A Blog Around The Clock

Cool new Scienceblogs.com widgets

Having difficulties following the flood of blogging here on scienceblogs.com? Well, it just became much easier. Go to this page and find the widgets with all sorts of feeds: the Select feed, the Channels feeds and all the individual blog feeds. So, if you want my feed, you click on the Blogs (A-C) tab, find my blog, click on ‘Share’, click on the ‘Install outside Netvibes’ tab, then choose where you want to download it. Then pick the way you want it to look (there is a pull-down menu with several choices, as well as several colors to choose from), copy the widget code and paste it into your site (or iGoogle etc.) and you’ll get something like this:

or something like this:

Then just click through if you want to read any individual post.

    What do we need to give permission to in noscript? There’s 14 trying to run on this page :p

    Sorry that was a pretty impressive pair of half sentences 🙁

    Many of your firefox users probably use an addon called noscript. It keeps websites from running amuk: you have to give them permission to run javascripts.

    For example, on your particular blog, 14 things are trying to run. I’ve given permission to scienceblogs.com, amazon.com and donorschoose.org to run. Things like researchblogging, quantserver, clocklink and googleanalytics are not given permission. There’s no real reason for me not to approve most of the stuff here, I’m just lazy.

    But on some websites it keeps some of their aggravating ads and javascript things from irritating the daylights out of me. So until I approved netvibes.com, I just had two small blank spaces instead of the two widgets that you’re showing.

    Oh I see. Tech-speak, but now clearer. Sure, block/allow whatever you choose. Some of it I control, some Seed does. DonorsChoose will go off soon as the challenge is over. ResearchBlogging.org is useful. I hope people check friendfeed. GA is out of my control. And netvibes is needed only for this one post I guess.
