This is a 2 year old post. Please proceed to the post linked to above this text.
This morning I had a couple of appointments to attend prior to coming online and this will be the case throughout the week. When I did come online I found a comment awaiting moderation that was really a question.
I read it and I felt bad. Obviously, the blogger who posted it could have found the answer quickly himself. This made me wonder how many bloggers are not aware of the basic wordpress blogging resources that are available at wordpress.com.
Blogging tip of the day: If you use the FAQs and forum search boxes you will find answers to your question more quickly than you will by posting to the forum or, asking another blogger.
Question: “How do you put the Digg and other buttons at the bottom of each post?”
Answer: Gosh, I feel bad because you waited so long for an answer that could have been gained in just a few moments by using the correct resources. This comment of yours has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic of the article that you posted to. Also it’s not a comment — it’s a question.
I’d like to encourage you to become acquainted with the FAQs and forum search boxes. These two will provide you with answers more quickly than posting to my blog or the forum will.
FAQs search box – type in “Digg button” – results
Forum searchbox – type in “social network buttons” – results
There is no elegant or automatic way to post social bookmark icons at the end of posts on your wordpress.com blog. Several possibilities do exist that involve fussing about with altering code on existing buttons but I’m not promoting them.
However, if you are willing to take a few extra minutes when you publish a post then a workaround has been provided by a well known fellow wordpress blogger. If you proceed now to the archfx post via the link I posted above you will find (1) the code and (2) the instructions so, you can place the social networks icons at the end of each post as I do.
