Movable Type Plugin: Sociotags
The Sociotags plugin includes a huge array of references to page sharing sites, and each of them can be enabled or disabled. With sociotags enabled, you'll get a box that looks like this (not an exhaustive list):
- Movable Type 4
- Template Installer
- Download Sociotags for Movable Type, and extract the archive file.
- Upload the contents of the "mt-static" folder to the "mt-static" folder in your Movable Type installation.
- Upload the contents of the "plugins" folder to the "plugins" folder in your Movable Type installation.
- Go to Preferences -> Plugins for each of the blogs where you want to enable Sociotags.
- Go to the Sociotags plug-in, press "Settings," and click on the "Install Templates" button. This will install the necessary stylesheet template.
- Go to the templates list, and rebuild the Sociotags stylesheet templates.
- Go back to the Sociotags settings, check the "Enable" box, and click "Save Changes."
- For each template for which you plan to use Sociotags, add the following line between the <head> and </head> tags (if you are using the MT4 default templates, go to Template Modules and edit the "Header" template):
- Add the following tag to the templates that generate your entries (if you are using the MT4 default templates, your best best is probably to edit the "Entry Metadata" template):
- Add a link to the Sociotags for Movable Type page on your own blog on all pages where the Sociotags are shown (you'll probably want to do this in the "Footer" template). The software is free of charge, but you must add a link.
