Turn that hobby into a job – come and work with us in help and support!

We’re hoping the new school year is going well for all Edublogs users and we’re looking forward to providing you with some great blogging tools for the next year!

And we’d also like to say a huge thank you to all of you who have become Edublogs Supporters or looked at Edublogs Campus for your schools… you are the people that make Edublogs possible so give yourself a huge pat on the back!

But while you’re doing that, have a think about whether you’d like to take this whole Edublogs thing a bit further and come and work with us providing help and support for Edublogs.org and Edublogs Campus users!

That’s right, we’re looking for a help and support ninja.

Someone who can figure out how to make widgets dance, plugins gambol and posts and pages sing!

You’ll be working alongside the existing team, manning the forums, tweets and emails… and putting the EDU into blogging :)

There’s no specific experience required – except that you are an existing Edublogs or WordPress user – and naturally we have a preference for people with educational backgrounds.

What’s more, we’ll be looking at a flexible, hours-based, arrangement at first so that you can easily do this kinda thing alongside your current work… especially if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer already :)

We’re not saying that you moonlight per se…. oh, ok, we are… moonlight away!

So… if you’re interested, please contact us here (or by emailing support (at) edublogs [dot] org) and we can have a chat.

Let us know a little about yourself, point us to your Edublogs / WordPress experience and ask us any questions you might have.

Widgets, javascript, iframes and objects (and all that jazz)

After lengthy discussions and weighing up of the pros and cons we’ve decided to allow javascript, iframes and object code onto Edublogs.

This means that you can now just copy and paste pretty much most ’embedding’ code you can pick up around the web directly into your Edublog.

For posts and pages just click on the ‘Code’ tab and paste the code in there. For sidebar widgets just create as many Text Boxes as you need (under Presentation > Widgets) and copy and paste the code into them.

For example, say you wanted to play this classic game on your blog… simply go there, click on ‘Get Widget’, copy the code and paste it in your ‘Code tab and you’ll get something much like the below:

You can also use iframes to embed things like Calendars, put CoComment and Ligit in your sidebar or add live chat and extra Twitter options.

Why don’t you show us how you are using this new freedom!

Side note: As a result the Widgetbox, Box.net and Video Widgets will be replaced by this approach – so please recreate any widgets you currently have in Text Box form before we remove these widgets (next week).
