<a rel="nofollow" style="text-decoration:none;" href="" onclick="';url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&amp;bodytext=&amp;tag s=&amp;title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title));return false;" title="Bookmark to: Digg"> <img style="padding-bottom:1px;" src="digg.gif" alt="Bookmark to: Digg" name="Digg" border="0" id="Digg"/> </a>

I suppose you shall edit main_posts.html template, pasting this code somewhere after {$mainPostArea}.

You may enclose it in forum standard tables as well, like

<table class="tbTransparent">
<tr><td class="tbTransparentCell">[SOCIAL NETWORKING CODE COMES HERE]</td></tr>

And don't forget to copy those images like facebook.gif under forums root folder, or modify the code to refer to them from another folder.

How could you get this to show up in the top right hand corner of the first post? That would be ideal!!!

This would be more difficult - you need to associate this code with some variable in bb_plugins.php, then make this variable appearing using parseMessage() function.

What about a Social Bookmarking Plugin for MiniBB, where the Admin can choose and/or edit the Bookmarking Websites. It would be cool.

Not sure I understood it.
Currently each such site has a code which you need to paste. Paste it at any place of miniBB templates you want. What else? What kind of choice for the admin do you mean?

OK ^^, it was written little terrible. Sorry but my english is not very good. Look at the Smilie Addon where you can add/choise Smilies as one Example. I mean a Admin Panel were the Admin can choise or Add Bookmarkings Sites like Facebook or or whatever an this Sites added in the Forumpost as Icons. ^^

I hope this is a little bit better.

I tested a 'social bookmarking' link on three of my sites and it didn't seem to bring any results so I removed the spyware from two so far ;)

I'm not sure I understood what do you mean under "choose smilies". Smilies are set up manually editing the file, as much as you could open templates/main_posts.html and paste any codes you want, at any place you want. Each site mentioned has such codes provided on their pages. For example: code for Twitter buttons - code for Facebook buttons.

All add-ons you mentioned, can't live on themselves - you shall edit a template to paste their output, anyway.

Then what for we would need kind of special output, if you could edit template right away and paste the code for bookmarks directly? What is difficult or not clear for you, what do you need this add-on for?

BTW I agree to tom322, nobody know what those codes are about, and we at miniBB do not really support something which comes from 3rd party sites. It has been passed just 10 years since the fashion was around putting counters or webrings on sites, now everybody puts Facebook or Twitter, like it would help them a lot to grow, in another 10 years there may be other websites which you could advertise for free, getting nothing instead. I'm afraid it's not our politics, and if we talk about kind of visual tools for admin, there would be much more important work regarding add-ons for modifying miniBB options, else spending time for such efforts which are not really worth it.

Actually, if there would be 100 requests like this, I would think about writing an add-on, but since there is currently only one anonymous person requesting this, I think we will skip at this point, sorry -but thanks for suggestion anyway, and if you need it for your personal forum, you are welcome to refer to our customers service.
