[Solved] Digg This Button / Block?

PostAuthor: jwernerny » Wed Sep 05, 2007 2:57 pm

Hello,

I'm thinking about adding a "Digg This" button to my forum, but I am not sure how best to do it. If I add the most simple button, it pulls the URL from the browser, which is good, as it lets it get to the specific post, but its bad since it contains the session id. If I use the version where the URL is fixed, it won't go to the exact page. Has anyone solved this one yet?

Thanks,
- John

After fooling around trying to do this with Blocks in the portal, I finally decided to do it "down and dirty" by editing the templates files.

The first addition was to add a Digg This button to the Knowledge Base Articles. After some playing, I decided the best place to put the buttons was just after the Article Text. To do this, I edited the kb_article_body.tpl file and added the button link code (java.script) in.

kb_article_body.tpl Before:

Code: Select all
<END>   <tr>        <td><span>{ARTICLE_TEXT}</span></td>   </tr>   <BEGIN>


kb_article_body.tpl After]<END>   <tr>        <td><span>{ARTICLE_TEXT}</span>   <hr><center><script>digg_skin = 'compact';digg_window = 'new';digg_title = 'The Snow Tire FAQ - {ARTICLE_TITLE}';</script>  <script></script><script>  slashdot_title="The Snow Tire FAQ - {ARTICLE_TITLE}"; </script><script></script>  <script>reddit_url='http://www.snowtire.info/forum/kb.php'</script><script>reddit_title='The Snow Tire FAQ - {ARTICLE_TITLE}'</script><script></script></center></td>   </tr>   <BEGIN>[/code]

End Result: http://www.snowtire.info/forum/kb.php?mode=article&k=2


The next thing I added the capability to normal topic viewing. I played around with this a fair amount before I was happy. At first, I thought of doing the "Digg This" buttons on a post level, but that looked too cluttered. I finally decided to places the buttons just above the start of the topic post. This was all done by modifying viewtopic_body.tpl.

viewtopic_body.tpl Before:
Code: Select all
<table><tr><td><BEGIN><a><img></a><END><BEGIN><a><img></a><END></td><td>  {BANNER_14_IMG}<br>  {PAGINATION}</td></tr></table>


viewtopic_body.tplk After]<table><tr><td><BEGIN><a><img></a><END><BEGIN><a><img></a><END></td><td><script>digg_skin = 'compact';digg_window = 'new';digg_title = 'The Snow Tire FAQ - {TOPIC_TITLE}';</script>  <script></script><script>  slashdot_title="The Snow Tire FAQ - {TOPIC_TITLE}"; </script><script></script>  <script>reddit_url='http://www.snowtire.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t={TOPIC_ID}'</script><script>reddit_title='The Snow Tire FAQ - {TOPIC_TITLE}'</script><script></script></td><td>  {BANNER_14_IMG}<br>  {PAGINATION}</td></tr></table>[/code]

End Result: http://www.snowtire.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=131


Enjoy,
- John

BTW, There seems to be a bug with the Red-it links. If you don't specify the URL, it pulls out a random one. Therefore, you may want to modify the lines slightly.

The above post has been fixed.
