Adding Social networks buttons to wordpress.com posts

Filed under: autohotkey, development, wordpress — mhussein @ 5:37 pm

I wanted to add social networking buttons (del.icio.us, reddit, digg, …) like:
add to del.icio.us Digg it Stumble It! Add to Blinkslistadd to furladd to ma.gnoliaadd to simpyseed the vineTailRank
to the end of every post, There is no way to do it automatically as wordpress.com doesn’t support modifying the post template.

I found an ecellent post about this at sunburntkamel as I am very lazy (as most software developers) I have created a simple autohotkey script to do it for me.

The script prompts you for the url and the title then reads a simple template file adapted from sunburntkamel’s, and add the html code to the Clipboard ready for pasting.

you can download the script at socialsignature.zip This is a very simple script (I spent less than 10 minutes in writing it, most of that time writing comments, yes, I do write comments 🙂 whenever I can of course.)

Please tell me if you know a better way, or if you have problems or comments on the scripts.
