Social Essentials - Social Stats and Sharing Buttons
[resolved] Twitter button "Tweet" text (3 posts)

    I've noticed that there is something in the code that adds the word "Tweet" in place of the Twitter button at first, but then the button is loaded and the word disappears.

    However, the "Tweet" word shows up as part of the content of the post so if you're doing things like using a custom excerpt, it would look like this....

    "TweetThis is the first line of content in the post"

    I made a filter to keep "Tweet" from showing up in custom excerpts. However, I also use Simple Facebook Connect, which auto-posts new content to my Facebook fan page and it also pulls the first line of the_content. Sadly, it includes the "Tweet" word in it.

    Is there a way that we can remove that from the code so it doesn't show up anywhere? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nevermind. I figured it out.

    Line 390 of the social-essentials.class.php file

    Just had to remove the "Tweet" from the hyperlink the code creates. That took care of the problem for me.

    Hey spencer, im using social essentials and simple facebook connect as well. One major problem that i'm having is trying to get them to work together.

    If I enable the social essentials like button, the sfc comments and publishing functions don't work.

    If I disable the like button, then the comments work, but still can't publish.

    If I enable the sfc like button, I can't align it to the right, plus it shows on top of every post on the homepage.

    It's been incredibly frustrating. All i really want is the sfc comments function (because it really fits in well with my theme) and an alignment of 'Like twitter google pinterest' buttons on top of my posts with a float right.

    Seems simple enough but just cant figure it out. If i could do it all manually i would. Ive tried so many plugins to try and make it happen but still can't find a solution.
