iFeedReaders Bookmarklets Now Available

Two bookmarklets are now available to quickly access the iFeedreaders bookmark, or subscribe page.

Install the ‘Bookmark This’ bookmarklet and whenever you come across a webpage that you’d like to save, just hit the ‘Bookmark This’ bookmarklet and you’ll be transported, along with the page information, to the iFeedReaders bookmark page with all the pre-populated social bookmark buttons.

Install the ‘Feed This’ bookmarklet and whenever you come across a raw feed, just hit the ‘Feed This’ bookmarklet and you’ll be transported, along with the feed information, to the iFeedReaders subscribe page with all the feed subscription buttons pre-populated.

There are a few issues with the ‘Feed This’ bookmarklet as IE7 doesn’t like it at all and Safari (with RSS capabilities) doesn’t send across quite the right URL. However, it does work great in Firefox. :)

Check out the iFeedReaders bookmarklet page.

Feedback & suggestions are always welcome.

New Service Submission Form

Adding a feed reader or social bookmarking service just got easier; on me. :)

With the help of WuFoo, I’ve created a form to collect all the information and store it in a database so I don’t loose requests in my inbox.

If you have a service you’d like us to add, just fill out the Add This Service form and I’ll get to it when I can.

Nine New Bookmark Services Added

The list of social bookmark services continues to grow. Today we added nine new services to the social bookmark page. These services include:

StumbleUpon

Yardbarker (Sports)

Wykop (Polish)

PopCurrent

Mister Wong (German)

Favorri (Turkish)

Hatena (Japanese)

Diigo

Britney (Music)

Those that are already using the iFeedReaders bookmark button will immediately get to take advantage of these new buttons. They will be making their way to other tools as I get time.

Blog Specific Subscribe & Bookmark Buttons Added

iFeedReaders as just updated the single subscribe and bookmark buttons to include code for Blogger, WordPress and Movable Type. With the blog specific code, the buttons can be added to your templates and the code auto generated.

This is a really good thing for the social bookmark button as it can be included in the post loop and the bookmark code will be automatically generated for each post. For an example, look at the bookmark buttons below all the posts on the iFeedReaders news site.

If anyone comes across any bugs or has any questions, let me know.

Thanks

Feedshow, Fwicki, Include, Newgie and Newshutch Added

iFeedReaders has added 5 new buttons to the subscribe page today. Those include Feedshow, Fwicki, Include, Newgie and Newshutch.


These options are automatically available for any outstanding iFeedReaders subscribe buttons.

If you haven’t created one for your site, isn’t it about time?

Feed Button WordPress Plugin Overhaul

The Chicklet Creator WordPress plugin recently got a major update. You now have the ability to select, control and update feed buttons from within the admin panel of your WordPress blog. It’s just another way we are trying to make getting subscription buttons added to your blog easier.
