Looking around for ways to allow people to submit my posts to various social bookmarking networks I was introduced to share-this by a friend a while ago which is a much more elegant way of adding a whole host of bookmarking options in a discreet manner. I just hate those long lists of icons cluttering up the bottom of every new post.
When I started investigating adding the South African variants I came across a few plugins but struggled a little adding some of these onto my blog easily enough. When I noticed that Rafiq Phillips had added muti to the sociable plugin, one which I hated using myself I decided to see if I could do the same with share-this by Alex King. I’ve never edited a plugin before but this was extremely easy. I just poked around in some code in some other plugins and checked out some of the syntax, repeated it for this one, tested and Wallaaah! It’s “MUTIFIED”.
You can thank me by reading my posts and mutiying them one at a time :).
PS: I’m no php developer so cannot offer any support for this plugin modification, use it at your own risk. Ive tested it on my own site and it works fine. If you do find any problems let me know and I’ll see if I can find someone who can sort you out.
