Developer Central - Widgets

Widgets are code-units that you can embed within your site or blog. The following widgets are available for mashups

Lightbox Popup (Suitable for website feedback)

<script id="is-feedback-widget" src="http://thecha.ideascale.com/userimages/accounts/90/904490/panel-17386-feedback-widget.js" defer="defer"></script>

Note: The code can be placed in either the <head> or the <body> tag. And if you've added some custom fields and the lightbox is not big enough to contain all the fields, you may customize its width and height through query strings. For example:

<script id="is-feedback-widget" src="http://thecha.ideascale.com/userimages/accounts/90/904490/panel-17386-feedback-widget.js?width=420&height=480" defer="defer"></script>
