Adding Digg, Reddit, Del.icio.us and whichever social bookmarking button you like to blogger posts seems to be difficult for many people. As you can see, I have today added these buttons.
For Digg, I used a piece of code floating around for a long time. It seems to be there on quite a few sites, so I don't really know whom to credit for it. Regardless, this is the code:
I replaced <p><data:post.body/></p> in the template with
<!-- DIGG -->
<div style='float:right; margin-left:10px;'>
digg_url = '<data:post.url/>';
And that easily, its done.
The smaller buttons I have added to each post (you can have Digg here too) what you have to do is:
- Find the buttons you would like to use, and upload them somewhere from where you can access them. You can use a site you have, or some free image hosting service.
- Note the links to the image files for each.
- Finally, create code like this for each service:
<a expr:href='"http://del.icio.us/post?url=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title' target='_blank' title='Add to Del.icio.us!'><img border='none' height='20' src='http://www.wide-aware.com/share/delicious.png' width='20'/></a>
<a expr:href='"http://reddit.com/submit?url=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title' target='_blank' title='Submit to Redit!'><img border='none' height='20' src='http://www.wide-aware.com/share/reddit.png' width='20'/></a>
These are the two examples I have given, but really, you can do this to submit to any service you would like to submit to. Some popular submit urls for the commonly known services are:
