    Hi,
    How can I do “fun social links” likes that : http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/mystique/
    (right up corner) ?

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

    Those social bookmarks are unique to the Mystique them. The other themes do not have that feature. So your answer is change your theme to Mystique.

    Or use a text widget with images that link to your profiles at Facebook, Twitter, etc. Not the same effect as Mystique but close enough.

    I have my own in an HTML table in a text widget but I’m guessing that’s not what the user wants. I’m thinking he wants the feature Mystique has which isn’t available on any other themes here. However, I could be wrong about that.

    On the subject of these fun social links, how do I make them open in a new tab / window rather than diverting readers from the main page?

    What do you mean please? On the Mystique theme the social networking links at the top of the blog are used by you to link to four popular social network profiles. Go to Theme Options and enter the data. I do not know if it will allow you to enter target=”_blank” so they open in new windows or not at the end of the URLs or not.

    Also note you can enable social networking icons to display on your posts following these instructions http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

    Thanks for your suggestion. That’s the desired effect but target=”_blank” does not work.

    Then I’m sorry but if the options page fields do not allow you to do this you will have to live with what the theme provides.
