks. so it should be
[tweetmeme source= "yourtwittername" only_single=false]*with the quotes include*
oops it should be like this:
‘[tweetmeme source=”yourtwittername” only_single=false]’
wow, it works! thx.
but i am wondering, can i erase the with background there? cause i use black in my background color.. thx.
can somebody explain to me why there is writen “Tweeted” instead of “Retweet”? because the button can only used once..
im sorry i forgot the link, here it is http://farhanvsgnk.wordpress.com/2009/10/18/anak-krakatau/
