Adding Buttons to your WordPress Blog

October 28th, 2009 . by Anup



 

Buttons make the world go round. The reason for using buttons is that a lot of people don’t realize they are using social bookmarking services or RSS Feeds. They just call it Twitter, Facebook or Yahoo. They know clicking on those links adds it to their page or helps them share it. That’s why a simple RSS button or no social bookmarking links won’t help our cause.

 

Adding RSS Feed Buttons To Your Blog

 

Go to http://www.totallyfreeblogtools.com

Click on RSS Feed buttons tool.

Scroll down.

You should see Choose Feed Type . Choose the appropriate option. Type in your RSS address in the box or boxes that appear. Then right down you will see a couple of buttons.

Choose the buttons you wish to appear on your Blog or Site. Subscribe , Yahoo, Google and AOL.

Click on the Get RSS Feed Buttons Code.

Select the Code and Copy it All.

Once you’ve done that, log in to your WordPress Blog‘s Admin Section.

After logging in click on Appearance.

Click on Widgets.

Add a Text Widget to the Sidebar.

Open the Text Widget to edit it.

Before pasting the code that we copied, type in <ul>

Paste the RSS Feed Buttons Code.

At the end type </ul>

You can add a Title to the Text Widget if you like.

After that Click on Done.

Then Save Changes.

And You’re done.

 

Adding Social Bookmarking Buttons to Your

WordPress Blog.

The easiest way to do this is to install the Plug in called Sociable. There are a few other plug ins but Sociable in my opinion is the neatest and works best.

So Log in to your Blog’s Admin Area.

Click on the Plug ins tab.

Click on Add New.

Type Sociable into the search box that appears on the page and click search plugins.

Sociable should be the first plug in that turns up. Install it.

Once Installed you should see it under the Settings Tab.

Go to Sociable Settings.

Select the Sites you want displayed.

Scroll Down to Position. Select the options you want.

When you’re done scroll down and click on Save Changes.

That’s pretty much it. That is bare minimum you should choose to do. You can mess around with the other settings if you want to. But this is all that’s required.

 

Hope this helps. Would love to hear your Feedback . A lot can be found through Google for FREE. I suggest using it often.

 

As Always

Take Care.

Have a Great Day !

Be Sociable, Share!
