Add This Bookmark and Share Widget Code for Serendipity Templates

February 4th, 2008 in Serendipity Blog and topic/s , , . Comments Off

This one is for Harald, but any Serendipity user will be able to use the code so keep reading. The Add This Bookmark and Share Widget is the little box you see under my entries that pops up and let’s users stumble or bookmark my entries.
[Hint] press the friggin’ button right now! [/Hint]

So, the code needs to go into entries.tpl of the template you’re using, just open this in your favorite text editor, and find the entry footer code for plugins which will look like this {$entry.add_footer}. Now add an HTML breakline <br /> then paste the following code;

{$entrydata.url|escape:url}
<!-- AddThis Bookmark Button BEGIN -->
<script type="text/javascript">
addthis_url = '{$entry.rdf_ident|escape:url}';
addthis_title = '{$entry.title|escape:url}';
addthis_pub = 'carlgalloway';
</script><script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/addthis_widget.php?v=12" ></script>
<!-- AddThis Bookmark Button END -->

You need to replace ‘carlgalloway’ with your own ‘Add This‘ username, so make sure you’ve created an account. Once you’ve done this, upload the new entries.tpl to your blog server and enjoy the rush of stumbles and bookmarks you’ll get. Don’t forget to press my button!!

Using Serendipity’s HTML Nugget Video

December 22nd, 2007 in Serendipity Blog and topic/s , , , , , . Comments Off

In this video tutorial I show Serendipity users how to install the HTML Nugget plugin and then use it to add a network badge to their blog sidebar. The same technique can be used to place Adsense advertising into a sidebar, or a counter.

This video complements the video I prepared a few days ago on plugin management and is aimed at new users.

I’m still looking for ideas for other s9y screencasts so please add your comment below to give me ideas.
