    Using AddThis within a widget works quite well, look at this example for a combination of AddThis with Twitter and your Facebook page icons

    Thanks for this article – you included some plugins I hadn’t heard of before, including CevherShare, which I’ve seen people using but didn’t know what plugin was behind it.

    Another one I like that is popular is SexyBookmarks, which puts in a slick-looking row of social icons that bob up when you hover over them. (The name makes it sound lurid, but it’s not.)

    BTW, you imply in your article that plugins and widgets are interchangeable terms, and I don’t want people to get confused about that. All widgets are plugins (or parts of plugins), but not all plugins are widgets. In fact, most plugins aren’t widgets. Widgets are just the things that can be inserted into certain areas (‘widget zones”) on the site, via the Widgets panel. Only some of the plugins above are that type. Just wanted to clear that up for the readers.

    Thanks again for the post, all these plugins look great!

    Apologize for the noob question. Could you tell me what this site skin is? I truly love it. Or is it customized one, maybe? I think it can be a good solution for adsense as well. I’d really appreciate it if you can let me know about it. Thanks.

    1. Ayaz Malik June 4, 2011 at 7:11 pm

      Hiiz, its a custom made skin 🙂
