    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: https://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

    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
