Displays the latest entry on Polaroid|Blipfoto by a given user in a widget on your WordPress website. Note: you must have an account with Polaroid|Blipfoto to use this widget. If you don’t have one, you can get one for free.
Currently, Blipper Widget:
- displays the latest blip (image, title and date) in your Polaroid|Blipfoto account in a widget;
- takes you to the corresponding blip on the Polaroid|Blipfoto website if you click on the image or its title and date (optional);
- displays your journal name and a link to your Polaroid|Blipfoto account (optional); and
- displays a link to the Polaroid|Blipfoto website (optional).
The image in the blip is not stored on your server: the widget links to the image on Polaroid|Blipfoto.
