    bye Jola

  3. Thanks Jola, i will try your recommendation :-)

  4. "Blog Post Button
    If you want to include the button below each post, simply copy-and-paste the code below into the 'Main Index Template' template, right before the end of the '< div class="entry">' tag. Then save the changes."

    My question is: where can I find the Main Index Template?

  5. The sidebar widget is only going to send your main blog URL to those social bookmarking sites, not any particular post. Use these instructions instead:

  6. thanks raincoaster! youre the best!

  7. You're welcome. If for whatever reason it doesn't work for you, read the comments in that thread; several people have had different issues to work around. But that's what I use on my posts and it works very well. Sunburntkamel invented it.

  8. Actually, it worked! I used my idle blog so that I wont distort the current blog Im using. And it did. So I will start to put more of this in my other old posts and for the new posts soon. Sunburntkamel is the mastermind!

    we wordpress.com bloggers don't have access to that template. the instruction was not meant for wordpress.commers.

    The sidebar widget is only going to send your main blog URL to those social bookmarking sites, not any particular post.

    just in case someone wants to use addthis for blog posts, it IS possible to do that.

    read this easy tutorial to figure out how you can use addthis to help users bookmark individual blog posts! :D

    How to modify the Addthis social bookmarking code so that it works for individual wordpress.com blog posts

    --

    (in case this is a double post, accept my apologies in advance. i was disconnected after posting and now i am trying again.)

  10. Thanks sanjidabd. I like your blog. :-)

  11. hi! i'm a newbie with this social bookmarking thing, and based on the instructions here: http://runningthroughrain.wordpress.com/2007/07/15/social-bookmarking-links

    does this mean i have to keep on editing the HTML every time i post so that the widgets would appear?

    thanks!

  12. yes! thats it, if you it to appear in every of your post. But i guess its worth it. :-)

  13. sanjidabd's back! *waves to sanjidabd*

    Here is another generator for you folks:

  14. hello! sanjidabd!

  15. Yes, you have to do it every single post. Once you get used to it, though, it goes very fast.

  16. yep i agree with raincoaster. Actually, that is what i am using now!

  17. raincoaster, thanks an awful lot for the link re:bookmarking! Me at TheZoo loves you for it!

  18. You're welcome. I didn't write the actual code, though. Sunburntkamel did that.

  19. hello dissfunctional and baikong!

    i wish i could be BACK back, you know! blogging has taken a back seat due to a stormy offline front. but i will be doing the best i can to blog and be helpful to wp.commers!

    thanks for liking me so much! {hugs}

  20. I know it works for others, but I've never been able to get the individual post buttons developed by Sunburntkamel to work for me. It's user error though, as it seems to work great for everyone else. Don't worry - I'm just doing my Eyore "woe is me" thing. :)

  21. Hello all. Relatively new blogger, and wanted to say thanks for all the help. I'm going to start using the generator shared by dissfunktional, see if that's enough. If not, I'll graduate to the full sunburntkamel code.

  22. Let me revise that statement -- it's easy to include them all! Thanks again.

  23. hi sanjidabd! we missed you know. :-)

    hi kstafford - are you sure? hmmm...

    cparente - yeah, dissfunktional suggestions are all good! and welcome to wordpress!

  24. kstaff, it's probably the program you're doing the editing in. Try using Wordpad and paste them in using "Remove Formatting" because I find in every case where it won't work it's because the quotes have been converted to curly quotes. If that doesn't work, follow sanjidabd's instructions for the other widget.

    I was banned on Digg this week. They emailed me back asking if I cleared cookies and cache.

  26. i have created an Addthis social bookmarking bookmarklet for wordpress.com blog posts

    it will help you generate addthis codes for individual blog posts easily and without failure.
    enjoy! :D

  27. i edited the permalink cos there was a mistake. please try this one instead:

    Addthis bookmarklet for wordpress.com blogposts

    i'm truly terribly sorry for the inconvenience.

  28. You guys really know what you're doing. I'm a 2-week-old blogger trying to figure out what I need to do to promote my blog. I read on the WordPress site that THEY send notification to Technorati and the other big sites each time we write a post. If that's so, why is more necessary, and WHAT exactly is necessary? What does doing an add-this bookmarketlet do for a blog that tags don't already do?

  29. They do. They let all the major search engines including Technorati blog search/ranking know automatically every time you make a post.

    Those add-ons let other people recommend you to social bookmarking sites like Digg, etc, where stories are recommended by individuals, presumably on merit. There is no automatic submission for those sites, because that would be spam. They are not the same.

    Tags do not do either of those things.
