Installation Time: [error] number too small
Products: 1
VB Version: 3.6.X
  • v1.02
    • added on/off in admincp
    • added digg image/link if you haven't added the url to the thread
    • forgot to add the database field
    • forgot a hook/plugin
    • checks HTTP_REFERER, for digg.com then looks up the thread URL if it returns a digg_url then it will add it to the thread.
    • threadadmins can also manually add the url. The manual edit overrides the auto add url.
    • enable/disable users digg counts
    • disable per-forum option
    • enable/disable auto add digg url option
    • custom placements
    • custom digg image
    • fixed autoadd (which will make user counts work)
Example: [live demo]


This has evolved into full digg integration, when someone diggs someone elses topic. And someone on digg.com clicks on the link, the thread poster gets credited with 1 digg. Plus the digg button with the current digg count gets added to the threads postbit.


  • Install product


if your upgrading from a version less than 1.06 you will need to uninstall the product then re-install it. If the version is 1.06 then you can just install the product with Allow Overwrite on.

Custom postbit placements:

  • <!-- diggTopic_diggit --> - For the digg button
  • <!-- diggTopic_userdiggcount --> - For the user digg count

If you like then [Mark As Installed]

version 1.05 updated

Ok heres a scenario someone likes your thread and they are a digg member. They decide to digg it, 4 mins later your digged page is on diggs upcoming page and someone decides to click it. Your forum will see that the visitor is coming from digg.com and trying to access thread X, what will happen next is your forum will use diggs API to check if the thread URL is dugg if it is it will record the DIGG url and add it to your thread. Now if a thread has a digg url then the process wont be repeated.

Hope you like it, i spent some time on it :D

Downloaded and installed product. Works Great.

Maybe the traffic on this product is not high as it is a major holiday long weekend in the U.S. Indy 500, Nascar CC600, sunny weather, parties and stuff.

Post the update.
