How do I embed the EVClub widget in my blog? I really like the stats of the EV miles and CO2 saved shown in this link: gst.php?ev=178

Hi Joey!

Welcome to the EV Club, I love your site. Full of good info.
Re: EV Club Widget. I see that you are on blogspot. It should be possible (see http://s2kev.blogspot.com/) but I don't have exact directions for blogspot.

Here's what I do for wordpress.
1. Login to the Dashboard
2. Click Appearance --> Widgets
3. Drag and Drop the "Text" type widget to the sidebar.
4. Leave the "title" field blank
5. Cut and paste this into the field:
Code: Select all
<iframe src="http://evclub.org/gst.php?ev=178" align="center" width="245" height="195" scrolling="no" frameBorder="0" ALLOWTRANSPARENCY="true" align="middle" marginwidth="10" marginheight="3"></iframe> 

6. Tinker with the html to get it to fit on your blog.

Brian,
When you get some time, can you post exact directions for blogspot? Thanks!

For blogger.com/blogspot I did the following.

Go to the template view.
Add a new Gadget: "HTML/Java Script"
Add a title.
Paste the code you provided into the "content" field.

Thats it. I was missing the part about iframe. It is needed if the link is not static. Thanks for your help.
