So I’ve spent ages today setting up ‘Social Media’ buttons on another site.
It’s a task that should be relatively straightforward, but as with all things technical, it never is. First of all there’s the integration with Tumblr, which is fine in itself, but then specific buttons from Facebook won’t work with certain API calls and…
Anyway, as a result, even though I myself am not on
that evil site Facebook, I’ve applied a button to ‘Like’ away to your hearts’ content if you are that way inclined.
There’s also a more respectable Twitter button beside it. It gave me no hassle, for the record.
If anyone wants to know how to integrate the new buttons without having to deal with Facebook’s ridiculous shifting-width image, give me a shout and I can explain what I had to do.
