The reddit button Plugin for WordPress


Add a reditt button in your post.


  • Generate perfectly valid XHTML code
  • You can choose between different styles
  • Deactivating the plugin will not break your site!



  1. Download The reddit button Plugin.
  2. Upload ald-reddit-button.php to wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  3. Activate the Plugin in WP-Admin.
  4. Use the button in the quicktag toolbar to insert the code. You will be prompted to enter a style. Enter a number from 1 to 3. Any number above 3 will insert 1.
  5. If you are using the WYSIWYG, you will have to add the code manually or use the Code tab in WordPress 2.1. You can add <!--reddit_1--> or <!--reddit_2--> or <!--reddit_3--> where you want to display the button. For correct XHTML, make sure that the code is added on a new line.

The Function:



Add the following code to the style.css to your theme.

/* Reddit Button */
.redditbutton {
float: right;
margin: 10px;

This will cause the displayed reditt button to be floated to the right.

  1. The plugin installed fine on wp 2.0.2, but once I selected reddit_2, there is no button (when I viewed the source, it only said . Do I have to enter a key & value just like the digg plugin?

  2. Does <!--reddit_1--> and <!--reddit_3--> work fine?

    If you are using the WYSIWYG editor, then try to see if it looks like this.

    some more text


    still more text
    still even more text

  3. in wordpress 2.02, the button does not show up in the quicktags bar, nor does using

    work either. this may be that the regexp isnt matching. i think newer wordpress adds a linefeed after the reddit tag and the so the function never runs.

  4. I guess there is a problem with 2.0.2 which has been resolved.

    Can you give me a sample post, or the HTML code generated on your site.

    I think I may have a solution for it.

  5. I haven’t had a provision for this yet. I plan to update this plugin.

    Will make a function so that it can be placed in the loop.

    Thanks for the suggestion 🙂
