OK, scratch that. Here's the important bit in more detail.
I want the buttons on the Front Page but not in the individual posts, PLUS the Alert Box under the individual posts.
It seems however, that if I untick "Posts" under "Show/Hide Inline Buttons" on the "Socialize: Display Settings" page, the Alert Boxes disappear too.
I've tried leaving it checked, and unchecking the "Inline buttons" in the individual posts, but then the buttons disappear from the Front Page too.
I've checked them again now. Better to have too many buttons than no Alert Box. ;)
What do you think is the best way to get this sorted?
ps. Am I corrent in thinking that where the inline buttons displayed is set in the plugin options, globally, and not in the individual posts?
