The code snippet widget (say that 3 times fast) allows you to embed third party applications, buttons, players, and well...widgets. All you need is the code. For this tutorial, I'll install a Facebook like button.
- Add a code widget to your Header, Footer or sidebar (Usually only one or two of these widget areas are available in a particular template). Leave this window open.
- In a new window or tab, go to the site where your desired button or app resides and generate your Code. As an example, you can go to http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like and setup a Facebook like button.
- Select the code shown to you so it is highlighted from beginning to end. Press Ctrl+C on your keyboard to copy the code.
- Toggle back to the Wizard. Now you can paste your code into the widget (Don't forget to name it).
- Click Save
Voila! Your code widget is activated.
