Next click on "Promoting Materials" on the light blue top band just under the tabs.
Click on the "Website Widget" tab in the page content.

Setting up and testing Your "APSense Widget".

The options for your "APSense Widget" are:
Profile Photo
Options are - On or Off
You have the choice of whether to display your uploaded profile photo or not by selecting On or Off. On meaning yes show Photo.

Blog Option
Options are - Off, All Blogs, My Blogs
Off - Do not show any Blog links.

Widget Type.
Options - Rectangular or Skyscraper.
Rectangular - This option is best suited for adding to the main content of a page. This is an example with the options Photo on My Blogs, My Groups, rectangular selected.



Skyscraper
This type is best suited for placing on the left, or Right hand side of a page as you would a skyscraper banner.
This is an example with the options Photo Off, My Blogs, My Groups, Skyscraper selected.



Testing your APSense Widget

Once you have made your Radio button Selection for each item click on the "Generate Widget Code" button.
The page will refresh and you will see the result of your selection just below the box containing the code.

You can experiment using the different combinations of the radio buttons to see the different ways your "APSense Widget" will be displayed.
Just remember you must click the "Generate Widget Code" button to see your changes.

Once you have the layout you want, all you need to do is copy the complete code from the "Code box" and insert it into the coding of the page you want to display the widget on.

Important Note. To use the "APSense Widget" you must have the ability to edit the source code of the page you want to display the widget on.
If in doubt please feel free to message me for assistance.

This looks like an awesome tool bj! This may help those of us that use many different social networking sites link them together more and allow visitors to our pages on different networks see how we are using APSense to promote ourselves or businesses. I'm gonna try and put the tower banner on my rotatrix friends page right now! Hope it works =)

Hi Cat,

There is no reason it should not work providing you have the ability to edit the coding of a page in some way.
As an example your own website that you write, or as here in APSense where we have the html editors in our Business Centers and the Blogs when we are creating them.

I am pretty sure It will not work with UBB Code though.
If anyone finds that it does let me know.

Hi Bj,

It works great on rfn. The skyscraper fits perfectly in the provided vertical advertising space found in the profile edit area. I'm gonna leave it off for now because it really sticks out like a sore thumb against my black background =(

My hat is off to APSense for creating such a fun and useful widget, and I'm sure this will help APSense grow tremedously.

Have A Great Day

Thanks Bill,

I have often seen the term "widgets" used for years but had no idea what it meant.

That's a really neat tool to create your own banners for your APSense links or promotional spots..

Hat's off to APSense for the great work they are doing. They are pushing the Business-Social Scene to New Heights!

As usual you have some great info. I will try using it on my other networking sites. I am not able to rewrite code on my personal website so I cant use it there.

Hi Rosli,

yes the tower was designed with that position on a page in mind.

I would personally like to see a version in 468 x 60 form but right now it is a question of run the options we have and feed back /comments are being noted by management and in a couple of weeks or so they will review what else they can do to improve on it for us.
