Widgets for wp.com blogs: 13 – some games

http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/

Some users occasionally ask for games you can add to your blog. You can add any game if it’s flash, by turning the embed code into the right shortcode. So here are a few. Happy holidays!

• Paste shortcode into HTML post/page editor.
• May not display correctly in Explorer – use at your own risk (till Explorer learns to behave, or till users learn not to use Explorer).
• General background: The gigya shortcode 3 – widgets.

1. Chess

Shortcode:

[gigya src="http://www.widgetserver.com/syndication/flash/wrapper/InsertWidget.swf" width="510px" height="398px" quality="high" wmode="transparent" flashvars="r=2&appId=6e89ffe9-3977-4f6e-aa16-b8c081cf228b" ]

  2. Yeah, I guess they are many people’s old favorites!

    Wish you a happy new year.

  7. Happy new year Tess!

    I had prepared the post months ago, but was reluctant to publish it, so I thought Xmas was a convenient opportunity (or excuse).

    Now, if you love toys, can you tell me what use is a game in a blog?

  8. now, sometimes toys are just toys,
    no doubt a misquote of a misquote of freud… (?)
    Hey! who doesn’t like a gift: brilliant, clever, kind, and fun such as you posted as a St. Nick gift for X-mas eve for readers to “open” as a holiday surprise. ♥♥♥

    As for games having any reason for being in a blog, also consider what of real use is a blog.

    Beckett …insists that his life is “dull and without interest. The professors know more about it than I do.” He abhors the interest in his person and insists with intense sincerity that “nothing matters but the writing. There has been nothing else worthwhile.” …”I couldn’t have done it otherwise. Gone on, I mean. I could not have gone through the awful wretched mess of life without having left a stain upon the silence.”
    which I found on google/books but forgot the reference when I started to think about your question
    thinking…

    Toys are silly. Why would anyone like them? LOL!

  9. I mean, why wouldn’t everyone like them? Toys!

  12. Hi Panos.
    Are there more games too? If so then please tell me the code. And your digital clock is showing the time of my PC. I’ve the same clock on my blog and I was wondering if there any way of adjusting it to show the time of your zone automatically. BTW where d you live?

  13. Howdy. Why to wait for a week to have a reply?
