  2. Unfortunately, Box.net had ended supporting the original format for WordPress.com blogs a while ago.

    However, they informed us that the "Advanced" version of the widget will work. Please update your code if you previously installed the Box.net sidebar widget.

  3. How does one "update your code"?
    I deleted my Box.net flask player widget and re-installed and I still get that pesky extraneous code tacked on every time I save the html code I copy from box.net per the instructions.

  4. Darrell, don't use the embed code given on the WordPress.com box.net sign up page.

    After you've signed in to box.net, go into the folder where you've uploaded your songs and click on the "embed folder in your site" link in the right sidebar. Then copy the embed code from the "folder widget" window that opens and paste that into the WordPress.com widget. You can also customize the width/height of the box.net widget there.

    The downside to having to use this "advanced" widget is that there's no more color customization. The upside is that once you've embedded your widget, you can log into the widget to either allow or disallow mp3 downloads.

  5. Well, that solves the extraneous link problem. I cannot get the new widget to display in "list" format. The related selection code seems to disappear when I save. I think I liked the old flash player better.

  6. Sign into the widget on your blog and you can change the display setting there if you didn't set it up that way on box.net.

    As long as you don't mind the extraneous code, you can keep using the old widget. It's not exactly like they're giving us a choice. Just saying...
