I have a free version of the WordPress blog and I've tried adding a retweet button while editing the post in HTML, but it doesn't seem to appear.

Any tips?

  • what do you mean the free version ? wordpress.org or wordpress.com ? Only wordpress.com topics are allowed here. Try webmasters.stackexchange.com instead – phwd Jul 21 '10 at 12:45

Try the TweetMeme plugin. Or any kind of social buttons plugin (e.g.: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fixed-social-buttons/)

  • it says I have to upload the plugin to the wp-plugins directory. Do I have to ftp to my site and dump the plugin there? I am only using the free online version of wordpress. – Seth Jul 22 '10 at 3:20
  • If your blog is hosted at wordpress.com (e.g.: myblog.wordpress.com), then see here: onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/02/06/… . If you host it yourself (e.g.: myblog.com), then yes, you have to download the plugin, upload it to the wp-plugins directory using FTP and then activate it from the admin panel. – Alex Jul 22 '10 at 6:57
  • Moreover, if your blog is hosted at wordpress.com and you want more than just twitter, see here: onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/04/08/… – Alex Jul 22 '10 at 6:57
