LOSFA's Web Widgets

A Web Widget (commonly referred to simply as a 'widget') is a small program that you can easily put on your website, blog, or personalized start page. The rotating images within the widget serve as links to the corresponding information on LOSFA's website. Since LOSFA maintains these web widgets they will not use any of the bandwidth from your website and there is nothing that needs to be installed or downloaded to your site.

  How do I use LOSFA's Web Widgets?

To use one of our Web Widgets on your page simply copy the supplied code next to the widget you want and paste into your page.

Copying the code is simple. Highlight the code with your mouse and either choose edit-copy from your browser menu, or hold down the control key on your keyboard and type the letter 'C'. Pasting the code is a little more difficult because you need to know where to go to paste it. You should search through your host sites help documents and frequently asked questions for information on where to go to install a widget. Once you know where to paste it, the hard part is over. Simply follow the instructions, and then choose edit-paste from your browser menu to paste the code. Alternatively, you can hold down the control key on your keyboard and type the letter 'V'.

The most important thing to do is to not let the code intimidate you. Once you have gone through the process once, it is really quite simple to add more web widgets to your site.
