Adding Social Bookmarking to Community Server 2008 Or Any Website

Here is an excellent article on how to use the "addthis.com" widget with Community Server by mystyleit:

I used the instructions with Community Server 2008 without any modification even though they were written for CS 2007.

In case it is not clear in the original post, here are my steps:

  1. sign up with addthis.com 
  2. get your button code from addthis.com. I used the "website" button version and the dropdown style option.
  3. URL encode the button code you got from  addthis.com  using http://www.albionresearch.com/misc/urlencode.php
  4. paste the URL encoded button code into the PasteHere variable in the line below, which is the new config element:
  5. paste the entire new config element  as modified by step 4 (e.g., ) into CommuntyServer.config at the end of the CSModules element.
