Seen that Digg Bar on Digg website. Well I have been trying or rather say thinking of adding a bar of that sort on this Blog. But I have not been able to get what I really need actually. All of these bars give you certain good functionality but they all have their own pros and cons. I am not going to go into too much of depth for each one of them. I will leave that part for you to decide which one to use. For me none of them worked. I think I would have to develop one of my own plugin. I have been thinking of getting rid of these social bookmarking icons for the first and then think about adding some more features of the plug-ins listed below.
Here is the list of Plug-ins that I could find on the web.
- The WordPress Bar
- WP-Super Bar
- WP External Links Bar
- Wibiya Bar
- Meebo Bar
- Quick Navigation Panel
- Hello Bar
- Attention Bar
- Easy Heads Up Bar
- Notification Toolbar
- Quick Notice Bar
- FooBar (Premium)
- Attention Grabber (Premium)
- WP Top Bar
- Social Toolbar
Do let me know about any other plugin which serves the same purpose, if you stumple upon one.
Update 1 : Found more; Apture and Quick Navigation panel. Added to the list.
Update 2 : Added Hello Bar in the list on 11 May 2011. I removed the images so that you go and check out and each and every plugin and decide what suits best for you
Update 3 : Added Viperbar which lets bloggers have an email subscription form in the bar. It supports feedburner, awber and many more services.
Update 4 : Found another great post and added some more paid and free header footer bar plugins.
Update 5 : Thanks for the comment DD. I have added another Toolbar, Social Toolbar.
