wHooiz – Using it the "correct" way

wHooiz – Using it the "correct" way

I have joined fellow MVP Rob Farley in learning how to integrate wHooiz correctly (well at least the way it was designed) into Community Server.  It turns out that there are a couple of little tricks (thanks Clarke for the pointers!):

1) Modify your Community Server configuration file (communityserver.config – in the root folder of you CS installation) to allow scripts.  Note that the markup and html tags should already exist in the configuration file:

<markup>
    <html>

                       <script src = “true” type = “true” language = “true” />
    </html>
</markup>

2) Adding your profile to the About section of your blog.  In Community Server: Log in, Go to My Settings, Under the Settings tab select About My Blog, Change the About My Blog text box to HTML mode and add the following snippet:

<script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://www.whooiz.com/Profile.wp?Id=31′></script>

Here the 31 indicates your wHooiz profile Id

3) Adding your buddies list to the News section of your blog.  In Community Server: Log in, Go to My Settings, Under the Settings tab select Title Description and News, Add the following snippet to the News text box:

<script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://www.whooiz.com/Friends.wh?Id=31&fn=10&bg=220CDD&hrd=FEFEFE’></script>

(To get the correct snippet go to the Options page under your wHooiz profile)

You should be all setup now, until more features become available….
