I recently started a blog and I'm in the process of personalizing it. Since I'm using Wordpress, I can't use the review widget. Instead, I'd love to add an official PR image as a badge on one of my sidebars. I've looked around...are there any official blog badges or images I can use?

Thanks!

I'm in the same boat. Did you find an answer? I don't know how to insert the badges here into a Wordpress blog. Are there instructions somewhere?

Me too. I wonder if anyone has found a workround.

I've just tried this but don't know if it is acceptable or not, so will pm Deepika.

I used the capture tool to grab the little vintage competition widget image and put it on my computer, then uploaded it on to flickr, then did a right click, copy image URL and using Widget image in wordpress uploaded it. It appeared in the sidebar of my blog but of course its not active.

This is just a trial run and I'll probably take it out anyway later as the contest in question has finished, but I wanted to see if it was doable.

Regarding the blog badge. It should work the way it is on wordpress. Add it as html on the sidebar. I too have a wordpress blog and it worked for me.

The my reviews widget is javascript which is not acceptable by wordpress. We currently don't have an alternative for that but we are working on it.

Thanks for clarifying that Deepika. I'll try again. (I wonder why wordpress don't allow the javascript version?)
