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:

// MyBlogLog
function MyBlogLogWidget()
<script type="text/javascript" src=";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..

    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 to easily create a stand alone widget.

Add a shortcode



This is a simple one.

 * Your Blog title
function my_blog_title() {
	$blogname = get_bloginfo('name');
    return '<span class="blog-title">' . $blogname . '</span>';
add_shortcode('blog-title', 'my_blog_title');

Just add this to your functions.php file and then add [blog-title] in any post or page and it will return your Blog Title. :)

Tips & Tricks

Adding a external file after the first post



How might you display a Google ad after the first post or anything you like? It is very simple. You just need to add the variable $loopcounter in the Loop. If the $loopcounter is less than or equal to 1, then include your option. Check out the code:

<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $loopcounter++; ?>

  // your loop

  <?php if ($loopcounter <= 1) { include (STYLESHEETPATH . '/you-file.php'); } ?>

<?php endwhile; ?>

<?php else : ?>

<?php endif; ?>

Pretty simple huh. Well in the $loopcounter line, you may change the include to point to any file or maybe a custom widget like so:

<?php if ($loopcounter <= 1) { dynamic_sidebar( 'Plus Post' ); } ?>

Or use your code directly in between the { & }.
