  7. Is there an unbranded version of the plugin ?

    No there isn’t. Our plugin is 100% free and therefore the only thing we ask is our copyright in exchange for the plugin.

  8. Is it possible to provide a file via an URL that’s external to my WordPress site ?

    It is indeed possible. You can upload a file from your hard drive or just give the URL of your file’s location.

  9. What are the system requirements for the Tweet & Get it button to work properly ?

    -Wordpress 2.5 or higher. The plugin is also ready for wordpress 3.1 :)
    -PHP 5
    -SAFE mode on your server system has to be turned off

  10. I can’t upload my file, what now?

    Check if Safe Mode is OFF in your server configuration. If you can’t turn it off or if you don’t want to mess with it, you can create a tweetandgetit folder manually in your WordPress Uploads.
    http://myblog/wp-content/uploads/tweetandgetit
    The folder has to be created with 777 chmod permission. Now you should be able to create your Tweet&Get it buttons!

  11. Safe mode is OFF but I still can’t upload my files. What can I do ?

    Check if there’s a folder called Uploads in your WordPress blog. http://myblog/wp-content/uploads/
    If this folder doesn’t exist you have to give the wp-content folder 777 permission, so that the Tweet & Get it plugin can create the uploads folder it needs.
