    I went ahead and deleted the message. should be forced to the left. instead of where it is… not griping or anything… just didn’t look too swift. No boggie, will use it the other way… easier to work with.. :-)

    Honest answer – I’m still trying to wrap my head around it as well although I haven’t tried it yet.

    Please give me a bit to get caught up and I’ll take a shot. Have to reread the article as well.

    it (the iframe) is floated to the right.

    if you’re feeling tricky you can add this to your post:

    <table width='57px'><tr><td>
    [digg=http://digg.com/some_article]
    </td></tr></table>

    since the table encloses the floating digg thingy, it can only go as far right as you let it. (the iframe itself is 55px wide)

    Looks better than it looked before. I can fiddle with it to make it look decent… thanks for the new feature!!! Woot! :)

    yep.

    please send in feedback asking them to fix the default styling. using a table is a bad, bad hack.

    You young people today with your “tables are bad.” In my day we had to code everything into tables. And we had to walk through five miles of…

    you had to wade through 50 feet of snow in your underware?

    software only gets fixed when there are proper bug reports of what’s wrong with it.

    the only reason we’re getting a digg button at all is because so many people sent in feedback asking for it.

    Most of those folks seem to have been asking for the long string of those social icon – link thingies.

    This is cool! But I can not get it to work. When added all that shows is the raw code.
    [digg=http://digg.com/url_to/story_on_digg]

    Does anything need to be changed or added to it?

    I am registered, logged in and have submitted a story.

    You tell ’em! :)

    Same here – all I see is the code, like velvethammer does. Is there a time delay or something?

    Velvet, I don’t see it on your blog make sure that you’re entering the code within the Code tab of the editor, not the Visual tab.

    velvethammer & peterhgregory —

    The announcement is not very clear, I fear, if you’re new to this sort of thing.

    You have login to Digg, submit your article there, get the specific Digg URL for your article AND THEN replace the long Digg URL with that URL for each article.

    You’re only keeping the “[digg=]” part as described in the announcement. You have to cut the example URL given and add in your own specific Digg URL for your article.

    Is that clearer?

    Ah, on the CODE tab! NOW it is working!!

    Thanks!!!
