How do I add this (www.linkwithin.com) to my site.
it says I have to add the code snippet before the tag (not below each story) in my blog template.
Does anyone know how I can do that?

Thanks for anyone who can help me?

Hi mishmo

I'm not sure if this can be added to your blog. Right now Yola is undergoing some maintenance stuff, so logins to the sites are disabled.

Once it's running... I'd like to play around with this and see if adding this is feasible. Then, I'll get back to you.

It may be a few hours before I'm able to test this out though - depending on how long the maintenance will be. Is this okay with you?

To see what you've gotten up to.
Thanks for your help!

Hi Mishmo

I've checked it out - such a cool concept.. but I am unable to implement this into the blog. Now... I noticed on the LinkWithin site, they may be able to implement this on your behalf.

If your blog uses a non-standard custom template/theme, we will need to add support for your blog manually, and we can do this only if the widget remains installed on your blog. Please email us at support AT linkwithin DOT com, and we will fix the problem, usually within 1-2 days. Thank you for your patience!

I tried to implement this in two ways:
1. I dragged an HTML widget over and placed beneath the blog and pasted in the code - no effect.

2. I opened up the blog manager, clicked on "Settings" and where the comment code would normally go, I placed the Linkwithin code there - no effect.

You can try both ways and send to them and see if they are able to come up with a solution.

If you do get a response from them, would you mind sharing on this thread? I'd love to be updated on this.

Hi Littleus (and everyone else who reads this).

I finally have the LinkWithin widget working on my site!

If anyone wants to have a look you can see it at:
http://www.michellesfoodandhealthsite...

To get it working you copy the html that is generated into a blank html
box at the very end of your page.
Then email the linkwithin staff and they will manually set it up.
(this is part of the page where the html code is on linkwithin website)
or get their email from the site.

Its really useful so I encourage everyone with blogs to add it!

Cheers,

Michelle.

Hello Oriol,

Thank you for contacting us. Have you put the HTML code at the bottom of your page? If not, please do that. It looks as though Mishmo then contacted the LinkWithin staff who followed up by manually setting it up. Here is a link to the contact page: LinkWithin. These are fantastic guidelines and I am confident that if you follow them, you will have the LinkWithin Blog up and running in no time.

Cheers!
