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.

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.

  1. I like the idea of using this plugin but I am not too sure what to put in the $your_site_feed variable as I don’t know much about using feeds as yet, especially how feedburner works.

    What should I put in this variable for now until I know a bit more?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Anthony,

    Looking at your site, I would suggest using

    That will enable visitors to add your site’s main RSS feed to any of the various aggregator sites (such as Google Reader, Bloglines, etc.).

    Let me know if you need more info..

  3. Perishable. Thanks for your advice on what to put in the feed variable. I have now got a feedburner account so I can put that in.

    By the way, I like your site.

    Thank you for the kind words, Anthony — you are most welcome. Keep up the excellent work on your site. I am sure it will be a valuable resource for people in need.

  5. Hi, thanks a lot for this plugin, I have downloaded and installed in my website and it works great! I only have one question, I have put function call – drop menu – in the sidebar.php, but I would also like to be able to “move it” with my sidebar widget. Is that possible?!

  6. Thanks for sharing this nice plugin.

  7. Hi, is it possible to enter this code into the “text” of wordpress?

    For example, when in the presentation menu, on widget, and you create a text widget. Is it possible to put this code in the text widget? Thanks

    Thank you all for the feedback! It seems that there is quite a demand for a “widgetized” version of the AddMySite plugin. Of course, I will look into this as soon as time allows and attempt to integrate such functionality into the next AMS update. Stay tuned.. ;)

  9. hi ive tried to use it on my website but i couldnt managed!but i know its really a great widget! i ll try again this night hope it works! great job! thank you

    Interesting site you have there, super. I like the nifty JavaScript “to-do” list. Good luck with the plugin; I hope you figure it out. Let me know if I may be of any assistance.

  11. I am using Tiga theme, recently updated for WP 2.3. The ONLY way I have been able to add anything to any sidebar is via pasting code into a text widget. Perhaps there’s something missing from the code provided to implement in now? Whatta drag, cos this is an AWESOME plugin!

    I wanted to put it under the Subscribe button, above my Categories on the right sidebar, if you wanna check it out. I know you are busy, so I don’t expect anything. Thanks anyway!

    Alright, apparently I need to release a widgetized version of AddMySite. I am currently buried in work, but will take time out for it this next weekend. I will post an article and update the comments the very second a widgetized version of AMS is available. Promise ;)
