Added a Buzz This! Button to My Posterous

February 15, 2010

You want to do the same?  Here’s how:

I put mine here, I guess there may be better places — up to you, I guess.

You’ll obviously need to change the “srcTitle” and “srUrl” to match your own site.

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="border-collapse: separate; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: 2; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; font-size: medium;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(102, 102, 102); font-family: monospace; font-size: 10px;"><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;"><</span><span class="xml-tagname" style="color: rgb(170, 0, 187);">a<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span><span class="xml-attname" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">href</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">=</span><span class="xml-attribute" style="color: rgb(34, 136, 17);">"http://www.google.com/reader/link?url={Permalink}&title={Title}&srcTitle=Vince.DeGeorge&srcUrl=http://vdegeorge.com"</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">></span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;"><</span><span class="xml-tagname" style="color: rgb(170, 0, 187);">img<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span><span class="xml-attname" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">src</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">=</span><span class="xml-attribute" style="color: rgb(34, 136, 17);">"/images/buzz-icon.png"<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span><span class="xml-attname" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">alt</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">=</span><span class="xml-attribute" style="color: rgb(34, 136, 17);">"Buzz This!"<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">/></span><span class="xml-entity" style="color: rgb(170, 34, 34);">&nbsp;</span><span class="xml-text" style="color: black;">Buzz This!</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;"></</span><span class="xml-tagname" style="color: rgb(170, 0, 187);">a</span><span class="xml-punctuation" style="color: black;">></span></span></span>

The icon you’ll need.

The results:

Clicking on it brings up a “Note In Reader” window, where you can comment or add tags.

I’d like for it to be a javascript comment, much like the bookmarklet, but Posterous doesn’t allow javascript in theming (though I believe they plan on doing so in the future).

This was pretty quick and dirty and since just a basic link, you could really incorporate it on any website easily.

While initially I’m pretty lukewarm to Buzz, there is no doubt that it will be very relevant and widespread with the backing of Google.
