(using drupal.js included in Druapl 4.7). Bookmarklets are supported
for quickly submitting new story links. A number of RSS feeds are

This is not a point and click solution. This project provide the missing

Installation and configuration:
See INSTALL.txt contributed by Ron Williams.

Theme story links:
If you use a PHPTemplate theme you can theme story links nodes with a
"node-storylink.tpl.php" file.

An example "node-storylink.tpl.php" and "template.php" is included.
Place them in the folder of your theme. The examples are styled with the
css file "vote_up_down.css" in the vote_up_down module folder.

In "alternative" there are a "node-storylink.tpl.php" for use with the 
"Alternative +1 vote style" (digg style) voting widget.

The example include these functions:
* Make the title an external link to the submitted story.
* Inserts the voting widget directly for greater control.
* Inserts the domain of the submitted story url like "(via".
* Displays a small user picture above the voting widget.

OBS! When using "node-storylink.tpl.php" you must turn off
"Vote widget display..." in "admin/settings/vote_up_down" to avoid
getting double voting widgets.

Bookmarklet to submit story links:

Replace "" with your domain.

* INSTALL.txt contributed by Ron Williams.
  This has cut down on the support requst considerbly and
  has made the package much more accessible for users.

* jQuery verision of ajax_vote_up_down.js by Nedjo Rogers.
  The Drupal 5 version whould have taken a *lot* longer
  if I have had to do this myself.
