Interactive PowerGUI Blog Badges

This is part two of the PowerGUI.org blog badges instructions. In part one we learned how to add a PowerGUI graphics widget.

Today I will show how to add a widget dynamically showing your latest threads or messages at our PowerShell discussion forums.

As you can see I have one in the right-hand column of this blog and it looks like:

Thread_Widget

To add such a widget in wordpress, go to Dashboard/Appearance/Widgets, add an RSS gadget and paste the following RSS feed link (make sure you change my name to your PowerGUI.org name and replace space with %20):

http://www.powergui.org/rss/rssmessages.jspa?categoryID=55&RssUsername=Dmitry%20Sotnikov

For wordpress, the widget will then look like:

RSS_Widget

Type something like “My recent posts at PowerGUI.org” to the feed title, and select the number of items to show.

Then save the changes and you are good to go!

If you want the widget to display recent threads(rather than posts) use this RSS feed instead:

http://www.powergui.org/rss/rssthreads.jspa?categoryID=55

That’s it. If you want to add graphics – see my previous post.

If you are on platforms other than wordpress or have other ideas of PowerGUI widgets – please post them on your blog and add the link in your comments to this post. Please help us spread the news of PowerShell, PowerGUI and PowerGUI.org to a wider community!
