Hmmm, here’s a first; Roc posting something useful AND intelligent! Yeah, yeah, laugh it up chuckleheads.
Was just playing around with the Twitter hashtag widget. Thought it might be slick to have that down the right hand column of my blog; maybe start promoting the #rocsgirls hashtag a bit more or something.
So I’ll stick with wordpress.com for now. Let someone else take on the headaches. I like to keep things simple.
But I figured why let this code go to waste? So if any of you want to put a slick Twitter hashtag widget on your site that updates in real-time, just copy/paste the code below, making sure to swap out the important things. If you have no idea what any of the code below means, probably just best to keep moving along, or you can just ask me in the comments below.
And that’s all it takes. Not quite the regular recipe you’re used to on a Friday, or a good workout routine, or a rousing story of one pilot’s plights in New Eden, but it’s all you get today.
whats it do?
It creates a little box widget that basically cycles through anyone posting with the #eveonline hashtag on Twitter. You can change the tag, and all the other arguments in the code. I didn’t write this code. Twitter did. I just implemented it for myself and thought since I can’t use it, other pilots might.
Nice code, but I suspect I’d just break something on my site if I tried using it. Thanks though!
We have put a box up like that on EVE Stratics. Right hand side. I don’t really sit for hours on end and watch it, but its a cool feature.
