  • Thanks, I’ll have to look into this. Not that the hyperlinked picture of my book cover isn’t snazzy and all… 😉

  • Inserting the copied code into an email signature in Yahoo Mail just creates a hyperlink, not a widget. Do you need to use an embed code or something to turn it into a widget?

  • This was so awesome!

    I was very excited when I read the information about the ‘look inside widget’ BUT the link doesn’t work.Any suggestions? Thanks

      This post is more than two years old and the site seems to have closed down. I’ll remove that link. If I were you, I would choose to use one of the other links in that post to make a widget.
