    Love it! Thank you for such a much needed Thesis box. I’m adding it to my list tomorrow.

    The twitter handle functionality is killer, too.

    I would love to see Google Plus and LinkedIn. Also, the ability to choose sizes (large button vs medium button). I would pay for it and I’m sure there would be others that would see the value as well.

    Thanks again.

      Hi Reese. Thank you for your comment. I actually came very close to including Linkedin (which will definitely feature in future releases) with this one but just decided to ship it with twitter and facebook initially and gauge reaction.

      DIY Themes are also set to issue a Social Media Box in the near future – I’m waiting to see what’s on offer with theirs before deciding on which direction to take this box in (it will continue, I just don’t see the point in offering the same! :) )

      Thanks again,

    I am currently testing your box, its really nice.
    Is it possible that you add the possibilty to give it a css class so you can reposition the box?
    Kind regards

      Hi Rene

      Thank you for your comment. Yes the next version of this box will accomodate custom IDs and Classes and will come with it own CSS Package allowing a variety of options. I’m starting to write it this week and will likely take about a fortnight at least (it’s gonna be packed to the brim with awesomness!! :)
