The new Twitter "Follow" button works on some of my posts but not all; help?

    As I began copying/pasting the HTML code into my oldest posts, about the third post it stopped working. In the past, I have often had glichy-problems editing my posts from the HTML tab. It would be easier/convenient if WordPress just made the Twitter-Follow tool easy to add to posts, pages, etc. rather than making us go into the HTML coding to do it; less errors and work for us!

  2. You can still use the Visual Editor when copying and pasting in any shortcodes (including the Twitter Follow button), so you don't have to switch to the HTML editor. :)

    Yes, as I read further I noticed you can go into other Twitter tools: Sharing, Publicizing, so I will experiment with these. Thank you! My apologies.

  4. No problem - I'm glad I was able to help you out a bit. :)

    Well, I've tried copying/pasting within the Visual Editor and still no success; nothing appears at all. I'm trying to put in a Twitter Follow button with # of followers on each post and page -- no luck. More help?

  6. Can you give me a direct link to a post where it isn't working?

    Yes, certainly: [link removed]

    I have now tried the coding at the bottom of the page in both the Visual Editor & the HTML Editor, neither with success.


  8. The problem was actually the @ you included with the screen name. The @ symbol is just part of Twitter's notification and reply system, not actually part of the screen name.
