dzone Widget

Description

This plugin will allow users to add a DZone vote widget to specific
posts in their Blog. Easy to setup and configure, and new to this version
is the ability to use the widget without changing your template.
Information on the DZone widget can be found
http://www.dzone.com/buttons.jsp.

Based on the Comment-Closed Plugin by

Global Configuration

You can change various settings globally on the “DZone” page under the
“Options” tab on the WordPress dashboard.

When to display DZone Widget? All posts, No posts, or specified posts. If specified need
to use the “Display DZone Widget” option on the post page.
How to dislay the dzone widget? Vertical or Horizontal?
Where do you want the widget displayed? Top, Bottom, or using the manual display function.

Post Configuration

Each post has “DZone” Section that allows you to configure if you want to show the dzone
widget.

“Display DZone Widget” – Display the dzone widget for this entry, “Check” to display

“Override URL prefix for this post” – This setting will provide a custom prefix to the
posts URL that will be used to load the DZone widget. If not set the url will be based
on the current URL.

I noticed over the course of time that I either didn’t use the same name or
the same url for the dzone entries. For many of my posts I left off the
“www”. This setting allows me to override the prefix for the post.
