@Chris, it could be an issue with how often you're polling their service. The changes I suggested should not have caused this.

@Chris, one solution would be to put the stacktack() function call inside the click event that expands the question. Be sure to use selectors in the click to target the specific question div, for example: $(this).find('.question').stacktack();

I've actually already posted a tutorial as an answer here that explains the steps needed to accomplish this. It explains how to edit the theme HTML as well as how to post a Tack in a text post on Tumblr.

I forgot to mention, S3 will take about a day to propagate so you may not see it working until tomorrow. My mistake.

@garbagecollector, Tumblr sanitized html IDs from any html I tried to put in a text post, so I updated the plugin to allow class-based IDs as well. See it in action here: zamtools.tumblr.com/post/1463290085/stacktack

@garbagecollector, I'm planning a 1.1 release soon which will allow for complete API urls. Currently the plugin makes too many assumptions about how the api path will be named.

I'm not very familiar with Wordpress plugins, but this tutorial digwp.com/2009/06/including-jquery-in-wordpress-the-right-way shows how to import jquery and run a script, so it should be theoretically possible to do at a low level. I'll look into it.

Haha, this is uncanny! I practically had the same idea, but in a Jeopardy format, and half-implemented it on App Engine before I switched jobs and ran out of time. Way to go!!!
