Social Media Button

Postby steveking on Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:08 am

Just a thought but in the Linux world there are a hell of alot of bloggers. Would it be possible to add a Linux Mint socail button on your site alongside your twitter/facebook etc?

Also ontop of that make a members profile viewable and postable? So you can follow/see what your favourite blogger has been up to inside the Linux community?

I know that I would click on the "Linux Mint" social button if I found the blogger to be interesting/helpful. It gives the reader a portal into more distro specific forum posts instead of reading through tons of different distros trying to find the one more relevant to you.

Any thoughts on this?
I appologise if this has been done/mentioned already I'm new to this forum and indeed Linux Mint. (migrated from ubuntu as they're heading down a part I dont agree with)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ok so I have managed to do it :)

Check out how it works at my site:

https://www.steveblog.co.uk/

It was quite easy to do, I'm on a wordpress site so its all easy tbh. just add the social media widget and create custom widget. First you have to have the chosen picture on your site though.

Anybody else fancy doing this post screen shots of yours and maybe we can work on making it a more regular thing?

Your suggestion would be better posted at http://community.linuxmint.com/
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
