diggZ-Et – digg WordPress Plugin

Note: This plugin is discontinued due to the fact that digg buttons no longer exist, since Summer of 2012.


diggZ-Et is a digg WordPress plugin that automatically displays a “digg” button for each post/page. I know some of you are thinking, “Oh great another Digg It plugin?”. Well yes, it’s another Digg It plugin, but it’s not the same old Digg plugin. This plugin was created primarily for one reason, that every other Digg WordPress plugin out there did not contain admin settings. Well guess what, this plugin does have admin settings! Enjoy the plugin, more plugins to come in the future.

All I ask is that you credit this plugin (i.e. include a link to this page or maybe add a link to your WordPress Blogroll).

With that said, I would love to hear what people think. Any suggestions or comments you have, I’d love to hear them.
