Get your users to Digg more threads with this simple modification. It's more visible and will promote more Diggs.

What this does differently from the stock Bookmarks is put the Digg button on top of the post in a nice little box and displays how many diggs the post has gotten. This uses javascript provided by Digg. The background color can also be defined.

Update: Fixed the javascript so it will now show the thread title if it has special characters in it.

In SHOWTHREAD find:

Add this just above: (be sure to add your forum URL so it Digg can grab the title, you may optionally remove that line if you have an SEO mod installed but the title will have to be submitted manually)

Thanks for catching that, it's been changed. I've also added the URL so it will display the digg count on every page of a thread and automatically add the title.

This integration has boosted the traffic on my site in a huge way both in guests and new members. Digg is an extremely popular site and when people see the actual diggs in their posts it boosts it that much more.

Unfortunately not, that's one of the disadvantages and I have also not been able to find a way to change the text color.

Greetings..

Was wondering 2 things.. First.. is this possible.. and second.. can someone help me with the variables..


I have installed a snippet of code on my vbseo 1.0 template for vb 3.7beta3

The code is the following..


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In the digg_url code.. it works be uses the old VB urls and not the seo-friendly vbSEO urls.. I was wondering if there was variables for vbSEO to have the same effect but with the correct SEO rewrote URLs.

The button works to digg the post (which is already a function in vbSEO) however I would like it to show the digg count which will not work since the URLs get rewritten.


Does that make sense or am I babbling?

Example URLs Below


vbSEO url = http://forums.prisonofficer.org/offi...ed-escape.html

VB Normal URL = http://forums.prisonofficer.org/showthread.php?t=543




Thanks in advance.


Cory

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot and have ended up disabling Zoints SEO on my site because of it, which has really hurt my search engine results. For each SEO system the have a replacement variable, it's a matter of locating it.
