I love detective work, figuring out how things work. Here is a quick sample.
Rey Bango (proud new papa) posted about a plugin called ShareThis. The reason he posted it was because they are using jQuery on their website. So I click around and see that it has a WordPress Plugin. Easy to install, (click below, it’s cool) and easy to manage. So, of course, I look at the source. Turns out that ShareThis uses MooTools as it’s base to build the feature.
Interesting that they choose jQuery for the site and MooTools for the script itself.
Anyway, I like the plugin. Although it doesn’t happen that often, I like to think that people COULD share a post if they wanted.
