How to embed the Oldhammer Opponent Finder on your blog.

Hi All,

Since I had a question about how to embed the opponent finder on one's own blog, I made a little video.


I decided to have this one unlisted as the last video I put on youtube was not very well received, and it hurt my feelings. ;)

Anyway, I edited it down so that it's not quite as rambling. Hopefully you will find it instructive. If you already know how to do this you don't need to watch it and tell me how I did it wrong. :)

I'll try to summarize the steps in case the video doesn't make sense.


  1. Navigate to the opponent finder.
  2. Click on the Share icon.
  3. Choose the embed option and copy the code.
  4. Determine the size of the area you are putting it in (this can also just be done by trial and error, the width to height ratio is 1.33, you can manipulate it how you like.)
  5. Paste the code into your HTML post body text or HTML gadget added to your layout.
  6. Done.


So hope that works out for you, and that you can bring more friends into the fold.

Cheers!

  2. Great post Sean, just added one myself. You can also add: frameborder="0" style="border:0"
    to the iframe element to remove the ugly border.
