Several people have noticed, most notably Andy Beard, that the Sociable WordPress plugin is, next to be being a cool plugin, kind of a dead project. I had modified it quite a bit for Mel’s blog, and my own later on, to include Sphinn, Facebook, Mixx, Google Bookmarks, Live and Twitter (the latter inspired by Andy Beard). I’ve emailed the author a few times, and didn’t get any response, and since it’s released under the GPL license, I’ve decided to give it a new version number and do a “take-over”.
- Fixed the StumbleUpon issue which multiple people have been dealing with
- Removed the auto-update stuff because that’s now dealt with by WordPress itself
- Nofollowed all links
- Added the plugin to the WordPress plugin repository, find it here.
You can download it here: Sociable – Social Bookmarking for WordPress.
If you have any suggestions, social bookmarking sites I should add or other stuff: drop them in the comments!
