A super-fast post here, for those of you who are geeky, blogs/sites, but don’t know too much about html/javascript. I’m writing this as even if the problem is trivial, I googled a bit and couldn’t find any “copy’n’paste” kind of solution, so here you are.

The problem:  the tweetmeme and facebook share horizontal buttons are disaligned

“This kinda sucks” you’d think “since they’re the 2 most populare sharing button, why didn’t they make an effort to make them aligned by default?”. Good question. But still, wait to see what the “Google buzz” button looks like! :-O

Anyway, before finding this solution I created a table around the 2 buttons,  tried using  inline CSS (vertical-align and margin) to get them aligned and none worked. What did work was usign a div tag, just copy’n’paste the following code into your webpage and it should work fine:

<div style=�float: left; margin-left: 0px; padding: 6px 0px 0pt;�>
<script type=â?text/javascriptâ?> tweetmeme_style = â??compactâ??;</script> <script type=â?text/javascriptâ? src=â?http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.jsâ?> </script>
<div style=�float: left; margin-right: 12px; padding: 4px 10px 0pt;�>
<a name=�fb_share� type=�button_count� href=�http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php�>Share</a><script src=�http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share� type=�text/javascript�></script>

You can see the result on our forum.

Notes: always get the latest scripts from tweetmeme and facebook. As the buttons change, you may need to play around with the values a bit…

Edit: on this blog we’re currently using the amazing Digg Digg plugin and the wibiya toolbar (we’re still using the 2 buttons on our forum).
