If you’ve had a chance to check out my Top 10 Must Have WordPress Plugins post, you probably already know that I’m in love with the Digg Digg plugin.

If not, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a plugin that has become a must have on my blog!

Social media integration is a must these days and few things are more annoying than trying to get countless little share button plugins to all behave at the same time. It seems no matter what you do with the suckers at least one of them always has to have a mind of its own.

Fortunately for us, there’s Digg Digg, a WordPress plugin which integrates nineteen and counting possible social media share buttons. It makes them all easy to lay out, lots of flexibility and the best part is they tend to actually go where you tell them to! (Novel idea right?) While adding the functions to the thesis theme is much more light-weight and hosting resource friendly, but not everyone wants to poke in the code.

I’ve only ran into a handful of free themes that this plugin did not play nice with – and one highly customized theme. Beyond that, its stable, functional, easy to set up, and plays nice with other plugins. I love all of the choices it gives you too!

Here’s a tutorial on what you can do with Digg Digg and how to get it set up on your WordPress site!

The video is rendered in high-definition (720p) so if you want you can open it in 720p and then in full screen to make it easier to read.

There ya have it!

Are you using social media share buttons? Which ones do you feel are essential? With all the possible social sites how do you decide which ones to show and which ones not to? Are you using Digg Digg already or are you using another plugin (or three!) to get your share buttons? Which ones are your favorites?

If you enjoyed this post I hope you’ll test my Digg Digg buttons out really good (above) and share it with your friends and followers! LOL! I look forward to reading and replying to your comments below!

Hey Kimberley

I am in LOVE with Digg Digg! It took a little fiddling with the code to get the margins etc set right for my theme, because I use the vertical left margin Ajax Floating version, but oh so worth it in the end! And since I know code it didn’t take much. Great vid tute to.
cheers

Hey Kim,

When I used Digg Digg in the past, they had Tweetmeme integrated, is that not the case anymore? Also, is it possible to add another button to Digg Digg if you have the code?

I need to add the first button here: http://www.tipd.com/bloggers but I’m not sure how to do this – especially using Thesis. It would be great if I could just add the code to Digg Digg somehow.

Sorry for the first question, I wasn’t able to view the video until now (I’m at work). But the other question still stands. lol

Yeah, I definitely was looking for a copy-paste solution.

Right now I have Tweetmeme and Blog Engage at the top – which I will probably go back to Digg Digg for. Then I have Sexy Bookmarks at the bottom (along with Onlywire, but that is only there because of the auto-submit feature).

I would like to add a button for Tip’d, which is a site for financial news and articles. If I get an article on the front page, it can double my daily page views!

They don’t have a plugin, but they do give you a code to install in a Permalink Template.

Hey Khaleef, if they give you the code maybe the solution is to modify your theme and add it that way.

If you want, send me the code and I will see if I can add it to my blog and then give you the instructions.

Great little plugin that helps syndicate your content.

Hey Peter, thanks for the offer. Here is the code:

And here is the site with the instructions http://www.tipd.com/bloggers

I am running the Thesis Theme, so I’m not sure how to find the section to place this code.

Hello Khaleef, I will look at this on the weekend, however in the instructions it do mention you can use the Sociable Plugin to add Tip’d, let me know if that is a solution for you, otherwise I will do a quick video to show you how to edit the post template to add the code.

I’ve just installed this plugin on my blog today. What a great looking plugin, I really like the floating ajax bar margined on the left of my blog. Although I have some minor problems with it, but it is ok.
Thanks for this review. :)
