adding a badge
Hi…I’m trying to add a badge and I can’t seem to do it. I pull the text widget to my sidebar and entered my code: but nothing comes up on my blog except a little tiny line that says visit book blogs. HELP :(
<embed wmode=”opaque” src=”http://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/index/swf/badge.swf?xn_version=124632088″ FlashVars=”backgroundColor=0xEDE9D8&textColor=0x593022&config=http%3A%2F%2Fbookblogs.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fbadge%2FshowPlayerConfig%3Fxg_source%3Dbadge%26size%3Dmedium%26username%3D0ava56uy8ohpx” width=”206″ height=”174″ bgColor=”#EDE9D8″ scale=”noscale” allowScriptAccess=”always” allowFullScreen=”true” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer”> </embed>
<small>Visit Book Blogs</small>
The blog I need help with is cristinasbookreviews.wordpress.com.
I’m trying to add a badge
The code you listed above is Flash based which is not permitted here, therefore it’s stripped out and nullified.
The badge is for a site called Book Blog. I’ve seen other WP have it maybe it’s just mine?? Ugh…but thank you! :)
The other blogs may have been using the advice in this article:
Hi 1tess. I appreciate the link but it’s sooo confusing and I spend more time trying to figuring it out than actually accomplishing anything.
Thanks again! :)
Figuring out the gigya shortocode workaround is your only option.
What I meant to say is that the use of some codes here is restricted > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ If you cannot figure out how to use the gigya shortcode, then you can capture an image of the badge http://bookblogs.ning.com/main/embeddable/list and link it to the site and display it in a text widget. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/
I’m staying positive and I will give it a try. :)
I officially give up. UGH…
PS: what is the difference between WP.com and WP.org?
Gigya shortcode: just turn this

[gigya wmode="opaque" src="ETC ETC ETC" ]
I was hoping you would see this thread and chime in. :)
Wait…am i cutting and pasting the 2nd one into the text widget??
I just create blog posts — that I don’t use — that contain the image centered in just the right size for my side column. I’m guessing yours is around 175 pixels. Then I select the image and give it link attributes. Then instead of posting it as a blog post, I copy the text code into a text widget and put it in position.
You just need to capture the image and resize it. And then copy the link of the home page of the site you’re linking to.
justpi told you how to convert the Flash code you have now to a gigya shortcode https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/adding-a-badge-2?replies=14#post-1039438
