  • V 0.25 released, now produces XHTML valid code thanks to contributions from the web. Let me know if you use it!

    V 0.31 released. Now with improved URL formatting and newsvine support. It also slices and dices and can cut through a tin can, a running shoe, and a tomato.*

    *Low truthiness

    I’m sorry to attach such a stupid question to your lovely announcement, but I’m social bookmarking retarded. I installed your plugin (I’m not sure how to active Technorati like you show on your maxpower site, but that’s another issue). It works fine, but is there a way for me to set tags for individual posts so they’re autofilled in the user’s delicious (or whatever) screen?

    To activate Technocrati, you’d add

    'Technocrati' => Array(
    'favicon' => 'technocrati.png',
    'url' => '',

    to the array of allowed sites and then add:


    to the socialable_files array (after you’ve copied the image into the images folder). You’ll then need to return to your admin page and restore defaults again to get the Technocratic checkbox to show up.

    I have another question relating to this plugin:
    I only want to show the blog links on certain categories. So I’ve done this so far:

    $allowed_cats = Array(4,5,9,10);

    global $wp_query;
    $post = $wp_query->post;
    $this_cat = $post->cat_ID; // bit I added
    if (in_array($this_cat, $allowed_cats)) { // bit I added
    $permalink = get_permalink($post->ID);

    but I get a Warning: in_array() []: Wrong datatype for second argument error message. What am I missing? :/

    Tyssen, thank you so much …

    You should add support for Rojo as well

    I realised I was trying to reinvent the wheel. I was trying to exclude categories from which commenting was turned off so just used if ((‘open’ == $post-> comment_status)… instead.

    Tyssen or anyone who can help,

    where do you insert

    if ('open' == $post-> comment_status)

    in sociable.php script to remove the links from the non-commentable posts?
