AddMySite Plugin for WordPress

[ AddMySite ] The AddMySite (AMS) plugin for WordPress makes it easy for your visitors to add your site and feed to all of their favorite social-bookmarking services. Share instantly with awesome sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, and Twitter. With a few clicks, users can quickly bookmark or add your site to over 20 popular social bookmarking services. It’s like a dream come true for simple social-media sharing. Simple, fast, and easy :)

Update: Project Completion

It’s been a great run! With over 9,000 downloads and 15 plugin updates, the AddMySite project was educational, rewarding, and hopefully useful. But all earthly things must come to an end, so I will be discontinuing support and development of AddMySite as of March 3rd, 2018. The final version of the plugin will remain available for reference purposes.


  1. Upload plugin to plugins directory and activate.
  2. Visit Appearance > Widgets to enable and customize the AMS widget.
  3. Enjoy! ;)


Here are a couple of screenshots of AddMySite:


Note: this is the final version of the plugin. Updates and support are discontinued as of March 3rd, 2018.

    Just wanted to say Thank You for the lengthy reply.
    I believe it’s all clear now.

    I believe I’ve done what I’m supposed to, i.e. edited the variables and then uploaded the plugin but when I went to activate it I got thise error:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, expecting T_VARIABLE or ‘$’ in /home/soholif/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/AddMySite.php on line 110

    What have I done wrong?

    The specified parse error indicates missing characters and/or incorrect syntax. My advice? Uninstall the file, download a fresh copy, and try again. Be very careful when editing the variables — PHP is hyper-sensitive when it comes to proper syntax.

  4. Awesome plugin. Thanks much.

    I was curious how easy would it be to convert this script to work on my gaming site?

    Is it safe to assume that your gaming site is a non-WordPress site?

    I would really like to try out this plugin but whenever I try to download it I get this…

    I’m using Safari on my iMac G4 running OS 10.4.9. Something I’m doing wrong?

    Now I’m having quite the time simply viewing your site, so sorry about the double post.

    I am completely baffled by the error message — never seen or heard of it before.. unfortunately, i am unable to spend any time investigating until early next week. in the meantime, I have taken the liberty of sending you the zipped copy of AddMySite via email. Thank you for taking the time to share this information.

    I like the concept, but from my tests it appears that I can only add my site (as the name would imply) and not my post, correct? If not, then how can I have visitors add a particular post to whatever community they wanted?

    There are many options for sharing posts with the various bookmarking services. I would recommend Alex King’s Share This plugin. There is also the excellent service, which does all the dirty work for you! As soon as I find the extra time, I plan to add "individual-post-adding" functionality to the AddMySite plugin, along with several other nifty improvements. Cheers!

  12. I think I’ve read something simillar a few days ago. I don’t remember where, might have been on or slashdot.
