iBook widget - is it possible?

  1. Hi

    I'm going to publish an ebook on the Apple bookstore. I'd like to use Apple's widget creator to generate a widget - showing the book with brief background and link etc - for the sidebar on my blog. Is this possible?

    I've searched on here and only found two posts - from some time ago - one where the person was referred to the terms of service and another where no-one replied: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/ibook-widget?replies=1#post-1029734

    I can't work out why either should be a problem. Does anyone know how I can do it or, why it's not allowed?

    Many thanks

  2. We bloggers cannot post either iframe codes or JavaScript as the software will trip the codes out to preserver security on this mulituser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  3. Ok thanks for getting back to me timethief. I guess it's down to whether or when Apple will become a 'trusted partner' then...

    Unless anyone can suggest something better all I can think of in terms of a workaround is using a jpeg with a redirect to the book? Such a pity but I can only imagine how the politics go between the bigwigs

  4. Sorry I could not be more helpful.

  5. No probs, thanks for getting back to me, much appreciated :)
