TweetMeme's retweet button - not working, any ideas?

I'm trying to use TweetMeme's retweet button ( but for some reason it refuses to show up on any page. I put the<script> code directly into the ss files for blog summary and entry. I know the button code works, I've tried it on a page outside of my SilverStripe install and it shows up just fine.

There are no javascript errors, the link to the .js is definitely correct.. is there some kind of Javascript validation behind the scenes that's causing this javascript to not be processed correctly?

If anyone come across this issue or anything similar before, how did you solve it? Or any ideas at all would be very appreciated..

Still no solution..

After a bit more research I came across a few posts here that kind of related to my problem. I tried putting this line into the where I want the button to show up:

<% require javascript( %>

and added this to _config.php:


but no luck :(

This is the javascript error I get when I tried the above:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Operation is not supported" code: "9" nsresult: "0x80530009 (NS_ERROR_DOM_NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR)" location: " Line: 1"]

That's because document.write isn't supported with a script XHTML document. I would reccomend just changing your website to use a HTML doctype.
