Did You Know?: Using the Custom HTML Widget

While there are lots of great widgets out there (like the ones from LinkWithin or FeedBurner), sometimes you just want to add something else to your blog.  This could be anything from a Twitter or Flickr widget to an image that links to an advertiser's site.  You might even want to place Google Adsense ads in your sidebar.  It's simple to add all these things and more to your blog using the "Embed your own HTML" widget.

If you have code already for your sidebar, simply go to Design > Content. Select Widgets and then the "Embed your HTML" option and click the "Add this module" button.  You would then paste your code into the new pop-up window.

It will look something like this:

Once you've done that and saved your changes, you'll see the code that you added to your sidebar.  You can read more about how to do this in our Knowledge Base.
