I created custom wordpress theme. In that theme I am using the_excerpt method for showing the post on some pages.
I installed the tweetmeme and facebook-share-new plugins and activated on wordpress site.
I saw one issue with these plugins. These plugins are showing on only single pages or posts.

Facebook and twitter button are not showing when I am using the the_excerpt() function.

I tried google but I did not got any suaitable answer. Everybody is saying about do mannual work when we creating the post.
