    Well, both exciting and daunting! Love that Twitter now has their own re-tweet button, and it looks seamless. But, it’s daunting to know I’ll need to change all six blogs over! :( Thanks for the great post though Jeff!

    Thanks Jeff like Melody it will be daunting to change all my buttons.. But what I will do is implement then from now on..

    Hopefully this styatement is true…”It appears from Twitters blog that TweetMeme has done a deal with Twitter with their button now pointed at the “Official” Twitter service” That would certainly be the smart thing to do for all concerned.. RICH :0)

    My RT button is broken. I have to get someone to fix it. I don’t know what the problem is but the error message is php related… I wished I was more tech savvy…. thanks for pointing this out, Jeff!

    Thanks for the great info, Jeff!

    One question I hope you might have the answer to, though. I added the button fine, but the tweet count shown on each post while on the homepage is DIFFERENT than if you go to the post page directly. For example, my most recent post shows 6 tweets when you look at it on the homepage. BUT, if you go to the page that just has the post, it shows 17 tweets.

    Any idea why that is? Or how to sync up everything so it’s consistent?

    Hi, Jeff – I enjoyed this post and was inspired to write an “installation guide” for WordPress users who might need a bit more detailed help to install the official Twitter Button. It can be found at http://outcomemarketing.com/wordpress-tips/add-tweet-button-wordpress. I hope it will help the commenters who are struggling with installing the button. There’s also a WordPress Plugin that installs the button, although it doesn’t give much flexibility about button appearance and flexibility. I mentioned where to find that that in my post as well.
