Add Mixx to the WordPress Sociable 2.0 Plugin

November 29th, 2007


You can add a Mixx icon to your WordPress Sociable plugin in less than 5 minutes.? I will provide both manual edits and modified files.? Either way it should be a very simple modification for anyone. Check out an interview with the founder of Mixx: Chris McGill, for the latest buzz on this new social network.

I assume you already have the latest version of Sociable installed, but if you don’t then you can download it from here.? Once, you have it installed you can move on to the next step.
