    What exactly can I do with it? Something like inserting php or html?

    Just HTML, js etc; no PHP i'm afraid.

    I made this addon over a year ago, It still works and a post about it here reminded me to upload it to the resource manager. This forum is using it to create their affiliates block :)

    So, therefore, you can't explain what to do with this thing, nor provide some built-in widgets for your block. How would this compare, for example with widget framework? Anyone?

    (Understand that I hate it when the author of something can't fully define its purpose. :)

    I can't explain what to do with this addon because it is up to the user of the addon to choose what to do with it.

    OK, so it's bare bones. How about a screen shot as to how you use it?

    I don't use it anymore, but I noticed people were still using it so I uploaded it to the RM.

    And maybe provide a few built-in widgets or items as starting points to enter items in the sidebar. :)

    Hi Shady - this mod is wonderful - thanks a lot.

    I have one question:
    I would like to add this below the forum stats and above the facebook block.
    I tried to put the line the red place but it only works when I put it the Green place??
    Can you help?

    any plans on adding PHP or javascript support?

    Was hoping to use the teamspeak viewer script in this block, instead of editing a template like i am now.

    This is exactly what I wanted to ask. How do you implement more than one install of this modification?

    This is a great add on.
    But is there a way I can make the title bold and a different colour?
    I got HTML as a countdown clock but can I make this darker and a little larger somehow?
    Screenshot below showing the Olympic countdown clock:

    Why would anyone want to use this is beyond me. Widget Framework addon does this and much much more.
