At least I persuaded them to get rid of del.icio.us, which is truly dead. But Digg and MySpace still have a community of users.
Laza and I would both like to see widgets eliminated completely (I intentionally disable them in my skins). For a page designer, having this extraneous content popping up at the bottom of the page is unwelcome. The visit counter is too inaccurate to be useful. The about widget is duplicative - most skins provide a way to create a fully-styled "about" or "info" page for the album. The share widget is also duplicative - my skins don't have any social media support, but Laza's all do, and you can choose which media to include (including Pinterest). The commenting widget is marginally useful, unless spammers discover your site, at which point you'll have to shut it off.
I tried the Share button included with the Tiger skin, and for Facebook it said it was an invalid app and needing to get a Facebook ID. I don't want that. I just want someone to be able to post a link back to their page if they feel like it.
So..the widget worked, which is why I used it.
Thanks for the replies. At least I now know not to try and change it, since it can't be done.
