Another Lib Dem widget

Hat-tip to Will Howells for creating the second Lib Dem widget.

The rather fine ‘Lib Dem blogs’ plug in on the right hand side (of the front page).

Will’s still tweaking it, but let him know if you’d like to try the latest version.

For all the latest news on Lib Dem widgets, check out this blogs ‘widget’ category.

Postnote:

Will has now supplied me with the original code. If you already have widgets installed as part of your WordPress installation, you can try this widget out yourself. All you need to do to use it:

  1. Download the ldblogbox.php.txt file and save it or upload it into your widget plug-ins directory under the name ‘ldblogbox.php’
  2. Go into the ‘Plugins’ area of your WordPress installation and activate the ‘LibDemBlogs link box’ widget.
  3. Go into the ‘Sidebar Widgets’ section of the ‘Presentation’ area of WordPress, and drag your new ‘LibDemBlogs box’ widget to the desired location.
  4. Hit ‘Save Changes’

er… that’s it.

A Lib Dem widget

If you look on the top-right of the side bar on this blog’s home page, you may be able to see a sign-up box for the Lib Dem Supporters network. It’s more or less the same one that we’re using on Ming’s website.

That sign-up box is the world’s first Lib Dem WordPress Widget! 🙂

If you already have widgets installed as part of your WordPress installation, you can try this widget out yourself. All you need to do to use it:

  1. Download the ldsupporters.php.txt file and save it or upload it into your widget plug-ins directory under the name ‘ldsupporters.php’
  2. Go into the ‘Plugins’ area of your WordPress installation and activate the ‘Lib Dem supporters box’ widget.
  3. Go into the ‘Sidebar Widgets’ section of the ‘Presentation’ area of WordPress, and drag your new ‘e-supporters’ widget to the desired location.
  4. Hit ‘Save Changes’

er… that’s it.

If you don’t have widgets installed, head off to Automaticc’s Widgets project page and follow their extremely helpful instructions on how to install widgets and add them to your blog template.

Good luck. All suggestions for new widgets or improvements to this one (which is currently rather primitive) are much appreciated!
