Addinto lets you bookmark a post in an online social bookmarking site (e.g.: delicious), or to share it in a social networking site (e.g.: Facebook) or simply email it. The reader only has to choose the right tab (Favourites, Articles or Email) to do that.
If you want to experience the tabbed bliss just click the link below:
Now how do you use it for your wordpress.com blog posts? Well, why not read the easy instructions and try it!
1.Get the Addinto bookmarklet for the browser of your choice. (I use Firefox). Get the bookmarklet from here. To get the bookmarklet, choose the yellow star.
* You have to perform step no.1 only once.
2. Publish a blog post and view it. Make sure the address bar of your browser shows the blog post url, and not the blog url! To be extra sure, just click the post title.
3. Click the bookmarklet from your browser (Addinto favourites). A new window will open in your browser.
4. Now click inside the address bar and copy the whole address bar. To do this, use the keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+a) and then (ctrl+c).
5. Go back to the edit mode of your post and choose HTML and not the visual mode. Write “Bookmark, promote or email this post” and click the link tab. Paste the copied url.
6. Save the blog post and view it. Click the link “Bookmark, promote or email this post” and experience the magic!
I want to use a button instead of a text link. How do I do that?
Well, if you prefer buttons, no problem! You can choose your own button and configure it according to your need by using the Addinto button generator!
After you publish a post, click the button generator link given above. (You can bookmark it in your browser for quick access.)
You can choose any button you like.
Be careful about some of the parameters.
- For the “Type” field choose “Favourites” and
- for “Link Type” choose “Simple” (in order to configure a user-friendly social-bookmarking solution that works for wordpress.com).
After you configure the bitton correctly, generate the button code (click the button “GENERATE”) and copy it.
Go back to the “Edit” mode of the blog post and choose the tab “HTML” and not “Visual”. Paste the code at the end of your blog post.
Update the post and view it. Click your new power button and enjoy!!
