Share This 1.1

I’ve released an update to my well-received Share This plugin. Version 1.1 has a couple of small changes:

  1. Fixed a typo that caused the Blinklist URL to be incorrect.
  2. Fixed a double = in the Furl URL.
  3. Abstracted the strings for easy translation.
  4. Changed the mechanism for creating the URLs so that it is compatible with more themes.

I also started a conversation a few days ago about a generic “share this” icon, an idea which folks seem to like but one that hasn’t gotten a lot of art contributions yet. Chris Pirillo let me know that he wrote of a similar desire a few months back. Chris’s description of an icon in the same general vein as the feed icon is more what I had in mind than some of the contributions I’ve seen so far. Let’s see some creativity!

The download is available on my WordPress Plugins page.

If you have any trouble with this, please open a thread in the WP Support Forums and send me the link.
