thank you for the feedback.
Yes really have to edit the plugin to change the position - it is Aligned to the left like the share buttons on the blog you linked to. Editing the plugin code is not something we'd recommend (any plugin) because your edits get over-written each time you update the plugin.
Positioning the Page views Count gadget is not something we'd ever thought about doing but is pretty easy feature to add - We built this plugin over 12 months ago and have it installed on over 60 client sites and all are Aligned to the left. see it here on the a3 rev blog page
Like to know what other users think about adding the ability to auto align the gadget - if we added that the dashboard options would be
Align [ ]left , [ ] center, [ ] right.
Happy to hear all feedback on this feature or any other users would like to see added to this plugin.
