Build a classic MyBlogLog widget

In this post I will show you how I created my custom widget showcasing mybloglog readers.

In your function.php file add this simple line of code:

<?php
// MyBlogLog
function MyBlogLogWidget()
{
?>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://pub.mybloglog.com/comm2.php?mblID=ReplaceWithYourID&amp;c_width=220&amp;c_sn_opt=n&amp;c_rows=6&amp;c_img_size=h&amp;c_heading_text=&amp;c_color_heading_bg=e0e0d4&amp;c_color_heading=E8A02C&amp;c_color_link_bg=e0e0d4&amp;c_color_link=d54e21&amp;c&amp;c_color_bottom_bg=e0e0d4"></script>
<?php } 

//register the sidebar 'the widget name', 'the widget function'//
register_sidebar_widget('MyBlogLog Widget', 'MyBlogLogWidget');

?>

That’s it, just replace the “ReplaceWithYourID” with your mybloglog ID. You can also change the width at c_width=220 to what ever you like.

If you look closely at the code you may also see color codes, you may change them to corresponding hex codes, for example: c_color_bottom_bg=e0e0d4 is the color for the bottom background. e0e0d4 is a light gray, we can change it to ffffff and make it white.

That’s it, enjoy!

    Hey Danny,
    Make sure this is pasted into your functions.php and then you should see a ‘widget’ in your widgets area..

    Austin,

    This disadvantage of placing widgets in the functions.php file is (I think) they get clobbered on an update of WordPress.

    Again you could use Widgetifyr.com to easily create a stand alone widget.

    Thanks
    Glenn
