Google gadgets - cool extras for your website

By Murray Bourne, 28 Jun 2008

Google Gadgets allows Webmasters (and bloggers) to include cool interactive stuff on a Web page.

You just find the gadget you want, copy its code, and drop it into your Web page (or blog post - but make sure you are editing the HTML and not using the WYSIWYG editor or it will mess up).

See the 3 Comments below.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
