After all, why should all the other blog engines have all the fun?
But I'm getting ahead of myself. The DiggBar is a new feature that adds lots of great features to pages and sites linked on Digg. And to do so, it shortens the URL (to one starting with http://digg.com/) and loads the target in a frame.
In a frame?! I thought we were done with frames half a decade ago.
There are myriad reasons why this is a bad thing, and not all of them involve Digg stealing revenue, and other sites have covered it better, but in short, it's a bad thing.
So, how can you avoid it framing your Habari site?
Unzip that in your /user/plugins/ directory, and activate it in your admin plugins page.
By default, it will provide a brief message ("This site does not support use of the DiggBar.") and a link to the correct page with your URL on it. I also added an option to bypass the nice message, and just reload the target outside of the bar.
If you have questions, comments, suggestions, please leave them below or submit a ticket on the Habari-extras Trac.
