  • Check the stuff from this thread:

    Plugins that will add those links automagically for you.

    Not looking for plug-ins… just want to know how to add them with simple code.

    then wouldn’t you want to be at and del.ikki going through their help areas?

    I figured it was a simple insertion of code… if I’m wrong then I apologize

    Idle curiosity: why are you not wanting to use plugins? The whole point to the sterility (relatively-speaking) of wp core code is that the functionality can be expanded upon using plugins.

    Hi all

    I’m the webmaster of (linked above). Log analysis is good for you 🙂

    Anyway: I agree that it is better to use plugins with WP. Actually, based on the code on the page linked above, I created a service called the Socializer ( ) which with one link creates links to 40 or so social bookmarking services.

    There is a plugin for the Socializer too: . I use it on all my blogs and it works a treat. I recommend you use that instead of wasting space on dozens of links.


    Here is the code — put it in the Loop.

    <a href="<?php urlencode(the_permalink()); ?>&title=<?php urlencode(the_title()); ?>&bodytext=<?php urlencode(the_excerpt()); ?>&topic=movies">Digg&nbsp;this</a>

    See it in action at Cinema Minima News for Movie Makers.

    Uh, my post disappeared!.

    Here is the code — put it in the loop.

    <a href="<?php urlencode(the_permalink()); ?>&title=<?php urlencode(the_title()); ?>&bodytext=<?php urlencode(the_excerpt()); ?>&topic=movies">Digg&nbsp;this</a>

    thanks cinemaminima — this was useful to me 🙂 i didn’t want to add a plugin when i could just code it into the template

    and to those wondering why, i thought it would save a query or two — but perhaps i’m wrong about that?

    “Idle curiosity: why are you not wanting to use plugins?”

    ->Another reason is because you can be using wp as cms and the social icon appears everywhere.

    I activated Alex King share-this and the social icon appeared everywhere; two times in my custom homepage, in every static page and in general, everywhere where I had the loop.

    I watched the plugin code and finally I thought; damm it, I put links where I want in the template and I finish in a couple of minutes.
