Widget Spotlight: Twitter

We're back with another widget for you.  This time it's Twitter!

If you also keep clients and business associates up to date on Twitter, you may want to tie in this widget to your website as well.  From any Twitter page, click on Resources -----> Widgets -----> My Website.  Select your widget of choice (e.g. Profile Widget) and type in your Twitter username.  Click 'Finish & Grab Code.'  Then copy and past your code into the iHomefinder HTML widget form (see below) or into the desired location on your website/website builder.

Widget Spotlight: Creating a Facebook Badge

Our last post on widgets showed you how to create an Altos Research custom widget in Optima 950.  Now we'd like to show you how to create a Facebook Badge using the same custom HTML sidebar widget. Creating a Facebook Badge is another great way to help clients and prospects find you on Facebook and stay connected to you and your expertise. First, go to Facebook Badges and select the Badge that you would like to display on your site.  Note: you'll need to log in to Facebook to access the code for the widget.  For this example, we selected a Pages Badge.  Then, clicked on button labeled Other, which will display a thin rectangular box with code for your Facebook Badge.  Copy the code and paste it into your website or sidebar widget within Optima 950. Here's the screen within Optima 950 where you'll want to paste your Facebook Badge code. Once you paste your code and save, you'll have a nice looking Facebook Badge on your IDX page or website similar to the image below.
