BrewPoll is a Digg-like site where users can submit homebrewing and craft beer news and other articles. Other users and visitors can vote on these stories, and the most popular ones bubble up to the front page.
BeerSmith, the proprietor of BrewPoll, created a button that bloggers and other site owners can add to their sites to make it easier for visitors to their sites/blogs to submit items to BrewPoll. His solution, however, requires adding code manually.
I’ve put together a WordPress plugin that will add the button to blog posts automatically. It has only been rudimentarily tested on WordPress 2.8.6, but it’s simple enough that it should work on any version from 2.0.0. (It’ll probably work on 1.5 as well.)
Use at your own risk.
- Upload ‘
brewpoll.php‘ to the ‘
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Have a beer
