Widget connect colour support announced

The widget can now be made to look more aligned to your site than ever with new customisable background colours on the  connect screen.  To achieve this is easy: just add &promptbackground= with your choice of colour to the end of your widget URL. For example, this one comes in a calming shade of Heliotrope:

(Quick list of hex colour numbers thanks to Wikipedia)

Premium widget owners will soon get additional options to change the “Connect” button image and use a background image suited to their site.

More info on the new options can be found here.

Of course it’s already possible to tailor the widget in many ways. If you’re looking for a quick guide try the Wiki on Prefs or check out these groovy implementations;

Happy painting!
