  7. Ajay,

    Thanks for such a sweet plugin. I’ve been looking to integrate some of my blogs with twitter, and this proved to be helpful in my pursuit. If we wanted to get this in our WP header, would we still have to tweak the sidebar.php file in addition to the header.php one?

  8. Ajay,

    I think he wants his twitter plugin at the top of his wordpress theme, which probably has a header.php file. I would assume it would work but it may not look great with css formatting and all. Either way, excellent plugin recommendation, thanks for posting it.

  9. Very nice plug-in. There are some other Twitter based WP plug-ins out there, but this is the first one I’ve seen that shows the badges. Well done.

  12. Thanks for the cool plug in! I use a different plug in currently for Twitter, but I’m going to switch over to this to show the number of followers (now that I have over 350).

  16. @Ajay, yes, I were call the generated .po file as ?twittercounter-zh_TW.po? instead of ?zh_TW.po?.

    But, that still isn’t work,so I give up that, just use defaut file, that’s it.

    And still say thank you for your plugins!
