Blinkx .com Video wall widget

April 18th, 2007

Blinkx search: Widgets

This is a Blinkx video wall widget.
It displays video thumbnails based on a keyword search. You can place it anywhere…even MySpace (until Blinkx gets blocked)

The default size widget is really to big for anything other than putting it into a post. (unless you have 640px wide side bars) I had to edit the code a bit to make it fit better. I have reduced the width to 300px to make things more manageable.

The video wall is viral. It lets you grab the embed code right from the widget and you even get to choose the layout size right there. The widget also contains a link to Blinkx to get your own widget created from your search results.

Comments and Ratings widgets from

April 17th, 2007


I am trying out the new JS-Kit ratings and comments widget.

I will need your help to try it out…Please leave comments and replies to comments (yes you can reply to specific comments)
…Also, please feel free to try out the rating widget as well.

(They can be separated with text if you desire.)

(as you leave comments you can be notified of replies via email)

There are actually two widgets in one. You can use one or the other or both. They are very simple to use and there is no registration required.

Check out the many customization options. Including custom CSS and different input fields.

Simple website counter/tracking widget

April 11th, 2007

Here is a simple, no frills, easy to use website counter widget. Just copy and paste…thats it.

Where can I get it?Where can I use it?

You can use this anywhere you can edit template code…even on MySpace! (until they block displaying images and linking to other sites.)

Does it do anything else?
The widget also acts as a link to the bpopular stats page for your site. Here you will find site stats for at least the last Six days displayed in a simple bar graph. You will also see the 20 most popular pages on your site. Stats are public!

Ok…How much does it cost?
Come on…it’s FREE! and you don’t even have to register…not even an email address!

But I don’t want the stats displayed right on my blog.
You don’t have to. There are four size options…regular, small, very small and invisible.

Sudoku web widget

April 10th, 2007

Here you go Sudoku fans…a new Sudoku puzzle everyday for your blog. (Uses Iframe…sorry MySpace users)
Don’t you just love number puzzles? I can remember saying “boy… I wish I had more number puzzles!” right after Math class even.

Where can I get it?
There is no registration needed! But I’m sure they wouldn’t mind a dollar donation…at least to help pay for the server. If you don’t like to donate…buy a mug or t-shirt.

Are there options?
Of course there are…any good widget has options.
The “Sudoku of the day” widget comes in two sizes. Regular at 260px wide and mini at 150px wide. I like the 150px option because most sidebars are 150px or wider.

What about colors?
There are no point and click color options. To change you will need to edit the code and replace “Aliceblue” with a color of your choice. Don’t worry or fret here…they give you easy to follow instructions and a large color list to browse.
