WP Digg This

WP Digg This is a plugin that adds a Digg button, but with a twist. Instead of adding a Digg button to all your posts, WP Digg This plugin selectively adds the button only to posts you want.

To add a digg button just add a 'digg' custom field with value '1'.

WP Digg This can display digg button on your single pages but there is an option to show them on home and archive pages as well.


dl WP Figlet


1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
3. If you want to show the Digg button, add a custom field with the key 'digg' and value '1' (see the screenshot).
4. If you want to remove the button simple delete the custom field.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

WP Digg This uses Digg API to show the Digg button with the number of Diggs. It shows the button only on selected posts and this is what differs it from other similar plugins.

    I am trying to get this to show up on the right side of the posts.

    I have edited the plugin per instructions on the WP plugin site through the editor and it does not change anything.

    Do I need to make the change on my computer and ftp it back up?

      Solved the problem :)
      I just add this code (tweetmeme_source = "yourtwitterusername";) to solve the problem by specifying the ‘tweetmeme_source’ parameter in the JavaScript.

      • Sep 27th, 2009 8:50 PM

        So what does the code look like when you insert it for those of us that can semi-manipulate code but don't understand what we are doing? Like do you just add the (tweetmeme_source = "yourtwitterusername";) just anywhere? or is there something before and after it like a (tweetmeme_source = "yourtwitterusername";) or something? Please help as I am trying to get this thing working promoting @FloridaHomesMag instead of @Tweetmeme, and do you place the javascript right by the other javascript??

          Normal usage is twitter=1

          • Sep 29th, 2009 3:41 AM

            dont you have to edit the plugin files in order for when someone RT's your post for it to say @yourusername instead of @tweetmeme ??? I need to figure out what code I need to add for that.

        • Oct 15th, 2009 12:15 AM

          go to wp-digg-this.php and look for the twitter function:

          function WPDiggThis_Twitter($url)

          the script part should look like this:

          tweetmeme_url = \''.js_escape($url).'\';
          tweetmeme_source = "yourtwittername";

          replace yourtwittername with your twitter name
