DIGG BUTTON FOR YOUR BLOG
digg_url = 'WEBSITE_URL';
digg_bgcolor = '#ff9900';
digg_skin = 'compact';
The digg_bgcolor option can take any valid CSS color and is used only to change the background color around the outer edge of the button. If omitted, the default color is white. The digg_skin option controls the look at the button. If omitted the button defaults to a standard digg button (much like the one you see on Digg itself). If specified as 'compact', then a smaller horizontal visual design is used that will fit better into a list of links.
