I need to use this plugin without the widgets.
This may be an issue because whilst the 'Follow' widget works perfectly as soon as I try to use the follow_links() function in my theme instead everything seems to change and, no matter what I try, the 'Follow' tab insists on being included in the output.
In fact, as of this point, all I can get out of the follow_links() function is the 'Follow' tab, which doesn't seem to do anything (no individual follow icons are shown anywhere). The icons themselves never turn up when using this function.
As I say, all of this works and is easy when using the follow widget.
Is the plugin just broken or is it me?
