  1. great post dude…. the problem now is … how can i locate the HEAD section for my blog…. quick reply is indeed needed….. i want my blog to have something special… so i will be going for the 3rd code

    • You don’t need to add any code to the header section of your blog for the third code to work, just copy and add it to any text or html widget it’s as easy as that brov

      • thanks…. let me try that right away

  2. tnx for sharing boss wld check it out

  3. am trying to implement the social buttons(share this and add this) but it not working.
    i need proper guidance.

    • Can you be a bit specific with the problems you are currently facing with it ?

  4. Not sure if there’s been a change in Twitter’s API, but it looks like the floating Twitter fan page is blank. Whether left at default, or changed to my ID, it just opens a plain light blue banner. Think it will be easy to correct?

    • sure thing Scott,

      Do let me know, if you need more help with it

        • I’ll take a look at the link provided Scott, test the code and see how I can help with this.

          Thanks for notifying us about the API changes

      • Yes, it looks like I still need help. Facebook, Google, and Feedburner banners are working fine…Twitter banner is still blank.

  5. Hi Everyone, I have just incorporated option 3 into my website. TBH i used the godaddy website builder to create the website, but the code is largely working. one issue and one question. Like a few others, the twitter information is not showing the page is generally blank.
    On the facebook banner, is it possible to show the feed also? many thanks
