Share on Diaspora


This plugin adds a “Share on Diaspora” button at the bottom of your posts. Unlike other similar buttons,
this one is not tied to one single pod. Instead it allows the users to select their favorite pod from the list,
or type it directly. The button is highly customizable, allowing blog admins to set the color, size and shape in
accordance with the overall look and feel of their blogs.


There is an ongoing effort to translate the plugin into other languages.
So far, the following translations are available:

  • French — contributed by Stef20 from and Se7h
  • German — contributed by Georg Krause and JanRei
  • Indonesian — cotribuited by
  • Italian — contributed by Sandro kensan from
  • Japanese
  • Portuguese (Brazil) — contributed by Vostok
  • Romanian
  • Russian
  • Serbo-Croatian — contributed by Borisa Djuraskovic from
  • Spanish — contributed by Andrew Kurtis from and David Charte

get (or update) the list of all active pods, press the ‘Retrieve’ button. To
add a pod from the list, select it with up/down keys in the ‘Add a pod’ textbox
and press ‘Add’. To add a custom pod, type it in the textbox and press ‘Add’.
After you’ve added all pods that you want to see in the dialog, press ‘Update’.

Can I get the latest list of active pods?

Yes. You can manually retrieve a fresh list of active pods on the ‘Pod list
options’ tab of the settings panel. Press the ‘Retrive’ button to download the
