  1. Hello!

    I just installed this plugin and am loving it. I’m sorry for asking this here (I can’t find anywhere else to post a question).

    Is it possible to change the text in the box? I wanted to modify the text as it doesn’t quite fit with the name of my site.

    Thanks so much for your time!

    • Kyle, specify please, you wish to change the text of hints or the panel?

      • thank you for the quick response. I think it’s the hint: “Share and discover what is happening right now at the Teach English Abroad in Korea! Follow me on Twitter.”

        If I can change them to something whimsical and custom that would be great. If I can’t, at a minimum, I’m looking to take out the ‘the’ in that sentence.

        Thanks again,

  2. Um, the update doesn’t work. This morning, badge. After update, no badge.
    And there’s no way to get the old version back.

                • Same here.
                  Badge disappeared (thanks for the link to the old)
                  Updated “automatically” via WP plugins page.
                  WP v2.91
                  PHP v5.x

                  Just reinstalled previous version and it worked instantly.
                  Thanks for this plugin though! Love it.

                  • hello. I found the problem!
                    I installed version 0.3.8
                    via FTP and I gradually rewrote components from version 0.2.4 and after typing each component update page.
                    In the js folder to overwrite Badge display 🙂
                    Error is probably in the directory “js”.
                    Thank you everyone for trying to help.
                    And thanks for a great plugin.

                    I hope you understand me my bad English.

  6. I just downloaded your sidebar widget for feeds and tweets, and I’m looking forward to it improving my site.
    Thank you for creating it.

    I’d also like to ask about the Twitter box on each of your posts. I’d like to incorporate that into my website as well. Where did you find it.

    I appreciate your help and guidance.

  8. Здравствуйте, minimus, надеюсь, не оставите без подскази русскоязычного посетителя? а то лично мне представляется странным обращаться к собрату из Беларуси на инглише.

    Моя проблема – при попытке сохранить настройки в панели управления плагином, меня редиректит на страницу общих настроек блога (general settings). фактически сохранения настроек не происходит. загружал через тотал коммандер, версия php 4, атрибуты папки плагина 750. не пойму я, в чем проблема. подскажите, если есть идеи. спасибо!

    • Здравствуйте, Goodwin! Честно говоря, первый раз встречаю такой баг (с этим плагином) … Если можете (если не localhost), дайте URL блога, на котором это происходит. Был у меня похожий баг, но с чужим плагином, редирект, правда, был в никуда. В итоге, обычное дело – конфликт плагинов. Обычно конфликт происходит между плагинами JS написанными в стиле 2.6- и плагинами написанными в стиле 2.7+. Я думаю, у Вас что-то в этом духе.

      Кстати, для русскоязычных пользователей, эта статья находится здесь. 😉

  12. Hi,

    Nice plugin. I installed on my site and it does not show up properly on IE.
    It works great on Chrome and Firefox.

    Appreciate your comment 🙂

  13. Before I am so rude as to complain and ask for help, I want to tell you that this is an awesome plugin. And it looks perfect on your site. But on my site there is too much space between the text. Specifically the counts (numbers) and the words (readers & followers). It almost looks as if someone added extra padding.

    My site is //blogswithwings.com

    Is there something I can do to correct the spacing so there isn’t a big gap between the numbers and the text? I want the spacing to look like yours does.

  14. Hi,
    I just installed this plugin, but I get this error for the feedburner counter:
    Error Code: g
    Can you tell me what that means?
    I’ve also tried the “Redirect data request to client side” option.
    Still doesn’t work.
    Total Comment by CMentality: 1

    • This means that when you request data from the FeedBurner error occurred. Most likely, your ISP has closed access to the server FeedBurner. Enabling the “Redirect data request to client side” option allow receive data from the server FeedBurner using JavaScript on the client side. You can to test plugin client side mode – just load your blog in any browser.

    • А поподробнее можно?

      • На двух компьютерах проверил, один  и тот же эффект: при наведении курсора ничего не выплывает, курсор принимает вид как для ссылки только для текстовой подписи feedburner, при нажатии куда угодно ничего не происходит
