Digg It! WordPress Plugin

A simple, straightforward WordPress plugin that lets you or your visitors submit your blog posts to Digg.com.

This is my first attempt at creating plugins for WordPress, so please bear with me. 🙂

1. Download the plugin from http://www.alleba.com/blog/wp-downloads/digg-it.zip
2. Extract and upload the contents of the archive to ‘yourserver.com/wp-content/plugins/digg-it/’
3. Login to your WordPress admin panel and browse to the Plugins section.
4. Activate the Digg It plugin.
5. Go to the Presentation section to edit your post template (usually named single.php)
6. Add the line:

< ?php digg_it(); ?>

after the post body.

I am aware of similar plugins that are much better XD. But I hope you find this plugin useful. I will improve on this plugin in the coming days. For complaints, suggestions, post a reply below. Thanks!

    The page titles do not pass through. Nor a short description. It just passes the URL…

    Hi, Can you please elaborate on installation item 6? Where do I find the ‘post body’ section on the template called single.php? Thanks
