Question :

Can I change how the Twitter link is displayed?

Answer :

If you would like to style the link to suit your blogs design, simply add the class twitlink to your stylesheet. For example, to make the text 14px in size and have a 1px black border around it you would add the following to your stylesheet.

a.twitlink { border: 1px solid black; font-size: 14px; }

Question :

How do I change what pages Twitter User adds a link to?

Answer :

In the Twitter User settings area you can choose whether the Twitter link is shown in any of the following 4 areas :

* Front Page
* Archives/Categories
* Single Post
* Static Page

Simply check the boxes of the sections you want the link to be displayed on.

Question : How do I change the text link to an image?

Answer : Twitter User allows you to use an image for your Twitter link instead of standard text. All you need to do is enter the full url of the image under the Display Image field in the Twitter User settings area. If you choose to do this the text in the Anchor Text will be used as the ALT text in the image link.
