New Glogster Widget

The sharp-eyed among you may have noticed that we’ve added a new option to your Widget menu. If you have a Glogster account, now you can embed your posters directly into a wiki page, without ever leaving Wikispaces, and without having to copy any code.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to your page and click Edit.
  2. Click the Widget icon.
  3. Choose Poster from the Widget menu, then click the Glogster EDU logo.
  4. Enter your Glogster nickname and password, and click Log In.
  5. Pick the glog you want, and either Insert it into the page, or View a preview.
  6. Save the page.

It’s that easy!

We’re pretty jazzed, because this is the first widget we have that lets you embed media without copying and pasting complicated code and without leaving Wikispaces. But it won’t be the last. Let us know how it’s working for you with a comment below or an email to help@wikispaces.com.

    Dear all
    Thanks for creating a new feature: Embedding Glogster.
    Unfortunately Glogster does not allow to embed really many Video Types:
    No TED videos
    No Vimeo videos..
    and others.. I Tried to insert the link for the following Videos:
    http://phbern-is1-medpaed10.wikispaces.com/sandkasten+1 ..

    That’s not so nice..

    But that’s not your fauld..

    So I prefere just embed some text and add the video directly into the Wikispace-pages!
