  1. boing!!!??? RRXPuRR#%&*(ºª¶©

    IMNSHO, this set of gigya shortcode is completely unsuitable for a food or cooking blog (or any other blog…):
    mostly bordering too close to tasteless.
    or the sixth grade class my husband has been substitute teaching for…
    Sorry, but yuck…
    LOL: go ahead, call me a snob!

  2. Hehe… I wouldn’t put such stuff (or most of the other widgets I’ve given) in a blog of mine. But some users might like them – in a humorous blog they might be ok.

  3. Your blog is about showing what is possible in wordpress.com, not necessarily about what is agreeable. That’s what I think!!

    And btw, send me 20 dollars first. I need it it to give you 10 dollars for more information! (The extra 10 dollars is for something I haven’t figured out yet!) :D

  6. @NG: Yes, “agreeable” is subjective, and I’m not the arbiter of that!

    @Tess: Oh but I do pay attention, and I don’t think this is one of my good posts, and I almost agree with your comment. My only objection is that the way you put it you insult the users that might like these widgets.

  7. indeed. I do truly apologize to anyone who was offended by my comment.
    indeed: the code in this post works.

    As Cool Quotes above says,”…

    Have you ever found a flash widget which would allow a text box to change, either randomly or in a few minutes plus with the user’s input? Not scrolling text, but displaying a message, then another, etc?

    Oh, and would it be too much to ask that these text boxes flash widgets would also link to posts.

  8. No, I haven’t been able to find such a widget: probably can’t be done without javascript. But the chief inspector in charge of unearthing strange gems is sanjida, not me, so maybe she can tell us.
