Tiny gadget for your blog

Do you have a blog and would like to show off your latest outdoor trails? you may do it easily: access your profile by clicking on your username at the upper-right section of Wikiloc, grab the HTML code under "Blog Widget" and paste it to your blog.

Here's mine:

That was a Sunday morning hack so if you detect some issue please tell me at jordi -AT- wikiloc.com and I'll fix it ASAP :-) I appreciate your feedback


Hope you like it!

Jordi,
Thanks but I don't understand: 'access your profile by clicking on your username at the upper-right section of Wikiloc, grab the HTML code under "Blog Widget" and paste it to your blog.'
Can you spell it out some more? Image somebody not as smart as you.

Please understand that since this 'gadget' shows the latest trails you've shared in Wikiloc, this instructions are only useful if you have already shared some trails in Wikiloc.com

If so, when you are logged into Wikiloc.com, your username appears at the top-right corner of every web page within the site. Click on your username to access the web page with your profile (photo, trails, favorites, etc..) and in there look for "Blog Widget" and that's where the HTML code is.

Hope it helps

Hi Jordi,

I'm trying to get the script to work in the blog-software on my synology NAS, but so far, I haven't succeeded. An other member of the Synology forum in Holland wrote me to tell that the script might not be 100% correct. According to him, the < a href="http://www.wikiloc.com"> Wikiloc < /a > tag should be outside (in front of)the script-tag.
(Doing this didn't solve my problem, but I thought you might want to know.

Kind regards,
Jeroen

Hi Jeroen,

Many thanks for letting me know. Have you tried removing completely the < a href="http://www.wikiloc.com"> Wikiloc < /a > code? It's actually a script that simply injects HTML into the DIV. Perhaps if you put it in another area of your blog? in Blogger for instance I know that cannot be embedded in some sections of the template.

Thanks

Hi Jordi,

it seems the blog-software of the Synology NAS won't allow you to use the script-tag. It'll removed it when you try to save your entry.
Too bad, I think your widget is great.

Thanks Jeroen for your help on clarifying the issue. There's little we could do but I guess the mini-wikiloc embeddable map of each trail might be still an option for you since it's enclosed within an < iframe >

you may read about it here: http://www.wikiloc.com/forum/posts/list/14.page

Cheers

Hola Jordi,
a la versió en català de Wikiloc el codi del widget surt tallat i incomplert. He hagut d'agafar la versió en castellà i canviar una mica el codi.

Gràcies.

Jordi Lopez Ramot said...

Bon dia, doncs moltes gràcies a tu per indicar-me l'error, ja l'he solventat i ja apareix el codi sencer a la pàgina.

Salut,
Jordi

Fantàstic, grècies Jordi, per cert has pogut mirar lo d'afegir a wikiloc la opció de veure el track com a google earth tour?

Salutacions
Joan

Jordi,

A la versió en català no diferencia les icones

Jordi Lopez Ramot said...

Hola, acabo de posar la versió en català i es veuen els icones bé. Tens algún exemple al teu blog on pugui veure el que et succeeix?

Sobre lo del google earth tour per ara no ho puc integrar però voldria investigar-ho per més endavant. Tens un exemple de kmz que puguis enviar-me per email?

gràcies
Jordi
