    Excellent tutorial, thank you. I do have one question…I did this but when you click on the links, it does not open a new window to go to those social sites. How can I make it so it opens a new window (like yours) ?

      The code mentioned in the above post each link add target=”_blank” for opening the link in new window

  • Tobi Rhayne August 7, 2010, 10:22 PM

    Great tutorial, thank you.

    My question is say I only want 3 icons. I figures out the align=center thing but was wondering how to adjust the spacing between the icons.

    I’m not a coder but I can cut and paste 🙂

    Any ideas?

    Hi, Thanks for the tutorial.
    It works as described, but I have a problem. I want rss feed icon and “twitter follow button” in one line horizontally. If I use any button image and code for twitter, it stays where it should. But if I use original button code from twitter(which I prefer) it aligns to the next line. How can I change this?
