A blog reader commented in my post Another way of adding graphic to your blog Header indicating problem with implementing adding a Digg button to every posts as described in this site: Add Digg vote button on Blogger and asking for help. So I decided to test it out in one of my blogs Generating Revenue from your Website and did it successfully. Check it out for yourself.
The way to do this easily is to sign into your Dashboard, then for the selected blog, click LAYOUT, then click the EDIT HTML sub-tab. This will open the template editor window. Check the [ ] Expand template widget. When the template have been fully expanded, click your mouse inside the template editor window, press ctrl+A to highlight the whole template, right-click and select "copy" to copy the whole template into clipboard. Open Notepad, make sure the word wrap is off (in the Menu Bar, click "Format" then make sure the Word Wrap is turned off), paste the template into the empty Notepad. You need to find the tag
in the template
Again, click inside the Notepad and press ctrl+A to highlight all the codes, slide the verical scroll bar back to the top, in the Menu Bar, click EDIT then FIND and paste the above tag into the FIND field. Click FIND NEXT and that tag should then be highlighted in Notepad.
Replace the above tag with this codes (to facilitate this, you may want to intoduce some empty lines to separate the tag from the rest of the template).
<!-- DIGG -->
<div style='float:right; margin-left:10px;'>
digg_url = '<data:post.url/>';
Go back to the template editor (the whole template should still be highlighted if you have not done anything other than copying it into clipboard). Click the DELETE button. You should have an empty template editor window. Paste the content of the clipboard into the template editor window.
Preview, and if you see the Digg button in the Preview, save the template.
As always, before you make any changes to your template, always backup your template first.
This test is so successful, and having that Digg vote button in every posts of your blog is so useful, I will likely implement it into all my main blogs.
Update same day: The hack is so easy to implement I have impemented it for my major blogs. However, I am having second thoughts about it as anyone clicking on the Digg vote button gets taken away from the site (to Digg site). It doesn't open in a new window. I am going to experiment to see if I can get it to open in new window. Further update: 2 attempts succeed in displaying the Digg vote button, but clicking on it still lead to Digg site in the same window.
