What is a widget?
A web widget is a portable application that you can install on your website, blog, social networking page or computer desktop. CBS News widgets allow you to embed our free breaking news and entertainment content on your personal site. Once the widget is installed, it updates itself automatically with fresh stories, photos or video.
Where can I use widgets?
You can install our widgets on social networking pages (such as Facebook), blogs (such as TypePad or Blogger), and start pages (such as iGoogle, Netvibes) or any personal HTML page.
How do I intstall widgets?
Most CBS News widgets provide simple one-click installation to sites like Blogger, TypePad, Facebook, iGoogle, and Netvibes. In addition, we provide a short piece of embed code which you can add to any site that uses HTML.
Can I re-size a widget to fit my site?
Most CBS News widgets are auto-scalable so their width and height automatically adjust to fit your page.
