Need Giveaway Widget (something like Rafflecopter) please!

  1. I am so grateful for the beautiful template designs—in particular, mine—but I need one thing to make it the best it can be...a giveaway widget.
    I have seen that others would like this also. Is it not something that could be created? And with all the abilities of Rafflecopter's?
    Surely something could be done.
    Thank you,
    Tammy Snyder

    The blog I need help with is arkansasbookreviewer.com.

  2. You have posted 6 times on this. Please note nothing has changed. Rafflecopter as it's a JavaScript widget and Javascript is stripped out by our software to preserve security on this multiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ I am sorry but I don't know of any widgets that do what you want to do that we can use.

  3. 6? Hmm, well that shows how important it is. I didn't expect you to use someone elses. I thought someone smart enough to create a website template or whomever could create one. I won't bother you again. I'll just look for another site as it is important to me. My apologies.

  4. Maybe you can use a randomizer that you find online but there is no in-house widget like this here.

  5. I came here looking for this same information Tammy, thank you. There are quite a few people who would use what you are wanting, myself included! :-)

  6. How hard is it to pick a winner, really? If you're not comfortable doing that, perhaps you're not cut out for running contests? It's not as if there are not thousands of offline scripts that will do this.

    Raincoaster, you could direct that to every other widget that exists. I think a giveaway app would be a brilliant idea!

  8. AMEN. We need a giveaway app.

  9. Sure I can build it in 20 seconds email me on [email redacted], I have a blogger who does blog tours for us running on wordpress I'll test it. View http://wackywhatever.wordpress.com
    Comment in the comment section, but do you think people need this, really!???

    What part of there is no FTP access and there is no blogger installed plugin capability, and we cannot use JavaScript widgets or iframes on WordPress.com hosted you not aware of? Read this please for clarity http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  11. My thinking:- signup, enter your giveaway info. Add link to your page. Bam= giveaway widget. Is that ok?
