Social Bookmarking for WordPress

UPDATE (1/30/08)- Please use this page to create a bookmarklet for yourself. You can select the bookmarking services that you want to include in your post. All you need to do is drag the bookmarklet to your bookmark folder. Everytime you create a post, just open that bookmarklet, enter the post slug, copy the HTML code and then paste it to the bottom of your post in Code View. In case you selected the “Help” icon while adding bookmark services, you’ll notice that the code author has included a link back to his site at the very end of the HTML code. So every time you use his code, his blog gets a track back. So, don’t select the “Help” icon or delete that part from your code when you paste it to your blog post. 

******************************PLEASE DISREGARD EVERYTHING BELOW THIS**************************

Many of us struggle while adding social bookmarks at the end of our posts. Manually adding each bookmark is just painful. Yesterday, I discovered this greasemonkey script that adds 20+ bookmarks at the end of your posts in a single click. The guy has done a brilliant job, I must say. 🙂

Here are the steps:

1. Install Mozilla Firefox (just in case…)

2. Install the greasemonkey script

3. Re-start Firefox

4. Install the above script

5. While writing a new post, click on “Code” –> Tools–>Greasemonkey–>User Script Commands

6. Have a Kodak moment and leave me a comment expressing your gratitude 😛

There are some pros and cons of using this script. Please visit the original script author’s site.

See the bookmarks in action at the end of this post.

  1. Wow cool, this thing is pretty sweet and much easier than what I did. But then again, it’s not all that customizable. But I think I’m gonna use it. Though I also thing the bookmarklets trick is good. Atleast it lets you have selective bookmarks.

  2. @ish, Yes, I agree. I would prefer having more bookmarks than missing out on something anyway. Plus it’s customizable. I think that this is one of the best bookmarks out there! I’m already getting hits from stumbleupon. And I even noticed some people using furl and spurl.

  4. was thinking of adding this script and found that this author’s blog has been deleted. You might want to delete the link. You can delete this comment too!

  5. @ Nita:

    The author’s blog has been deleted, but the script hasn’t been deleted (located in the first paragraph of my post).

    But I’m going to edit this post and include the link to the social bookmarklet generator that I use. I get lots of emails everyday from people asking me about it.

    Thanks for reminding me. This is the link in case you’re interested: http://www.archaeoastronomy.co.uk/bookmarklet.html

    You don’t need Greasemonkey either. Just select your bookmarks and then drag the bookmarklet to your bookmark folder. Let me know if you have any problem.

    Edit: I’ve updated the post with some instructions 🙂

  6. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images
    on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if
    it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
