I've installed the tweet and like button plugin by Kurt Polinar - http://kurtpolinar.com
After tweeking the CSS i have the buttons displying fine at the top of my posts, but I want them to appear in the meta when extracts of my posts are published on the index/home page.
The plug offers up a short code
[tweetandlike_buttons] and says "You can copy this shortcode and place it anywhere on your site, you can also put it in widgets."
I've added this to the meta section, but it's not displaying the buttons, instead its just showing the shortcode as text.
