    How to add Digg and Tweetmeme Button In Thesis WordPress Theme

    I have already covered few topics on customizing Thesis wordpress theme, If you have missed them, you can have a look at :

    Looking at my referral log, I’m glad that many people bought thesis and I’m sure they must be seeing the positive result. To make them more comfortable with Thesis , as I said earlier I will be coming up with more topic on Thesis theme customization.

    Here is a quick code, which you can add into you custom_functions.php to add Digg and Tweetmeme button, beside your post title.   Copy the code and paste it in your custom_functions.php file

    function Digg_button() {
    if (is_single()) {
     echo '<div style="float:right; padding-left: 5px;"><script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"> </script><script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script></div>';
    add_action('thesis_hook_before_headline', 'Digg_button');

    This simple code will add a Digg and tweetmeme button in your post. You can also edit your custom.css according to your previous customization to add more styling to your Tweetmeme and Digg button. A Working example of this code can be seen at Shoutmeloud.

    In case if you don’t wish to add Tweetmeme with code, you can also grab Tweetmeme wordpress plugin.

    If you still looking for best SEO wordpress theme , I will suggest Grab Thesis wordpress theme.

    harsh, how can I insert facebook share and twitter button on pages. I have already added it to post but has no idea regarding adding it to wordpress pages.



    Hello Harsh,

    If you check my blog you can see these buttons are coming in one line. Can you please tell me how i can make them come in horizontal line, like you have in this post?

    Dr. Lawrence Kindo

    Hey Harash – Great article.

    I’m curious if you’ve written a tutorial on how to get the sm icons floating at the left hand side of this page?

    Thanks for this. I originally had my Tweetmeme button within the post before the first letter.

    This spaces it a lot more and makes it look a bit more professional. I have already updated my site and loved how it looks now :)

    I don’t have the Digg button on my site, don’t know why not.

    I think I found the solution to the question I asked above. you just use the thesis_hooks_before_post hook instead of thesis_hook_before_headline.

    any idea on how to add the digg button on top right side of the post content, unlike this code which adds the buttons besides the title.

    I tried to use Tweetmeme but didn’t really like it since somehow it messed up my posts when trying to add images. Therefore i decided to add all of the buttons in the end with a “sharing is caring”-navigation.
