Backlinks etc: links to Delicious bookmarks of your posts

I'd previously posted on how to edit your template to provide a one-click link to see who's bookmarked your post on Delicious , and also posted separately on how to combine Google backlinks with Technorati's Cosmos, Icerocket's Link Tracker, and other searches for your particular post on Blogpulse and Bloglines, so that someone reading your blog can click to see who's linked to your post or commented on it.

I decide it made sense to combine the two, so I've amended my backlinks etc post to add the code for Delicious which you can add to your template. The link to display who's bookmarked your post on Delicious is now added to the list of backlinks etc at the end of each individual post. You can see it in action if you scroll to the end of that post or indeed the Delicious post, and click on the Delicious link (not this one as no one will have linked to it yet!). I also made some small changes to the code to shorten the displayed text.

If you're already using the code and don't want to copy/paste the code over again wholesale, to add the Delicious link just add this line of code to the item page/post page code, I put it just under the Bloglines code:
<a title="Who's bookmarked this post on Delicious?" href="<$BlogItemPermalinkURL$>">Delicious</a>
