Setting up Stumble Upon in the Sociable PluginBy
While it seems that everything I touch today breaks, I am learning a bunch in the process! My honorary error checker, Randa Clay discovered that my Stumble Upon button at the bottom of my posts wasn’t working. I checked and she was right (of course) – it didn’t work. So we checked hers. Guess what? It wasn’t set up right either. And I have found that quite of few of my favorite bloggers (I will email them privately) are also experiencing the same issue.
The Sociable plugin for WordPress allows you to select a variety of social networking sites and have little buttons for them created at the bottom of your posts – so people can submit them to Digg greatness or induce a great rush of traffic to your site via Stumble Upon. The plug in is nifty and easy to install, but there is a glitch in the original code for the Stumble Upon segment.
TO FIX YOURS
Login to your WordPress admin panel and select Plugins. Then select Plugin Editor. Choose the Sociable one. Take a look through the code until you find this:
Change it to:
Choose Update File and you should be in business!
Here’s hoping you now get a nice stream of Stumble traffic, Digg goodness and such! And don’t be shy about Digging or Stumbling posts you like here either ::wink, wink::
