After a poking around the xml template for my site, and playing around with the Digg code, I’ve figured out how to add a Digg button to my posts.
Listed below is a quick how-to for adding this functionality to your website too.

  1. Make sure your blog is set to enable Post Pages and you are using the new Blogger, not the classic version
  2. Go to the customization section of your blog, on the Template tab select Edit HTML
  3. Make sure to click Download Full Template and save a backup copy to disk – just in case.
  4. Put a check in Expand Widget Templates.
  5. Search for <p><data:post.body/></p>
    Update: November 5th, 2008

    It has come to my attention that some templates use a slightly different formatting. If you cannot find the text listed above – try searching for <data:post.body/> and follow the rest of the instructions.

  6. Paste this on the line directly before it:
    <div style='float:right; margin-left:10px;'>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    digg_url=&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;;</script>
    <script src='http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js' type='text/javascript'/>
    </div>
  7. Preview your template to make sure it looks right – the Digg icon should appear at the top right of all your posts. Hover your cursor over it and make sure the link URL matches your post URL.
  8. If all looks well, click Save Template and then View your blog

Happy DIGGing!
