When moving from WordPress.com, my Digg shortcodes broke.
I wanted a simple way to transition my Digg chicklets to a WordPress.org installation.
I created a function that does nothing special, except for reproducing the Digg shortcode functionality on WordPress.com. All you need to do is enter
[digg=http://digg.com/path_to_story_on_digg], and it will create a Digg This chicklet for you. Here’s the code in action →
How to install this on your blog
Simply copy the code above into your theme’s functions.php file. Any existing Digg shortcodes should automatically start working again, and you also will be able to use the functionality as you were doing on the WordPress.com site.
