Following step 5 of the Installation instructions, you simply copy the HTML comment code and past it into the HTML of the post/page’s content. The code looks like the following:



If you are upgrading from version 1.0, you will see an option on the Code Library page that will

    I think its great, thank you. It is causing some validation issues though, I am not sure if you can work around this, or if it is my issue.
    I am using WordPress v3.04 and the tags are being wrapped with tags.

    Used to use it – but causes admin login redirects on WP 3.1.3 (ie breaks admin.)

    @Simon – This blog is running 3.1.3 and it seems to function just fine. Can you give me your URL and a list of other plugins running?

    Hi Allan, just tried a bunch of plugins and your’s was by far the best. I did discover a plugin conflict with 1-click Retweet/Share/Like. Personally your plugin was far more valuable so I deactivated 1-Click.

    Here’s the error:
    Warning: simplexml_import_dom() [function.simplexml-import-dom]: Invalid Nodetype to import in /home/username/public_html/wp-content/plugins/1-click-retweetsharelike/la-click-and-share-fb-meta.php on line 86

    Fatal error: Call to a member function xpath() on a non-object in /home/username/public_html/wp-content/plugins/1-click-retweetsharelike/la-click-and-share-fb-meta.php on line 87
