Using Component Codes for Exta Widgets?

  • Apr. 27th, 2007 at 2:04 PM
I want to add a bunch of modules to my sidebar, but I'm very new to any coding. If it's there I can usually modify it to my liking, but I've never tried to create it. I was wondering what the limitations are on using other code in expressive.

I get the module itself would be dependent on the expressive layout, but is the content interchangeable? Can I use code from Component and put it in expressive?

If not, what are some resources available, I'm really just interested in gussying up the blog.

Any of the content used in the Components should be interchangeable, but I'd have to check on specifics. Component uses a lot of <TABLE>s, so you don't want to use any of the HTML, just the module. If I'm not making sense, let me know about any specific module to try. Standard disclaimer about no Flash/Javascript still applies, of course, and I'm pretty sure embedding is only allowed in entries.

But, you want to add more to the sidebars? It already loaded pretty slowly for me.. O.o

I thought that was because of the photobucket issues. Everytime I load the page in IE and hangs saying it's waiting for photobucket images to load. Or so I think. I really just want some links for my use so I could just add to the link list, but I wanted it purty ;)

I get what you mean about adding just the module content, I may play around with it later. Thanks!

It was loading the sidebar content pretty slowly, not just waiting for images. (On XP/FireFox BTW) Somebody who is better versed in the internal workings of LJ might correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the feeling that too much sidebar content slows down the HTML cleaner. Component layouts (like component_help's) tend to load slowly for me as well.
