  1. Мне хотелось бы отображать бейджик без градиента и окантовки – только значки и количество подписчиков. Но столкнулся с тем, что не могу изменить цвет шрифта бейджика. По умолчанию стоит белый ffffff, а хочется мне например черный 000000. Цвет градиента и окантовки спокойно меняется вплоть до белого под фон сайта, а цвет шрифта, какой-бы не выставить, не меняется – отображается белым. По этому на моем белом фоне сайта отображаются только значки без цифр и букв. Что можно сделать? Сайт – financeandwe.ru.

  2. Hi, love your plugin, but for some reason after upgrading it has dropped two icons (ttwitter-hint.png and feedburner-hint.png) at the bottom of my page in the footer. Can they be removed? Thanks again.

  5. I reinstalled 0.6.12 and my counters came back. When I applied both of the more recent updates, the counter does not appear. Is there a setting that I’m missing? I will not update again until this bug is fixed.

    • Библиотека PHP curl входит в стандартный пакет установки PHP и устанавливается по умолчанию, но некоторые провайдеры её почему-то отключают. Попросите провайдера включить библиотеку curl.

  19. Use Simple Counters plugin wisely. The main thing is not to the detriment of the blog, you ought to know that the installation of any plug-in increases the load on the site and increase website load time. If the plugin on your WordPress blog will be a lot – this will inevitably lead to a reduction in the speed of the site.
