When I add the Digg tool to my blog post in the HTML section of the post, and click "ok" it erases it. It works when I put it outside of a blogpost but not in a blog post. Here is the code

Hello Nathan

Can you try posting your code again? This time try wrapping your code inside with <!-- your code goes here --> This helps to keep your code from being read.

Sure. <!-- <script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script> -->
Sorry about that

Hi Nathan - some code like the one above won't work in a blog post. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the blog post editor and I'm going to pass this onto our development team.

I'm sorry that this can't be added to your blogposts.

Hi Nathan,

I'm sure there is another way to 'work around' the problem you have.

i dont use Yolas blog feature to much but i have a bit of experience with social networking.

I have tested this method on my (forgotten) blog page and it works.

I'm not sure exactly what it was you were trying to do but this method would work if you wanted to allow users to 'digg' your blog post.

See here - Hexham.info

The first post 'antiques fair' has a link to digg the post at the bottom.

It has some cool extras like adding a title / description / topic and media selection.

You could also add a digg image as a link instead of the text i use,

If this is what you were trying to achieve let me know.

Lee.

Sort of, I was sort of looking at putting in the top right hand corner of the post sort of like here ( http://tinyurl.com/ndenfn ). I've done that in the comments section, but I didn't like it at the bottom. Thanks for your help
