what I was asking was is it possible to actually put the facebook share/tweet buttons in the rotating image in the header?

I'm stuck for space on the website, I have a 250px sidebar and is full with content, and I want to simply add tweet and like buttons on there without shifting my ads/opt in lists lower. The header seems like a prime real estate space on the site, which makes me now think that I should either reduce it down to 75px height to make space, or even better put a tweet button as an overlay in the header.

Is it possible? I know that you can use place images and links, but these tweet/like buttons use javascript and i don't think you can do that with JS

You could put a new widget area in place of %image and put anything you want there.

you can also use the new 'Header Image Overlay' option (ato->Header Image)

wow, that worked brilliantly and so easily as well. I knew that it was possible to place images and links, but didn't even consider that it woud be possible to place script and iframe tags in there as well. Took the like/tweet buttons straight from their respective source, and used the codes almost as is with the exception of <div style="[absolute positioning]">[original code]</div> and voila looks pretty damn good.

Somehow doubt this will be compatible with IE6,IE7,FF3,FF3.5 and other browsers from that era, will get into vmware and do a run to see what it's like in some hours/days time

I've tested this out with some legacy browsers

IE6, FF3, Cr5, Sa3.1
IE7, FF3.5, Cr8, Sa4

All of them display perfectly fine [IE6 displays the facebook like button a bit weird, but that's more of a FB issue], great job BFA!
