Here's the code to post the $500k donation widget on your blog and/or website.


<object id="W46f93c931682e638" width="659" height="294" quality="high" data="http://widgets.clearspring.com/o/46f9387a5f7344cb/46f93c931682e638" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="movie" value="http://widgets.clearspring.com/o/46f9387a5f7344cb/46f93c931682e638" /><param name="scaleMode" value="showAll" /><param name="allowNetworking" value="all" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="flashvars" value="" /></object>

Here's the code for adding the widget to Myspace


<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal" height="294px" width="500px" id="quarter3-flash" data="http://www.ronpaul2008.com/features/quarter3/quarter3.swf">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never" />
<param name="allowNetworking" value="internal" />
<param name="movie" value="http://www.ronpaul2008.com/features/quarter3/quarter3.swf" />
</object>

And here's the Facebook app

You can also scale it down using the width and height parameters in the code. Change the width=659 to width=300 and it scales down uniformly very nicely.

I posted this widget here. (http://ancapistan.typepad.com/unfairwitness/2007/09/spam-ron-paul-1.html) If you click on the little tab at the bottom that says get & share, you can get code for facebook, myspace, typepad, etc....

Nice! Change the width=659 to width=300 and it will probably fit better!

Sticky? HQ did make this POST......:)

Thanks. I copied the link it gave me for Facebook and posted it in the section of my group page for posted items and all that showed up was the blue hypertext. Where can I post it and make the whole widget show up?

Why does the countdown on the HQ page end at 2:00p.m. on Sunday, rather than Midnight? Wow... that was weird. First it was 5 days, 0 seconds. Now it is 5 days, 7 hours 55 minutes. That still isn't making it end at midnight.

Jeff, about the widget -

It seems to make a database call to get the latest total as of a certain time. Sometimes I think the script times out or something, and you get a default database value which is, somewhat unfortunately, "As of Blah Blah". Literally the words "blah blah". I think this might be placeholder code someone forgot to take out.

Not to clutter up the thread with a re-post, but seriously, I can't get it to show up on Facebook, even using that Facebook option from Texmac's link. How do you do it?

Hum, I have put it in my blog, it has appeared the first time, but now I can't see it when I refresh. I suppose it's just a problem of my computer, but if anyone could confirm... it's the first entry.

It's working. I went to your site and saw it. It's scaled down, but still legible.

Tonight I will work on getting this to some blogs - lets' not duplicate so let me know! - How long do you think it will take before the MAJOR blogs replace their current donation buttone witht the widget?

The beautiful widget, she is broken.

It no longer shows the total after the mercury scrolls up.

It looks like maybe someone tried to extend the thermometer up past $500k and broke the poor, innocent widget.

here is the myspace fix:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal" height="294px" width="500px" id="quarter3-flash" data="http://www.ronpaul2008.com/features/quarter3/quarter3.swf">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never" />
<param name="allowNetworking" value="internal" />
<param name="movie" value="http://www.ronpaul2008.com/features/quarter3/quarter3.swf" />
</object>

I got it working on:

# llegal tag: object

Any suggestions

Don't stop now. The campaign has upped it to $1,000,000 since we reached the goal so easy.
