Sphere It Plug-in for WordPress.org Bloggers

Filed under: Sphere Blog Partners,Sphere Contextual Widget,WordPress — sphere @ 2:59 am

We recently released a plug-in for WordPress Self Hosted blogs. If you’re interested to add Sphere It to your WordPress Self Hosted blog, just download this file from the WordPress Plug-in Directory by clicking here. Then log-in to your blog’s admin panel, go to the Plug-ins tab and activate the Sphere It Contextual Widget. That’s really it.

A read-me is also included. You’ll find it super-easy to implement. A small sample of comments include:

  • “I must say it’s a wonderful piece of widget!”
  • “It’s working like a charm.”
  • “Thanks very much for the Sphere wordpress plug-in, incredibly simple to implement. Truly a great product you guys have made and I am very glad to have it.”
  • “I really think that it’s a great tool to sort out relevant news among myriads of post out there.”
  • “The installation was as easy as it could get”
  • “The Sphere It widget rocks. Not only do my readers get more context, but the changing results are an awesome update for me about things I’m interested in writing about.”

We’d love to get your feedback and we’re looking forward to seeing the widget on your blog. Please let us know if you put it on your site or if you have any questions or issues in getting the plug-in to work. Also, please note the plug-in works well on posts that are about topics that are being actively discussed in the blogosphere.

  3. This will go down as and become one of the “GREATS”. Thanks for the WordPress code! This works fantastic!

    I have a non-“auto” version working on my site. I have it coded into the loop.php and the single.php. Feel free to look at it. Again, thanks!

  5. […] Sphere It by Sphere This plugin adds those “related articles” links to the bottom of each post. A lot of plugins and services have tried to emulate the sexyness, but this is by far the best implementation I’ve seen.

  16. Have installed it on my blog and it works fine EXCEPT for when I mouseover the link, the text color changes to white like it should, but the background stays the same instead of changing to green.

    Is this a plugin issue or a theme issue and what do I need to do to fix it?

    Using wp2.3.1 and rockinsuckerfish theme.

    ALSO, I’d like the link to appear on the same line as the bookmark ‘addthis’ widget instead of taking up an additional line if that is possible. But that isn’t as pressing an issue to me as the background color being off.

    It is installed on my blog which is here:

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  17. Nevermind! I mean, the problem I had with the way the link appeared when I mouseover it is a theme problem, in this case the rockinsuckerfish theme, and not a sphere issue.

    I tried the default wp theme and the shpere link looks just fine. I also notice the tags listed in the footer that were not there under the rock’n theme. But that’s another issue not related to sphere.

    Thanks for your emails on the subject in your support. Keep up the good work.
