    Yes, but it’s not automatic; you have to do a little work yourself. I notice when I use GetSocial my hits go up by 20-30%. Unfortunately, I’m working on a Linux netbook and it is for Windows only:

    Once again, raincoaster comes through with more huge help. That GetSocial application is fantastic.

    Thanks. I wish I could take credit for it. It’s so good I actually donated, and God knows, I’m desperately impoverished.

    I created a little app to do the same thing you need. Right before I make a post I enter go the Social Bookmark Page and add my title and the short url. You can pick if you want a facebook icon, twitter icon, etc.

    You are welcome to use it if you want to.

    Hi,

    Is it possible to integrate a facebook, my space, active rain and twitter icon into a word press blog.

    Thanks in advance

    Find your button images, upload them to your wordpress.COM media library and then put them into a text widget.

    Hi Raincoaster,

    I just saw your reply. Great catch! It is not necessary for a Digg submission and I will remove it. I am not sure if it was supported by Digg or got inadvertently included. You can read what parameter’s Digg does accept at the bottom of: Digg Custom Submission-Only Button.

    Let me know if you have any other feedback.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, much appreciated. It’s always good to have alternatives (Getsociallive is down right now AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!)

    Can I add these two icons on the same line/block? Currently they are separate. See http://scottdwinter.com.

    Yes, you just edit the code to put them both in the same text widget and remove any div or p tags splitting them.

    I have a nice set of icons in two sizes. The first link is a pic of the large icons;

    The second link is a zip file containing both sizes:
