If you were thinking that you don't really need this little Tweet button I promise you that you will be so glad you installed it - even if people don't use it. It literally takes two clicks to Tweet about whatever post it is your on, that's it, TWO CLICKS! I sent out a Tweet message about all of my giveaways in like three minutes! I couldn't believe it. You don't even have to type anything, just click the Tweet button, the message is already there waiting for you, click again to send. You're gonna save so much time with this button. I'm actually sending out so, so, so many more Tweets on my post now cause it's so quick and too simple.
Sooo, I'm guessing that you are super ready for some simple, 'Manda-style instructions - yes? You are in for such a treat because this one is madd easy! There are special instructions to go along with this if you are using a Blogger classic template, these special instructions are marked with a *
First, you need to go into your layout on your dashboard and go to edit html. Check the little box to expand widgets template.
You need to find a piece a code that looks like this: <div class='post-header-line-1'/>
(Mine was located about the middle of the page but all codes are gonna be different)
*If you are using a Blogger classic template you need to locate this piece of code: <$BlogItemBody$> You also need to change the retweet button code that I've given you below a little bit.
Change this: <data:post.url/> to this: <$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$> in the code below. After you change that piece in the retweet button code, place the retweet button code above this piece of code in your template: <$BlogItemBody$> That's it, you're all done and your classic blogger template is updated with a sweet retweet button.
Here is the code that you will need to insert at the the end of that line of code you just found. See where it says 'PUT YOUR TWITTER USER NAME HERE', you guessed it, you have to put your twitter user name there. Make sure you leave the apostrophe before and after your Twitter user name. Here's an example using my Twitter name: 'raleighexaminer'
Retweet Button Code:
tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';
tweetmeme_source = 'PUT YOUR TWITTER USER NAME HERE';
That's it! Save your template and you now have an awesomely quick and easy way to Tweet all of your post.
If you've looked it over and over and over again and you just can't find that piece of code then find the very first time that this code is used: <data:post.body/> It has to be the FIRST occurence of the code. Place the retweet button code directly in FRONT of that piece of code. That's it, you're done!
