Share This like bookmarking Widget for Blogger

As I had written in my previous post that AddThis social bookmarking tool is best choice for blogs at blogger.com. The disadvantage is that we have to give an extra click for each time we bookmark a certain post using it. I had written in my previous post about social bookmarking widget for blogger. It was a big hit, but some of the bloggers want clean interface which that hack lacks to provide. It clutters the interface with lot of small icons. So here is a solution for the problem.
As you may have seen on most Wordpress blogs, there is a Share link, which once clicked gives a drop down menu with links to the most popular Social bookmarking Websites. For us Bloggers at
blogger.com, addthis has come up with a similar but faster tool. If you still don’t what I’m speaking about, see the live demo of the Wordpress’s Shrare link here (click on the share link to see) and bloggers AddThis Link here (Hover the mouse over bookmark link to see).

AddThis for blogger

To have the same AddThis bookmark on you blog, first you have to decide where to place the button. The code for the button is

<!-- AddThis Bookmark Button BEGIN -->
<script type="text/javascript">
addthis_url = location.href;
addthis_title = document.title;
addthis_pub = 'Your AddThis ID here';
</script><script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/addthis_widget.php?v=12" ></script>
<!-- AddThis Bookmark Button END -->

If you want to put the code at the end of every post, put the above code after the below code

<p><data:post.body/></p>

If you want it the same place as on this blog, add the code after the below code

<p><data:post.title/></p>
Save you template and View your Blog.

Using Latitude and Longitude with Google Maps

Whether you want to quickly add a waypoint to your GPS, or view a map of a known location, it can often be convenient to use real latitude and longitude values with Google Maps instead of dealing with street addresses.



Rerieving a map for a lat/lon value is simple enough with Google Maps. You can simply enter the decimal latitude and longitude into the search form instead of a street address.However, if you're viewing a map and you want to retrieve the lat/lon location, there unfortunately isn't a convenient "get latitude and longitude" button. Google Maps deals with latitude and longitude locations internally, though, so with this little snippet of javascript, you can easily get the job done: javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()) This will return the coordinates of the map's center point. You might want to double-click a position on the map before running the above code. Doing so will reposition that point to the center of the map …
