Many thanks for the 5 star rating!!
I have been thinking about the counters idea! I don't want to rely on the individual social sites to load the data, as this would slow things down. My thoughts are to use the WordPress DB already being used to store the numbers after each click, under fields such as ssba_facebook_count
Of course this would mean that people could manipulate the data by clicking it themselves over and over, but I'm also thinking it would allow me to create a simple tracking screen in the admin panel.
The idea to reorder services is another good one, I shall try and get that in place too when I have the time.
