As we mention from time-to-time (read: all the time), we’re working super-hard to bring out new stuff and improve the way you can find, share and submit competitions. We’ve announced some fun things recently, and we’re pleased to announce something we think is pretty cool today.
We were asked a while back how a blogger could show current competitions or updates on his site, and inspired us to bring out our Competition Widget. It’s a quick, super-simple, and totally automatic way of showing the 5 most recent submissions to Competition Hunter on your blog. If you’ve ever wanted a way to show your visitors new competitions – this dynamically updates in real-time, so it takes all the fuss out and needs no updating or fiddling, ever. It fits snuggly in the sidebar of a blog, and once it’s in, you never need to think about it again.
Best of all, it’s really easy to pop onto your site or blog. Nothing to install, nothing to maintain, and the widget will adapt to the style of your blog (i.e. it’ll assume your colours, fonts and sizes). You just need to copy this code and paste it into your sidebar code, and that’s it!
$widget = file_get_contents(‘http://www.competitionhunter.com/external.php’);
If for any reason you’re not sure of anything, are having problems, or would just rather us do it for you, we will handle everything. It’s a one-minute job for us, and we’re happy to help. Just email us at contact[@]competitionhunter[.]com
We hope it’s useful!
