    I really like where the Tweet button is located on the Habitat theme, but when ever installing any modules such as facebook Like or the new Google +1 button generally they are in the post at the top or bottom.

    How and where can I insert the above functions onto the side tab of the blogs? (I don’t mind adding manual code)

    Any help would be fantastic!



    you can try plugins like:


    I know there are plenty of social plugins we can install, but we want them to appear under the Tweet button on the tab which is part of the Habitat template.


    Implementing social services can be a pain and time intensive so I can only give a hint – in single.php and in index.php you’ll find following code line:

    <span class='date_container_bottom'></span>

    Add your code before it.


    I am trying to do the same thing as doodull. I went to the link that you provided and downloaded the plug-in. I also activated the plug-in, but i am unsure what code goes in the section listed above.

    I was also wondering if you know of some kind of tumbler share plug-in – one like facebook!

    thank you and hope you are having a wonderful day!


    I used to have the Facebook and Buffer buttons in my date box (I’ve since removed them) – it’s actually pretty easy to implement. You just need to add code to mainpage, single, category, and page.php. Look for this code in each file:

    <div class="date_container">
    <span class='day'><?php the_time('d') ?></span>
    <span class='month'><?php the_time('M') ?></span>
    <span class='year'><?php the_time('Y') ?></span>
    <?php if($k_option['single']['acc_tw'] != '') { ?>
    <div class="tweetmeme">
    <!-- <script type="text/javascript">
    tweetmeme_source = '<?php echo $k_option['single']['acc_tw']; ?>';
    tweetmeme_url = '<?php echo get_permalink() ?>';
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script> -->

    <a href="">" data-url="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" data-count="vertical" data-via="CollegeInfoGeek" data-related="thomasfrank09:Blog founder!">Tweet</a><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    <?php } ?>

    <span class='date_container_bottom'></span>
    </div><!-- end date -->

    In that code, you can see that I’ve disabled TweetMeme and implemented the regular Twitter button (this is because TweetMeme is TERRIBLE at keeping accurate tweet counts). Just add the code for a like button or a +1 button there.
