Have a presence on several websites? Have multiple RSS feeds that you'd like to merge into a single widget? Want to include your favorite blogs in one great widget? The Blidget Pro makes this easy by allowing the addition of tabs within a single widget.... yet another reason to Go Pro! Here's how:
Provide a Label and Select Add TabsIn the second part ("Customize Blidget Content") of the Blidget Pro creator, you will notice two relevant elements: 1. Label Entering text here automatically adds a label for your widget's content - placing it directly above the widget's body. This label appears in a horizontal bar which will also house other tabs. When adding a label, be descriptive but short. In this case, I have used the label "New Posts". 2. Tabs Creator Click the "Tabs" link to open the creator. Then click "Add New Tab"!
Choose the Tab's FormatFour great options: 1. RSS Feed 2. YouTube Feed (with video play!) 3. Vimeo Feed (with video play too!) 4. Hulu Feed (also with video play!) For this example, let's use the RSS Feed as an example:
Customize the Tab & Add an RSS FeedThree easy steps to get started: 1. Content / Source: input your feed's URL here 2. Tab Label: input the name of the tab and remember to keep it descriptive but short! 3. Layout: choose how the tab's content will appear - List, Slideshow or Bricks view
