I'm trying to implement a "Bookmark" functionality on my article pagelayouts in SharePoint 2010.

I noticed that I like it and Tags & Notes are farm featueres, so they are visible on all the sites. I'm trying to use as much OOTB SharePoint as possible, so I was wondering if it is possible to insert them as SharePoint webcontrols or are they bound to a specific PlaceHolder in the masterpage?

I know "I Like it" and "Tags & Notes" is coming from a FEATURE called SocialRibbonControl

More information here:

You can check what commands are executed by looking at: SocialRibbonControl\SocialRibbonControl.xml file. The commands referred in this xml file are mostly in SP.UI.SocialRibbon.JS file in SharePointRoot\Layouts folder.

There are no web controls that I am aware of which you can directly place in your pages .

I've found out there is a delegate control which you can insert in the masterpage containing this functionality. I just now need to figure out how to manipulate it a bit. Thank you for your reply! Much appreciated. – Daniel Ziga Dec 13 '11 at 9:18
