  1. i did as instructed by this article but get an error on my page where the digg button should be. the error says " Digg This Button Error\n\nThe code implemented by the creator of this page has the following problem:\n\nThe URL does not appear to be a properly formed hostname.\n\nVisit for more help in debugging."

  2. i figured out that the blog url must be manually inserted in place of 'website url' in the html for this to work.
    hope that this is helpful to anyone trying to do this. to see how mine looks, you are welcome to visit:

  3. yes mayla you need to manually insert url then only it will work
