      Hi dtr

      They are a new addition to the forums, I should have really done a post in the website news, but tbh I forgot

      What does it do?
      This small template modification adds a button to Clesto, Digg and others, when clicked it will take you to the submission pages on the chosen site,

      and it will automatically have the URL loaded on the submission form.

      A great way to boost your traffic.
      hope that helps

      I would like to say it does but I don't understand what those sites are and what they have to do with these forums.

      www.digg.com is a site like www.slashdot.org

      They are like technological sites for members to talk and pass views on etc.

      If a story / site is dug or /dotted it is normally brought to its knees as the traffic amount is huge from loads of people trying to read that particular story.

      It is also a good way of getting any story out to a large number of people.

      Hope that helps Alan.
