Does wordpress.com offer a sidebar widget to install this component? If so, can someone point me to a tutorial on how to install? Thanks! -Jay The blog I need help with is octopiwwc.wordpress.com.

Then, to insert it, you use a Gigya shortcode in a text widget: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/gigya-shortcode-3-widgets/ This being said, make sure that whatever you are adding complies with WordPress.com’s advertising policy: http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/ If you have any doubt whether it’s okay to insert that on your blog, contact staff on Monday: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ April 11, 2011 at 2:29 am #597363 octopiwwcMember I see, And if i upgraded to a self hosted wordpress site, would i still have to host the flash file somewhere else and follow the directions above? (thanks for the prompt response btw!)
