To copy this widget to your wiki, cut and paste the entire source of the AddThis widget code page into a page called Widget:AddThis on your wiki.

If you don't have the Widget extension set up on your wiki, go to its description page on and follow the installation instructions.

This widget allows you to add the AddThis social-bookmarking button to your wiki page.

To insert this widget, use the following code:

|brand=My Wiki
|options=favorites, email, digg, delicious, more

If you want to use fixed value for account_id on your site or even fix the styles and the widget to share only current page, you can create a template called something like Template:AddThisWidget and tell users to call {{AddThisWidget}} instead of the {{#widget}} parser function.

You can read more about these options on the AddThis documentation page.

Sample result

An account id is required for this widget to show a sample result.
