Some of you are having trouble posting the My Reviews Widget Code in your blog.

Here's a quick tutorial for a popular blog site blogspot.com

After you've copied the code from PatternReview.com, go to your blog and click on the Customize Button on top right.




Click on Add a Page Element. You'll get this window:



Now, from this window, find the option for HTML/Javascript and click on it. It appears 4th from the top in the second column for me. Click on the Button "Add to Blog"



Paste the code here and save. The widget should appear in your blog.

And if you're like me and your new review doesn't show up on your widget and you don't know why....
"all you have to do is go to your widget and hit the refresh widget button and it'll recreate it. Also remember to do a shift+refresh on your blog to make sure that you are not looking at an old cached version."

Thank you so much- the refresh solved my problem with color!

Sorry if the question has been asked before but is the code supported by other blog sites, such as Wordpress? I've been trying to add the widget to my WP blog and it doesn't work...

Marie,

It should work. The tutorial is just for blogspot though. Let me see if I can sign up a test account in wordpress and try it.

Thanks! It doesn't seem to be accepting the code. Here's what I do (using the same procedure as any other widget): I add a 'Text' widget and in the box I just copy and paste the code. Then I save everything. The Text widget is added, but with nothing in it. Whenever I go back to my dashboard to edit the widget, the widget's content is empty...

Ok- got the widget working fine except none of my reviews are showing! How do I fix that? I have it set to show 4 reviews. My reviews are older (I am behind in my reviewing!) but it should show the last 4 I did right?

Thanks!

I figured it out! I am not a Friends of PR member yet (my income keeps going DOWN while everything else goes up!) but hope to at some point in the future. :)

I think this feature is available only to FofPR members (I looked at the widget code to figure that out) :)

No, I think it's available to free and paying members.

What I think the problem is is that your reviews are all old enough that they predate the Review Gallery, which means none of them have Gallery thumbnails. Try editing one or two of the latest dated reviews to add a thumbnail and see if they then show up in the widget on your blog page.
