Entrecard Inbox Feed

How to place an Entrecard Inbox feed into your blog's sidebar.

Several sites are offering use of their widgets to create a "you drop, I link" feature for entrecard droppers.

I have found a site that does it free, without forcing you to link to their site.

I am using the "classic" wordpress theme, so these instructions are for actually editing the html of my template. If you are using the new blogger, you can just follow the directions on adding a javascript widget after you get the code.


The "You drop, I link" feature of this can be misleading, because the links in the feed are coming directly from your inbox at Entrecard and will change according to droppers each day.

Here's how to do it...

First, go to Feed2JS... This link will open in a new window...
http://itde.vccs.edu/rss2js/build.php

Now, go to your Entrecard website and click on "Dashboard."

At the top of the page you will see images of the websites in your inbox. To the right, you should see the little rss image. Hover over that image with your mouse pointer, right-click, and then click on "copy the url address."

Now go back to Feed2JS and "paste" the url into the first URL box: web address of the rss feed. *You can also paste content by pressing the "ctrl" button and the letter "v" on your keyboard - at the same time.

That's basically it, you're done. You can also change some of the parameters of the feed by changing the default values.

Mine is set to:

  • show channel "title"

  • number of items to display "0" (shows all available - did not change)

  • show item descriptions "30" shows the first 30 characters of description

  • show item posting date "no"

  • open links in new window "yes" (this makes it easier to reciprocate the droppers



Now click on "Preview" to make sure it looks okay, then click on "Generate Javascript." Copy the code and then paste it into your sidebar - as a widget on the new blogger, or as pasted into your template under the "sidebar" division.

Now, back to dropping I must go...

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
