Linux Mint Widget for websites?

Postby Destry » Fri Mar 25, 2016 11:13 pm

I own several websites. Some are quite large. I do not do advertising on my sites because I hate ads and clutter from them for people to make a buck or two. However due to the nature and use of LM, and the suffering people are enduring with microsoft, I would really like to put a widget up on my sites to help people discover LM. Maybe a flashy widget that shows different versions of LM and shows the support behind it? Maybe have it as a flash video linking to linuxmint.com? Simple HTML script with a video link should do just fine. I could upload the flash video to one of my servers and link to all widgets from there. Any comments or anyone willing to put something together?

If you use WordPress -> Widgets -> Text

The Text contents:

I have blogger. http://nesaranews.blogspot.com
I will however upload the image to a hosted server and link to it that way. I am placing it under the picture in the left side.

It works and looks good! I linked it to linuxmint.com instead of the forums.

Thanks administrollaattori!
