Retweet vs TweetMeme WordPress plugins

without comments

I decided earlier this week that I should add a Retweet plugin to my blog; so I googled “Retweet wordpress”, which gave me two good results the Retweet plugin and the TweetMeme plugin. I thought I would install and try both of them before I decided which one I should go for.

Retweet

I installed the Retweet plugin first, this had to be installed, I had to add a custom field to each post and I had to add some PHP code to one of the template files. Once this was done I had to style the link myself.

TweetMeme

The TweetMeme plugin however had to be installed and then it needed to be configured from a separate settings page. Once that was done it was added to all of my posts and it even showed how many retweets each post had.

Conclusion

When I need a plugin for wordpress I really do not want to do more than install it and do some configuration on a settings page. It is way to much hassle to modify template files and adding custom fields to the posts.

Guess which plugin I chose :P
