Tools menu - showing Widgets

Widgets enable you to embed guide links anywhere on the web, thereby increasing the visibility (and usefulness) of your guides.

They are awesome advertisements for your system and they're only 10KB! This means they will load lighting-fast wherever you place them.

Once you've created one, it'll be saved on your Widgets page so you can modify it or grab the embed code whenever you need it!

Widget Features:

Small: 190 x 270      Wide: 400 x 370      Large: 500 x 200

Catalog Search

Optional. The search info comes from the search URLs you define in your System Settings. It will use the URL of the first search option, so make sure your catalog is listed first if you want to use this feature.

Not including the search saves you 30px of real estate!

Recent/Popular Guides

Optional. Includes links at the top of your widget for "New" and "Popular" guides.

Background Color

Widget background color is fully customizable!

Choose from one of the options on the screen or enter any hex color value you want.

Guide Display Options

Choose to display all of your published guides, a random published guide in your system, all published guides that have certain tags, or manually select your list o' guides.

* Our widgets are created using Flash, so there is no way to modify anything about them using CSS or anything else. Sorry!
