Voting in the Blogosphere

As you may see, I have amended my theme to offer you blogosphere voting buttons. How did I do this. With help from Rich Burridge I amended my themes _day template file.


<!---- This is the digg example ---->

<a href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=3&url=$absBaseURL$entry.permaLink;title=$entry.title"
  rel="external" title="Submit it to Digg">

<!-- I am using Rich Burridge's Icons -->

  <img src="http://blogs.sun.com/richb/resource/bookmarkIcon-digg.png"
      width="16" height="14" alt="" border="0"/>
  </a> &nbsp;
 

The Border="0" is quite important, as in my original implementation I did not treat the four icons equally. This controls if there is a border around the picture, which since I have a white background and white icons, looks better than the active link colour border, which is as you can see orange.

I wonder if I should convert the theme to my web space greens.

Follow my steps at del.icio.us (, or here)

Thanks to Jim Grisanzio who rendered his del.icio.us feed on his blog, using their link roll gadget. (You may need to log into del.icio.us to make it work).

I have implemented mine here in my sidebar panel, with a limit of 7, so you'll need to come to my HTML version of the page to see it. I need to work on the HTML style that the roll is published in, but I shall be amending my personal sites to use both this and the tags tool. Because I bookmark a lot of what I browse, by reading my del.icio.us feed (the hyperlink is in the sidebar), you can get some idea of what I am (or am planning) to do.

I was busy doing some DIY this weekend, so the new links at the moment are not based on the weekend's reading, which my monday links often are. I am considering assembling a computer of my own, which for thos of you who know me is a big step, so we have a few e-shopping sites that will sell me stuff, although these are not recommendations. I'm merely sharing my research.
